Here is a pic that I took from today, I usually regenerate my 16k grain water softener every 2 weeks, this time it has been 3 weeks and tomorrow i am off and I will regenerate it. even though I regenerate I get the same color. Our water is 7.1 grains per US gallon. I can't tell where in the chart it stands. About a year and half ago when I bought this water softener I use to get closer to green color but lately this light brown color, it also froze this harsh winter, I don't know if that has anything to do with this. I notice the cleaning is not as smooth as before. May be time for another softener.Post a pic.
Looks very small, how ofter do you have to regenerate it? I have a bigger one and I regenerate mine every 2 weeks.
