1. Water Hardness is 7 grains using Hach 5B kit. The city does not provide min or max values to its customers, so I do not know how much variation to expect.

2. The 2016 water quality report is located at http://www.waterdistrict25.com/pdf/waterquality16.pdf

3. Water pressure is 60 psi using Rain Bird P-2 pressure gauge

4. Water supply to inside of the house is 1" copper (1 1/8" OD)

5. Number of people in the house 3 Adults and 3 teenagers

6. Number of bathroom are 3

Assuming 75 gallons per day per person, the high seems to be 3150 grains per day and at 50 gallons per day per person would be 2100 grains on the low side. Based on the reading forum post it looks to me that Fleck 5810 SXT system with 48,000 grains (1.5 CuFt) will have a regeneration every 15 days to 23 days. Is this correct? I will have to get the piping done for the softener by tapping into the 1" supply line and running to a corner in the garage. Should I get the Fleck with 3/4", 1" or 1 1/4" fitting? I am assuming that perhaps PEX or CPVC piping could be done for the softener.

Also, Do I need to have a whole house filter like 5 micro paper type such as DuPont Standard Whole House Water Filtration System? Or a single stage Atlas Hydra filter? Not sure the cost of the Atlas Hydra and future supplies.

As far as a RO system under the kitchen sink, I was thinking of a 5 or 6 stage system with 75 GPD . I will have to run a line to the fridge.

Any thoughts, ideas and comments will be appreciated. Thanks
