Culligan water softener manual

You are likely using a rock salt and what you are seeing is a build up of dirt and fine sand because rock salt isn't clean... it's got rocks in it. Clean your tank out and rinse it thoroughly with a hose. Be sure to clean out your 3" tube (brine well) and under the salt platform if you have one. Start with a clean salt like System Saver II or Crystal Plus. Never fill your salt tank over half full. Always let your salt be used down to the water level. IF the salt at the water level is soft and pasty don't add more; tip the salt tank until the salt is raised along one side or corner to above the water level when you stand the tank up carefully. This will allow all the water in the tank to become brine (saturated solution).

IF you are using potassium instead of salt, the brown is a natural component. Don't worry about it although it never hurts to clean your brine tank yearly.

I have a culligan softminder twin system that is releasing salt and water onto the floor also the sytem does not seem to be cycling thru correctly and the water is not coming out pure it is discolored and...

Check the salt tank too see if it is overflowing. There could also be a crack in the bottom of the brine tank causing it to leak. You need to determine where the leak is coming from. Many times water is leaking from the valve, running down the tank and collecting under/around the salt tank. As far as not cycling make sure the meter cable is plugged in, power to unit, etc. The valve may not be switching tanks, there can be many causes for this. Bottom line is By-Pass the softener until a service tech can come out. These Culligan twin tank systems (9000,9100,8500, Twin-Flo) are actually fleck valves so any water treatment dealer that sells/services Fleck valves can repair this system.

sounds like you need to get that pump off, take it apart and give it a good cleaning in vinegar. I have 135gal reef tank and do mine about once every 6 mos. You need to have cut off valves on each side so you can take it off when you need to. Go to They can answer any question you've got!
