    Hello,

    I've very limited experience with salt based system and no experience with RO systems.
    I'm in the process of buying a new house and had water tested:
    Calcium 60mg/L
    Magnesium 6 mg/L
    Iron 0.03mg/L
    Hardness 172 mg/L
    pH 7.9
    No bacteria of any kind

    This 1984 house is on a well pump and we are a family of 4. The house has 3.5 baths.but one bathroom was added later as part of the house addition so not sure if main water supply pipe was increased.
    The softener system would be installed in the basement.
    First of all, would you recommend a water softener at all for this level of hardness?
    If yes, what model and what price should I expect?

    Then, what kitchen sink RO would you advise?

    I'd greatly appreciate any recommendations.

    Thank you.

    Kindest regards

    Jakub

    Softener would be nice but probably not necessary. Stay away from the big box stores and the low price junk from online. I can PM you some reputable companies if you would like.
