    I went out and bought a valve, but looking at it now i dont think it will work. Its an Apollo 34-104-01 and its minimum temp is 120*F. This is far to hot for my softener so i need another option.

    Any opinions on my settings?

    I ran the Super iron out 1 cup per 1/2 gallon through 2 regens back to back and it fixed the sulfur smell, so i gather it must have been coming from my softener resin...

    he said that basically it wasn't needed, especially with the larger unit, and that price was a factor (which it was for me) so it was best to put the money towards the fine mesh.

    About the iron,...

    I cant say exactly if it was a "metal iron smell" but it definately wasnt "eggy" like my fathers when it goes bad. It was much fainter, barely detectable. It only lasted for a few seconds as the...
