Fleck 7000 not drawing brine

About 3 weeks ago I installed a Fleck 7000 based water softener. For the first week or so we enjoyed soft water. But over time the water has gone back to being as hard as ever. Tonight I watched as the system cycled and saw that the water does not draw from the brine tank. I disconnected the brine connection to see if there was any suction and a dribble of water ran from it, zero suction. I took the various pieces of the brine system apart looking for anything that might be blocking or cloging the system and found nothing.

The only thing that might be out of the ordinary is the 50' long 3/4" PEX drain line. It goes from the softener up to the ceiling, to the other side of the house, and down to a floor drain. When I talked with the folks at Ohio Pure Water they didn't think it would be a problem.

Any suggestions?

Well, with the help of a friend I got the system working. I seems that there was something blocking the drain line. A quick flush and now everything seems to be working.
