How can I put my Kinetico water softener back in service?


As the title indicates, i'd like to put our Kinetico water softener back in service.

How would I go about doing this? What filters and things do I need to flush and check?

The unit is a Kinetico 60 water softener which the original owners of our house installed post-1996. I'm crossing my fingers that it won't cost too much to get this thing working again......

Specific advice and steps are welcomed.

Make sure the bybass is closed. You are using solar salt, which I don't recommend. I also don't recommend putting any more than half a brine tank full of salt. You make have salt bridging.
Do you know how to manually regenerate it?

Why not just go on line and google the make and model and down load a manual so you can get up to speed on the one you have instead of just some genenal guesses?
