If you are looking for a water softener, the first thing you need to know is the environment you plan to condition. Do you need a unit for your whole house, or just need one for your shower or sink? You also need to whether the installation is easy or not and how easy it is to replace the cartridges. Other questions, like how often you need to replace the cartridges, how much does it cost you, are also needed to consider. When looking for them, you will find some of them are very affordable, but you need to remember although the initial cost is lower than others, its filters are very expensive. Many companies make their money not on the softeners themselves but the filters. The top rated types of water softening systems are reverse osmosis systems, salt-based softeners, salt-free softeners as well as magnetic softening systems. I will talk about these top types later.
