    Ahhhh.

    So I had 5CT confused and 7CT.

    So is this how it works?

    Normally while in service hard water flows down through the resin and then up though the distriuter tube as softwater.

    Thanks for all the help Akpsdvan. I'm a computer geek by trade and work at a large housing authority in the IT department by day. I wear many hats there but my day to day office has a nice big three...
  3. Ya I feel like I'm still learning and I have it...

    Ya I feel like I'm still learning and I have it down at a very very high level I think. Funny this when I started this process I didn't even know you used salt with softeners! I grew up in an...
  4. SST-60 Standard Operating Conditions

    Thanks for the follow up Akpsdvan.

    I've found the information for the standard operating conditions from Purolite for SST-60 and I'd like to match up as closely as possible. Does that make sense...

    Ok, did some final work here to try to wrap this up. Does this sound right? I really need come clarity here if you guys can help.

    Thanks Bob and Gary for following up, you're life savers!

    "You can smell limestone!." ROFL ...well who knows what I'm smelling. I drive everyone nuts with everything that I can smell. Either way...
  7. Thanks for the reply Bob999. Can you give me...

    Thanks for the reply Bob999.

    Can you give me a high level overview of your recommendation on the programming of the softener? My goal is first to be salt savy and they to worry about the total...
  8. It's Alive!

    Well it's alive and it appears to be running well. I'll post more pics if anyone is interested.

    I took out the pre-filter before the AN in the end.

    I had the AN-Filter up and running a day or...
  9. New Parts with Notes

    Here are some notes attached to two photos of the new stuff I bought.

    What do you guys think?
  10. Barbs

    I've bought some new barbs and a 3/4 PVC T per a few suggestions. Thanks guys.

    I have a new 1/2 barb x 1/2 MIP to screw in the AN filter and then into my new tubing. See above.

    I also bought...
  11. Drain Tube Sizes

    I took Gary's advice and took back the regular tube I had to look for his suggestion. I couldn't find it and the dee-pot had no clue. Figures right. So I bought two sizes of braided vinyl tube. I'll...
  12. Longed

    I won't even go into why I've been delayed yet again .... this post not withstanding lol. I'm going to re-read it all again tonight. But hey, here we go, I'm making it a point to get this done this...
  13. Yes, the only place I cut into the PVC was where...

    Yes, the only place I cut into the PVC was where you can see all the purple. I'm going to look into that now and the other stuff as well. I live in a little village and I'm sure things have been here...
  14. My House is a Mess

    I'm way backed up on DIY projects now because of the day job. I work in IT and the past two weeks have been disasters!

    Anyway, I just skimmed that last few post and things are looking lively like...

    HOLY COW ...LOL I just got home and quickly read all that I missed out on today. To be honest I'll have to re-read it all a few times to wrap my head around it all.

    Ok, back to work ...well not...
  16. Well I won't say that I don't know anything about...

    Well I won't say that I don't know anything about this stuff .... I've gotten this far haven't I? lol
    Seriously, it goes without saying that I have nowhere near the ability or expertise that the...
  17. Well that sounds like it stinks. But, even though...

    Well that sounds like it stinks. But, even though the 1" valve, electronically controlled head is better for those reasons, won't this AN filter still get the job done to a normal standard? For...
  18. So would you recomend then to come down the wall...

    So would you recomend then to come down the wall with the 3/4 PVC and then add a 3/4 PVC T and then to add a second 3/4 PVC to 1/2 coupler? That would just mean running a short little run of 1/2 tube...
  19. I was wondering about that. I was thinking of...

    I was wondering about that. I was thinking of looking for something like that. I figured I had to do something to perfect that air gap a little and that might be it. Thanks.
  20. Drain Parts with Labels

    I did this up quick in paint. From my understanding, check valves are not needed when things are working correctly but in times when things go bad they would prevent the water backing up. So in that...
  21. Drain Parts

    WOW! Awesome, thanks so much for the feedback Bob999. It's much appreciated. I'm going to have to think about that pre-filter now. At this point I'm thinking of leaving it where it is and watching it...
  22. That sounds simple enough. So if I got that...

    That sounds simple enough. So if I got that right, if your flow control button isn't sized correctly or your backwash pressure isn't high enough, then your media isn't lifted enough to clean it? As...

    I'm on what is called muni water. It's not a well and I get my water from the village. The trouble is it seems like the village is just shipping me their well water. Granted it passes basic EPA stuff...

    No thank you for looking at the setup. How does everything else look to you? Where would you put the sediment filter?
  25. "You should not have a prefilter in front of your...

    "You should not have a prefilter in front of your backwashed AN filter. You do not want to restruct/reduce water flow to the AN filter in any way. If you do, you will cause incomplete backwash and...
