    Default Culligan Mark 812

    How does the water get from the salt tank back to the water system. I only have one line going between the salt tank and the mechanism. I see water going in to the salt tank but I can't see how it gets out.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    The control unit draws the brine from the salt tank through the same tube that is used to carry water to the salt tank. A description of the process is here:

    It may be, but is it about a disposable unit like a Kenmore?

    Except for upflow (counter current) regenerated types, all softeners ave the same components and work the same.
