For those that have water softeners, do the bags of salt create any kind of weird stuff around it? Are they ok to store anywhere or will they react with certain things? If it makes any difference we use Mortons System Saver II. They come in heavy plastic bagel with a handle by they are not airtight.
Thanks

I ordered an EcoPure EPHS softener/filter system for my condo. It was so easy to install. Every part needed for the install was included. I could have used PEX or copper, but I had CPVC, so that is what I used to install the system. I had went to the local big box and they had a unit, for $850 and not nearly the capacity. I ordered online and had it within three days. Once I mapped out my piping diagram, it was easy. One line in, one line out. I am still tweaking in the right softness level, but it is noticeably softer on the skin.

Thank you for sharing, this is helpful. I think I'll follow this through.

I have Tier1 Essential Series Water Softener and it is one of the best water softener on the market. My husband and daughters were complaining about hard water. Here in local water is pretty hard. The hardest part of this was running pex piping. I used shark bite fittings. I installed it over the weekend by myself.I saw great reviews before purchased.

I used the AFWFilters Fleck 9100 SXT twin tank water softener for my well and I really like it. The water quality is very good, clean, and no smell. More importantly, it has lower operating costs and no need to schedule recharges or set a vacation mode, no interruption of soft water.

Just out of curiosity - why do you need a water softener? Is the pressure causing hard water? Can't the water pressure be lessened?

It removes minerals that cause the water to be hard. In addition, it helps in removing any unwanted tastes from your drinking water.

Ah see! Does it also helps in lowering blood pressure? Is it safe to use even if you are Diabetic?

I have a salt-based exchange – this is the most common water softener in the market, with a single tank for both the resin and the salt brine. This water softener usually lasts an average of 10-15 years.
