No, a water softener is a great first step into water filtration but only removes the hardness. A whole house filter removes impurity’s from your water to give you drinking quality water from every faucet in your home. A water softener and whole house filter are normally paired together for great water.
The biggest differences is size. The units you can buy from the stores are small and compact. which does not let them wash themselves out properly and leads to a shorter lifespan. The units we install are taller which allow the media to properly lift and wash everything out.
The best way is to get your water tested but the will be some signs. Your soap may not lather up as good as it once did, you will see some white build-up around your shower head, or you may notice more then usual water marks on your dishes after you wash them. You may notice your softener dumping water down the drain.
We always recommend using all natural solar salt, it comes in the blue bags. If you have iron in your water and no iron filter, you should use a green bag of salt mixed in to help remove the iron buildup.
