Sizing and cost of water softener
Hello. I need some help with a water softener purchase.
Yes I will get an independent water test done.
I had the first vendor come out today for a quote. I will post their test results when I get the written quote. They did say my disolved solids was within acceptable levels; pH balanced, no Iron, high calcium, 9 grains of hardness. Well water.
While I understand wanting to future proof the sytem. I live alone, donÃ¯Â¿Â½t get much company, am out of the house all day; and often shower at the gym. House has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths (no whirpools); dishwater (that I never use).
The quote includes the following. Moving (over 2 feet) and replacing the sediment filter. They want the Big Blue style. They say my existing filter is too small. Water Right with Clack valve, 36,000 Grains, US manufactured resin. Internal drain piping, to temporary external drain pipe. $2,000.
I will need to add a power outlet esp cost $200.
Permanent draining 1) dry well $1,000; 2) buried pipe empting away from the house $500.
Thoughts on the cost? I am concerned the 36,000 is bigger than I need,
Thanks for your review.
