My Extra Pure water softener with Pentair controller model #

Customer Question
My Extra Pure water...

My Extra Pure water softener with Pentair controller model # ***** is displaying call dealer for service

Contractor's Assistant: Sometimes plumbing issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Plumber I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.

You know everything I do. It does seem that the brine tank does not fill with water properly

Contractor's Assistant: Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Plumber about your situation and then connect you two.
