Please check the timer for proper amount of recharge or back wash time. I think your "in water" for charging or back washing is controlled by a electric valve. Double check that it is closing when it should close. If necessary, check its voltage with a volt/ohm meter. When the water is suppose to be off, you should have no voltage at that valve, it must be closed. There is the possibility it is stuck partly in the open position by a piece of debris.

I am not a Culligan Expert but I am familiar with a variety of water filtering methods and systems.

Do I understand your waste water from this unit goes back to your septic system? Why? Is there a local code that requires that? Do you use salt water in this system? I think if you have salt water going into your septic, a burned septic pump is the least of your worries.

If salt water is involved particularly, or if it is just back wash water, can you dig yourself a dry well and feed this water into that dry well (a dry well is as simple as a hole in the ground filled with gravel and protected from dirt infiltration by a layer of straw).

I hope this helps you

Gas will not flow from tank to motor while running

Everybody had a crack at this problem, another thing would check is these engines sometimes have a primary fuel filter inside the tank itself. Drain the fuel and gently blow compressed air back through fuel line towards tank then rinse the tank out with fuel, refill and try run engine again

I just go this phone and it is complicated. It is a Touch screen phone and the Minute Minder was on "On" I thought I was getting a message while I was on the phone because the phone kept beeping. To turn Minute Minder off do not tap the button next to it that is blank but probably means off. Slide your finger across the line where it is highlighted and says Minute Minder to the blank square. Then the "Off" will show on the line. Don't tap it won't work--slide.

I have a ford focus 1.8 which has intermittent engine cut outs, the battery light will flicker when slowing down and the engine will cut out. We have tried changing the battery and asked Ford dealership...

Hello, When you install a different Battery, make sure it is charged to 13.2V-!3.6V. The problem you are having is in a lot of Ford products. It is a combination of the Anti-theft and the Battery Minder. Even with a jump-charge or a Battery charger attached while the engine runs, once you disconnect the boost, the charging circuit will cutout within 3 minutes. People have stalled at 70MPH with a dead Battery.

In the older Models what you describe would be a lazy Voltage Regulator. But with the Models with a Battery Minder, a drain on the system disconnects the power even if the drain is the running engine. Also check the wires coming off of the Alternator; sometimes if there is a metal line, the wire can chaff and discharge and trigger the other problems.

Would appreciate knowing what finally fixed this problem for you.

Dishwasher dishlex, continues to drain, ECO light flashing

if your dishwasher is constantly draining then it is most likely trying to remove something either water or debris that is stuck in either the drain line or the pump you would have to pull the unit out and remove the drain pump as well as the drain line and assure that the water is flowing into the drain sometimes ive also seen this happen when the drain goes into the disposal it sometimes gets clogged going into the disposal first thing you should do is look down the drain while its trying to drain and see if its a steady stream going into your drain or just a trickle this is one of the first ways to tell if you have a clog Thanks again Rick

Sink tap has overflow going directly into the drain and constantly running. This is a reverse osmosis system that is outside warranty.

If you mean the little weep hole on the tap is leaking? If so, then the drain line connected to the sink drain is clogged. Remove this line and see if it's draining free.(have bucket ready) Most likely it will be where it enters your sink drain at that fitting, clogged with sink drain materials.

There is a constant trickle of water from my mark 89.

If the constant trickle is going to the drain this indicates a problem with the piston / sealpack assembly. It needs to be replaced. When replacing the sealpack assembly it is best to also replace the refill piston.

Constant flow from my culligan soft minder twin water softner

A constant drip to drain or brine refill indicates a problem with the seals in the valve. You need to determine which tank is leaking. The piston and seals need to be replaced.

Automatic Trickle Questions

o you multitask while you wait for the shower to get hot? Brush your teeth? Make the bed? Maybe even pick out your clothes or iron a collar? Many of us do—and don’t know that while we’re feeding the dog or grabbing that second cup of coffee, two-and-a-half gallons of hot water per minute are funneling down the drain. The automatic trickle reduces the flow of the water as soon as it reaches a comfortable 95 degrees. This way your hot water is no longer running down the drain while you’re away from the shower. The automatic trickle allows your showerhead to warm your shower without wasting hot water and tell you (hear) the when your shower is ready. Evolve is the leading manufacturer of this kind of products.
