Water Softener Sizing (Once Again)
Would appreciate if anyone can help guide me to getting the appropriate size water softener. Below are the details.
2 persons/2.5 bathrooms/Dishwasher/Washer/Normal Showers/1 Large bath tub (no jets)
SFR from the large bath tub (13.63 gpm)
Iron <.05 mg>Magnesium 4 mg/L
Calcium Hardness as CaCO3 158 mg/L
Magnesium Hardness as CaCO 16 mg/L
Total Hardness as CaCO3 175 mg/L
TDS 396 mg/L
I have been recommended a 40,000 grain / fleck 5600L. The fact they never even mentioned the resin cuft tells me a lot about the dealer after I started researching. I've used a few online calculators that seem to suggest 1.5cuft would be enough, but I am concerned about the SFR. The fleck 5600 seems like a proven valve so I dont mind using that but the size is a major concern.
Really appreciate your opinions in advance.
Oh yeah, my floor space available at the softener hookup is 31in x 40in.
