Water Softener Guidance
I have a 12 year old GE PNSF35B that was placed in the house when we built it. It has done a great job up until now, but has become 'buggy' over the last few years, and tonight, I found a leak in the resin tank (leaking into the brine tank, thankfully).
In my research and reading, I have settled on the Fleck 7000 SXT but need guidance sizing.
We are on city water with approximately 9.6 GPG hardness. There are three of us at home currently. The home has 3.5 bathrooms.
I am trying to decide on the capacity of the resin (thinking around 2 cu ft), and the grain capacity (based on high-level, quick research, thinking around 48k-64k).
We are on brink of being empty-nesters, so dropping back to 2 in the house is on the near horizon.
Any guidance? I am, of course, in a little bit of a hurry. We have a bypass valve, but don't want to run with hard water very long. Appreciate any insights.
