    RO Installation

    Got my RO unit; trying to figure how best to install it. Should I hook it up pre-water softener or post. The pre water softener is hard water, the reason for the softener. Post softener, is the salt the system uses an issue?

    I used the attachment that peirces the line. That's more of a permanent installation.
