: I keep my softner full of salt, but I still have a bunch of rust build up. Like in my shower,sinks,toliet,etc. What could be my problem?
I recently had the same problem, and my trouble was I was using cheap salt and it turned to mash potatoes in the bottom therefore blocking the little holes and not providing enough salt. I would empty all the salt and make sure the salt is still "salt" not lumped together. then clean the tank and put the salt back it. My problem was really bad and this solved it.
