How to fill the brine tank?

Hi,

I have a question, very likely a dumb one. Here's the situation:

The brine tank is almost empty, some salt covered with water on the bottom, about 6 inches or so. So I throw in 2 50 lb bags and of course the salt is dry because there wasn't enough water to begin with. What do I do? Top it off with a couple of gallons of water until the salt is submerged or what?

Told you it was a silly question. :-)

Thanks anyway.

Ed

NO.....leave it alone....there is no need for the salt to be completely submerged in water!!

6" in an 18" diameter tank is just fine if your softener has
