    This is what i did using the figures from; http://www.caitechnologies.com/image...pecs/SST60.pdf

    Capacity = 30,000
    Hardness = 40
    Reserve = 120 gallons
    Days Override = 8
    Backwash = 5 minutes
    BrineDraw = 30 minutes
    Rapid Rinse = 8 minutes
    Brine Fill = 4 minutes (there is a sticker on the WS that says .5 gallon /1.5lbs)

    So, 30,000 grains / 6lbs should be 5,000 salt efficiency ?

    Can this bad boy softener do it well?

    I figure that I might get away with these reduced times because I have great pressure (I know the unit will restrict) and am dosing at such a low level. I figure worst case it doesn't work and I try a lower salt efficiency (re-figure everything again) and send Gary hate mail for being correct. Or I can bump up the BF setting to get me 7.5lbs and a 4,000 efficiency.

    BTW; a 47 minute regen is kewl
