Air in pipes after water softener regeneration


Some friends of mine have an older Culligan Mark 50 water softener (from 1987). Usually in the morning, after the softener regenerates, well I think that's what it's doing, there is air in the pipes and while I don't think it's causing a problem, the sputter in the morning is irritating.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I am pretty sure my system does that too, mine is also older. I just live with it.

It didn't always do it...so that leaves me to believe something is wrong...

No troubleshooting guide in the manufacturer's literature/operating instructions? Maybe call their technical help line.

Check the fittings on the brine line that runs between between the brine tank and at the softener control valve (if a two tank system) (if a cabinet model look inside the cabinet to find the brine line between the well fitting and the control valve). A loose fitting can allow air to be drawn in during the brining cycle. It can also cause incomplete regeneration.
