How much does a water softener cost? How much does a water softener cost to operate?
Some softeners are more efficient than others and as a result the costs do differ. There are timered softeners and on demand (metered) softeners available. The on demand systems produces soft water up to 40% more efficiently over timered systems per pound of salt. Generally water softener costs can vary between $400 and $2,500 per system depending on your homes needs. Wanter softeners for almost all homes should never cost over $2500 installed unless there are some extreme circumstances that are present
Generally the overall costs of operation of a water softener can vary between 25 and 50 cents per day. The costs of water softeners are usually far outweighed by the benefits and cost savings obtained, through using softened water.
