Hi all,

I was hoping someone can guide me to install the RHS42 water softener. I am specifically having difficulty understanding what to use for connecting the softener to my existing water lines that seem to be cpvc.

I saw a YouTube video of where someone used 1” to water softener and the other end is 3/4” shark bite flexible metal tubes to the house water flow. However, my cpvc seem to be 1” in the house. I would need to convert 1” to 3/4” to use such product. Wouldn’t that reduce flow of water? Is that recommended?

Or, would you just glue a bunch of elbows and cpvc together?

Attaching picture of my water line that I need to tap the softener to as reference.

House water line picture attached measures 1 inch pvc pipe. I think it’s also 1 inch for the RHS42.

I think the pic above is what they call a loop inside my garage that uses CPVC. Would you recommend just using CPVC and Elbows to join them using CPVC glue? If so, what glue?

Or, SharkBite 1” to 3/4” reducer and use the SharkBite metal pieces to attach to water softener?
