We need a water softener for the house we just bought (on well water). There are quite a few used systems in my area for sale as more and more houses are connecting up to the county water. Is it best to just buy a new system or is used ok? I found one with a fleck control (basic 5600 I think). Do the tanks go bad? How much is the resin? It looks to be a 48,000 system. I think I could buy it for $100.
There are also quite a few Culligan systems. I assume to stay away from these even if they are work (parts would be expensive if it does break?)?
