Hi there. I just installed a new 32K water softener with a Fleck 5600
Econominder demand valve. It has the hardness and "Person" wheels. I
tested my water and found it to have 15 gpm hardness and 1 ppm iron. The
softener's instructions suggested to multiply the iron ppm x 4 and add it
to the hardness and set the dials accordingly (19 vs. 4 people in house
which gives about 950 gallons), but the Fleck manual mentions nothing
beyond setting the hardness. Am I being too generous with the salt?
Also, is there an issue having a sediment filter ahead of the w/s as long
as it's maintained?
Thanks for reading.
