New home owners needing help with a water softener/system
We are now home owners and very excited! We want to take care of our investment and need help understanding a water system/water softener. The folks here at Gardenweb.com have been so helpful during our building process that when we started talking water softeners, I knew I needed to come here again to get the straight scoop.
Our home is 2,800sf, we are a family of six and we have a jetted tub that is used about three times a week, we run our dishwasher daily and do 1-2 loads of laundry a day.
We live in Texas. Most of our neighbors have a water softener. How do we go about choosing the right softener for our home? And if we soften with salt or potassium, what do we need to do about our drinking water?
