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.
