So by adding the extra 2 gallons of water to the brine tank I would be essentially putting more brine water through the resin correct? Does the brine tank empty and brine float valve shut off before the brine suction cycle ends? I have the float set according to the service manual and added the 2" to use the float as a safety shutoff. The water level is about 10" deep from the bottom of the brine tank. Is this normal? How deep should the water in the tank be after a normal cycle?

Water sounds to be a bit higher than it should be.
The amount of water left in the brine tank at the end of the brine draw will depend on how far off the bottom of the tank the assembly is, if it is all the way down then most likely there will only be about a 1/2".
Could be that the injector on your system is plugged some and not drawing like it should.
Take the 3/8 tube off at the float assembly when it is in brine draw and it should be trying to pull your finger in if it is a light suction then there is a plug in the valve-most likely the injector.

Sorry for the confusion. The water level I mentioned was after the regen cycle was complete.

It could be putting more water than what your settings are for, but if it has been doing so for its life then I would not change it.
When it is drawing the brine how much water is left when the ball at the bottom of the assembly closes off the suction?

I have not checked that. I can check it during the next cycle.

Sounds good.
With the extra cycles has the water gotten better?
Lower on the hardness?
