    Kinetico (twin tank) is a fine piece of equipment and will do the trick. Other systems that use Fleck or Clack valves are also good. With single tank systems, the number of people is a very important factor in determining your equipment size and settings.

    Let us know what Kinetico says.

    Your water conditions are very managable, but iron can be challenging if your system is not properly sized.
