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.

Highly regarded, these softener systems are second to none in our opinion. Not the most affordable.
Another well-regarded brand, Fleck will not let you down.
GE is one of the biggest brands in the world. We like their affordability and availability, but prefer a company that specializes in softeners.
Another famous brand with a finger in many pies.
A more obscure company, but don't let that put you off their excellent residential water softener systems.
This company's products are our #1 cause of consumer questions and complaints, usually because of a missing manual or regeneration malfunction.
Not one of the best-known brands. But they perform well for the price.
Star Water Softeners
We'd avoid these, just because they're not easy to find.
You can't really go wrong with Whirlpool. One of the better brands.
It's not a machine, it's a powder or liquid you add to your laundry. One of the all-American staples.
