Re: Alice the New Softener Arrived!
The new Softener system arrived late this afternoon. I just finished unpacking the boxes & making sure I have everything that was ordered. The new system looks great! I have a few questions for you as I plan to assemble it tomorrow & get it ready for install later this week. They shipped me a bag of the gravel, not sure how much it weights but it fills up a 3 gallon bucket 1/2 way. Should I use all that gravel in the resin tank then add the 1.5cuft of resin with the funnel? Also do you recommend rinsing the gravel before I pour it in?
Lastly, I was thinking it would be really cool if I can do the programming on the Fleck 5600SXT on the work-bench so that when the plummer installs it we are ready to roll. I have the new UPS battery back-up on hand that Lurker suggested so it would be really easy to set-up the programming on the valve then it would be ready to install later this week. They say the info is back-up on a SSD so that it remains for many years. I did read thru the Fleck manual & it did not say that the valve needed to be plummed in & have water thru it to turn-it-on & do the programming changes?
I know you need this info for programming:
BLFC = .50 GPM
DLFC = 2.4 GPM
Injector = 01
Also I found the Pellet salt at Lowes for a great price & it says on the bag 99.8% pure salt. The 40lb. bag is only $4.99. I will not buy the rock salt again. Thank you again for all the help on this project. Grandma can not wait for soft water again.
