The water tastes good.
Clothes aren't coming out as clean as they used to. Stains that would normally have come out in the washer now require quite a bit of pre-spotting, and sometimes bleach.
I had very high hopes for the very expensive LifeSource Water Filtration and "water softening" unit. We used to have a soft water system that used salt/potassium, but we were having problems with the taste of the water. The LifeSource web site and literature made me believe that this would be the solution to my problems. Yes, the water tastes great, but it takes extra work now to get my clothes clean (I have 4 year old twin boys, so clothes can get quite dirty). This system doesn't eliminate spots from your faucets or dishes.
In the end, I'm not sure I made the right decision... if I had to do it all over again, I would consider other soft water systems that use salt/potassium.
