Water consumption increase?
I increased my salt setting from 6 to 10 lbs. my water softener is undersized so it regens every 3-4 days. I think it was about once a week with the old setting.My water bill almost doubled! Yikes! How much water does a regen cycle consume? I checked for a leaky pipes and all looks ok. I think I am going to buy the new equip as suggested by some.
Found the source of the increase in water
Found the source of the water increase...it was a leak right past the water meter. I just did not see it because of the surruonding mulch and recent rain.
Thanks for all your help, guys. It's nice to have access to a site like this--25 years ago this was unheard. Dial-up modems were the norm! LOL.
