    I need an advise on which water softener to buy.
    4 bathroom, 3 shower, the master shower has 3 body spray and 2 shower head.
    family has 3 adults and 3 child.
    1 inch water main line.

    my city water report is at
    http://www.ci.glendora.ca.us/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=6587

    i think i have around 12-15 hardness.

    After done some research on the web and made few calls.
    my choices are
    Flex 5600 sxt, 64000 grain- but i am afraid the flow rate will be limited too much since internal is only 3/4
    flex 5000 sxt 64000 grain ( Fleck ProFloSXT) - one person told me this is better choice than flex 7000, but not sure why, and from the spect i think 7000 is better and not many are selling this model..
    flex 7000 sxt 64000 grain - this is the one i feel i should get, but someone said this unit has many problems before, and others said all been fixed already.

    can you help me to pick the right one, and can you also recommend which site has good after sale service and can always be reached at.


    thank you

    If you have flow concerns, the fleck 7000sxt is the valve you want.

    2 cu. ft. 7000SXT for your application will be fine.
