Question about Culligan Sales #SY-750S Under Sink Water Filter

1 Answer

Two years ago I changed the size of my Culligan holding tank under the sink to a bigger unit and at the same time put in a culligan water softener that also removes chlorine. I also changed the culligan water tap. I get this white clear sludge that occasionally comes out of the tap and hangs there. It can be removed but if this is bacteria build-up this can not be good. What is the cause? Water for the entire house including the culligan system goes through the water softener minus the chlorine. Should I put in a divertor to have non softener water go to the drinking system? Or is the problem a bad tank or a bad tap? It is interesting that a neighbour has a culligan water softener that does NOT take out chlorine but still has the same guck coming from her drinking water tap on occasion. Suzanne from Ontario

Culligan reverse osmosis filter system has stopped providing water from the sink mounted faucet attached to the system.


Since unfiltered water went through it for a couple days, I would guess you have mineral build up. If this is the case, be careful about trying to use it. There are certain products you can buy to unclog the pipes. Most will have you pour them down through the pipes connected to the polishing filter. If you can take the pipes apart, I suggest going pipe by pipe to see where the build up is.

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.

I have a Culligan AC 30 aqua-cleer drinking water system;after changing the particle filter and the carbonfilter , the storage tank does not fill.I have pumped air in it to pressure 0,7 bar.


When you put air in the tank did you make sure all the water was out of tank? In a three gallon tank there should be 7 lbs of air, 10 gallon 10 lbs of air.
There can be many reasons for no water in tank.
1. Bad bladder in holding tank. No back pressure on membrane (all water going to drain)
2. Faulty membrane (all the water going to drain)
3. Bad capillary tube (all the water going to drain)
4. Plugged check valve at top of membrane (no water)
5. Faulty water feed valve (piercing valve)
6. Fines from post carbon filter have plugged up the manifold (head) of RO unit.
7. Bad valve on RO tank
8. Plugged drain line

Run the tank empty of water at least 2x. This should take care of problem. You really should dump 2 tanks of water each time because carbon fines can get in the tank when changing new filters.

We have a RO system purchased from Culligan. It only gives about 1 glass of water at a time, after changing the filters. Can help? thanks. G. P. Jani


This usually indicates low pressure in storage tank. A 3 gallon tank should have 7psi pressure when completely empty. Also if the unit is fed by a piercing valve it may be faulty and not supplying enough water to RO.

Leak at one of the fittings on my Culligan RO system


Too much pressure in holding tank will not cause leaks in the RO unit. All too much pressure in tank will do is cause low or no product water in RO tank. Older Culligan RO systems (H8, H83, H5) had fittings that used metal locking washers and these can cut the RO line after the RO has been moved around while changing filters. Newer styles (AC30, Water Tower) use quick connect fittings and the RO line may work loose after filter changes and system being moved around under sink.
Turn the incoming water off to RO, turn the water off on RO tank, open the RO faucet to relieve pressure and pull the line off feeding the RO tank, inspect (you may want to cut off a small portion of the line at the filter) check the o-ring and re-install.

My culligan water softner just keeps running .


It is most likely running to drain. This is an indication that the seal pack is seized up, generally from a bent piston. You need to by-pass the softener and call Culligan for service. If you are handy there is a retro-fit kit available from Culligan to remedy this problem. It takes about 1/2 hr to install.

Culligan medalist softener: Water continues to run thru drain line even after regeneration ends. What to do?


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.

Most Culligan brine tanks have a lifetime warranty.
