    I have a Kenmore water softener that was run out of salt. Not a new thing. This time after refilling the salt and regenerating a few days there still is no soft water. Everything seems to be working correctly in the regeneration cycle but still no soft water. Ideas??

    Call Sears, if it's still under warranty. I myself use an independant treatment guy to test water and design the systems. Your salt setting may be too low. It may need to be set to regenerate more often.

    You probably have a water heater full of hard water. It will take a while to refill with soft water.

    Wherever I park the motorhome.
    Is the water in the brine tank higher than normal?

    Is there water running to drain in a regeneration?
