Thanks in advance for your help. We are installing a 2.5 cuft system with a Fleck 5600SXT valve. Our water is not hard, but we are using a resin called SBG2-HP by Resintech to remove arsenic. Resintech advised to use a 10 lb/cuft salt dose with a brine concentration of 5%. The two installers in my area haven't ever heard of adjusting brine concentration. I've talked with both Fleck and Resintech and neither can give me information on how to control the brine concentration. Does anyone know how to make this happen, other than having to weigh out the salt and water before each regen cycle?

According to Resintech, this resin is lighter than a normal softener resin, and higher brine concentrations can cause this resin to float.

Don't worry about the 5%, it is a technicality. What is the hardness of your water? We usually recommend no more than 5 GPG hardness when using an anion resin.
FYI, Fleck injectors typically produce brine in a concentration range of 6-10%.

Hey, wait a minute.
