My Valve appears to be operating but the Salt is Not Going Down.
What could cause this problem?
The salt not going down could be due to many different reasons.
1 ) Valve is not regenerating due to a problem with Timer Motor or a bad gear in the
timer assembly ( common in Autotrol Timer Assemblies ).
2 ) Salt may be Bridged ( become solid ) above water that is at the bottom of the salt tank.
3 ) If you have been using Pellet salt for many years you could have a lot of undissolvable
residue at the bottom. This residue will not dissolve and also can block water flow in and out
of the salt tank.
4 ) The Valve could be failing to draw the brine solution out and if you have a float shut off in the
brine tank, it would be prevent the salt tank from overflowing ( which it would do if the float shut off was not there ).
5 ) The brine refill control could be clogged, prevent water to refill the salt tank.
