Hardness 136 gpg TDS 2000 PH 7.0 Iron 7.3 ppm. Well currently pumping 6 GPM Any info reguarding systems would be appreciated. He recomended the 2175s at $5700
    Thanks

    Hardness of 136 grain?

    Is there a second or third test on this water that you are talking about?

    I've had the water tested for hardness 3 different places and it comes in anywhere from 120 to 140 apparently extremely hard

    My record hardness is 136 gpg along Penn CreeK in central PA at a summer cottage. You usually won't get all the hardness but you can make the water much better and easier to live with.

    Dudly, for Canadian sales, contact www.aquatell.com and tell them Gary Slusser sent you. I suggest getting rid of the iron separately because the softener won't with all the hardness in the water.

    And don't ingest the softened water, the sodium content is going to be very high and an RO would have to be capable of dealing with a TDS of maybe 2500+, which most will not.
