Well, I finally got around to buying some salt now that it is getting a bit drier in the house. Before I filled the brine tank, I figured I'd clean it out some being that it was empty and had crud in the bottom. I disconnected the lines to the talk and cleaned it out really good, hooked it back up in what I though was the correct way. It has cycled quite a few times since, but the water in the shower just doesn't seem as 'slippery' as it usually is. I'm curious if I connected something wrong? There's 3 lines, the 3/4" or so drain which is pretty obvious, a smaller 3/8" or so line that I connceted to the internal 2" or so 'dip tube' (nipple connection that stick thru the side of the tank) for lack of a better word, and an even smaller line that goes thru the wall of the tank and connects to a nipple fitting that sticks thru the big tube and connects to another tube inside the dip tube. Did I miss anything? I have yet to trace the smaller lines back to the resin tank, I'm concerned I've got something flip flopped. Can anyone tell which lines go where from the resin tank to the brine tank? Maybe the resin tank is just getting tired, but when I had salt in it a couple months back all seemed well. Thanks all.
