A water softener and an iron filter are two different items.
Try a real plumbing store if you want some good advice.

There is no truth to that at all. The media for removing iron and the media for softening water is two completely separate things.

The softener will remove a small amount of iron but the softening capabilities are greatly diminished as time goes on...
