Why wont my water softener stop running?

How do you fill water softener?

Check inside the tank. Determine your salt level by lifting the cover of the brine tank and taking a peek inside. If the salt looks dry and the tank is less than half full, refill until it’s just over half full. Also, if the salt looks wet or the water level is above the salt, it’s time to fill the tank about half full. Consider your softener’s age.
