Whole house softener first, or filtration first? and more Q's
In my naive view, it makes sense for the water to go through the softener first, and then the whole house filtration. But the system in our basement seems to be backwards. Is it screwed up?
We purchased our house 4+ years ago. They were already (installed in 2004 according to the disclosure). We never paid attention to either of the systems. Now, we decided to pull our acts together and do the proper maintenance.
Water Softener: 5600 Econominder
Filtration: Auqasana EQ-300 after two pre-filtration (20 micros and 5 microns).
For the filtration, we seem to just need to order the EQ-300 and the filter cartridges and replace the whole system (pretty much).
For the water softener, I think we should rinse out the brine tank (looks a little gunky) and start adding salt. I think we need to figure out the settings. There is nothing we can/should do about the resin tank, correct?
Did I forget anything?
