      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Water Softeners

Recommended Posts

Our water softener is 12 years old and has quit qorking. I have thrown it on bypass while I search for a replacement system. I will be installing this myself.

Does anybody have any brands that they recommend or brands to stay away from? I currently have a Kenmore.

Is there any installation nuances that I should be aware of? I have done a number of plumbing related things including installing water heaters and sweating pipes etc.

I recently installed a Water Boss in my home. So far I am very pleased with the unit. It wasn't too difficult to install and set up.

The price was very competetive as well.

I have a Kenmore that is 10 yrs old and still works great. I also know a few people who have installed the Water Boss softeners, and based on how they've worked for them I'll be replacing mine with a Water Boss when it goes out.

I have never had one before, but put a Water Boss in new construction. I didn't install it, but so far (only couple months...) it just does its thing with no probs or no fuss on my part. Our contractor recommended it highly. I picked it up on a great sale at Menards - I got the 900, FWIW.

edit - oh yeah, I forgot, we put the same model in my brothers house a couple years ago - two non plumber types, and it went real smoothly. We put the crossover valves in his, but I see they did not do that in mine. Pretty easy though.

I have had both Water Boss and Kenmore. I liked the Water Boss much better. Our water had iron in it and the Water Boss did a better job taking it out and lasted longer.

Installed a water boss from Menards, 6 months ago. Really like it so far, no problems. Easy to install, I did not use their plastic fitting to the softner, I used copper with a union, guess I do not really trust plastic fittings. Just my opinion.
