Water Softener not softening
Is the following indicative of anything?
Water softener was not using salt, and the water seemed hard, and sure enough, a test revealed the water was hard.
Removed the three screws from the head of the unit and cleaned the screen and venturi. In the past this has. fixed any of my water softener woes (as a matter of fact, this practice was recommended to me on this very forum years back).
However, still hard water. I am getting that the water softener is not interacting with the brine tank. I manually activated and sat down there through all of its cycles. Took the tubing off peridocially. Little to no suction. Certainly not enough to draw water out or into the brine tank.
So, would this be a telltale sign of anything in particular?
If the resin is spent would the water softener do this, not interact with the brine tank, or would it appear to be something elese?
The unit is 1989 Cullisgan N8
