Question about Microwave Ovens
Just wondering if weather conditions or chemical again have affected this situation. I suppose that's a possibility. Then again, some slight aging factor could be going on with the softener. This excerpt from the link I will provide, might be happening to you:
Over time, the ion exchange resin beads become saturated with calcium and magnesium ions. When this occurs, the tank must be recharged by flushing with a salt brine solution. Sodium ions reclaim their position on the resin beads, and the calcium and magnesium ions are released into the backwash water. The backwash water then exits the tank and is discharged to the wastewater treatment system. The number of times the tank is recharged and the amount of wastewater generated depends on a number of factors, including the hardness of the water, the amount of water used, the size of the water softener, and the capacity of the resins to remove calcium and magnesium.
Here's the link:
Hopefully this will help. I tried to google "softern" and didn't come up with anything, so I couldn't find any specific information for you, sorry.
Anyway, good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.
