Do I need a water softener?
In large part, the effects and feel of hard water vs. soft water are subjectively based on what the individual is accustomed to. Some people are acclimated to soft water and opt to install and use water softeners on their home water system. These can reduce hardness and related hardness effects. Persons with sodium regulated diets are cautioned to avoid the types of softeners that increase sodium content in their drinking water. If individuals who insist on having a water softener have concerns about sodium they should specify installation of another type of water softener that does not increase sodium. Or, sodium can be removed after softening by a point-of-use filter/conditioner at the tap.
