Thanks to all who helped on my water softener trials and tribulations -- If
my softener lasts 20 years I will be very happy.
It will be a couple of weeks before I am sure if it is fixed. I am on
day three and softener has only regenerated the one time I manually called
for it (even with the sensor back in place). For some reason when the tank
ran out of salt "it" knew to halt the regeneration. As soon as I added
salt, the regeneration started again. Not sure how it knows salt is in the
tank, but I guess I don't need to know this.
Can anyone tell me if the excess water in the tank between generations
is a problem? My perception is most components that are exposed to the salt
today are plastic, so long term corrosion is not an issue like it was in the
days when much more was made out of metal.
If not a problem, I'll simply monitor how often it regenerates for a
Thanks in advance.
