Default Softner doesn't soften....

Had a foremen call me today from a job he is running. Started the softner, backwashed it, tested the hardness. No change in hardness from the city water.

I knew what the problem was right away.......

Do the softners you buy come without the resin? Not so anywhere here I've shopped, but I have replaced it before. Havent done that much softner work though.

20 bags?!?!?



That's gotta be a big mother. Probably as big as the one Protech posed next to.
