i know this is all relative to the hardness of the water in the area,
but i will try to provide some statistics that will help solve this
i have a kenmore water softener that is about 3 years old, in my home
with wife and daughter, and it runs all the water with the exception
of 2 outside faucets. our water is about a 9 in hardness and it is
gahanna city water, or maybe its columbus ohio water. anyway, how
long can i expect this softener to perform? i think it was the model
that is rated between 35000 and 39000, or somewhere in that range.
the reason that i ask, is that lately it seems like our water is not
as soft as when the unit was installed. is there any good advice to
get the water softer again? i have turned up the hard water setting
so taht it recharges more frequently.
thanks in advance,
