Culligan Mark 89 help!

I am in the process of changing my resin media in my Culligan Mark 89. I figured out my original question but now I don't know how to delete my question. So, since I have to ask a question, any tips or suggestions for my re-bedding process?

Bedding a Culligan of that time frame can be a royal pain but it can be done.

There are two hooks for the valve, one goes all the way to the bottom and the other just a few inches, the few inches needs to be out of its hole.
Then a funnel, one with an end that will now fit in the hole and one that has a large fill part or bowl. One might have to tape two together.
Hose with water lightly running. put some resin in the funnel bowl and add some water , one will have to work the funnel end up so that the air can get out, GO SLOW, TAKE YOUR TIME or a very large mess will take place.

It would be good to have about 6-10 feet of 1/2" Polyethylene tubing to siphon water out of the tank as it will start to make a mess if it is at the top of the tank while your putting in the resin.

Have a tape handy and one needs to check from time to time the space between the top of the tank and the resin, 17-15" is the goal.
That should do it.

Should there be any gravel at the base of tank before resin is added? I noticed while removing the old resin that there was no gravel in the tank. I pulled approximately 1 cu. ft of resin out of tank. If I do need gravel, how much?

Culligan Mark89 resin tank

Hi Greg, Do the control valve fittings through the top of the Mark 89 resin tank, just press into the pipes? it appears that they need to be removed, along with the nuts, in order to take off the top.
