At the top of the float assembly in the brine tank is a round nut that unscrews. Be careful when pulling this out. The refill flow restrictor is inside this part. There is probably some debris plugging the refill restrictor so it is not re-filling the salt tank with water. Also take the float assembly out and clean it thoroughly. The slots at the bottom where air check sits can become plugged with iron and restrict the refill. If all of this is fine check the eductor/injector assembly. From there it is the refill piston that may be at fault.

How often should my softener regenerate


the regeneration period is set on the water consumption
after a set amount of water is used , it should regenerate automatically
use quality water filters prior to the softener to remove mud and particles that all affect the regeneration process
regeneration is the process of removing the elements that have been collected in the machine and to replenish the salt content in use

Brand new softner full of water


Your injector is that part of your control head that switches to allow salt brine to be sucked out of your salt tank (during regeneration) or shifts a couple of mil to add water to your salt tank to make brine (at the end of the regeneration). Your injector is either stuck or the venturi in it is blocked up with some kind of debris. Your manual should tell you how to clean it or, at the least, diagram where it is and how to access it. If you lubricate it you must use a silicone based lubricant; Vaseline or oil based lubricants will make the rubber O rings old before their time.

Aqua Systems water softener isn't using salt when it regenerates. Water isn't being softened. Have manually regenerated three times -- goes through the cycle but water seems to be unchanged. Any troub


check that the small hose to the pickup in the salt tank is not blocked or loose allowing air into the unit rather than the salt water. IT runs on a venturi effect so any air leaks will not allow the water to be picked up. Download the operating manual for the unit as it has a detailed operation including fault finding and over hauling of the unit.

Water in salt tank looked bad so i drained it should i put a couple of gallons of water in the salt tank after draining it to get circulation back again ?


The main problem in water softening units is that people continually use pool salt because it is cheaper. Most find eventually that it is not as it blocks the medium in the tank with sediment and rubbish. You may have to replace the medium in the system and restart the regeneration process Best policy is to use only kiln dried water softener salt It IS different.

Cloudy/salty water, stuck bypass valve


water in your salt store is normall. it is commonly called brine. this is purely a cleaning agent of your water softener to regenerate the media. you do not drink this water nor does your water pass through this. it is only pulled through into the unit when regenerating.ie. this piston is in a position which allows the water to flow through a v enturie pulling the salt. water will sit in the brine tank always to be ready for the next generation and to be at the correct brine dilution so it's important to maintain the salt level above the water level. cloudy water is nirmally air bubbles which should settle out within a couple of minutes . if it tastes salty I suspect your regeneration waste water is contaminating your supply feed. like seeping back into well or tank .

the salt in use should water softener salt and nothing else
there is water added to the salt crystals up to the overflow hole
during regeneration that salty water (Brime) is drawn into the unit and upon finishing the process that reserve is refilled for the next time
there is little salt actually used during the regeneration process ( around 4 regenerations to a 25 kg bad )

What is Salt Bridging in a Culligan Water Softener


Salt bridging can occur in any water softener "salt tank". A salt bridge occurs when a hard crust of salt develops across the salt tank when the salt wicks up moisture. The salt does not fall down in the salt tank in between regenerations and a "bridge" occurs. It may look like the salt tank is full but there will be a hollow area at the bottom of the salt tank and not enough salt to develop the proper brine for regeneration of softener. This generally happens when the salt tank is a least 1/2 full of salt. If the system has a separate salt tank, shaking the tank will break the bridge usually. Gently poking a stick at the bridge can break it up also but can damage the salt grid if you poke the stick too far down in the salt tank. Certain salts, such as pellet salt are highly prone to this problem. Using Dura Cube, Hardi Cube or Solar salt will greatly reduce the chance of bridging. Any time a salt bridge occurs it will take 3 regenerations of the water softener (in 24 hrs), after fixing it, to regain the reserve capacity and totally soft water.

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,

Hard water, salt in in tank, what do i do


Make sure there is not a "Salt Bridge" in salt tank. Salt tank should always be at least 1/2 full of salt.
You may have just run out of soft water, run 2 manual regenerations in 24hr period. If no soft water still. The eductor assembly is plugged with iron or sediment and needs to be cleaned out. The eductor assembly is where the brine is drawn through to regenerate the resin.

Where to put the salt? and how to flush it? thank you wg844


Dump the salt in the separate brine tank. Always keep salt/brine tank at least half full. If you want to run a manual regeneration push the regen button. For delayed regeneration (2am) push once, for immediate regeneration push twice.
