Water Softener Problems Culligan Mark 89

I finally got the water softner to use salt and it appears to be somewhat soft but the water isnt very "slimey" after washing. I read somewhere that when adjusting the amount of salt during a recharge you also need to adjust the "Float" (In the salt storage tank). Thanks for the advice.

True, if the float is lower than it should be for say 4 gallons of water to do the 12lbs of salt then while the front many say 12 lbs you are only getting 9lbs of salt.
I will look to find the culligan manual that has the salt float settings to find out distance from float to floor for the different salt settings.
