Water Softener: How much brine should be in the tank?
My softener fills the brine tank until the Float / valve shuts it off. Is this normal? It seems like an excessive amount of brine to me. During regeneration all of the brine is sucked out of the brine tank normally. The refill time is set for 8 minutes but the float/valve shuts it off way before that. Seems like an excessive amount of brine (waste of salt)
I dont have a manual on the unit but it looks like a Fleck Econominder 2500 series and the capacity gear goes up to 24000 so I am assuming it has a 24000 grain capacity resin tank ?? If I knew how much brine is actually needed I can adjust the refill time accordingly.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
