Welcome and congrats on your first post ElfSlickDiQ  Indeed, this is a good deal as I usually purchase this salt at my local Wal-Mart store for $4.64.  I can use my Sears SYWR points to pay for this purchase (using points, no sales tax is charged, at least here in Ohio), so your post was valuable to me! Thanks and keep using FW!

Sorry, but I only use brand name NaCl... Oh - Morton is BN? Well...still - I gotta have something to complain about. Repped!

(not a bad deal to have it at pick-up ready and waiting for load)

So you guys must use this for whole house water softening system? Any recommendations on what's good?

rated:
You can also dump it in your pool if you have a chlorine generator. The pellets dissolve very quickly

Thanks, OP.  Just FYI for those with a Sam's Club membership, this can also be found in Club for $3.98, depending on your area:

$4.18 at my Sam's Club. I bought a bag when I couldn't find any rock salt to put on my sidewalk after the last snowfall. It worked great! Now I need a great price of a water softening unit

Ordered a whole-house carbon filter and softener from

http://www.ohiopurewater.com/shop/customer/home.php

Got the units assembled myself, then hired a plumber to make the final connections. The total cost ended up being very reasonable this way. If you are somewhat handy, give 'em a call.

What model did you get and roughly how much did the plumber end up costing?

  I bought a softener from Ohio Pure Water last yr.  Their customer service is superb.  I did the whole installation myself.  I used Sharkbites and Pex to make the connections, and used PVC for drainage.  Sharkbites adapters ain't cheap, but its still cheaper than using a plumber.  Couple plumber quoted me $900-$1200 for the installation - mainly due to a floor drain is not close to where I want to place the softener.

I paid about $500 for the installation, then for him to run it through the full set of cycles to make sure everything ran properly. Keep in mind this was for two units, a charcoal filter followed by a softener. I don't recall the specs on the units themselves, but that shouldn't affect installation cost. I do remember we went with Fleck 2510 digital control valves.

Just want to add, if you have any amount of iron in the water I would put the carbon in AFTER the softener.  If it is hardness and smell then it could go before the softener.

No iron in our water. In our case, Ohio Pure Water suggested the carbon filter before the softener to remove the chlorine before the softener because chlorine shortens the life of the softening resins.

What about water taste? I've been reading that softeners change the water taste to the point where people do not drink their water anymore?

rated:
Depends on the before taste of the water. Our filter system is great, love the taste of filtered, softened water (using whole house softener, RO under sink)

Depends on the softener and how "soft" you make the water.
I grew up on hard water, thought it tasted better than friends in town. (still do)
My grandmother had a non-softened line to her kitchen sink, just for drinking water.

Hard water tastes much better, but the buildup can cause holy heck on your water lines and fixtures, plus hard water is worse for cleaning and bathing.
I can tell when my softener needs salt when rinsing in the shower takes more water and effort. -It's harder to "feel clean" with hard water.

Correct for my household.  Trying to decide whether to invest in a reverse osmosis system for drinking water or whether to continue paying the deer park man.

It does taste a bit on the salty side.  Note, however:

1)  Our house has the usual water softener pre-plumb--which means the kitchen sink cold water is *NOT* from the water softener for this very reason.

2)  We use a reverse osmosis system.  It strips most of the salt out anyway.  (Yes, that's not a contradiction with #1.  The builder messed up, the reverse osmosis is not being fed from the kitchen cold in the first place.)

Newer softeners use less salt and there is more sodium in a glass of milk. I have the 3rd worst water in the nation in Las Vegas, so I just put in a water softener. I water my indoor plants with the tap and they are growing faster and looking healthier.
