First Time Water Softener Buyer - General or Specific Advice?

I have a fairly deep understanding of most aspects of houses and the things that make them tick, but I am a complete newbie to the confusing world of water softeners.

Looking at Lowes.com, I see "grain". Does that inversely relate to the number of times I need to go fill up the thing with the stuff?

Water quality report: http://dnr.mo.gov/ccr/MO5010085.pdf

Here's our setup:
  • Access to water softener is limited, as we rent out our basement. Therefore, less frequent trips to fill it up would be nice.
  • 4 adults including basement tenants, and 3 young kids going on 4
  • We do a considerable amount of laundry
  • 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 dishwashers

Let me know if there's anything else that would be helpful.

I'd be grateful for any advice - whether it's general tips or specific recommendations.
