My Rainsoft unit has been running fine for the past 12 years with nary a problem.....until today. It regenerated last night and this morning there was a salt taste in the water. Checked the unit and the brine tank has much more water than normal. It's about 3/4 full.
Checking the electronic display did not show anything amiss.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Chances are good that you need new O rings on the piston and the brine injector.
You may also need new shut off tabs.
Thank you very much for that information.
Would you happen to know where I might be able to get a schematic of that unit?
I am looking for a PDF, but I've had no luck... try RainSoft in Chicago.
Thank you for that information. I'll give them a try.
john, there could be multiple problems. some can be solved simply by tightening the compression fitting on the tri-guard to the piston o-rings. may be a bad flow control which is located in the tri-guard where the tube comes from around the valve body to the tri-guard. it allows only a 1/4 gallon a minute. and if its twisted or bad it could over fill the cabinet.
tightening the compression fitting on the tri-guard to the piston o-rings.
Be extremely careful when tightening the Tri-Guard down on the base.
The old ones are prone to cracking and they can not be repaired.
