Maybe you just take fast showers? Your parents also had 4+ people using showers/laundry, etc. You have 2.

You should mess with your settings to save salt! Yours is probably cranked up way higher than it needs to be.

I also only take showers at home 3 times a week now as I shower at work after the gym the other days.

Good call. I bet I could lower mine, but I still feel like I'm barely using anything compared to parents.

Next time I add salt I'll turn it down and test it after a week.

Added a couple bags and noticed this. This isn't true at all for ours.

Werd. I still haven't added more than the 3 bags I added initially. It is at the 2 mark so we are getting close!

I probably have mine up higher than it needs to be. I need to get more testing strips and gradually turn it to a lower setting and keep checking my water levels.
