I have just installed a water softener and I am now looking for help on where to hookup my supply line for my under sink water filter. I have the choice of connecting it to either the output from the water softener, or the water supply just before the water softener (in effect directly from the city water).

The reason I ask is that I have heard that you should not drink water from a water softener because of the sodium it adds, so I was thinking perhaps its better to tap into the water supply just before the water softener.

Any thoughts?

Hi, You can install the ro under the sink on the cold line. The RO system will take out any salt left in the water from a softener.
If you install the line on the tap before the softener the membrain will not last as long.
