DIYers - Get the right connectors!

All in all, this unit is just fine for the average single-family home. If you're a Do-it-Yourself kind of homeowner (such as myself), make sure you analyze all your pipe sizings before you jump in. Sears usually sells a kit with the proper connectors to make your hook-up super easy (only in-store however), but my Sears didn't have any kits, so I did a little research....

What I found was the maker of the connectors - Falcon Stainless. For most installs, they make an absolutely PERFECT solution. It's a corrugated stainless steel tube with a 3/4" female nut on one end (for typical house piping) and a 1" female nut on the other (for the softener hookup). It was almost too easy. They also make a 1" x 1" connector as well if your house piping requires it.

So if you can't find that kit in your Sears, I highly recommend calling up Falcon and ordering their connectors. Really, even a total novice could easily plumb their own installation using them. Here's their web address - www.softenerconnectors.com

Hope this helps!
