Hey, it's something. I need all the opinions I can get. Because the whole house system depends on it. The hard water ruins everything dishwasher, washer, water heater. I need to figure this one out before I go get new one.
For what it's worth if I could do it over again I would install one that does not use the salt pellets. I did not research softeners as my DH installed one as a surprise for me so I had no input regarding the type. I loved the idea and the thoughtfulness, however, I killed more houseplants with that water. We ran a hard water line to the sink for the plant and pet water.
