WELL, I live over 2 1/2 hours away now and when inlet valve goes down my Mom has to do dishes by hand till I can head down on the weekend and fix it.
Shoudl I keep patching up this well built TANK, with custom rigged parts or should we bite the bullet and buy a LESS QUALITY 2005 unit?? Will any of the newer unit hold up to our hard water as well as this one?
Another guy trying to keep Mom happy! ;)

Here's another tip: if you install a whole-house sediment filter, you'll spare your water inlet valve all the sediment hit and make it last longer.
Word: Everyone on a well should have this.

We have a Whole house filter in place, it is not sediment but LIME and IRON scale that clogs it! A dip in CLR some times sures it but by then the valave surfaces are to mared by the scale, abd it weeps!:X

but the lime and scale killed it FAST
Don't see how that's possible-- most softeners today use a brine tank-- you just add more salt as needed!
We used to live in Minnesota, had a well, very hard water, much harder than anything here because of the limestone geology over there. Culligan came over and sized a whole-house water softener system. It had a large (55-gallon sized), brine tank and associated equipment. Never had a problem.
