water softener was leaking due to a broken clip. turned off water and drained the pipes. some how managed to remove the broken clip from the inlet side. i than was able to remove the good clip from the outlet side, without breaking it. i replaced the washer on the leaking side, cleaned and resealed all the joints. finally i reattached the manifold to the water softener. no leaks so far. next time i will discarge the unit before repair.
