Calulate your water hardness usage.

Enter your information and click Calculate.

The average person uses 75-100 gallons per day. 

If you are unsure of the hardness, we recommend getting a hard water test strip to help you calculate your softener size. The higher the GPG the harder the water.  

*Round up where applicable.

Note: If hardness is measured in mg/L or PPM divide it by 17.1 to convert to GPG. For iron levels above 3 ppm, it is highly recommended to pre-treat your water with an Iron filtration system to avoid any premature resin fouling.

How Does a Water Softener Work

No Flash

Normal water flow from a water softener starts from the house to the valve. It then flows around the distributor tube and through the (yellow) resin beads and gravel (brown). Water enters from the bottom of the lower basket screen and up the distributor tube and to the house.

When the resin beads gets exhausted, the control valve will recognize it and begin a regeneration sequence. During a regeneration cycle, the water flows in the opposite direction inside the tank. This opposite flow is meant to force the water to reset the resin bed to prevent any water channels and at the same time draw brine water from the brine tank.

The brine water flows through the resin bed and recharges the resin. All the excess brine and hard water minerals released from the resin goes down the drain. Finally the brine tank refills itself to the proper levels before going into service mode.

The system then repeats everytime it recognizes either reaches a certain number of gallons (meter valve) or certain number of days (timer valve).
