This may not the correct thread to ask these,questions, but I new to this forum post these questions. Thanks in advance for helping out.
I bought a*Kinetic model 60 off craigslist a couple years ago and installed it a couple weeks ago.
I first installed a sediment filter. The water seemingly improved taste with the filter.
After installing the water softener, the water seemed to have an slight*smell and did not seem softened.
In fact, the*incoming water TDS (pre-filter) was initially measured at 450ppm. After the water softener install, the TDS measured 650ppm.
I live in southern*California and I believe the water softener was setup for this area.
I have not gotten a*lab tested water sample performed yet. I think Watts will perform the test for me since I bought a their RO system.
However, it seems I have a more basic setup problem at this time. I have the #2 disc and I'm not sure what the float is set to.
When I initially regened the system (without salt), I thought the water should have filled up the brine tank higher. It only came up a*couple inches over the grill. From what I've read, this is normal.
I have*been looking for a tech setup*document*that*can tell me the proper setting*for the hardness of water.
Also, how can I tell if the media is spent?* Where can I get parts?
Thanks for your help!
