If you are in the US then the one that has one should be able, if Canada then that one will not send to Canada..

Water Softener Problems Culligan Mark 89


Hello.
I have a Culligan Medalist softener that was manufactured in 2001. I bought it used (private sale) and just had it installed by Culligan. It has a small stream of water continually coming out the drain hose. It sounds as if I might need a seal pack? Any ideas on where to get one and how to install? Thanks.

If the unit is in service and there is water going to the drain then yes the main piston and seals most likely are the reason for the season..
There is a site that has one for sale at a very good price..
Drop an email, it is in above post..

Thank you for the quick reply.
Yes, would greatly appreciate a link to this seal kit. This seem to be a common issue with Culligan units, but I cannot find much information on getting a kit and install instructions. I am fairly handy and wouldn't mind giving this a shot. Thank you!

Not a problem, I have a few for my customers that have culligan units, but they are more than what this one seller has for sale.
Every system out there has challenges much like what you have going on with your culligan unit.
Water going to the drain is a sign of seals not right or a piston with some nicks that has to be replaced.
Autorol valves have the flappers that can do the same thing and they have to be replaced when they are leaking.

This is like any car or truck engine that has rings go bad..

I have a Culligan Mark 100 with the same symptoms and wonder if someone can direct me to a source for a seal kit for it.

There is a link, drop a line and it can be sent.

The kit that is for sale will work on the Mark 100, it is a full kit with many parts.

Water Softener Problems Culligan Mark 89


Hi All,

I as well have a Culligan Mark 89. My problem is that I was continusly leaking from the drain line. I changed all the o rings and that resolved the leaking. My new issue is that now when I manually regenerate or let it go on schedule the water doesnt seem to be soft at all. I have upped the salt to 29 lbs for the regen and still no difference. Any help would be appreciated.

Is the salt getting used?
If salt is getting used then there is either a challenge still in the valve that is letting un treated water past the system and into the house or the resin bed is bad.

I do notice the salt diminishing each time I refresh. How do I go about checking the valve. I think I stated before that I am familiar with the unit as I have already replaced all the O rings. Thanks again.

If you are using salt when you start a manual regeneration there is no problem with the injector or brine piston.
Make sure that the bypass piston red and blue ends has the blue end all the way in.
Make sure that there is not another valve that should be closed ... open.
Make sure that the water has only one way to go , and that is through the system.
