Las Vegas Water Softener Selection
Hi all, need some help with selection of an on-line water softener purchase to replace a Culligan that has a leaking seal pack that I don't want to deal with.
2500 SF house with two residents, use about average of 80-100 gallons per day. There are three full bathrooms with standard shower heads, but large bathtubs that are rarely used. Would like to be able to use two showers at once along with a faucet because I often have guests (guest uses about 30 gallons per day as they usually just shower and are out gambling the day away :). Water is at about 20 grains and I believe I have 1-inch piping to the softener.
I was thinking about a 32,000 grain system with the 7000SXT valve. The "sizing" programs at various websites seem to all have conflicting information and I would appreciate any suggestion. I am looking for something sized to water efficiency because of increasing water rates and don't mind a bit of hard water creeping through prior to regeneration.
Thank you in advance,

The tank is 10"x54". The P/N 01016618 (on the tank).

So my question is, is it hard to change out the seal pack? I am an experience DIY'er, but I have never opened up a softener before.
