Another water softner request for advice
I'm looking for some water softener guidance. I live in an area with hard water so a softener is pretty much required. In my last home, I installed a 40K grain GE (big box version) and it worked fine. I just moved and now that I know a little more about them, I think there are better options. I'm a pretty accomplished DIY'r and won't have any trouble doing the install and set up as well as maintance along the way. What I need help with is deterimining the correct size, model, and options. I've read about the Fleck and Clack valves and will probably go with one of those. Below are the details on my usage and city provided water. This came from the 2012 water report. http://www.ylwd.com/images/your-water/water-quality/quality-reports/YLW_2012_Water_Quality_Report.pdf
3 people in the house
2 bathrooms with one tub that is rarely used.
irrigation will be fed upstream from the softener
Thanks in advance
