Gotta say, this is a great softener. That said, full satisfaction starts with understanding how water softeners work, and realizing this is NOT a $1000 or more big-name whole house system, but a small, convenient, portable RV-type system, to start with. I mean, it works just as well as a $1000 unit, but you have to manually regen it, and you have to regen more frequently than a large house-sized unit.
In a whole house system, you have a seperate brine tank, most likely you have automatic timers or controls to backflush, rinse, etc., and you simply put salt in the brine tank and walk away. Water still too hard, you change the settings on the controller and again forget it. NOT THIS UNIT. You work it, you flush it, you backflush and rinse it YOURSELF. It does require you to manually change over hoses (or to rig up the manifold outside) to do these standard operations yourself.
Everyone who gave this unit negative complaints that I saw, made the same complaint -...
Staying in a Central Texas RV resort. Friends told us the water here was very hard. Noticed the dishes in dish washer were very spotted after a wash. Got this water softener and installed it. Very easy, took minutes.... Came with test strips. Tested the water coming out of the RV park faucet and it was "very hard." Water after the softener read "very soft." After installation, let the hot water heater replinish its water before using the dishwasher or washing machine. Shower water definitely had that soft water feel. Operated dish water and........no spots!!! We noticed that most Fulltimers in our RV resort had this softener sitting outside their RV hooked up in use. Expect the hardwater stains on the shower walls will also disappear. Over time this softener will save the hardwater buildup in all applicable appliances.... washer, fridge ice maker, dishwasher, etc... Highly recommend. Does require recharging with 2 boxes of table salt periodically...
The wife and I are full time Rv'ers. We are traveling out west and have encounter that every campground we are staying at has extremely hard water. Of course we all know the lime damage using hard water over time can do to the coach and especially to the electric hot water heater. I have always been skeptical about purchasing a softener, because I was concerned that there may be salt in the water supply and of course wondered would it work? Knowing that Amazon stands behind their sales I decided to make this purchase and we are glad I did. The softener has been in operation now for one full month in this hard water environment and it has exceeded our expectations. We have a washer and dryer, dishwasher and use the shower in our coach and after a full months operation I had to regenerate it for the first time today. Regeneration was also a consideration because it states you need to run fresh water through the unit for 20 minutes to rinse the salt out of it and I was...
