Which water softener system do I need?

Candi82June 24, 2014

I am a first time home owner and a female. I need a water softener due to hard water and other stuff but I have got different information from people (the price and information are dramatically different). I want something good but don't want to be taken advantage of.

Water results:
Hardness 41gpg
pH: 5.82
TDS: 1157
Iron: 15.2
I do have other information on the water if needed.

Thanks!

Two of the places I used to select the size we needed. Felt better when two different places came up with the same answer.

My previous home had well water and I used a Culligan unit. My new home has city, but it's very hard so I went with a Culligan again. I have not had any problems with it and I'm happy with my decision to stick with Culligan.
