Question Portable water softeners

Looking to get a portable water softener for our rig. Wondering what brand units folks are using and how well they work. Thanks

Mobile-Soft-Water 16,000 grain and a two stage pre-filter for us . The difference was night and day while staying in California this winter.

We have the On-The-Go double softener. Been using it for a year now and it's the best thing I've purchased. We wintered in Yuma and the water is so hard there that it leaves water spots on your skin!

Thanks for the responses. Have looked at both of these units and will be getting one soon as the water at our snowbirds park in Florida is quite hard.

I've been using a Flow-Pur softener for a number of years with great results.

Here's another JOF thread on softeners:

The fiancé and I just had the opportunity to use the 16,000 grain On-The-Go Double Standard WS on South Padre Island (witch all of central/south Texas has wicked hard water) in our Eagle trailer. Absolutely amazing!

She was able to wash her ocean salty hair with half the conditioner at home and the soap made 10x the suds as we were used too.

For hard water areas I would definitely recommend getting one. In fact a bought a second one to wash the vehicles as home with. No more hard water spots on the glass.

Thanks for the replies. Definitely going to get one to deal with the hard water in Florida!
