Haven’t had a hard water issue for years, and I have no softener. Of course this is because I’m in MPLS. They do a lot of treatment before it ever gets to the house. When I was up in Coon Rapids, softener was a must.

Mpls water is from the river. Surface sources are generally much softer since they didn’t migrate through 100′ of limestone, picking up calcium carbonate on the way. Mpls also uses flocculation to further clear the water of dissolved and suspended minerals.
