I'm back. Last month I had a problem with my softener filling the brine tank with water during the brine draw phase. Well, I fixed that problem. The thread is here: http://www.terrylove.com/forums/show...ter&highlight= Since February 10th, everything has been working great.
I added salt about 1 week ago and all looked good. I was out by the system a few days ago and noticed a couple cups worth of resin on the ground where the drain hose lays. I removed the cap where the brine injector screen is and removed and flushed the parts. Things didn't look bad here. I removed the drain nipple and the rubber orifice plug and found alot of resin in this area. I flushed all that I could out of here and reinstalled the parts.
Last night, the system regenerated again. I checked things out before I left for work. What I found did not please me. There was at least a half gallon of resin on the ground at the discharge. With my truck lights shining through the resin tank, I could see that the tank is now only half full. This is an 8" resin tank. The water level in the brine tank is starting to rise incidentally.
We have been having a cold winter down here in SE Georgia. The temp last night got down to 28. We have had alot of nights like this and I still haven't built a pump house to protect my pumps. I have been throwing a blanket over the pumps and letting water trickle out a spigot at the well and at the house. Haven't had any frozen pipes. I am not too sure about the softener.
What do I do? What are all the parts in the resin tank? How much and where can I get resin? Help me, please.
