I have replaced the resin/gravel in water softeners where the head unscrews from one large hole at the top of the tank -- makes removal and installation of the resin/gravel straightforward. No problems here.

However, I am now trying to replace the resin/gravel in a Culligan Mark 89 water softener. When this type of head is removed, there are two small holes at the top of the tank -- makes removal and installation of the resin/gravel MUCH more difficult. My best guess is that getting the old resin/gravel out and then getting the new resin/gravel back in will require some kind of power flush and lots of patience.

Has anyone actually changed the resin/gravel in a Culligan Mark 89? Any tips will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Hoyt

That unit is a dinosaur. Save the trouble and just install a new softener.

Yes, it is old but still usable.

I have rebuilt the head on this unit a number of times over the decades, so I can almost do it with my eyes closed. For so many mechanical parts, once rebuilt, it just keeps going and going.

While the design of the Culligan Mark 89 resin tank (two small holes on top) makes resin replacement more difficult, it has been done.

Anyone that's been there, please chime in.

Thanks,
Hoyt
