Breaking a Salt Bridge
Sometimes,
a hard
crest
or salt bridge
fl_rms in
the salt storage
area.
It is usually
caused
by high
humidity
or the wrong
kind of salt. When
the
salt bridges,
an empty
space torms
between
tile
water and
salt. Then
salt will not dissolve
in the
water to make
brine.
If tile brine
tank is full of salt, it is hard
to tell
if wm have a salt bridge.
Salt is loose
on top,
but the bridge
is under
it. The following
is the
best way to check
tot a salt bridge.
Salt should
be loose all the way to the bottom
of tile tank. Take a broom
handle
or like tool,
and
carefully
push
it down into the salt,
working
it up and
down.
If tile tool strikes
a hard
object
(be S/lYe it's not tile bottom
or
sides of the tank),
it's most
likely a salt bridge.
Careflfllv
break
the bridge
with the tool.
Do notpound
on tile walls of tile tank.
If the wrong
kind
of salt made
the bridge,
take
it out. Then
fill the tank with nugget
or pellet
salt only: In humid
areas,
it is best to fill with
less salt, more
often
to prevent
a salt bridge
fl'om limning.

Cleaning the Nozzle and Venturi Assembly
A clean nozzle and venturi is needed for the
water softening system to work properly. This
small trait makes
tile suction

recharge.
If it becomes
plugged
with
sand,
dirt, etc., tile water
softening
system
will not work and you will get hard
water.

NOTE: Some
models
have a small flow plug
located
