I need to replace a water softner that was a pretty unique set up. Resin unit is in the crawl space and brine tank is in the closet above it. Power came from a cord up through the floor and plugged into the bedroom socket. This set up was dreamed up by previous owner. The unit is kaput (ran for 25+ years) and I have tried to live without a softner. Just killed a dishwasher in 5 years dispite by weekly cleaning with Glisten. Suggestions of what and where I can get a system. We have 4-5 people living here and the water is 16 grains. Not a clue what this could cost me.
