    you can check to see if it is the aerator adding the water by removing the aerator and drawing water into a glass and if it doesn't have the air then it is the aerator causing the air like they are supposed to it could be lose brine line connections on the softener or the air check valve isn't sealing because it has something blocking it from sealing or it could be the valve you shut off sucking air around the stem packing

    You're welcome Mike, thanks for the feedback.

    Sammy, if you read this, maybe your air in the water is a valve stem leak on a shutoff valve.
