Question about whole-house water softeners/filters (servicing)

13 years ago

Two question areas really...

1) How often, what kind and what cost of maintenance is typically needed for whole-house water softeners? (We have an older salt or salt-alternative one that was revived a couple years ago by the company that sold it.... the tank now appears dry... salt still there... not sure what is going on with the water routing).

2) Interested in adding a whole-house filter (carbon?)... we have always had scale deposits where we are in Southern California and the prior owner in the 1990s had an old one. Usual cost, any maker recommendations, and type tips? (For instance if you fill a crockpot and use it as a humidifier, by the time the water is nearly gone, you'll have solid white on the bottom/inside of the crockery.)
