    How to Size Your Water Softener?

    This is the formula to properly Size Your Water Softener

    # of people in the House X # Gallons Water Consumption Per Person X Grains Per Gallon = Is Equal to the Number of Grains to be removed

    For example:

    4 People living in my House x 75 Gallons of water consumer per person (average) X The Grains in my area 10 = 3000 Grains to be removed Daily

    Then You have to look at this Chart and Find the right Softener Capacity

    What do your results mean?
    Note: Calculations are based upon your softener regenerating on an average of every seven days.

    If Your Daily Grain Requirements Are: You Need a Water Softener With:
    0 - 3,500 Grains Per Day ---- 24,000 Grain Capacity
    3,501 - 4,500 Grains Per Day ---- 32,000 Grain Capacity
    4,501 - 5,750 Grains Per Day ---- 40,000 Grain Capacity
    5,751 - 6,850 Grains Per Day ---- 48,000 Grain Capacity
    6,851 - 9,150 Grains Per Day ---- 64,000 Grain Capacity
    9,151 - 11,500 Grains Per Day ---- 80,000 Grain Capacity
    11,501 - 13,700 Grains Per Day ---- 96,000 Grain Capacity
    13,701 - 15,700 Grains Per Day ---- 110,000 Grain Capacity

    Therefore I need a 24,000 Grain Capacity Water Softener

    Note: to find the hardness of water in your area consult your city hall website. They have all the info there.
