I've read so many of these posts and still don't feel I got enough information one way or another about the saltless softeners - also I'm looking for a good whole house filter to filter out the usual contaminents and arsenic. Thoughts?

For me big question is health effects of hard water (20 grains or higher), otherwise best solution will be non-salt water conditioner not a salt base water softeners. Non-salt water conditioner still claim to protect appliance and your plumbing see example simply soft from Aquasana or Pelican which is using name softener. This is misleading simple test will show hardness will not be reduced by any of non-salt base systems magnesium and calcium will be still present in its original amount but with change structure of minerals to prevent build-up. I'd like to find some reliable source confirming hard water effect on health and reliable test by independent body to confirm effectiveness of non-salt water conditioners on appliance and plumbing.

I have installed magnets in three hotels. The last the "hardness" level was 1 prior to and we have raised it to 3 to save the copper pipes. Guess what? the sheets and towels are noticeably softer (as reported by our regular guests). Those of you who are foolish enough to state that magnets don't soften are either mentally blind or are seeing brown.
