Replacing Water Softener Resin Beads

Having traced unusually low water pressure in the house to the water softener, this weekend we replaced the softener’s resin beads. Things learned:

I couldn’t find any local stores that sold resin beads, so I ordered both the resin beads and filter gravel online. With shipping charges, the total came to $200; a local plumber bid $350 to do the job for me. Not a huge savings, but if you feel up to the task, replacing resin beads can certainly be done yourself.
