Does anyone have a water softener?

I just moved into a new home and it has a water softener. No instruction book and I have never dealt with one before. Can anyone take a few photos of how much salt I am supposed to have in there? Any help regarding the maintnence of this will be greatly appriciated.
Thanks!

I can only put one 40# bag at a time in mine though it would hold perhaps 8 of those bags. If I put more in it compacts and doesn't work properly.

Maybe try googling the brand/model/water softeners in general, bound to be some info out there.

One other thing, mine, perhaps yours as well has a bypass valve. If it hasn't been used in a long time it's possible someone just set the bypass valve instead of using it. Mine is clearly marked so there is no mistaking if bypass is engaged.

Good luck, HTH.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

Google the brand, you can probably find instructions online for it.
