    I've read good reviews on the Fleck water softeners, but I'm totally in the dark on what size to get... specially since I would have to install it myself, etc.
    I hope to get our water tested Monday, so I'll know more then.. We have 7 ppl in our family atm.
    Is there a chart somewhere that could help me out? (I've read some pages about the grains in capacity (like https://www.aquatell.com/pages/how-to-properly-size-a-water-softener), but they totally confuse me...)

    Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    What is the hardness of your water? That is a big factor. City water or well water? If well water, how much iron?
