Thanks for the tips. I will try that in the morning. I will take the valve back apart to check the spider gasket. I don't think it was totally dry when I put the new gasket in. When you put the plastic spider cover on the spider gasket, do you put the silicone on the top of it also?

I did pull the brinevalve out and tested it when filling the salt tank, it worked. THen I put it into brine, and I put it in a bucket of water and pull it out and could see the water go down into the valve, sucking it out.

Guess worst case, I could put my shop vac hose in there and suck the water out to see if maybe there is alot of sludge.

The water that was draining when in the brine cycle, wasn't real salty, if at all. From what I was seeing in how it works, the supply water is what creates the suction and then mixes with the brine??

Again, thanks for all of your help.
