    I had to manuel regenerate the water softner and it wont regenerate on its own. The water taste salty and is cloudy. I cleaned the brine tank completly out and put new salt in it. When I run the water in the house I can hear the gears turning but wont regnerate and also the brine tank is that suppose to have water in it at all times or is the water suppose to drain out.Help dont know much about water softners and how they work. Ive been doing alot of reading but I havent found anything to in depth.:confused:

    Neither do I know very much here, but I do have the same softener. The water passing through the unit turns the gears that turn the valves during regeneration. So, it should be regenerating if the gears are turning, and I do know the entire mechanism needs to be protected by a water filter to keep things from getting plugged up inside.

    When my brine tank is low on salt, I can see 3 or 4 inches of water in the bottom. But when there is plenty of salt in the tank, I never see any water.

    I have also done a lot of searching without ever finding much info for my Kinetico, but there are some folks here who know a lot about them.

    If you have a problem with a Kinetico, you probably have to call them, because, at least here, they do not sell parts or service manuals for them.
