Moving water softener...

I am finishing my basement and my problem is that my water softener was put in a bad spot. My incoming water line is in the corner of the basement. I would like to run that line to the center of the basement near the water heater and furnace since that area will stay unfinished. Are there any codes or anything that I have to worry about? I know to keep 30" clear from the front of the furnace, but can I put the softener anywhere else, like behind the furnace or next to the water heater?

There should be no problem with moving it there. Double-check with your Building Inspection Department for local codes, permit and inspection requirements, etc.
Good Luck!
