Kinetico Salt tank and levels

I have a few questions regarding my Kinetico water softener:

Today I noticed the salt tank leaking water out the overflow tube and when I looked inside I saw all water. There was about 10" of salt, but the water level had risen to about halfway up the tank. I've never had this happen before.
I emptied it all out and refilled with salt, but I'm not too optimistic this problem will go away.
Was I just too low on salt?
I've ran out of salt before, but the water level never passed 8 inches deep...
Should I be concerned?

The float probably got stuck open. Maybe some dirt or something plugged the valve at the bottom. Carefully pull it out and move the rod up and down, water should start and stop. Be careful not to adjust the float cone level by accident as you pull it out.
