Residential Water Softeners

Research Home Water Softeners by Brand or Style

Residential water softeners are those models that are designed to work for households only.

You can choose an inline whole house water softener system, or from various point of use devices, such as shower water softeners.

We also feature the more controversial types, such as magnetic water softeners.

Salt-free water softener systems are now very popular, too.

Use these links to find the type or brand of water softener you're looking for, and read detailed reviews of each.

Residential Water Softeners By Brand

Culligan Water Softeners
Highly regarded, these softener systems are second to none in our opinion. Not the most affordable.

Fleck Water Softeners
Another well-regarded brand, Fleck will not let you down.

GE Water Softeners
GE is one of the biggest brands in the world. We like their affordability and availability, but prefer a company that specializes in softeners.

Kenmore Water Softeners
Another famous brand with a finger in many pies.

Kinetico Water Softeners
A more obscure company, but don't let that put you off their excellent residential water softener systems.

MacClean Water Softeners
This company's products are our #1 cause of consumer questions and complaints, usually because of a missing manual or regeneration malfunction.

Morton Water Softeners
Not one of the best-known brands. But they perform well for the price.

North Star Water Softeners
We'd avoid these, just because they're not easy to find.

Whirlpool Water Softeners
You can't really go wrong with Whirlpool. One of the better brands.

Calgon Water Softener
It's not a machine, it's a powder or liquid you add to your laundry. One of the all-American staples.
