    Default Settings for our new Fleck 2510sxt 48,000 gr. softener w/ 1.5 cu' SST 60 resin

    Well...after much consideration, we bought a softener system online & my husband has the install about completed. The co. we purchased the unit from said they would help w/ the settings but we can't reach them & things are starting to unravel. So, hopefully, you guys can give us an assist b4 things deteriorate any further.

    Our water is city provided, hardness=25, no iron/mag. We are av. users (175 gal per day av.) & were looking to regen. about every 7 days w/ the goal of reducing our salt consumption, which was bankrupting us w/ our old system.

    After lots of calculations, we had decided that 12# of potassium chloride per regen. would be about right with this size system...but now neither of us can remember how we came up with that. I do recall using a link that I found on this forum which was very helpful, but I never bookmarked it.

    Could any of you lend us an assist in confirming the 12# figure? Or other settings that might need changing, for that matter?

    BTW, things seem to be calming down here...hubby has become momentarily distracted by the ballgame

    Why 12lbs and not 9lbs of potassium chloride?
    If you have the SST60 that resin has more capacity with the same amount of potassium or sodium chloride than standard resin.

    The 9lbs capacity yield of 33000 because of the better resin and potassium chloride is a bit weaker than sodium chloride.

    Thanks AKpsdan...I bet we most likely didn't account for the SST resin when we did the calcs. Matter of fact, I'd put money on it...

    Which is not something I do lightly.

    BTW, is that a Jack Russell I see lounging around?

    She is part Jack Russell and they say Fox Terrier...

    She is the ruler of the house and of the cats and large dog that the wife and I have.

    We do have a full Jack Russell... between the two little ones it is a trip around here when they get to going...

    Oh my...aren't they they best ? We had one for years. They don't just fill up a house, they own the house. And the better part of the surrounding countryside, for that matter.

    Here's a link about sizing/programming.

    Don't count on getting anymore capacity out of SST-60 resin than regular resin will give you.
