The 2 ways to obtain soft water in a shower are by using a whole house softener or a shower softener (such as the “ShowerStick”). Both use resin beads to soften water via a process called “ion exchange” and the resin is regenerated with salt water.

Subsequently, question is, does a shower filter help with hard water? Not exactly. A softener removes only hard water minerals, like calcium and iron. A shower filter is designed to remove dangerous chemical contaminants and heavy metals. If youve used a softener before, you may have noticed that your skin feels slippery after showering.
