I have a "Sears Kenmore Super Salt Saver 80 Plus" that is over 20 years old. I want to replace it. How do I choose a replacement that is equivalent to it? I have a 3 person household and very hard water. Is a water test required to get a proper softener? If I get a softener that is bigger than I need, to be sure it is adequate, is that a problem? For instance, Sears has a single cabinet unit that is 41,000 grains. This seems to be the largest. It is about $500 which is not to bad a price. If I only needed a 24,000 grain softener, for instance, it there a problem with buying the 41,000 grain model? Is the "grain" spec all that is really needed?
Here is a page from my manual that show my softeners capacity.....
