    I cleaned the salt tank and, unfortunately, took apart the float tube assembly. Now it just fills the tank with water, when I manually regenerate the cycle.

    Any ideas?

    Unless you can figure out what you did wrong, you will either have to buy a new float assembly, if Kinetico will sell it, or call them to have it replaced.

    Found it

    There is an archaic magnet and ball assembly inside the float rod. The magnet slides up and down to let the ball either block water or let it in. If the tiny 1/4" magnet isn't set just right, it doesn't work.

    Apparantly, the new ones don't work that way.
