A softener softens so its not hard on your plumbing fixtures skin or detergents. More to follow
Why a whole house filter because the city can only chemically treat water not filter it before it gets to you. a filter does for your house what the city wishes they could do for everyone but mass filtration is crazy expensive time and equipment for billions of gallons is just not gonna happen we are talking baseball arena filter media, but for your house its only a small tank that sits on top of your softener and it will work for over 5 years without service!
So now you have velvet soft nice filtered water for your home and family , you have KDF active carbon blend that removes allot of fluoride chlorine hexane POFA's and other halogen pesticides and heavy metals that you probably dont even want to know are in your water. The BEST PART!? the carbon kdf filter protects your lower softener giving it twice the life and your softener flushes the carbon media with its disscharge salt cleaning and refreshing it without adding salt to the water you use<greatestcomboever. If you live in the greater Phoenix area you need a unit like this. You literally dont know what your missing
oh and the combination with water meter and commercial grade softener media lasts longer and saves over< %50%!! salt usage when it needs to regenerate.
