Autotrol 460i Manual Regen Question

Hi, I am new to the forum, thanks for any help.

I have just bought a house which has a water softener with an Autotrol 460i controller. Our water is not nearly soft enough, so I found the manual and am going to try adjust the system.

In the manual I noticed something that doesn't make sense and I was wondering if anyone knows the answer: in the Manual Regeneration procedure, it says to do the following steps:

Backwash, Brine and slow rinse, Brine refill, Fast rinse/refill

But on the dial, there is no "Brine Refill" position. Is this an outside procedure? A hidden option on the dial? See image below

You have posted about a softener, but it is possible that you have a filter control and not a softener.
Is there a salt tank?

It refills at the same time it fast rinses. The salt dial setting determines the capacity per regenerations and the hardness and capacity settings determine how many gallons it will go in between regenerations. Need to know more for proper settings and salting. Size/model number of unit, water hardness, iron etc
