Jake, my water softener won’t drain and I must bypass it due to no water pressure in the house. Can you help before I junk it? I have cleaned all the filters per YouTube. I am lost. Thank you Sir.

Thanks Jake. I found the YouTube video below and cleaned everything (Venteri, Brine Tank Float Mechanism, Diaphragms below the motor, blew out the 2 discharge hoses, cleaned the Venteri again) Tonight or tomorrow I will clean the Venteri and check out the Diaphragms to see what they look like. I will try to attach a picture to this thread to help other people. I don't mind doing that because it is what you have done for me in the past. Wish me luck and thanks again.
