Question:

What are the best products for DIY no-salt water softeners for a home? I see a variety of ads, but I'm not sure of best deal and product.

Answer:

Just like any water treatment product out there (especially with the information on the Internet), tons of options and reviews are available. I have found the most success and best performance from the Culligan and GE products. Culligan is the best on the market -- water treatment is all it has done for years, and it's very good at it. GE also has some really strong products on the market for water treatment. With some basic plumbing skills -- you will more than likely have to cut pipes and sweat some joints -- you should be able to install an entry-level water softener from one of the big-box stores.
