Grains of Hardness

Water softener 'grains' refers to the number of grains of hardness the system can process before the regeneration cycle is required. Grains of hardness processed depends on how large your household is and how hard your water's hardness.

For example, a family of 3 with 20 grains of hardness: Your family of 3 will use approximately 225 gallons of water per day (3 people x 75 gallons per person). Since the water has 20 grains of hardness, you'll need to treat 4,500 grains of hardness per day (225 X 20). If you give the softener its full dose of salt, 15 lbs. per cubic foot, you can go about 7 days before regenerating (30,000/4,500).
