Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

I'm not buying the electrical cause for this problem. It sounds like you have aggressive water, low ph or low mineral content. It's possble your softner is working too well and taking to much out of the water. I'd suggest you contact your water treatment company and have a water test done on the water coming out of the softener.
