I have a Rainsoft system in my house and know absolutely nothing about it. This seems terrible because I have lived in this house for almost 8 years now. I do know that sometimes it goes through a regeneration process that last for a long time. As far as I can tell it is set to do this in the wee hours of the morning, 3am. There has been a couple of times where I have heard it at 6am on my way to work and when I get home in the evening around 5-6pm i can still hear it. It becomes such a nuissance that I go out there and just start messing with it, just so it will stop.
Anyway, I have decided to try and educate myself about the system I have, however I have found zero information as to what model I have, nothing on google turns up anything close to what I have. I have however taken some pictures of the setup and have them hosted. I am clueless as to how the timers shoud be setup and what the manual regeneration and manual backwash dials mean and do.
To be honest, I dont know if this system is even working right. I know that something is wrong with my water lines in the restroom. There is some kind of build-up in the water lines in the shower, because the back pressure is so great that when I turn the water on in the bathtub, the back pressure forces water out of the showerhead, and the shower is in the off position.
Any information would be helpful, like I said, I know nothing about this system.
Below are the pictures I took. The salt tank sits on the far left. The cylinder bottle on the left has a label on it that says "Water Softener" and the cylinder bottle on the right says "Water Treatment".
