I realize that this is not really a plumbing issue but could not really find a suitable topic. Hopefully someone can help me out? I noticed that my water sofener or water treatment system (I am not exactly sure what the machine is... it is a skinny, tall cylinder that is a few feet away from where I put the softener salt) is leaking. There is water around the base of the machine. Any suggestions for what might be happening? The rainsoft company wants to charge so much money just to come out to look at it. Being a fairly new homeowner, I would like to try to repair this on my own. However, as you can tell, I am not too sure what to even look for or where to start... Any suggestions?
