    I recently got a used Kinetico Supra K45. I took it to the local Kinetico dealer and they rebuilt it for $625.

    They mentioned based on the city I am in that I should have a chlorine filter in front of the softener. Is this really necessary? Where can I get one for a decent price?

    I'm not entirely happy with the Kinetico dealer. They wouldn't provide any sort of installation directions even after spending $625. The older retired guy that does all the reconditioning only works Mondays and Tuesday. He would have probably helped me if the was there when I picked up the unit. He gave me a set of plumbing adapters he was probably supposed to charge for.

    Chlorine will take it's toll on your softener. You don't "Have To" get a carbon filter, but IMO, it's a good idea. The unit will last longer and it will improve the taste of your water. You can buy a carbon filter from a number of online dealer for about the same price of your rebuilt softener. The installation could be easy depending on the type of piping you have.
