The hard part is now done
I'll be ordering and installing mine also.
I'm still trying to decide on the size.
I'll start a new thread to ask some of the pros here some questions.
Where did you end up purchasing the unit from?
Earlier in this thread I think you mentioned quality water treatment .com.
They are on my small list of online dealers I may purchase from.
I liked that they included the gravel base, an upper distributor basket, and choice of bypass for no additional cost. They were also willing to ship it without the standard resin, so that I could purchase SST-60 on my own if I decided to go that route.
Best wishes for a clean, no problem, install.
You probably know this already...but, don't forget to get directions on the proper settings for the control valve in respect to your salt settings which will be dependent on the BFLC your control comes with. They may not be setup correctly when you get the unit.
