I have a Kinetico water treatment system with Culligan sulfur filter. I replaced my old Culligan softner with a Kinetico system I obtained from a friend. The unit has been serviced by Kinetico with all upgrades and new resin. When placed on line for the first time a dark amber lipuid passed throuigh the drain. After that my water in the house was discolored. the Kinetico Tech., who was present, and started the system said it was the result of the new resin and would clear up. It has now been three weeks and the water remains discolored.
If I bypass the softner and let the water flow only through the sulfur filter it will clear up in a couple of days. If I then direct the flow through the softner and sulfur filter the discoloration comes back. Then If I bypass the surfur filter and use the softner only, the water will also clears up in a couple of days. The well water is clear with no discoloratoin.
The Kinetico tech. that installed the kinetico system placed it before the sulfur filter whereas with the Culligan system the sulfur filter had been plumbed-in before the softner. Could this be the problem, or are the two systems just not compatible?
