In respect to this, what should a water softener be set at?
Water Softener "Hardness Setting" The hardness range is from 1 to 99 grains per gallon.
Also, can I drink softened water? However, there has been no official verdict to state that drinking softened water is a problem and softened water is considered safe to drink. Areas with especially hard water will require more salt to soften the water, and therefore the softened water contains higher sodium levels.
Beside this, can I install my own water softener?
Installing a water softener yourself allows you to work on the project at your own pace and without spending extra money on a plumber. If you're simply replacing an old water softener, this can be done in under an hour. You may have copper, PVC, CPVC, steel or PEX plumbing.
Should cold water be softened?
It has been recommended to soften just the cold water so that when we shower, the unsoftened hot water mixes with the softened cold and creates a good feeling on the skin.
