      I was hoping you might have some insight into an issue I have. I have a customer who has a Fleck 5800 system to deal with iron in their water. From what I know, it has improved their water. This issue is that they wish to remodel their bathroom, and don't want to have to work to keep a white or almond tube clean. Is their a color that will hide iron better than others?

      I am looking for a referral if that is possible of a plumber who can install the fleck system. A PM will work if that is the way to do it.
      I live in Lake Forest, Orange County, CA

      I saw you are an expert on the 5800LXT Fleck system. I am lost and could use your help. I'm trying to configure what "salt amount" and "hardness" to input. My water tested at 101 mg/L hardness and I have a 1.5 resin tank (54 inch high). When I select hardness, it only ranges 3-200. I know hardness goes much higher than that. Could that be in GPG? Any help will be much appreciated!

      Thank you for your help in my thread. Is there a specific online store you could recommend me to buy the fleck 5600sxt from?

      DH, we used to be your neighbor in Claremont. Great place to be, but, so is the hill ten miles out of a small Texas town where my wife and I retired to---population of the entire county is under 14,000. Nearest neighbor is over half-a-mile down the unpaved county road.

      Pentair 5800 LXT. I had a "friend" sell me the unit for my house and he made it sound so easy. I had a handyman install the unit, but he had no idea about how to program or even start the damned thing after installation. The manual is for people that actually know what they're doing and don't need step by step directions. I'm going crazy trying to find out information on the internet, nothing so far.

      The filter sumps on that unit arequestionable at best. I would recommend a USA made sump, the import sumps have been very problematic these past few years. I would know, we import nearly 500,000 per year, and the quality is not so good to say the least.

      I will have a USA made system available in a few weeks, the price should be similar to that price, but done with high end components. Call me in 2-3 weeks to discuss further. 951-801-9621

      Hi.

      I was reading up on a RO thread and you may have suggested a few good turn key residential RO systems to a fellow member. I was wondering if the brand aquapurion 5050p from us water systems is a safe unit. I don't want any leaks to occur down the road. Any suggestions? Thanks. Dan.
