Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best choice for us! If you are looking for a water treatment and soft water the hybrid model does both. Ours is connected to our water input. The carbon filter in the unit clears salt taste/chorine out We wanted soft water both cold and hot but not salt for cooking etc. This model has worked out great for our lifestyle

Kitchen water

Should I still bypass the kitchen and refridge water supply with this unit or it is ok to use this softened and filtered water for the whole house?Would the latter option cause lead leaking from faucets into drinking water?We have city water as supply and hardness is like 12 to 17. What is hardness after softening with this model?
Asked by:
Hi, Thank you for taking the time to contact Sears. With the use of this water softener that has the filtration built into it, the benefit is to allow the water to go through the entire home. There is no need to bypass the kitchen faucet or refrigerator filter. Salt or Sodium Chloride does not get into the water supply. You will get a minute amount of Sodium equivalent to what is found in 1 cup of milk or a slice of white bread. Salt or Sodium Chloride is used to clean the beads inside the water softener that removes the Hardness minerals. A water softener that is properly programmed will take the water hardness down to zero. For municipal water, set the water softener at the number from the water test in the store or from calling the local municipal water treatment department. The water softener program is set in Grains per Gallon, or GPG. Some water departments will give the hardness rating in PPM or Parts Per Million. If that is the case, take the number from the water department and divide by 17. We see the local water is between 12 and 17. We would error on the higher side and set the water softener at 17. Refer to the owners manual for programming information. Have a great day!

Family size/comparison

We were looking at purchasing Kenmore®/MD 'Ultra Soft®/MD 800' Water Softener for our family of 6, but I'm wondering what this model does that the other doesn't. We will have well water which I know we need get tested but just curious if this model may be a better option for our family.
Asked by: Mandy306
Hello Mandy306, Please be advised our supplier states the Kenmore®/MD Hybrid Water Softener is a great and unique product for most families in that it filters and softens the water. For a family of six the Kenmore®/MD 'Ultra Soft®/MD 800' Water Softener model may be better suited particulalry if the water is over 25 grains hard. The water test will confirm this. Thanks for shopping at Sears and have a great day!
