Westfield water is extremely hard and mineral ridden. If not softened and filtered, the pipes and appliances can have their useful lives shortened considerably. Kinetco® won our bid for this appliance, the water softner. This is no small addition to the house. A decent-sized softner runs a pretty penny, needs its own special tap, and takes up a good bit of the front corner of our garage for it and the salt storage unit. However, it works! And, it does additional wonders for the skin and hair … soft, soft, soft.
