I live in central New Jersey in a 48 year old house with a municipal water supply. A water softener was already installed when I bought 12 years ago and I have continued to maintain one. I am in the process of redoing the basement and am considering removing the softener. Is the softener really an advantage to the plumbing system or just a preference for more suds? Any experience with the magnetic softeners that attach to the water pipes?
