  • Posted in thread: Well pressure tank issue. on 08-26-2016 at 01:32 PM
    With your 40/60 switch you do need 38 psi of air in the tank. But you can only do this when the
    tank is void of water pressure.The reason your pressure drops from 50 to 40 so quick is because
    you have...

    I suppose that's possible. But if you do have a PRV and high pressure, your plumber is right,
    you need an expansion tank.

    Frodo, that is a great explanation of how the newer iron filters and sulfur filters work. And
    it's easier to understand than my off the cuff explanation. That combined with the fact that I
    could never...

    I'm going to have to go and find this original debate. When it comes to iron in the water I
    have found that in lines don't seem to completely remove the iron, just lessen it.All the iron
    I have dealt ...

    If it's from excessive pressure, the water still has to be going somewhere.

    OK, I'm really lost now.

    Not true. You match the filter type (cartridge - IN-OUT - back-flush) to what it is you are
    trying to filter.Again, a softener is an ion exchange, not a filter.I'm not going to start
    another debate on...

    In line filters are useless for the most part. If your softener isn't taking out all of the
    iron you need an iron filter. That in line filter does and can not remove iron. All filters
    should be in lin...

    I think one of them may be a brine tank overflow. The one coming from the actual head of the
    unit should be loose in that pipe. Try pulling it out to see the end of it.

  • Posted in thread: What is this sound, my softener? on 08-21-2016 at 02:14 PM
    You know it could be the unit itself leaking by one of it's valves. That's why I suggest you
    check the drain pipe.
