Is my water in need of a softener at 15 grains per gallon?

Just wondering if I should get a water softener with 15 grains per gallon after a water test?

Thanks

I would answer your question with a definite YES. Personally I'd install a water softener if you had 5 grains of hardness. All water is different and a softener removes a variety of nasties from the water. Conditioned water is so much better than unconditioned water, no matter how slight, even if it is not noticeable, it will prolong the life of your water heater, dishwasher, and other plumbing parts. It is a worthwhile investment (note I said investment and not purchase). And if your water isn't that hard, in the long run, your conditioning system will last longer as well.

It's spelled and pronounced "Clack" and they have been manufacturing a very good quality product for many years. Don't know their website offhand, but a google search should help you find it.
