Water Softener Sizing
Posted by Chris Rogers on January 22, 19101 at 09:42:37:
According to typical formulae for calculating the right water softener size for my family (4 people, 1 DW, 25 grains hardness, 0.8 ppm iron) I should buy a 40,000 grain unit. I just talked to somebody who said that I should go for 20,000 - not just because it is cheaper, but it should operate better in the long run. He says that more frequent backwashing should avoid channelization in the resin bed and should not lead to increased salt use. Does this make sense?
