Great, thank you.
Thanks. Do they make converters for PE so it would fit over the 1/2" stem on the Softener?
Quick question since I'll be running the waste line on Sunday. The spec sheet for the Clack says a 1/2" connects to the waste fitting. With the distance and vertical lengths I'm running would I need...
Thanks for all the help guys. I think I've narrowed it down to the Clack. I'll post when I order it.
The cheapest I could find are $622 and that is anly a 24,000 grain. Was it a 33,000 grain you saw for under $500?
1.5 cuft would be large enough and be able to handle the hardness level of 21? Also, would I have to buy a Clack separate and install that too? I have no idea what that is but I will google it.
Can anyone recommend a specific model to me? The numbers in the previous post are over my head.
2 and a half baths, but only me and the wife here. One of the full bathrooms never gets used. We both work so we are gone 10+ hours a day during the week.
Ok, they told her the water hardness is 21.
My wife is bringing a water sample to Sears tonight for testing. I'll post the results this evening.
I'm not familiar with the term "control valve". Sorry for the rookie questions but I haven't seen that list on the units I've looked at.
Thanks, I forgot to mention that the water in my town is horrible. Very hard and lots of lime. I will be bringing a sample in to Sears, they will test it for free and I'll post the results.
Thanks Gary and everyone else that helped. I thought I would add to this thread rather than starting a new one since it explains most of the issues.
I now need a recomendation for a Softener. There...
In my case I can't dump it outside due to freezing.
Thank you Skip, I was getting confused there.
Yeah, that would do it. Going up is the only way out.
I'd still like to know if the waste/salt water that normally drains out of a softener is pressurized or not.
Please read the initial post in this thread so I don't have to re-type it again.
No, and the 1st floor kitchen and bathroom are across the hall. There's really no access at all to those. It has to get upstairs to the laundry room drain.
2 story townhouse, sits on a slab. The water main comes up through the slab and then goes right back down again. I would need to cut into that for the water softener. There is no drain there so...
I think I'm not understanding this correctly or I'm confused by the terminology. The house is on a slab and the water main comes up through the slab (no basement), there's a shut-off...
I priced some pex and it would be more expensive, but depending on how flexible 3/4 is it might mean the difference between not having to cut drywall in the ceiling.
I don't have a specific softener picked out yet. The ceilings are 9' plus the space betwwen the joists to get up through the floor into the laundry room. I was kind of guessing that the height of the...
Oh my gosh, I'm embassed I didn't even think about the water main pressure being strong enough to push the water up 9'. What's odd is that no one I talk to (Culligan, Home Depot) even mentioned this....
Here is the specific pump I was looking at: http://www.libertypumps.com/Products/Category/SubCategory/Product/?p=20&s=8&c=15
I called the company and they said it would handle the...
Total vertical would be 12' and the entire run would 30'-35'.
