    Well, thats quite a picture! :eek:

    The iron number is 7, so I think it is right on the borderline on what a regular softener can handle. The old softener, which was a Sears Genius, could handle it...

    Softeners, resin, and iron removal

    I have been shopping for a new softener, since the old sears model has given out. My well water tested with a hardness of 35 gpg, and with significant iron. Water usage average is 161 gallons a day...

    All of these are valid points. Except that the system worked just fine for many years as it was set up. No hammering at all. The only problem is that after many years the switch started to leak, but...
