Should I go with a 13 year old Kinetico Model 60 for $1,000 or a New Fleck 5600 for $500?
I have just purchased a home and the seller was planning on taking his Kinetico (Model 60) with him. For $1,000 he is willing to leave it with the house when he moves in a couple weeks. The Kinetico is 13 years old. My other option is to simply purchase a brand-new Fleck 5600 Econominder with 40000 grain capacity for just over $500 (plus dinner for a plumber friend to install it for me).
We have a household with 4 people. The house we purchased has city water with a hardness of 15.7 gpg.
