watts smart 'n' soft water softener
I am looking in to the WATTS SMART 'n' SOFT water softener along with a FILOX filter in front. I have hard water and above normal levels of iron and manganese. We have the usual staining and spotting and reddish and blackish staint in the toilet tanks and bowls. Additionally, the whites in the laundry are no longer white, but dirty dingy, grey, with pinkish staining along seams and also splotches. The water has been tested, thought I can't find the report, I think husband took it to his office. RainSoft and Culligan came and did their thing, never again, and I began searching for independent plumber and installer. He is the one recommending the above set up and his pricing is the best. From reading these posts, and trying to learn, I think he is right on. I am not doubting his opinion I just want a second opinion. I tend to do that when it cost $$$$ or involves surgery. So please put in your opinion or review of the WATTS SMART 'n' SOFT water softener and the FILOX. Thank you all for your time.
