New Softener needed

Post by milspec6 on Mon May 09, 2016 9:36 am

My house softener has finally committed suicide. It was an old Kenmore model that came with the house and I am actually glad it is now dead so that I can replace it.

I took the large portable units out of my trucks to save on space a few months ago and plan on just tanking up off the house every morning from a dedicated spigot, but for that, I will need a reliable unit.

Luckily, being a bachelor, my water needs are not that great and adding another 200 gallons or so for the trucks still keeps me in the standard family capacity so I don't need some monster commercial unit.

The question is which brands are reliable these days? Around here, I mainly see RainSoft and Culligan systems, but they also come with proprietary parts and expensive maint. contracts, but I don't want anything to do with the home improvement models built by Morton or Kenmore either.

Anyone have any experience with a solid brand and model....probably a dual tank model? I do prefer the salt method as I have not read any great performance studies from the salt-free systems.

Why not just use the one you took out of the van.

I guess I could, but it wouldn't last very long with the hardness in my town. I would have to recharge it every couple of days.

I suppose I could buy a brine tank and convert it to a auto head??? I might do that.
