How Do I Know What Size Water Softener I Need?
Finding out the right water softener for your home is not as complicated as it may seem. It really all depends on the number of people living in your home and the hardness of your water supply. To determine the correct water softener size for your residence, you need to multiply the number of people that live in your home by the amount of water they use each day – for reference, the average person uses about 80 gallons per day. For example, if you have a family of 4 (including yourself), your household will use roughly 320 gallons of water per day.
Once you have this number, you’ll need to multiply it the grains of hardness in your water. The amount of hardness in your water – measured in grains per gallon (gpg) – can be found using a home water test kit. Multiply your water’s grains per gallon by the gallons of water used in your household per day to find out the amount of hard water grains that need to be removed each day. For reference, a 33,000-grain unit is common among households with four people.
