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. It sounds like you've done all you can. The softener may need to be re-bedded (assuming it is functioning mechanically) which means replacing the resin media in the softener. It may be more cost effective to just replace the softener.
