Problems with water softener
I bought my house in November 2009 and it has a midway 5600 water softener that was installed July 2000. I was an idiot and didn't maintain the softener at all. Last month I added salt to the brine tank and the water was yellow-brown for a couple days and then went back to normal. I got a test kit and have tested my water and it's basically not softened at all.
Just recently the water has turned yellow-brown again and I'd like to get this fixed once and for all.
I cleaned the brine tank out before I put salt in it and I haven't really noticed the salt level of the brine tank going down. I'd really appreciate any tips or advice on how to get this working again.
