I’m really late to the game on this discussion but we had a water softener put in about 7 years ago and have no regrets. Couple quick things:
1. Your city MIGHT have a fee for purchasing a water softener. When we purchased ours, they looked up our city and found there was a small fee one time fee for having a water softener. Same goes for a new water heater.
2. The first time we used our faucets/toilets after installing the softener the water came out brown. This went away after running the faucets for a while and flushing the toilets several times.
