    ok, after 35 years of getting our water from the New York City Aquaduct, my town is now supplying water from a newly dug well and we were advised to get a water softener.
    So how do I proceed?
    So many types of softeners and differences in hardness.
    Where do I begin?
    Thank you.

    You can buy a water testing kit and then test your water for hardness, iron, and etc. Then you can get an idea on what
    size softener to get. You could also can Culligan and have them do everything if you don't want to do it yourself.

    Good idea. So far, it’s been 2 days and I cannot tell the difference. But maybe there’s still “old” water left in the pipes.
