Besides water filters, water softeners might also be an excellent option for your house if you have hard water. Softened water will prevent mineral & scale buildup on your sinks, showers, & washing machines (& less soap required too)! And softened water can also help improve your lawn & gardens too.
There are two different types of water filters, traditional salt-based & salt-free water softeners.
Salt-Free Water Softeners
A recent popular addition is salt-free softeners. One advantage with them is that the salt discharge doesn’t enter the waste water stream. Salt is hard on municipal water treatment systems for those on city water & tough on ground water for those on septic.
The #1 selling salt-free system is produced by Pelican Water Systems. Clicking the below link will take you to their water softener selection.
