    Been over a year.

    Okay, over a year has gone by and the Pside Kick is working great. However, our old 40 year-old 3/4 HP Jacuzzi pump just doesn't have the power it once had. We want to upgrade to a water softener,...

    Getting started -- what do I test for?

    Over a year ago, I started out to soften my home's water. I got hit hard by the economy and am only now gearing up again for an assault on my water.

    Hardness and capacity

    Bought one of those quick and easy home water tests. I know it is not scientifically accurate, but will give me a ball park. I live way out in the sticks, so getting water samples in to a lab is an...

    Pside-Kick arriving today

    Will be getting the Pside Kick in today. I plan on installing it even though my new pump has not arrived yet. Hopefully, all will go well (pun not intended).

    Compare Fleck softeners

    What is the difference between the Fleck 7000 and the Fleck 5600? I have fairly hard water and need something that is around for the long haul.

    Thanks for your time.

    Any advice on selecting a quality pump

    Thanks for the advice on the set up.

    Old shallow well upgrade
