    (Well water pump systems)

    Pros: I see alot of Calcium buildup in shower heads,other faucets around the house, and hot water tanks when they don't have a water softener.

    "Secondary water standards for drinking water" Nothing over 500TDS for drinking water. Everyone mostly likes bottle water to where it's easy to sell an RO system after you install a water softener.

    Cons: Once you have sized your water softener it's now time to see if that water softener is going to work for your needs. Check your "flow rates" on the water softener. I don't want you having problems running multiple faucets at the same time.

    Remember this "The larger the pipe, the less the friction loss, the greater the volume, the better the pressure". Our job stops at the house valve.

    "water savers" used to save water for people on city water that has higher water pressure than someone on a traditional well system(goodbye water saver aka "flow restrictor").
