The only thing about a water softener is it replaces the hardness with salt. VERY BAD FOR PLANTS. Does the RO system remove all the salt afterwords?
I read somewhere that running the softened water through the filter worked better because the salts were easier to remove than the minerals. Whether it's true or not I don't know. I would think though, that as salt is a disolved solid, it would be removed the same as the minerals are.Originally Posted by [b
To improve the life of the membranes you have to occasionally back flush it to remove the crud it filters out of the water. Also, if you have a TFM type membrane, you need a good carbon prefilter to remove chlorine from the water. Chlorine will destroy the thin film membrane in short order.
