    Sulfur Dioxide gas issue

    Hi guys,

    I am having a recurring, albeit maybe quite rare, problem with Sulfur Dioxide gas. I put the well pump and pressure tank system in about a year ago, and the softener system about 8 months...

    Thanks, guys. I will investigate a little further. I am going to look at it tonight.

    There is no air at the faucets when they are turned on. Also the noise happens no matter what faucet or valve...
  4. Loud noise from tank when faucet is first turned ON, not off.

    I have a condo we are renting and have been having a problem off and on with the water heater for a few years. The unit was new in 2004. It is a gas water heater and the condo has CPVC plumbing.

    That's what I was asking, I wasn't sure what was actually in "softened" water. I know it adds some salt, but I'm not worried about that. I love salt!!!! :D

    Thanks for the replies.

    It seems as I will go with a 1.5 cu. ft. system with a Fleck 2510 SXT valve. After that, I don't know if I will get a RO system or not.

    Does anyone actually use their...
  7. The one they quoted would not, but they have that...

    The one they quoted would not, but they have that same softener with the SXT for $50.00 more. Is that something I would want? Does the 2510 sound like the right choice for me?

    Thanks.
  8. Softener System Recommendation - Please Help!

    This is our new house and we need a softener system as we are ready to have the hot water tanks and such installed. The plumbing has been on for awhile now, just to use toilets, test the fixtures and...

    A wye fitting with a 45 elbow is the optimum way to do that fitting. It is NOT the same as the sanitary tee.

    Alright, it appears as though the salt free conditioners are not the way to go.

    I have found a few softener systems online that look pretty good. I think I would go with the Fleck 7000 valve after...

    I did test for all of that stuff, Gary. It was a very in depth test I had performed by a local lab.

    I can't remember when I posted it, but I had put the entire test results in a post in the well...

    The test results also show Chlorides at 620 mg/L. Not sure if that helps.

    The water has a sodium content of 514 mg/L. It doesn't taste salty, is that a high content?



    The test I had done lists all of the minerals and contaminants. I just gave the 3 values that were...
  14. Salt Free Conditioners vs. Tradiional Softeners?

    I am looking for some feedback on treating my well water for my new house. I am just about to buy a softener and have been trying to research as much as I can about these things.

    I know I will be...

    Do I need plumber's putty under the drain flange of the pop up in the sink?

    Water test concerns. Any opinions?

    I had my water tested recently and I am looking for some opinions on a couple of contaminants that were found. I believe they said that it is pretty hard water, very salty. But besides that, 3...

    Yeah, besides the fact that it's approx. 30% cheaper at the moment where I live, it would be nice to not have a tank outside and have to keep it filled and such.

    Gas Pipeline Farm Tap in Michigan?

    I live in a rural area about 30 miles north of Detroit and I have a 13 acre parcel that has 2 high pressure gas pipelines that run across the property.

    Yes, I understand the the size difference from PEX to copper. With the 3/4" PEX I have as a supply to the valve, I can assume that it is around the same as 1/2" copper. The chart I believe is giving...

    I do have 3/4" ran to the valve, which I switched from 1/2". Didn't really make much of a difference if any. The only place I have 1/2" is after the valve from a tee which is fed by 3/4". That chart...

    I don't really know what "wires to water" means, first time doing this. I can check out the pump manual for the rated power input, they are calling for a 25A breaker for the pump though.
