The softener is working great, but drinking the hard water through a carbon filter was a bad idea. We could still taste the chlorine even though it was greatly reduced (Mono is using a LOT), and the family didn't like the mineral taste.

So we bought an APEC 5-stage reverse osmosis water filter from amazon.ca, and hooked it in downstream of the softener. Now the water tastes very neutral, like it should. I hired Darryl of Plumbing Smith to do it. Good install, and the APEC unit seems very well built - better than my Whirlpool WHEER RO system at the last house. And going this way it cost me about half the price that the in-town shops were quoting for RO systems.
