Thanks for your reply,
I have taken the valve system totally apart and checked all gaskets and lubricated them. Still I don't have the venturi draw the brine water into the system.
I have taken this flow plug out several times and it's in great shape...like new.
Still during the brine system water still shoots out instead of drawing brine water in
There are 4 little tabs on all four side if the hole, you really can't mis-aline the plug.
There is very little room for the plug to move.
Yes. I can draw brine water into the tube by sucking on the end where the tube attaches to the ventri.
I have checked the continuity, there are no cracks or breaks in the tube.
I have been working on it these last few days. The only conclusion I could come up with is the resin tank is bad. If it's the resin tank should I look at replacing the entire system or is cost effective to replace just the resin tank?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX appreciate your assistance.
I feel everything is working correctly
What about the brine valve stem. I noticed is locked up from pressure..... from the regeneration. I mean sometime is full extended and other time I have to push the rod down. What position should it be in? Should it stay sealed?
After blowing air into the resin tank, I ran the regeneration cycle. This is still the problem, instead of sucking the brine water in is just blow water out into the salt tank.
I think I have finally reached my saturation point. I have done everything possible, but replace the resin. I read an artical where someone has having the same problem I was have, and after doing all the things I did, he ended up replacing the resin in the tank and his system began working.
I really apprecaite all the time you spend with me.
Good Day Craig,
I fixed the softner. Apparently, all this time I was missing a gasket. I ordered and replacing all the gaskets for the Venturi and Main Valve. I noticed a large flat gasket (it look like the hard inter-cord of the Venturi) was missing. I don't know why, but the softern worked for a few years without it. It's hard to tell when something is missing when it was never there. I'm getting a strong draw from the Venturi. Hopefully in a few days I'll have soft water again.
Again, thanks for your asssistance, I really appreciate it.
