Water sofener brine tank over flowing, Help!
Hey guys, Great forum! We recently bought our first house and haven`t had many problems until now. I have an older rainsoft water softener model# AM1054CT. The brine tank recently overflowed and I`m trying to figure out why.
There is no float to speak of in the brine tank, Just a pvc tube with a hose going to the bottom of it. On the main filter unit there is a small canister filled with water that has a small plastic ball in it which I assume shuts off the water to the brine tank. The problem is the ball just floats in the middle and won`t go up and stop the flow unless I pull the hose off and put my finger over the exit hole. At this point I`ve tried everything so before I pour a bag of salt back in and hope for the best do you have any suggestions?? If pictures would help I`ll take some. Thanks! charlie
