Brine flowing from kitchen/bathroom faucets after regeneration

Our 18-year-old Kenmore model 625 is malfunctioning: water's not very soft and brine flows from a random indoor faucet for 10 seconds after every regeneration cycle. History: our water has seemed only half soft ever since the brine-flow issue began 3 months ago. The past 2 weeks the water has been totally hard with no brine flow after regenerations anymore. Today we cleaned the nozzle & venturi but my hb accidentally pushed the regeneration cycle button before starting the cleaning process. Oops - let it regenerate then finished cleaning the n & v (it was somewhat clogged). We then did another regeneration cycle, after which brine did flow from the kitchen faucet. Our logic now: after cleaning the partial blockage from the n & v we seem to be back to where brine flows from an indoor faucet after regeneration. QU#1: Anyone hear of brine flowing from an indoor faucet for a few seconds after regeneration cycle? QU#2: If you do 2 regenerations in quick succession, is the 2nd regeneration not really effective? (Our 1st regeneration was before cleaning the n & v, and the 2nd was after cleaning the n & v) QU#3: What else should we be checking - wild guess - the float? some valve? the bottom of the brine tank? the resin tank thingie?
