we have a water softener installed and i would like to add a whole house water filtering system, but both of these systems need filters changed periodically, and we have to climb up the shelf and cross over the basement to a corner of the house to do this. its difficult to do this. i wanted to know if a pipe could be run to the part of the basement that isn't a "shelf", has a regular ceiling of 8 feet. So my question isn't about a water filtration system but about moving the main water line to a different more accessible spot in the basement and then installing the water softener system and water filtration system next to that so we don't have to crawl across the basement to the corner where the main water line c omes from the well. sorry this is so long to explain.
I guess it has been my understanding that all these filtering things (water softener hook up or water filtration hook up had to be close to where the water enters the house for some reason, so that is not necessarily the case? The tank where we put the salt is in the easily accessible place of the basement.
