Water level in brine tank
by: RJ-H2OServices

Fred hello, The amount of water in the brine tank determines the amount of sodium dissolved to properly regenerate the softener.
30,000 grain system needs about 12/lbs of salt.
45,000 grain system needs about 16/lbs of salt.
If the float assembly is set at 10" from the bottom of the brine tank than this effectively provides 10/lbs of brine solution and so on.
There are higher efficiency settings but this is good rule of thumb.
I hope this helps ,
RJ
