water softener?..

maidmarionJanuary 10, 2005

Does anyone know if a water softening system can be installed in an individual apartment without affecting the other apartments?

It depends on how the plumbing is connected. Some complexes have common loops, with several apartments on one line for hot and one line for cold. Others are plumbed like houses, with individual supplies coming off the main, then splitting to the hot and cold supplies.

Do you have your own water heater?

lazygardens, sorry it has taken so long to answer. I had forgotten I posted a topic on this forum. Yes, I have my own water heater.

OK - it sound slike you might have a separate system:

1) GET PERMISSION FROM THE OWNERS!

2) Call a plumber to come evaluate the possibility and give you a quote.

3) recognize that, in most states, that unit will become the property of the landlord when you leave ... it's "attached".

Angelo, I'm sorry that you are so unhappy. You really have issues, dear. This post was created before I knew I was moving into a brand new home. Now, it's a mute question. Take Care. And enjoy renting in your apartment.
