    So when you try regen it, it just sits there and won't go thru its cycle? If that is the case, the regen pawl is broken or out of alignment. Have you taken the valve apart at all?

    To get those numbers, generally they are using fine-mesh resins with packed beds.

    If possible, flush all the resin into a large container and flush out the tanks. I would bet that you would see a lot of dirt and foreign matter in your resin. This can be separated and the resin...
