Mike Apap: Evian, because you have a dual tank system you will need to repeat this process in about two hours with another bag of Resin Rescue to clean both resin tanks. Oh yeah, that is FLECK 9000.
Evian Mozes: Do you have a film showing the re-hab of FLACK 9000 DUPLEX ECONOMINDER ??
james hurlbut: With very simple maintenance softened water is good for everything. In general it will only take out stuff you don't want and few things you do, as opposed to r.o. water that strips everything. Some say it adds salt to the water. It does. Two gallons of softened water has the equivalent salt of one slice of bread. I prefer beer. Jim
Chris Park: Softened water is drinkable, but has somewhat more sodium than normal. I don't recommend softening water that you will use to water your plants. More sensitive plants will die from the salinity, but St. Augustine lawns will survive just fine. Softened water is drinkable, but usually is unpleasant to drink, so most people use regular tap water to drink, or filter the softened water.
Mark Frekki: Water softeners do not add salt to your water. The brine solution strips the calcium ions from the beads, then is rinsed away. Once the calcium ions are removed, your beads are "refreshed" ready to remove more calcium from your water.
