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.

My softener is a Culligan Mark 89. Water looks clear but is real salty. I bypassed the system and purged the lines to get rid of the taste.


Call Culligan for service. You have a serious problem as it sounds like your resin bed is not going through the backwash cycle before returning to operate mode.

Normally when your water softener goes through a recharge cycle, a solenoid operates to bypass the system while brine (extremely salty water) is drawn into the resin tank to perform the ion exchange process. This is a timed process. Once it completes then your softener switches into backwash mode where the resin bed is flushed with clear water. Finally at the end of the recharge cycle the softner switches back into normal operation.

This is not something that you can fix yourself. Contact Culligan immediately.

Culligan wg 1035 water softner bine tank will not empty. water getting hard I have checked the valves in the head and they seem fine.


The eductor assembly is plugged or the refill restrictor in top of float assembly is plugged. The eductor/injector draws the brine in during regeneration. These need to be cleaned to remove any oxidized iron or sediment . Do you have your owners manual for your Water Gard system?

Leaks on the top of black box of culligan water softner under sink system


Is this a reverse osmosis drinking water system? If it is it is an H8 RO. If so shut the water off that feeds the RO. The leak is probably coming from one of the fittings, they can be cut by the compression fittings and leak.

My Culligan MC450S water softner has a blank flashing display. Water seems to be constantly running through the softner and pressing any display panel buttons has no effect.


This system should be under warranty still. If it is running to drain constantly bypass the system and call Culligan for service. Unplug it for 2 minutes and it may reset.

It looks that water is leaking from the - Culligan water softner


Look down the tube (where the float assembly is) there should only be about 10-12" of water in there. For water to reach the brine tank over flow the tank would have to be 3/4 of water. Brine tanks can develop leaks over time if they were set on uneven ground or if any rocks or debris are under it. If there is no evidence of water running down the side of the brine tank this is the most likely cause. Also if it has been leaking for some time there will salt buildup around the brine tank. Check the water softener for any leaks also. At times a small leak from the softener will find it's way over to the brine tank and collect around the bottom of it.

Water softner problem, does not refill water to brine tank


There is .25 gpm flow restrictor in the top of the float assembly, It may have sediment in it. Unscrew the cap on float top and check the restrictor. When you hook it back up run the system to refill (last cycle) hold the float stem down until all the air is purged from float assembly and see if that works. Also the float ball (foam) may have slipped top too far and is shutting off prematurely. If this does not work it is in the valve which has small pistons, diaphrams and springs to control the cycles. Each cycle also has a solenoid which makes these components work. You will not find a service manual for the Mark 50 valves. They are obsolete unfortunately and parts are no longer available. This valve was made for nearly 40 years and was the hallmark of the Culligan line.

Constant flow from my culligan soft minder twin water softner


A constant drip to drain or brine refill indicates a problem with the seals in the valve. You need to determine which tank is leaking. The piston and seals need to be replaced.

My mark 812 water softener just lets the water run out into the drain cant stop it unless I shut the water off


sometimes the heads go bad on those and they get stuck in a regeneration cycle that just flushes the tank out. put it on bypass or call your softner maker and alot of times they will help you diagnose it and send you replacement parts. also some of the softner heads use small electric motors that get siezed as well
