The amount of water in the brine tank is controlled by the settings for the softener valve.
1. Some softener valves put the water in the brine tank to make brine at the end of the regeneration cycle and some put it in about 2 hours before the regeneration cycle. If yours is of the latter type there will be very little water in the brine tank most of the time.
2. Even with softeners that add water at the end of the cycle the amount can appear relatively small--each gallon of water dissolves 3 lbs of salt and with a small softener and/or one set up to regenerate with a low salt dose the amount of water could be at little as 1 to 2 gallons.
