A: Correct. Our softeners are designed to reduce hardness minerals (Ca and Mg), along with Clear Water Iron. All specifications can be found in the Owner's Manual - https://ecowater.zendesk.com/hc/article_attachments/4420696656151/7386473Eng_F.pdf
A: Rheem water softeners use upflow brining to maximize efficiency.
A: The drain line for brine tank is gravity. You will have to check tank drain to see if it is higher.
A: Not gravity fed, you can run the drain up into the washer drain or laundry sink. It uses the water pressure to suck the salt brine out (using venturi action like a carburetor does), so it's a low-to-moderate pressure stream that should be able to easily get to your drain.
A: There are two drains attached to the back of the softener. The upper valve drain (connected to the head of the unit) can travel up to 8ft from the floor and 30 ft horizontally. The lower overflow drain (connected to the salt tank) is a gravity drain and must run downwards to a drain.
A: We recommend using Rheem Water Softener Cleaner once every 4 months. Please see the following guide in our Help Center for instructions: https://rheemwatertreatment.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500006334101-Rheem-Water-Softener-Cleanser
