DIYers - Get the right connectors!

All in all, this unit is just fine for the average single-family home. If you're a Do-it-Yourself kind of homeowner (such as myself), make sure you analyze all your pipe sizings before you jump in. Sears usually sells a kit with the proper connectors to make your hook-up super easy (only in-store however), but my Sears didn't have any kits, so I did a little research....

What I found was the maker of the connectors - Falcon Stainless. For most installs, they make an absolutely PERFECT solution. It's a corrugated stainless steel tube with a 3/4" female nut on one end (for typical house piping) and a 1" female nut on the other (for the softener hookup). It was almost too easy. They also make a 1" x 1" connector as well if your house piping requires it.

So if you can't find that kit in your Sears, I highly recommend calling up Falcon and ordering their connectors. Really, even a total novice could easily plumb their own installation using them. Here's their web address - www.softenerconnectors.com

Hope this helps!

Water Softener

We chose to get this unit and hire a plumber to install, instead of going with a nationally branded water company. The price for this unit and an install was still much cheaper than the other options. (and we checked 4 other options). We could tell the difference in our water immediately after install. Very pleased.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Easy to install. Great for new construction or remodeling.

Bought this softner on sale for 399.00 and it has all the features of much more expensive competitors. The amount of flow thru this unit and its capacity fits my 4 bedroom 3 bath home perfectly. Unit performed as advertised. I would definitely install a whole house water filter in line before this softner to protect against particles and sand. Also run 1 inch lines in and out of thissoftner so as not to choke your water flow. Great buy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cheapness

This softener does everything that it's supposed to. It's easy to install with a minimum of tools. But it annoys me that I had to navigate thru this site like Magellan to find the "Use and Care Guide" and spend 29 sheets of my own paper to print it out the English portions. You see, Sears only provides the installation manual in the box. And if you'd like to know how to tweak your softener to gain optimal performance, you need the "Use & Care" manual. Of course, you could run back & forth reading from the computer monitor, but that would be pretty stupid. Bad show, Sears!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
