Should a Water Softener Be Before or After a Calcite Neutralizer?

Hi. I have an iron neutralizer already. I would like to add a water
softener. Can you recommend something and tell me the right way to install?
I can do the plumbing work no problem. Not sure about the specifics of the
water softener addition and how it interacts with the neutralizer.

Hello Christopher,

Please see the diagram below.  The softener would be installed after the
iron filter or neutralizer.  Softeners work best if the water has been
pre-filtered for iron, so this is a good way to do it.  We have excellent
prices and quality on softeners, here is more information on the softener
(below).

Also we can help you get it set up and answer any questions you may have,
they are easy to install yourself, or any plumber can do it.

Softener 7000-SXT

Enjoy scale free fixtures and appliances with soft water.  No more dry skin
or dry hair caused by excess minerals in the water!  Save money by using
less soap and laundry detergent and extend the life of clothes, water heater
and appliances with soft conditioned water with the Fleck 7000-SXT on-demand
softener.

Well designed and reliable, the Fleck 7000SXT Electronic Meter-Demand Valve
provides larger 1-1/4" internal ports for the best flow rates and least
pressure drop, making this valve perfect for use in larger homes with 1",
1-1/4", or even 1-1/2" plumbing.  No matter what size home you have, there
is less pressure drop through this softener than other residential
softeners.

The new 7000-SXT softener uses less salt by monitoring the amount of water
used in the house and regenerating only when necessary.  If there is a power
failure it can keep the correct time up to 48 hours.  Also, the system keeps
time electronically, so the drive motor only runs during regeneration,
saving energy and lasting longer than other softeners with standard timer
motors.


Here is a diagram of a typical installation. These systems are designed to
be easily installed by any plumber or person familiar with basic plumbing:

regenerates the softener based on actual water usage; saving salt and water.

Lakos Twist II Clean 1" NPT 60 Mesh

Lakos Twist II Clean 1" NPT 60 Mesh: TwistIIClean is an easy to use sediment


filter for home use. It can remove sand, sediment, and organics from the
incoming water supply. Twist-II-Clean pre-filter works better than standard
spin-down filters because the filter screen is backwashed from the inside to
outside when cleaning. Just a gentle 1/4 TWIST of the handle begins the
patented reverse flushing action, and the TWISTIICLEAN backwashes itself
from inside-out.
