Water leaking Help!


Hi,

I'm pretty new to my home, which has a ph neutralizing system. When I first moved in the system semed to work fine, purging once a week through a backwash line into the slopsink in my laundry room.

At some point it stopped working. I noticed the control dial always went to "service" even after I manually put it on "start." Manual regeneration worked fine, but I wanted the system to work as designed.

The calcit was low so I added to the full line. Now, not only did that not fix the problem, the backwash line has a steady stream of water running into the slopsink. I can't get it to stop!

I don't have a manual for this unit, can't find one online and don't even know who the mfr is.

Can anyone help please?

It seems to me that the backwash line is getting a siphon effect, if that's helpful

Let the system purge one more time and it spit out a big chunk of calcite sediment into the sink. All seems fine now.
