High Efficiency Water Softener

A water softener is a type of whole house water treatment system that is designed for removing hard water minerals (magnesium & calcium).   It will also effectively remove dissolved iron and manganese from the water.  Additionally, for water with high levels of iron or manganese (“the stainers”), an “up-flow” water softener is recommended to prevent mineral build-up in the bottom of the tank.  Also, high efficiency water softeners that are more efficient with both water and salt usage are preferred.
