Unless the softener was bypassed when the water heater went in, installing a water heater has no bearing on the softener working or not. Is it unplugged?

The water pressure in the entire house is very poor. If more than one water tap is open the water trickles out. The house has a Culligan Water Softner system. Is there a filter or some other home...


First make sure all the filters on all faucets (kitchen, bathrooms and even the dish washer and washer) are clean and not clogged, sometimes on areas with hard water you will experience sand and minerals to accumulate and clogged all filters. If all filter are clean with no minerals, then your problem could be the culligan filter, ask your sales rep to perform an inspection for minerals on all ending lines.

Hope this clear up your water lines. It happened to me.

My Culligan water softner is leaking from the coonection where the tank and the control head meet how can i fix this problem?


It depends on how old it is. Older Culligan systems(pre 1999) have separate inlet and outlet on tank and have washers that fit inside the "FEET" that slide onto tank. Newer style systems have center opening tanks with o-rings that seat on tank. You need to see what model it is. Bypass the system, run through a manual regeneration to relieve pressure, then you can change the washer or o-ring. They are only available at Culligan.

Foul Odor


Odor from the water softening system can be attributed to several causes.
The best way to see if it is coming from the softener is to by-pass the softener and run the COLD water only for several minutes and see if the smell continues. Now run the HOT water and see if smell is coming from the water heater.
Some causes may be:
1. Hydrogen sulfide in the water supply (the water chemistry can change)
2. Sulfate reducing bacteria. Almost all water supplies have sulfates and if bacteria gets introduced into the plumbing system it acts with the sulfates to create sulfate reducing bacteria. Which creates a rotten egg smell in the water.
3. Salt additives can have many different affects on water chemistry and organics in the water causing musty, fishy, swampy type smells.
4. If you have a system for Tannins using salts with additives will always cause foul smells as it harms the Tannin media.
5. The ANODE rod in the water heater degrades and gives off a sulfur type, rotten egg smell.

Silver water softner sounds like water running all the time


It is running to drain. The sealpack (main piston & sealpack are one unit) is bad and needs to be replaced. If you are handy you can do this yourself. There is a retrofit kit to help repair these issues. It is only available at Culligan. It is about $10.

Softner model hi flo 2 water volume about half


The flow packs are not opening properly. There may a restriction in the lines feeding the flow packs or the springs/ diaphrams may be bad. I suggest replacing both flow packs and making sure all lines feeding flow packs are free of oxidized iron and debris.

Water softner dirty water


you might also want to check into the piping in your house is it gavinized, cpvc or copper, this could also make a diffrence, you could also be pulling mud from the bottom of your well, the anoid rod in the water heater will keep you from seeing this in the hot side lines,suggest to have a test done on the water take a jar with a lid and take it to your local plumbing supply house and see if they can't have it tested then you will have all your answers, the test i'm in md. it cost us aprox 40.00 to have the complete water test,
