Pitless adapter

Do you have a pitless wrench? (1" T with two 6" nipples and a 6' threaded pipe to attach to adapter). Use two car jacks on either side (end of each 6" nipple) and slowly pull everything off pitless.

Kinetico

If the local dealer will guarantee results - $700.00 is pretty good to refurbish a KINETICO I have customers with 30 year old KINETICOs that still work.

Softener

$6000.00 seems awfully expensive. You must be omitting part of the job since in my area (greater NYC) that system should only cost half as much or even less.
