>        Whats the difference between conditioned water and softened water
In softened water the calcium and magnesium content is replaced with sodium. In conditioned water, the calcium ions remain suspended in the water as small particles, but their propensity to form limescale is reduced. Both methods have been shown prevent the formation of crystaline deposits (limescale) in pipes, but water conditioners are more controversial and do not work for everyone. There is, however, anecdotal evidence and also some laboratory trials which show, for some people at least, they are effective. With conditioned water you have the added benefit that the calcium remains in the water, which is a good dietary mineral. With softened water you have the problem that the sodium content of the water is increased which may make is unsuitable for drinking.
