New water softener programming/setting.
Hi there, first time poster here but long time viewer.
I just built a new home and just got the water softener installed along with a inline filter. Everything is plumbed 3/4" Pex, and then has 1/2" Pex going to fixtures. I installed the following units:
Aqua-pure CWS150ME, which has fine mesh resin.
Aqua-pure AP-801 filtration system
I have 4 people in the house, two adults and a baby and toddler.
New well at 75':
Hardness = 10
Iron = 3.6
pH = 7.5
TDS 190 (145 on a different test)
Tannin = .6 (no tannin removal as of yet, I know the tannin could foul the resin)
I turned on the Clack WS-1 valve and programmed as the instructions said. I programmed the hardness at 24 and set the day override at 5 days due to the iron levels but not sure I need to do this. Factory setting are at 9 lb salt dose which is listed at 32000 grains.
I am curious if I should be setting the day override due to the iron levels, and if I should go into the deeper levels of programming of the valve to change salt dosing or anything. Anything else I should consider? I know at the 5 days override I had 900 something gallons remaining, so I am wondering if I should drop to a 6 lb salt dosage?
I have never had a softener before, so not exactly sure what I am doing but did a little research before buying and installing. I did add super iron out to the salt tank per the label, and using Morton system saver II salt.
