The amount of water treated and the ease of installation and operation are important factors. It's impossible to ignore the required investment. Today, the average cost of a water softener system (including installation) often ranges between $700 and $1,600.
Value for money impacts how a water softener ranks. If we think the system over-delivers for the price, then that improves its rating.
Some people compromise quality for cost, as they seek out cheaper models to accommodate their water needs. But not all systems are Nuvo's H2O series, which offer excellent value, especially when you consider they are salt-free water softeners. No more salt refills!
Water softener ratings also take into consideration how often the system must regenerate (typically at least once every two weeks). This factor depends on how hard your water is in the first place.
Find out how much money you'll need to spend to get the best water softeners in your budget range.
