    I'm not a pro, but a friend in the business told me he'd never use the flexible hose type of supply lines, either braided or not, because he's seen them fail too often.

    He recommended the old...

    review?

    Funny company.

    I ordered direct from his website, soon received the order confirmation email, plus a separate "Shipped!" email from UPS. The UPS email said "expected delivery 10/11", and I was...

    Late response, I know, but at least the answer will be on the record for future searches.

    I'm sorry to say I can't recommend the Kohler strainer - I've sworn by Kohler for years, but I think they...

    You know, I was looking into 'air treatment' a number of years ago, and I always came up with difficult or near-impossible methods. I didn't even look into it last year, before I ordered this...

    I have to say, the plumber that installed the system suggested a flow-switch. I've learned to question all his work!

    Yes, maintenance is one of my concerns, I need fewer chores. Now that I'm old...

    Well, I spoke with a tech at the company, who really didn't help me with my main questions at all.

    He was much more interested in telling me that they don't intend the HN55 as a 'residential'...

    I'm not sure if I made it clear how I'd like to install the HN55.

    This is the illustration from the Chemilizer install manual:

    It's good to know at what point to test the free chlorine. I made the mistake of testing after the carbon filter.

    I have tested immediately after the contact tank, and it's 'off the scale'; my...

    Success story...

    I was able to get the Spacer Stack installed with no problem, inspected the piston and found no scratches, and checked for any remaining carbon bits. I have no water running out...

    Gary, thanks for the clear and very detailed explanation.

    I understand. And I'm learning humility... 8-) I'm glad you got through to me before I went and picked up a new pump.

    So in this...

    ok, that's nice to hear.

    I really didn't want to make time to learn about changing the resin right now.

    Thanks.

    Gary, I should give you the whole picture about my system. (Sorry, it's kind of long...)

    Our well was probably drilled in the early 80s. The driller's long gone. The old pump was a Red Jacket that...

    Well, tell me if my math is wrong, but from your figures (using 60000ppm for 6% Clorox):

    .06/35gal = .0017143...
    1:128 = .00001339...
    or 13.4 ppm

    So I figure the concentration/solution that...

    Thanks Ditttohead. That one looks promising.

    How would I know what the ratio should be in my system? I can test the water coming out of the contact tank, which will tell me what ppm chlorine I...

    Thanks Ditttohead, I'll look inside the tube when I take it apart again when the part comes in. So far, I haven't seen any more carbon bits coming out of the rinse line. I cleaned it pretty well...

    Thanks again for the pointers on opening up the head, you all.

    I was able to clean it out and the damage was obvious - one of the clear seal's lip edges were ripped. I've had to order a new...

    I've looked into the CSV, and the cost will be more than replacing either the pump or the tank.

    The cost of the CSV was quoted at $236, but then I would need to change my chlorinator pump which...

    Thanks for the good description of the procedure, Gary. I'll try without the wrench, and see how far I get. I did try prying like that before, but nothing seemed to budge, so I figured I was missing...

    Well, if that isn't a lot to chew on.

    What would a residential csv cost me, roughly?

    I've found that a new tank would cost me @ $ 450 not installed, as would a new pump, but the pump should be...

    Thanks for your help mialynette and Gary.

    My original question may be moot at this point, because the AquaPure's valve seems to have shut itself today, and it is no longer 'running'. We'll see...

    Thanks much for your inputs. I'm interested in the CSV, but am cautious because I've seen disagreement about them.

    Gary, I can't tell from your comments. What size tank does your figuring suggest?...

    Well, I apologize for not seeing your replies guys, thanks. I guess forum notification isn't working for me.

    I'm still struggling with the problem, and I hope I haven't damaged my pump by now.

    3M AquaPure rinse line 'runs'

    I have a 3M Cuno Aquapure CBF100 carbon backwash filter that has started to continually run a small amount of water from the rinse line.

    The instruction book says that this indicates a damaged...
