A quick question, since I'm uncertain as to how a water softner works. Does having a water softner effect the production of RO/DI at all? Would it make the RO/DI unit work harder, easier, or have no effect (with the membranes and filters)? I have horrible water, so a softner is necessary. I would think it's easier on the RO/DI unit/membranes/filters/cartridges, but I am not sure.
