Water softener (or "hardener"......)
Posted by Tom on April 18, 2003 at 09:09:49:
here's the problem, my water softener seems to be working only some of the time. while in the shower, the water is intermittently "hard" (sticky, tacky) and "soft" (slimy). There is a distinct difference in the feel of the water. The softener (2 tank system) does suck the water out of the brine tank but could there be some sort of blockage in the mineral tank preventing the water from being soft at all times? When the water turns hard, there is not good pressure, no hot water, and the shower head "whistles". Any thoughts? the valve is an Autotrol series 255/460i
