    Default Whole house water filter recommendations?

    I have to say researching whole house water filters can be difficult. Lots of hyperbole and no documentation. I currently have a water softener with a WS-1 valve. My ward is hard and stinks of chlorine. I figured it was time to start filtering my water and stop buying bottled water. I have looked into so many units on the net and I'm confused to say the least.

    I do not want an RO system. I'm leaning towards KDF Catalytic Carbon types.

    I have read I can retrofit my softener with a CanPro MediaGuard, but have read about mixed results.

    Do I want a system that backwahes? If so, why do so many leading whole house filters omit backwashing(Aquasanna, Crystal Quest, Pelican, etc)?

    My ears are open? I appreciate any advice.
