    Treating High TDS

    I've run into another application with extreme TDS. 2100 to be exact. They currently have a 2cf softener to treat 117 hardness. They also have 6ppm iron. I'm treating the iron with cl injection/retention. The existing treated water is a surprising 5gpg the evening before regen. They don't want...

    try placing the carbon tank in bypass and see if it still occurs. are you certain you don't have a bad foot valve?

    First time homeowner, need water softener advice

    sounds like a plan. a qualified water treatment professional would be preferred over a plumber for installation, but you can likely get by asking a few questions on here regarding proper programming. A coliform test is usually required by the bank, so your probably alright, but for like $30 for...

    First time homeowner, need water softener advice

    your hardness isn't bad l. I know Gary recommended a 1 CF, and by his calculations that's correct. but for a home that size with 5 residents, I'd go with a 1.5 CF 48000 grain. the 2510 is an excellent valve, but a 5600 metered unit will work fine. your TDS is a little high. you may want to...

    Is my well water suitable for trees/garden/flowers/etc?

    your TDS is high. mainly consisting of sodium and chloride. NaCl interferes with a plants process of making chlorophyll. I would imagine different plants like different pH's.

    Extremely bad water

    I have a customer with 140+ GPG, 7 ppm Fe and 6800 tds. I'm a little apprehensive about taking the job. he doesn't want the cost of an RO. He wants Cl injection and softener. it's my belief that the softener will be in constant regeneration from the sodium added by the high tds and unable to...

    What is the max safe working pressure for RO membranes?

    This must be a whole house unit? I think the max pressure should be no more than 150. I remember seeing the curve somewhere of psi/rejection flattening on a graph. not much is gained past 140-150. ^^Bannerman explains a lot.

    Fleck 5600SXT flow indicator issue. Possibly RO system issue

    the RO storage tank should have around 6 psi (no more than 8 psi). the more air in the bladder, the less room for water. Try bypassing the softener and see if your main faucet pressure returns. If you provide more information, such as how much water you use daily and iron, hardness and tds raw...

    2005 Culligan Medallist 8" Issues City Water

    "C" units are proprietary. Only they can provide parts or service. You might try calling a local treatment expert who installs non-proprietary brands, such as Clack or Fleck. These valves are industry standard. Big box store units and online sellers are not recommended for numerous reasons...

    Water Softener Planning Questions

    big box store units are of much lesser quality and much shorter lifespan. Online dealers usually skimp on the components. Best to purchase a fleck or clack from a reputable local dealer. Although, clack can't get circuit board for 2 months, so they're out of the question unless a dealer has some...

    you want a peristaltic pump imo. stay away from baffle tanks. they don't provide enough contact time. been there. done that. GAC will work fine. no catalytic needed.

    avoid oxidizing iron in the well. no point in pushing rust through your pump and well line, or having it accumulate in your well.
