    So under my bathroom sink/vanity- there are no shut-off valves! Bathroom was remodeled just 4 yrs ago. Is this to code, in Calif?

    Hi Dittohead, I am having a problem with a Kinetico Premier Series Q850 OD XP water softener. It will not regenerate. I tried to manually regenerate it and it doesn't engage when I use a screwdriver. It doesn't click anymore. It just spins and doesn't initiate a cycle. From reading your posts I gather that you have a exploded parts list that would be helpful. Thanks.

    So let’s break this down so my engineering mind can understand it. Let’s say I have the 40 gal tank which holds 10 gal of water and I use 1 gallon of water every hour for 10 hours. The pump will run once right? Maybe twice depending the draw down. Now let’s say I have my PK1A setup and use the same water. My pump will cycle 10 times.

    I’m not sure I understand how, in the following case, a CSV reduces the number of cycles. If I had a 40 gallon pressure tank (maybe 20 gallon water capacity), and I drew water say 5 times at 4 gallons each time, the pump would run once. However, with a CSV and the small PK1A which I have, if I drew water 5 times at 4 gallons each time, the pump would run 5 times.

      First a 40 gallon tank only holds 10 gallons of water. And yes it is counter intuitive, but the CSV with a small tank will cycle the same number of times per day as a system without a CSV and a much larger tank.

      The difference is the CSV doesn't let the pump cycle for long term uses but does cycle for short uses. Without a CSV it is the other way around, and the more long term uses you have the more cycles the CSV saves.

    Or is there a better pump that I should consider?

    I had an apron style soaking tub installed and when I sat in it it drops enough to separate the caulk 1/8-1/4?
