Mechanical water softener

Hi,

There was an expert on here a while back that recommended a particular mechanical water softener (all valving mechanically controlled).

I forgot to bookmark the manuafcturer.

Anyone know which one this ws?

Thanks

Well, I don't know for sure...but try searching Fleck, Clack and Kinetco? I think the valves (Fleck and Clack) are used by different companies, and Kinetco makes systems....

At least you'll stay busy til one of the Pro's checks in...lol

Thanks,

I think all of those are good brands.

One issue I did not consider is the drain line. I would put the unit next to my water heater in the garage but there is no drain in my garage. The laundry room is 5' away on the other side of the garage wall but it's inside the house so the drain would have to be run through the wall. Once through the wall it would be visible but only for 2' or so to reach the wall behind the washer.

Is there an accepted, professional way of doing this?

Thanks

Given what you have said, yes, it is OK to drain it hat way.
