    Default Autotrol 440i what should I do now?

    This softener has been in my house since I moved here about 8 years ago but it hasn't done anything. I've tried reading through the manual but there are terms in there that I don't understand and it just leaves me confused.

    The softener seems to be on because I always hear a ticking noise but nothing happens. I attached a picture of what the tank looks like, I haven't touched it at all. As you can see, there is a lot of salt in a little bit of water at the bottom the tank, should I empty it, clean it and put in new salt and water?

    Can someone suggest (in the simplest form) what I should do right now to get it working?

    It would be a good idea to clean the salt tank and start fresh, 5 gallons of water and a bag of salt.
    The ticking is from the timer keeping time, the one wheel with 7 pins is the one that tells it to cycle or not cycle, pin in means cleaning and pin out skips that night for cleaning.
    Often people set the day of the week to the day number on the wheel, sunday is 1 etc.....
    Was there a manual with the system?
