    Some of the reasons for salty water are:
    Drain clogged, too much refill, partial draw for a few regen then complete draw. Knowing the type of unit will help us determine the best course of action.

    What brand of softener is it? Some manufacturers have refill as the initial cycle (dry storage) as opposed to the last cycle (wet storage).
