Thread: Whole house carbon filter installation with softener

  1. #1

    Default Whole house carbon filter installation with softener

    We live in a lake community with our own water treatment and sewer system. The water is good, but very hard. No sediment, no iron or sulfur, but a chlorine smell and taste sometimes. I need to install a water softener, I know that, but the wife is insisting on a whole house carbon filter and a RO system under the sink.

    The softener and RO I am pretty confident on hooking up, but my question is:
    Does it matter where the whole house filter is installed in the water system? beofre the water heater? between the water heater and the softenr?

    I am thinking the best place is between the main supply and the softener and water heater with a bypass of some kind. Where do most of you install this type of unit?

    You want it before the water heater and after the softener.
    I'm just starting to work with an old friend of mine to bring solar electric and hot water systems, wind turbines, Flex Fuel Boilers, batteries, hydroponic gardening, books, pellet grills and more. Also the parts for DIY installation.
