We are building a new house. Our well water is rather hard so we need a softener. My husband has been investigating them and we are confused on how much to spend.

We have 4 people in our family and our house is 2600 sq. ft. One of the more expensive units is made by Kinetico. They claim that theirs is better because it uses much less water and salt when it regenerates. It costs $1900.00. Or are their better ones for cheaper? We have looked at several that are less money but they say you need to add more salt more often and they use a lot more water to regenerate.

Any suggestions or comments?

Thanks in advance,

Kinetico is a good product but $1,900 for a water softener sounds out of line. Are you sure it is not some combination unit that does a lot more than just soften water?
