How to Properly Size a Water Softener System for Your Home

If total hardness is expressed in mg/L or PPM, divide by 17.1 to convert to GPG. Use 60 gallons per person for normal usage per person, or 75 gallons per person for high usage. Days to regeneration ranges from 3 days to allow for reserve capacity between regenerations, or 7 days to limit regeneration to once a week.

Water Softening Systems Water Consumption for Regeneration

The volume of water used during the regeneration process of a water softener will vary depending on:
  • Amount and type of resin
  • Cycle time setting
  • Flow controllers
  • Salt settings
  • Tank diameter

Generally, water usage for regeneration is based on the cubic feet of resin per water softener from a low of 30 gallons of water per cubic foot, up to a normal of 75 gallons of water per cubic foot, to a maximum of 100 gallons of water per cubic foot.
