So I have an pretty old EcoWater softener, Series One is what it says on the lid. There are some numbers too, but I'm at work and thought I'd get the discussion going if possible. This unit was made in '91, I've lived in the house since 2001 and no problems. The last couple of weeks it is hitting the strart of the cycle and getting stuck at some point, then goes sits at that point until I advance it or unplug it. Is there any advice for what to look for before I start taking it apart? It does seem to actuate the valves accordingly when I manually cycle it, so I assume the problem is in the gear head? Thanks gang. If I can't get this going I think we'll need to go without for a while, I honestly didn't realize how expensive a good unit is!
