Water Softener Question
I need about 16,000 grains per week of softening (2 people, 15 GPG, negligible iron). I want to run the softener at minimal salt dose, so I looked at several 1 and 1.25 cu. ft. softeners and they all use 9 inch tanks, which limits the flow rate to 8-10 gpm. Since we have times where we might need a higher flow rate than that, I am considering a 1.5 cu. ft system (Aqua-pure) which gets me to 12 gpm (they say 14), but that extends the normal regeneration period out to 10 days, maybe more. Is that acceptable?
