    OK. Not doing another manual regen. Hopefully the problem is resolved.

    Thanks for the help.

    Just noticed the "foamy/salty" water sample I saved from last night has a bunch of turquoise sediment in the bottom of the glass.....

    That's the color of corroded copper tubing. What does it look like in a clear glass instead of this blue?

    That is a clear glass, the water has the same turquoise tint.

    It does look like copper corrosion. What is the PH of your water?

    Then something may be casting a blue tint reflection on the glass because I see blue above the water in the glass, especially on the left side and front of the glass. Try a clear smooth sided glass.

    I've treated a lot of aggressive/corrosive water and have never seen anything like that before.

    it only happened as a result of the foamy/salty water.

    That sort of copper corrosion can be a result of either high or low PH. In the North East we get a lot of low PH water conditions. I suspect the foamy/salty water may have dislodged that corrosion from inside your pipes which is why I asked if you know the PH of your water.

    i don't know the ph. maybe i can have it checked at my pool supply place...

    if it is copper pipe corrosion, wouldn't it have shown in the water when i put the water in the glass from the faucet? once the foam went away, the water appeared clear until i let it sit overnight.

    Wait a minute... are you saying the sediment in that glass wasn't there when you poured it, but showed up in the glass the next day???

    The bluish stuff in the glass, does it happen to be mushy? Or is it grainy?

    Unfortunately the wife tossed the sample last night. Hopefully it won't occur again....
