Price went up by $10, but I bought one anyway. At $503 it was significantly cheaper than any local option I found, and based on the black friday thread, this is a very good water softener. Thanks for the heads up!

I bought a softener from them the last go around. While I got what I wanted in the end it was a long and tedious process. They needed multiple reminders to follow through on promises like sending a quote and even the second shipment of my order.

I ordered the whole house system which included the water softener with 5800 valve and the separate carbon tank and sediment filter. Ill let you know how everything arrives.

edit: trying to switch to the 5600 valves now as im finding it hard to find parts for the 5800. They have tons for the 5600 available locally but have to custom order the 5800 parts.

Well, I finally got my unit and they shipped a 5800 LXT unit instead of a 5600 SXT. They're offering to swap back if I wish, as they've probably offered you.

What parts are you finding hard to find? The connector to the metal bypass?

Anyone else out there have an opinion on the two units? Am I being swindled? They claim the 5600 is being discontinued in a few years. Is this a point of concern (or even true?)

Set up my system and it is working perfectly. The 5800LXT was easy to set up. Don't know how it compares the the 5600.

Got my 5800 installed, but the programming... have no idea some of the values like the amount of resin in my tank, salt dosage, etc. I've searched around and I could find nothing on it.

Did you just use the default numbers?

If you set up the resin setting to how many cubic feet your system it (ie 48000 grain is 1.5 cubic feet) it will automatically set the other settings to the lb of salt per cubic foot. You will still need to set time and days to regeneration.

It does need power and it CANNOT be installed outdoors. You might be able to get away with it if you love in a temperate climate and build some basic weathproof housing.

How much water do you put in to start? I filled mine to an inch above the grate. But every time it does a regeneration, the water seems to be at a different level. Right now it's several inches above the salt (the salt tank is about half full), but the time before that, I couldn't even see the water because the level was below the salt. I had to dig a few inches down to find water.

I let it fill on its own.
