    Ah, good idea. At what point do most folks decide their water is "hard" or "soft"? I see a huge difference between my softened water and water almost everywhere else when I travel, but I never thought to take my test kit with me. Another opportunity to experiment!

    Most dealers would propose a softener with 3-4 gpg or higher.

    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.
