Filter for hard water

Hi EF forum-experts:

Another new to Zurich query. I live in district 2 and the water in my apartment is pretty hard - lots of white residue left behind in the sink and kitchen utensils after cooking & washing.

I read some past threads in the forum archives that Brita filters work well - but the threads were a few years old. Is Brita still the go to?

I was considering
  1. I believe this is an attachment to the water supply under the sink - https://www.brita.ch/de_CH/mypure/p1, but with instructions in German - I am not sure how easy it is for me to fix myself. Has anyone managed this? With sufficient youtube videos I can manage DIY stuff typically
  2. the less desired option - the 8.2l water filter [https://www.brita.ch/de_CH/fill-and-enjoy/flow]

Are there other attachments that I can maybe directly fix to the tap? Like this one - https://www.amazon.com/Brita-Filtrat.../dp/B004INTGKK

I do have a US trip coming up soon, but the taps here are of different dimensions and something from US is not going to work.

I can deal with it in the bathroom sink & tub by wiping down everything after use.

Help please
