Its a most common problem with culligan seal pacs. If your softener is under 5 years old you have the worst softener on the market. Culligan was bought out about 5 years ago by a canada group. they changed every thing and nothing is made in the usa any more. You will have to buy a new one from culligan and pay over 90.00 for it. The old seal pacs lasted 15 years or more now your lucky if you get 2 years.

WHERE IS OUR SOFT WATER!? A few years back we had the Culligan man out to check our water because it was not soft (at the time, we had the Culligan Mark 100 model). After testing our water, the suggested...


The most frequent causes for intermittent hard water would be the gallon settings set too low causing the softener to run out of capacity or a meter that is not measuring the gallons. I would set the "hardness" setting on your culligan softener 30% higher than actual hardness. The softening resins they use are low in crosslink and very inefficient. Also make sure there are no toilets leaking causing hard water to "bleed" through softener. Iron filters require regular maintenance to clear oxidized iron from nozzles and the valve. Generally it is better to have the iron filter regenerate at least every 3 days to keep the bed refreshed.

Culligan medallist softener will not regenerate unless done manually, not sure how to set different locations. 1 set to present time, 2-2:00 am, 3-10, 4-10, 5-10, 6 is set to 71 degrees, 9 is set to U, 10...


How do you know it is not regenerating? When hard water occurs through system it may still be regenerating but not drawing brine or refilling the salt tank properly. First check to see if it is metering the gallons. Run water and check for the flashing icon. If it is not metering the gallons, the meter is bad, dirty (iron buildup) or the board is bad. Clean the eductor assembly on top of valve (under chrome plate) this may be plugged.
Here is a link to the manual for your medallist softener.

My water softener emptied im not sure how long it was empty for but I dont think it was too long I filled it with salt and now it doesnt work. It still regenerates but im getting hard water still any...


Do you mean the salt tank was empty? If so fill salt tank half way wait about 6 hrs for brine to develop. Manually regenerate softener 2x within 24 hrs. When the salt runs out the resin becomes saturated with hardness minerals. It takes at least 2 regeneration cycles back to back to completely restore soft water. Also the hot water will take some time to get soft. It will help to flush water heater after cold water is consistently soft.
I hope this helps,

Culligan Gold series softnerdrain line runs constantly in street.


The main piston/sealpack is frozen up and needs to be replaced. There is a retrofit kit available from Culligan to repair this issue. The reason it stops when bypassed is the water is shutoff to unit.

Hold the REGEN button down for 5 seconds. This initiates a manual regeneration. You can step the unit through the cycles by pressing the UP arrow.
