    Hi,

    I am looking to purchase a water softener to help out my wifes & daughters execma skin conditions, but there are so many options, and so much rubbish out there that I cannot figure out what is a decent system to buy.

    Either want a whole house solution, or at the least, one I can fit for the bath & shower

    If anyone has any knowledge or advice of good worthwhile systems, I would be very very grateful!

    Make sure it's one that regenerates based on the water throughput, ie metered water, rather than every 24 hours whether it's exhausted on not.
