    I am looking for something like a Crystal Quest system CQE-WH-01127? It is a combination filtration system first, then a softener and then a final filter.

    http://www.crystalquest.com/watersoftener.htm

    I am building a house on the coast of NC that has a community water system that originates from wells that is treated with Chlorine. The water has been tested at 16 grains of hardness and the chlorine taste is bad.

    Also, this will be a weekend home and will not be used all the time. How does one deal with water sitting in the softener for a at least a week or more at a time.

    The link to our recent water data is below.

    Would appreciate any help.

    Gary Slusser That's all folks!

    I don't suggest the system or any like it. It is overpriced for what it is and you don't need all that filtration to remove chlorine. But you need a softener.
