The only way you use salt is during the brine rinse cycle. So even though the settings haven't changed it's possible that the unit is running a regen cycle more often than it should or the brine rinse is running way too long. If you have the manual I'd try re-programming and set the hardness number to a lower setting. If that doesn't work you'll probably need a new controller.
