WTB Water Softener Parts in the GTA?

I have a Kenmore Ultrasoft 800 that's approaching 16 years old

I used to be able to walk in to a Sears or Sears Parts Direct (Or Amazon) and get parts for this thing anytime I had an issue.
Since the Demise of Sears, I no longer have a walk/call in option and Amazon Sellers have capitalized on this by doubling the prices on parts.

Anyone have any local sources for parts for these types of softeners?

I know of some online stores but they are taking up to a week to get the part to my house, usually when I have an issue it usually needs a timely repair and or the shipping costs more than the part.

Thanks

You could try Marcone:https://www.marcone.com/

They may carry a generic part that fits your softener. I've used Marcone for parts for a Viking gas range and Kitchenaid dryer.

Thanks. Too bad their site doesn't seem to have a very robust search.
I would have thought so too but I tried them they don't have many parts for softeners. Washers dryers they're pretty good.

I went to a store called eco water systems in Markham and and ordered parts that took a couple of days to get in for my softener that’s like 20 years old but they sell my brand there not sure about yours .

The resin must be close to the end of life ?
