Hi all,
I installed a water softener system about 5 years ago, and its been working well until we lost power for a week. I realized later that since then the settings have been off and the water has been 'hard'.
Can you help me figure out the settings to program the 5810?

Specs:

Model: 5810
13x54 softener
1" x 2.5cf Water Softener with 10% resin
BLFC: .025
DLFC: '3.5' printed but '4.0' written in marker
Injector: '2' printed but '3' written in marker
Piston: Standard
Sodium Chloride pellets

Type: Well
Water hardness: 22GPG no iron or chlorine in the water
2 Adults, 3 small kids, 3 bathrooms and lots of laundry.

This uses the automatic reserve that learns from experience:

System info (not programmed)
salt lb/cuft : 7.5 ; A choice ( efficiency vs capacity)
BLFC : 0.25 ; Brine Refill rate GPM
cubic ft resin : 2.5 ; Same as (nominal grains/32,000)
Raw hardness : 22 ; including iron etc
Estimated gal/day ; 300 ; 60 gal per person prediction (auto-tunes)
Est days/regen ; 7.68 ; presuming days each use estimated

Fleck 5810SXT Settings:
DF = Gal ; Units
VT = 5810 ; Valve type
RF = dF2b ; Downflow, Double Backwash
CT = Fd ; Meter Delayed regen trigger
C = 57.6 ; capacity in 1000 grains
H = 25 ; Hardness grains after comp factor
RS = cr ; Cr = base reserve on recent experience
DO = 30 ; Day Override (typ 30 if no iron/Mn)
RT = 2:00 ; Regen time (default 2 AM)
B1 = 5 ; Backwash 1 (minutes) [3...10]
Bd = 60 ; Brine draw minutes
B2 = 4 ; Backwash 2 (minutes)[3...10]
RR = 6 ; Rapid Rinse minutes
BF = 25 ; Brine fill minutes
FM = t1.2 (usual) ; t1.2 is default flow meter
RE = OFF ; Relay
VR = OFF ; ?

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
