Soft Water, Soft Skin!
Updated: Sep 21, 2019
You may want to consider this upgrade. My wife says it's more than OK for her birthday present! Just installed this Pelican system after a trip to the mountains which had us bathing in soft water. This is a permanent media system that doesn't use salt. Will make your water heater and dishwasher last longer. Saves on detergent, soap and shampoo. Prevents calcium deposits in pipes, valves and shower heads. My wife's soft skin is even softer. Nice! Click on pic for link to Pelican.
I connected to the main water supply with these Shark Bite elbows: no soldering!
Plumbed the rest with one inch CPVC pipe. Be sure you glue all the fittings! Have to replace the sediment filter every six to nine months.
