    Reach4- That did it -- I got the table you are talking about. It will take me a little while to figure it out. As you can see by my posts (the lack of frequency) that I am slowing down and will...
  2. Reach4, Gary, and Others - I haven't abandoned...

    Reach4, Gary, and Others - I haven't abandoned you, just got sidetracked with updating my Prescription Drug Plans for 2014 as well as beginning to search for medical insurance, since IBM is kicking...
  3. Gary, I don't think I worded my last post very...

    Gary, I don't think I worded my last post very well. From your response, which I understand, what I was trying to say is:

    if 15 lbs/cu ft is the max salt dosage for 1 cu ft, 11.25 lbs of salt...
  4. I haven't mastered the gain business yet, but I...

    I haven't mastered the gain business yet, but I think the grains are what they are for right now and will fall in place with the other calculations -- but can be used to determine salt dosage...
  5. And here I thought all I had left to do was just...

    And here I thought all I had left to do was just change the Brine Refill time -- silly me.



    OK, Reach4, you have definitely got me in over my head now. I did look through the Densities of...
  6. Reach4- Thanks for trying to help me out here. ...

    Reach4- Thanks for trying to help me out here. It is amazing that there isn't more of a layman's explanation about this subject (max salt saturation, how long to saturate, etc,). I have seen...
  7. OK, I am getting closer, I guess. Regarding...

    OK, I am getting closer, I guess.

    Regarding your comments, I guess going by the .25 gal/min Brine Fill rate x 30 minutes, I must have 7.5 gallons going into the Brine tank -- and at 3 lbs per...
  8. Gary, Thanks. I understand the math. .25...

    Gary, Thanks. I understand the math.

    .25 gal/min x 30 min = 7.5 gal
    .75 lbs salt/min x 30 min = 22.5 lbs salt
    22.5 lbs salt / 7.5 gal = 3 lbs salt/gal

    I get everything except the .75 lbs...
  9. OK, Gary -- sorry if that was confusing. I...

    OK, Gary -- sorry if that was confusing. I thought all of these dials were probably the same -- each hole/mark on the dial representing 2 minutes.

    OK, so here it is again, from the hole marked...
  10. Gary, thanks for helping with this. Yes-Yes-Yes,...

    Gary, thanks for helping with this. Yes-Yes-Yes, I found the stickers you have been asking about. It was where you said, at the joint where the brine line is connected to the control valve. But...
  11. Gary, Thanks - you are way ahead of me -- I was...

    Gary, Thanks - you are way ahead of me -- I was going to ask for help in attacking the salt concentration and efficiency business next now that we have determined that my controller may not be...
  12. Gary- The good news for me is your opening...

    Gary- The good news for me is your opening statement: "sounds like it is working like it should".

    OK, I don't want to keep filling up the brine tank either (although I thought that to be a...
  13. [QUOTE=mialynette2003;398105] mialynette- Wow,...

    mialynette- Wow, what an early response to my long post. I added a P.S. to my post (via an edit) this morning because I just remembered this morning that I was still confused about the Brine Draw...
  14. [QUOTE=Gary Slusser;397535]Not all salt water is...

    [QUOTE=Gary Slusser;397535]Not all salt water is sucked out, there is always 2.5" +/- left under the brine pick up tube in the bottom of the tank that can't be sucked out. The refill water is usually...
  15. Gary- Well something happened overnight. I...

    Gary- Well something happened overnight. I "think" the system went through regeneration because the water and salt levels are different this morning. The following changes are noted:
    - Water...
  16. OK, Gary, tonight is the night. It's after...

    OK, Gary, tonight is the night. It's after midnight now and will likely be 1 am or later by the time I finish this note. The water used dial is setting at "0", which I was hoping means that the...
  17. God Dittohead, what is going on with these...

    God Dittohead, what is going on with these systems where a simple (at least it sounds simple to me) adapter ring will not work -- but thanks for that info.

    I assumed that the people/hardness...
  18. Reach4- Yeah, you noticed that too didn't you. I...

    Reach4- Yeah, you noticed that too didn't you. I sent a note to our Utility Dept. yesterday asking if they could get me the iron content. Monica (who has given me good support in the past) got back...
  19. Reach4- Thanks for helping out. Yes, you can...

    Reach4- Thanks for helping out. Yes, you can tell I am confused about all of this. When I opened up the drain line used during the back wash cycle, that had to make a big difference, at least in...
  20. Dittohead- Thanks -- this is the kind of...

    Dittohead- Thanks -- this is the kind of information that I need -- stuff that I can not find anywhere else on the web, at least so far. I did not measure to the top of the dome -- the 42 inches are...
  21. Gary, Thanks for the response and help here with...

    Gary, Thanks for the response and help here with my system. I am not sure how to approach the possibility that the tank's opening and threads not being an industry standard. Do I order/buy a new...
  22. Dittohead- Thanks again for the advice. I...

    Dittohead- Thanks again for the advice. I understand what you are saying about equipment and go along with you on the importance of local purchasing IF you want the system installed and serviced by...
  23. Gary- Thanks again for the response. Attached, I...

    Gary- Thanks again for the response. Attached, I think, are pictures of my system setup. I am getting a real education looking at all of the You Tube videos and reading all sorts of stuff about...
  24. Gary, Thanks a lot for the response. Sorry for...

    Gary, Thanks a lot for the response. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but I had a busy weekend. Anyway, regarding the link you sent about a picture of a control valve, the link get me to...

    Dittohead - Thanks for the response. Sorry so late in getting back to you, but had a busy weekend. Anyway, in answer to your question, I think the water conditions are pretty good. Pretty new...
