    We recently moved into a two story house that appears to not be softener installation friendly The laundry room drain is located upstairs and the water main itself is located off of the living room rather than on the garage side of the house like the other house we lived in. I have been going around with my husband about whether or not putting one in this house is even doable, plus we need to replace the head unit on the softener anyway since the dial broke on it about 8 months ago (an old Fleck system). So my question is--is it worth the hassle to put one in this house?

    Is it possible to install the unit outside? Is it possible to reroute the main water to the garage? More info is needed.

    Does this house have a system right now?
    Is it that the system is just not working?
