New house I bought in Oct. doesn't have a water softener.
Some people sear by them. Others say not necessary.
Thoughts / opinions?
I read somewhere that the amount of excess sodium you consume in a year from a water softener realy adds up? Extra .lbs!
Then I read that to prevent minerals from depositing in your water lines a water softener is necessary. Apprently that excess deposit can corrodie water lines?
If this is true, how long does it take? Would I be ok waiting a couple yrs? Or by then would it be too late?
Someone also said you can hook up the water softener to whichever water ines you want. So if I didnt want softened water going to my drinking water I dont have to hook it up there?
And last.... Has anyone installed and hooked up one in their house on their own? Simple DIY?
Thanks in advance
