Getting a water softener going after sitting for a long time
My culligan mark 59 is going out and my sister has one in her garage she isnt using. She bought it new, had it installed, used it in her house for 3 years and was happy with it. She got married, sold the house and took the softener with her. Her husband already had a softener. Its now been sitting 6 years in a heated garage. She is going to give it to me and was wondering if its worth hooking up. I plugged it in and booted right up. I was thinking of hooking a water hose into it and running it through a cycle first. Would you replace the resin before plumbing it up? Is it even worth messing with? Its an auto-trol 1 cubic foot and she paid about $1,000 installed.
