Yikes. This is the third time our water softener has woken me up in the middle of the night by beeping. What's wrong with it? It has salt; the salt is distributed evenly. Fortunately, there is a button I can push that quiets the alarm, but I have to get out of a warm comfy bed to do it. And then I can't go back to sleep!

It's a RainSoft. We have looked through the manual that came with it but can't find any reason why it would beep. It cleans the system every night around 2 AM. I heard it cleaning last night as I half-woke up around that time. But at 3 AM it was beeping again. It doesn't do this every night, just every three or days.

Can you tell how much salt it THINKS it has?

I have to tell mine how much salt it has in it or it beeps, regardless of actual amount.
