I have recently installed a new clack ws-1 2.0 cu ft softener in our house. I have read many of these posts and gary's web page on softener sizing. I just want to make sure I have everything programmed properly.
We have 3 people living in the house and use 250 gal per day max gpm so far - 11
6 gpg hardness
I used 250 * 6 * 8 = 12k
What is the P setting? 20 was a WAG I had seen that recommended to others with similar settings to me but the manual doesn't really explain.
It sets the length of time for all the various cycles, leave it alone or you mess things up.

CAUTION, as of Nov 12 2013 all YouTube videos showing how to rebuild a Clack valve have an error in them that can cause damage.
