Water softener sizing assistance
I'm in the process of building a new home. Somewhere along the line I decided to tackle my water softener needs myself rather than again use a local 'professional'. Doing my research I've discovered that it isn't all that simple as I had imagined. I like the Fleck 7000 SXT. I have had my water tested and will post the results below. Any assistance or comments will be appreciated.
I have 1.5" poly feed coming from the well into the house and converts to a 1.5" schedule 40 PVC and goes through a Rusco spin down sediment filter. Most of the home is done with 1" PEX. GPM test resulted with 38 GPM @ 60psi (before filter). I have an unusually large shower with several heads as well as a jacuzzi tub. 4 people living in the home.
