Question Proper order of Filters

Hi, I'm in process of re-doing my mess of a water system. I have a sediment filter, a taste/smell filter, and an Eco softener. Could someone tell me the proper order of installation from my well? I'm assuming the sediment filter should come before the softener, but I'm not sure about the taste/smell filter.

thank you!

Install the sediment filter first. Make sure that it allows enough flow rate as not to cause other problems down the road.

Then you can place the softener. This will take out, amoung other things, iron and calcium. If you are using a "taste and odor filter", then you can place one near the POU (point of us) location such as a kitchen faucet. This will make it last longer as it will not be deminished by the shower, washer, dishwasher, etc.

This is just a general recommendeation. More specific details can be provided with a better explanation about your water concerns and configurations.
