    Last night I had to by pass my resin tank. It seems that I've developed a leak! It looks to be between the resin tank and the control unit. From what I've researched, it seems that the tank is cracked and needs to be replaced. So here is my question(s)
    1. Is this correct? Is there anything I can do?
    2. How much to replace just the tank?
    3. What is the difference between the kind I have, resin tank & seperate salt tank vs the ones at home depot that is all one unit (Kenmore)
    4. A plumber quoted me 1100 for a new softener. Is that about the price?

    1. It may be the tank is cracked. The valve may be a little lose. You can try tighting.
    2. That depends on where you buy it. Online would be most likely the less expensive.
    3. The quality. You take a chance with the HD or Sears units. Some last, some don't.
    4. You can get a good unit online for around $600.00

    Would there be some photos of the unit?
    What brand is the unit?
