Clack WS1 Setting's advice

Hey everyone. The wife moved before I did (had to finish out work) and the water softener was installed before I arrived. Now that I am here I have looked over the settings and want to ensure the brilliant minds of the DIY forums agree they are the "ideal" settings.

I have not completed a water test but the annual report stated that the water in this area had hardness around 20 gpg.
I am not positive on how large the mineral tank is though. The measurements I took are approx 55" tall and 9" wide. Those may be off be an inch or so. I also took a few photos for you all.

It is only the wife and I and according to two months of water bill service we hover around 3000 gallons a month. (We have solar panels and try to be eco friendly so everything is low pressure faucets/showerheads etc.)

Here are the settings that the installer programmed into the unit.

Days between Regen-13

Energy Saver-On

Water Hardness 20GR

Softening DN Pre-Set TYPE

Fill-Set 12.0LBS

Softening Time-Set 240:00

Backwash Time-Set 8:00 Min

Draw On Time SET 60:00 Min

Backwash Time-Set 8:00 Min

Grains of Capacity-Set 33.0 x1k (I thought I had a 36k unit but maybe not)

Gallons Capacity-Set Auto

Delayed-Set Regen

Off-Set Relay 1

Off-Set Relay 2

That should be it.
Please let me know if you need any other information from me.
Thanks so much everyone,

To save on salt, set the system to 20K Grains of Capacity with 6 Lbs salt. This will be 3333 grains per lb of salt. You have it set 2750 grains per lb of salt.
