Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job well I installed this water softener about 6 months ago, and it has been working great. We have very hard water in our area, and we can feel the difference in the shower and see the difference in that the dishes no longer have build up. I also like the feature that it tells me how many days until the salt is expected to run out. January 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Thisproduct saves water and salt compared to my older unit This water softener uses less salt and water than my previous one, and takes up less space in my utility room. I like the fact that it lets you know when to add salt and that you can actually see how much salt is used each time it regenerates. I have only had it for 2 weeks, but so far it seems to be working perfectly. I was a little surprised at the expense of installation, as it needed different plumbing than my older unit , which added almost $250 to the cost of the unit. However, if you can install it yourself, it is a very good value for the price. February 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product This softener was easy to install and it works great February 26, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by poor pipe fittings While I have no problems with the unit itself, I do question the method used to connect up the piping to the unit. Plastic "C" clips would not be my first choice of connector. The clips provided for the main water supply and return while sturdy, still did not stop the connections weeping for a day or so until the "O" rings bedded down. The clip for the drain connection was a joke. The first time I ran the recharge cycle the force from the pump purging itself blew the clip off and the drain elbow out, not good! After a couple more runs it seem to be okay, but for my own peace of mind I drilled a small hole in the top of the clip and safety wired it in place aircraft style. September 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by simple install - nice product The work took me two hours. A lot of it was the tear out of the old system. The new softener has good directions and with the correct hook up hoses is very simple to install. READ the manual and secure your waste line before running. The first air bubble out the waste line will shoot water, so be ready perhaps with a towel laid over the waste line and drain. I attached a photo of my homemade backwash anti spurt device made from a Home Depot 5 gallon pail. drop waste line into the top, mounted to the lid. Run separate new drain line out the bottom (seal with old plumbers putty - silicone caulk did not work on the bucket). This prevents the water from shoot out, by giving place for the force to lessen. Gravity drains the rest. November 20, 2012
