Resin in water heater

I have a fleck 5600 softener. When flushing out my water heater I noticed I had resin from the softener come out. I would say I had about a gallon paint can of resin that came out. I have not noticed any resin or had problems with any faucets in the house, mabey I caught it in time?? We have high water pressure here (mabye 100 plus) and I am sure that took a seal out or something. I would like to fix this myself if possible. But can't find any instructions for my unit on what to do. I will definately be adding a pressure regulator. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Thank you!!

How old is the unit? Make sure it is not hooked up backwards. If it's not backwards, the only other way is through the distributor tube. With the high pressure, it may have damaged it. Pull the head and the tube.
