Water Softener Decision
I need some advice on purchasing a water softener. I've lurked for quite a bit before posting this, and have read a lot of information. I've narrowed it down to a Fleck 9100SXT 48,000 grain on-demand system with dual tanks, and a Kinetico Premier S250 (recommended by a local Kinetico consultant). The price differences are huge (around $1500 for the Fleck vs. $4500 for the Kinetico).
My house is 9,737 sq. ft., has a 1-1/2" main water line, and 15 GPG water hardness. We have 5 people in our household (2 adults, a six year old, a two year old, and an infant). There are 5 bathrooms but only 3 of them are regularly used.
I like the Kinetico system because it will accept a 1-1/2" water main, doesn't require electricity, and the warranty is very good. However, I don't like the price.
My main concern is water flow. Our water pressure is ridiculously good, and I'd like to keep it that way. I appreciate any and all feedback! Thank you for reading this!
