I have a culligans water sofetner system with a brime holding tank. My other tank is where the timer is and schedules the periodic recharging of the unit. I opened up the house after not being there for three weeks and my tank system will not go off of the recharge, it just sends the water to the drain and does not go into the holding tank. I think my tank froze while I was gone. Does anyone know anything about this and if it froze did it ruin my system?

Anytime water from a softener or backwashed or regenerated fiter is running to drain, by-pass the unit. That stops water from going into and out of the equipment plus to drain.

Freezing this type of equipment usually damages it.

Thanks for responding Gary. The question is beyond my experience. I drink water and flush water. I don't know much about cleaning it.

Yes I did bypass the system, I didn't want to burn out my pump because of the constant running of the water. My guess is the valves in the tank that froze is stuck or ruined. Thanks for the response.
