Im moving into a new house wear the area has hard water (texas). I would like any recomendations on a house water softener. I see that most of them need salt added all the time? Should I just get one from Sears?

What about this company?

They ALL use salt/potassium/K-life etc... If the system does not use salt it is not softening.

Most of your big box store softeners are made by ECOWATER.
They are the best of the cheap disposable softeners.
NOTE: They are nothing like the equipment an ECO dealer sells.

Run-away Exclamation

My advise, If you want a pro turn key job contact your local ECOWATER dealer.
If you want high quality at a lower price find an independent dealer (like myself) that uses digital FLECK control valves.
If you want cheap - buy from Sears, Lowes etc...

If you get a water softener, use it for everything except your kitchen. Otherwise, buy bottled water to drink and cook.

If you are on a municipal water system I recommend getting a Multi-Pure drinking water system and make your own bottled water Cool

Yeah, I've been selling them for about 12 years and they are powerful little filters.
I could make more money selling RO's but the MP's perform better @ a much lower cost.

They also work on non-municipal water as long as it is microbiologically safe to begin with.

Maybe a good idea on paper but it really does not work well in the field.
They are high dollar and a real PITA to work on. I don't care for Kinetico.
