    Kinda like a V8 engine usually having 8 cylinders and some manufacturer calling their engine a V8 but you count only 7 cylinders....

    Control valves are used based on the size of the resin tank, the resin tank is sized by the cuft volume of resin needed based on the K of capacity which is dictated by the salt dose and salt efficiency of the softener.
