Thanks to some excellent help found on this forum we are now able to once again enjoy soft water. I have come to the conclusion as many of you suggested that my softener never really was set up correctly for my new well when we switched over. I am now operating with new resin and the settings suggested by some memebers here and everything seems to be in order. My question is with an iron content of 2.5 ppm would it be advisable to add Iron Out to my brine tank periodically, and if so at what interval and how much? Is it o.k. to just sprinkle some on the salt as it is added to the brine tank as the manufacturer suggests? Thanks again for all of your help, Jim
