Anyone have any recommendations for removing hard water?
Im looking at various whole-house filtration systems.

Need to test first, to see just how hard it really is, but I know its more than it should because I see mineral deposits and its killing my faucets.
Im worried its going to take out my appliances too.

Looking at something like this for testing the water.

Water softeners seem to work quite well. You can go pricy like a Kinitico but most of them anymore use a water use reader to only recharge when needed.

The one I replaced last year cut salt usage by 50% easily.

I just use a whole house charcoal filter and have no more problems

Test your water and if hard, look for an industry standard softener system. I'd recommend a Fleck 5600 SXT.

Blasphamy! I'd recommend a Clack WS1. Higher flow, less pressure drop...etc.

So, which is better and why...the one piece type cabinet units or the two piece types?

My preference is for the two piece systems.

A separate salt tank usually holds more salt, is easier to fill, and has less tight spaces (like between the resin tank and cabinet) that promote bridging of salt.

Really though, it matters more what you can fit.
