Hi everyone! I have a 7 yr old softener that I need to setup/configure. It's a 32k grain with what I think is a Clack control valve. The sticker on the side say's its a F-30 (top) and F2-U-E (bottom) but according to clackvalves.net it looks like a WS1.5 or WS2 - CI.
The city tells me that the municipal water supply runs about 25 grains hardness.
Currently, the machine fills, sits for 2 hours, and then goes through its thing. Its set to re-gen at 2AM so it fills at midnight. I've been fighting with having enought soft water for a while and figured I would try here before requesting a service call.
I have 3 young adults in the house along with my wife and I so there is quite a bit of showering, laundry, etc. In the summer I wash my car once or twice a week with soft water to prevent spots. The current settings are as follows:
Fill - 8 lbs
Up Brine - 60 minutes
Backwash - 8 minutes
rinse - 3 minutes
capacity - 19k
regen - auto.
Hardness - 30
Regen Day - 5
From reading a few posts here I believe that some of these settings are on the low side and any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
