    I have not bothered to find the exact answer why, but if I let a glass of reverse osmosis water sit in a glass, the water will form the same little bubbles as in your picture after a few hours. ...

    I got it, thanks! I set the unit down to 6lbs/cuft and my wife said something to me about it, not so much a complaint, but she noticed the water was a little different. I noticed a very mild...

    I don't see any point in renting something, I am sure there are some basic tests that will tell you whether silica is the issue or not. Have you talked to your neighbors? At any rate, in my house I...

    I am not trying to make any assumptions, I am trying to sum up what I think I am being told by everyone. Please let me know your thoughts. I have no proof of anything right now other than what I...

    Thank you Gary,
    I think there are two different concepts here:

    1) The capacity of the resin
    2) The "leakage" of the resin based on salt dosage

    By capacity calculations, everything you state...

    Thanks Dittohead,
    The unit came set at 8lbs per cuft, and I have been pleased with the water quality, so more than likely I'll set it back at 8lbs. It's going to regenerate once per week reagrdless...
  7. Chlorine is your enemy in a biological system,...

    Chlorine is your enemy in a biological system, not the sodium, potassium, calcium or magnesium. However, a gram of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) will neutralize 1ppm chlorine in 100 gallons of water. ...
  8. Increased hardness pass-through with lower salt settings?

    I was adjusting my softener today and setting it down to 4.5lbs salt per cubic foot to yield 17,000 grains capcity (1cuft resin). I was online verifying that 4.5lbs is indeed 17,000 grains as most...

    If it was Lancaster Pumps, the questionaire is lengthy and they ask all sorts of questions, including whether you want recommendations or not. Whether or not Lancaster Pumps feels the system would...

    Your test likely went to Lancaster Pumps. They have an inside lab for this - they tested my water as well for free, I dropped it off myself and spoke to them in person. Mine came back as zero iron,...

    I think you may be overthinking this. I have a house built in 1890 and in 1989 there was a major remodel, including running new copper pipes throughout the house. Last month I found a wet spot on...

    Got it! Thanks everyone - I think I am getting it, which is why I asked. It's a 2 story house, but the area where the black pipe in the basement would enter into the 2nd floor and roof is behind a...

    This is not 100% clear to me. Are you saying the black pipe looks like it is a drain from above or are you saying that because it is venting fixtures above, I cannot connect to it below those...

    Ok, I was guessing there was not a way for me to get the washer to drain up into the existing plumbing near the ceiling as there is not enough room for a proper length standpipe.

    Let's assume our...

    Ok, again, sorry for not just waiting until I had some shots. Attached are 3 shots of the basement where the washer is going. I am uncertain of the best way to drain the washer given the situation,...
