My house has a Kinetico water softening system. The house also
has a 30 gal neutralizer tank and a 45 gal retention tank.
Well water ph is around 4.5
Presently I add 8 pounds of soda ash when I refill the neutralizer tank.
I'd like to switch over to caustic soda.
Can some one tell me about how many gallons of 25% (red cap)
solution of caustic soda I need to add when I refill my tank?
Thanks for your reply,
Sorry I can't, but I will say you should have much more retention (time)
than that 45 gallon tank can supply. If you're having trouble maintaining
the correct pH, that is a more likely place to look than in changing
chemicals. I think you may have about the same problem with caustic soda. I
assume you don't have any type of mixer to mix the solution in the water
line after your solution feeder pump has injected your manually mixed
