water softener

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

The house we are buying has a water softener system....I am a bit concerned about the extra sodium that it will have....I read a few articles and they say it's not that big of a deal for most people....
I'm wondering what others think about it???
I'd appreciate and feed back any one has to share....

Have a healthy day

    Hi!, We looked into all types of softeners, I was warried about salt too, so we looked into no-salt softeners. We found a better technology which need no salt or maintenance. We ended up getting the Scalewatcher 3 Star from , we paid $499 including a ten year warranty. We are still using it after almost a year and we have no scale anywhere, our hair feels softer after the shower, very nice product. Hope this help you!

    Sorry Kitt looks like you will have to google this no one seems to know

    I also think it is just in the hot water but not sure.

    Kitt, I'm sorry that I have no advice to offer as we don't have a water softener. We always drink bottled water just to be sure.

    I've never even heard of one, much less know anything about one! I hope you find the answers.

    At my Aunt's house, she told me that the softening was only in the hot water. So when cooking or drinking, they would use only cold. Don't know if that's true of all setups, but that way would solve both issues.

    We had one year's ago when we had well water --very much needed
    --but if you are on city water not sure you need it..--well water --yes

    you just do not have it go through your cooking and drinking water..

    -we had filtered water for that.

    My parents have a water softener, and I was always concerned with the sodium in the water because my Mom had high blood pressure. But I don't know that the soft water contributed to it - it was just a concern. I have nothing to refute or support.

    You could always buy water for drinking if you have a concern. I have a water dispenser that holds 5 gallon jugs.

    We have a water softner and it does not bother me at all. Although i just use mine for drinking and showering lol. I love it is so much better than hard water.
