ok, that horse is dead, you can stop beating it now. Again, the index lever is part of the electrical timer mechanism,which only had a 10 year warranty, prorated after 5 years. There is a replacement digital kit available, to replace the timer units. Since this person has a Q2, there is no reason to confuse him with a conversation about a different series.
yeah, replumb, another few hunnerd bucks to have someone do it, and what if I like my Rainsoft? We are not all skilled in doing these things. I can't light a match without burning something down...........

I have two questions. One is, how do I know which way the poppet goes into the Triguard? My poppet has a pointy end and a long end. Which way does it go?
Second question is: I have found an orange granular salt looking residue on my faucet aerators and on my washing machine intake screen. Anyone know what it is. It must be coming from my softener.
I have no picture, but when I was reinstalling the Triguard after turning over my poppet, A bunch of the stuff came out via the bottom tube on the Triguard. The tube with the flow restricter.I cleaned out the Triguard and let the water stream out the tube to clear it. Now it seems to be OK. My Triguard seems to be working properly now. I'll check it when I regenerate this Saturday.
Another question, if I may. How do I tell if my unit is in the proper cycle? I was watching a regeneration, and saw that during the rinse cycle, it drew brine from the tank. It didn't draw brine during the brine cycle. I'm wondering if my timer is somehow running off cycle. Does the timer automatically reset itself after each regen? I've had to rebuild most of the control head. When I plugged it in after the rebuild it did automatically spin the control wheels, but I'm not sure it's in the proper cycle each regen.

I have confirmed it. I am losing grains from the softener tank. I guess it's time for a new softener. I'm going to go with a Fleck 5600, I think.
