I have been looking for a deal on a water softener since I bought my house last year. Is this a good purchase?

I would recommend against this softener for 2 reasons:
1. It's proprietary - get a standard Fleck unit with selectable grain size, tank size, salt tank size - and is tunable to your needs via injectors.
- It does not have to be a Fleck, but they are super popular - just get something non-proprietary imo.
2. Yes I owned this exact unit, until i learned the lessons above.

Can you post an example so I know I am looking at the correct item please?

My house had the WHES40 for the past 10 years, no issues. It finally gave up the ghost... I looked around for a drop in replacement. Lowes didn't have that model so they can charge what they want for this model. I ended up buying the WHES40E from Amazon. This is exactly what I had (E stands for E-Commerce. No physical difference so it was easy to install) and it is shipped to your door, free! I think this is now $570 from Amazon.

Haven't had any issues regarding proprietary design... I just add salt.....

I am using a similar model and have had no issues so far. You can use any salt that is sold in Costco or Lowe's and it works fine. What was the issue you faced?

these are great. I dont see anything proprietary about this unit. water in and water out. Add salt and set you hardness. Done. I think there is a cleaning solution you can buy and that increases the warranty to 2 years I believe. I do it on mine who knows if its worth it or not. Been running fine with no issues for 3 years now. Good deal.

Maybe I'm weird, but I like soft water for everything except a shower. I never feel quite clean with the oily feeling it leaves.

Edit, my issue is addresses in this article: https://www.skincarebyalana.com/b...oft-water/
