    Pex is great and easy (assuming you can get your crimp tool into every spot you need to) but you do need to invest in the tools. My crimp tool does half and three quarter which covers everything in...

    On a lighter note, here is a picture of my install. Fleck 90 degree adapter, pex 3/4 swivel adapters, pex piping & fittings, topped off with sharkbites :cool:

    I wish everyone would set aside the contentiousness. This is a great site but I don't know why there is always this low level bitterness going on. I for one appreciate everyones input, and its even...

    Thanks for the settings! In order to advance my learning, I have some questions regarding where your numbers differ from the "generic" settings from my supplier. Can you explain how you got to...

    Let me be the first to admit that its likely that I don't know what I'm talking about :)

    Now let me generalize my question: How can I achieve optimized salt efficiency with my 1.25cuft system...

    Based on my recent learning on this subject, I think you are mistaken on how a softener works (and you are bordering on contentious besides) . Brine fill determines how much water gets added to the...

    I think the brine fill rate is just that. Its how much water goes into the brine tank. Then the brine is drawn out during the brine draw cycle. But hopefully someone that knows for sure will chime...

    As mentioned above I have a 0.5gal/1.5lb per minute brine flow rate.

    OK, thanks.

    Now, how to set up the 5600SXT for maximum salt efficiency? I have the 0.5 gal/1.5 lb brine connection. Total system capacity is 40000.

    EDIT: Let me see if I can figure this out:...

    Got the softener installed today...Question - Does a new softener need a regeneration cycle up front? Or does the resin provide softening out of the box?

    Thanks for the advice and comments (and Gary's calculator). I ordered the 40,000 grain 5600SXT unit today from OPWC :)

    Still hoping for some input here :)

    For example, I am wondering if 40K grain capacity is a bit much for my situation?

    I decided we've lived with hard water long enough, so I'm about ready to order a new softener. My situation is as listed below

    I assume this system would remove chlorine as well? GAC=? Any suggestions on where to buy a stacked system like this online?

    EDIT: GAC=Granular Activated Carbon :)

    The valve was leaking out of one of the front shafts. Due to the age of the Culligan I want to trash everything and get a new system. Any other comments (pro or con) with Ohio Pure Water? Anyone...

    The Culligan isn't in the trash yet, although I want to beat it with a baseball bat after the way that it failed ;) (Spraying water everywhere, if someone hadn't been home and heard the water it...

    As near as I can tell that thread is talking about adding chlorine, not removing it?

    We have city water with a lot of chlorine, which I would be happy to eliminate as much as possible. Any opinions on:

    1) Waterboss 950?

    2) Kenmore Elite Hybrid?

    A few months ago my Culligan Estate 2 failed catastrophically with water spraying out from the control valve. I used the peripheral plumbing already in place to bypass it. Today I noticed its still...
