I have cleaned the venture and nozzle and made sure it was put back correctly. water is flowing out of the tank through he hose with plenty of pressure. What would be the next thing for me to check

Can you give me the model number of your softener?
Expert:  WCohn replied 7 months ago.
There is usually a float switch inside a tube. It may be stuck. It's not uncommon for you not to have much water in the tank. It depends on the salt level. I would make sure the float switch isn't stuck and as long as everything is functioning I'd say it's ok.
