    Default Water Softner

    Hi, I am going to be installing a water softner in my home, I have a 1" supply line that feeds the house and reduces down for each room supplied. Should I stay with 1" to feed the water softner? I know I need a bypass before the softner. What size expansion tank would be required for a home of 1800 sq ft? Do I need to the tank before or after the water softner and is a bypass reccommened before the tank?

    If you are talking about a pressure tank (bladder tank) for a well system, the bigger the tank the less the pump has to recycle and the more reserve you have if the power goes off. The bladder tank should be before the softener.

    Most softeners come with a bypass valve, the size of the connecting pipe would be determined by what the softener requires.
