Hello to all.. I'm new to this forum and looking for advice on retro fit on a pentair Model#7000 Conditioner head (carbon). This was purchased for city water chlorine application, which was never installed. We want to change it into a softener head. We found a dealer that might do this job but he wants all the parts first and ain't sure about all parts that are needed. After looking at the Service Manual we THINK it comes to this> ITEM NO.13
- No.12 two o-rings
- No.18 ?
- No.7 but what size Injector?
- No.23 we have 45 Elbow on-it?
- No.6 Turbine Meter but don't have No.17 Meter Cable Assy (looking for a complete parts for what is needed)
Can someone HELP! We Have High Manganese(0.236) and Copper(2.06) Iron(0.0100) PH(7.34). This dealer said that this Conditioner head can work now with (greensand) and potassium permanganate solution by injecting it continuously, and back washing periodically. This will supposedly reduce water consumption (low-producing well is what we have), but we like a salt regeneration instead, which is why we are looking into a softener and trying to figure out if a retro is worth doing, or just buying a whole new head. THANKS to ALL you Professionals!!!!!!!!!!!
