You know, you would not think it would be a hard thing to do to choose a whole house water softener. Like any appliance research, google is your friend.
Or is it? I have been toying between a Whirpool WHES40, a Kenmoore model, and a Culligan Gold Series water softener. Unfortunatly reviews and comparisons are scarce on the internet, at least according to google. 🙁
I eventually opted for the Culligan as it had a much better warranty that all the others (10 years parts and labor vs 1 year parts), albeit being a couple of hundred dollars more – it did include some nice features, and looked a lot more sturdy and robust. But as I know, and my wife keeps telling me, looks are not everything. 🙁
I hope I have made the right decision. I will only know when it comes to making a warranty call.
However, my lovely wife and I are very much looking forward to soft water…
