Just to make sure I understand, the recommended set up from Diamond Pure is the water softener + RO system. This will soften and purify the water?

The softener will be one tank (or two if you also do a whole house carbon filter) and a brine tank (that contains the salt pellets you add every few months). This softener system will typically be installed in your garage or on the side of your house. This softens all the water that goes through it. And like mentioned above, if softened water goes to water your plants, you will want to use potassium pellets instead of sodium pellets.

Softened water is not purified. The RO (reverse osmosis) system purifies your drinking water and is typically installed under the kitchen sink. They will add a faucet at the sink that will provide the purified water. If you are able to run a line from the RO to the refrigerator, that would be good for getting purified water from the refrigerator and making ice from purified water (the comment above about refrigerator water pressure is something to keep in mind).
