My water was way salty after regen. This started about a month ago and requires running the water for a few minutes before it is back to normal.
The brine tank was not emptying all the way during the fourth cycle so I did the following: checked for air leaks along the black tube running to the brine tank.
Pulled out, cleaned and checked the brine valve. Checked and cleaned the injector. Checked drain line that it was clear. Checked water pressure.
All of these things are ok.
My water is from a well and there is a sediment filter before the softener and about a month ago my sediment filter turned black from bacteria and the hot water smelled like sulphur so I raised the temp in the hot water heater which killed the bacteria.
I thought maybe bacteria was in the softener and since I don't have an iron filter I went ahead and ran iron out through the softener and then bleach.
I put salt back in the brine tank and did a regen again and it worked ok.
It drained the brine all the way down and when it was done it was not too salty.I need to test it again tomorrow to be sure.
The only thing left to do that I haven't checked is the computer settings but the info in the advanced menu is Greek to me the settings are:
H:13, C:50, SC:60, c6:00, u:28, L:38, HS L:10, PS L:7, no r, ro off, dp1:00, r no, d1:5
I had a couple of power outages recently so I'm not sure if these changed.
If someone has the PDF that explains these settings I sure would appreciate it if you would send it to me.
Thanks to everyone on this forum, I sure have learned a lot about water stuff the past couple of days and if you think there is more I should do please let me know, thanks.. [email protected]
