Last time my softener quit working, meaning our water is no longer soft, I called a service tech. He showed up, and cleaned an orifice I believe he said on the inlet. He said the inlet was plugged up, and water was just bypassing the system. We just had a sprinkler system installed, and they had to shut off the water to do so. After that, our water is no longer soft. I think they may have gotten some dirt in the line and plugged it up again. I did not watch the tech clean the inlet last time, but I went out there and took it apart as best as I knew how. I did not find any orifice on the inlet side. I did find a little scree, that was clean. With water running in the house, I can hear it trickling through the back of the softener where the valves are. Any help would be appreciated.
Sounds like he may have cleaned the inlet screen, or gallon counter, or injector. If u still want help I may need a little more info
