Bauner, I had to replace the softener in my first home about a year after we moved in. It can be a pain in the arse as you’ll likely have to solder (use map gas) a slowly draining wet pipe. And there will likely be a metal to plastic connection so you’ll have to make sure you do things in the correct order.

The biggest problem we ran into was the connections to the new softener were wider than the distance between the pipes that ran to the original softener. So there was some extra work to slightly move the pipes.

And in my old house the pipes were tight to the cinder block wall making the extended heating of the wet pipes interesting.
