I am putting in a water softener myself. I am really looking forward to learning to sweating the copper pipes.
My questions if anybody could help me understand.
1.) Confused, yes or no - should I run soften water or unsoften water to the kitchen?
2.) If I run soften water to the kitchen, do they make an inline filter for removing sodium I could put inline right before my pipes get to the kitchen? Can anybody recommend one?
3.) If I put a whole house large sediment inline filter before a water softener, do I run the risk of reducing water pressure too much? Can anybody recommend an inline cartridge whole house filter?
4.) If I do run Pex tubing, I read somewhere about it reducing circumference over long distances (or something like that), is this something to worry about?
5.) Is there really a difference between water softeners? I am thinking about buy a Norton System Saver. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/allRe...uct_id=2216467
Thank you guys!
