    Not knowing a lot of the Kinetico units, I would say that the valve that is to close when in service and not cleaning the other tank is worn and not seating right or that the piston that should be closing is not or it to is worn.
    You might be able to find either a used control head that some one is selling or get the part from some Kinetico dealer..

    With a phillips screwdiver, push down on the center piece of the clear plastic top and turn clockwise slowly. If the water stops, the valve is not advancing to the off position. If not, a drain seal is at fault.

    Water does not stop, would the drain seal be one of the 4 bigger plungers or could it be a o ring on the pistons?

    Is it possible to find a used or rebuilt head?

    The plungers are the pistons. The drain seals are a cone shaped rubber seal. They are on page 11.
