Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by Chris no suction
My pump would not suck the chemical from the tank. I have a sprinkler pump that might not have enough suction power to work with this system.. i had to buy a dosing pump to be able to send the chemical from the tank to the pump. Now it works as it is supposed to.
The chemical is too expensive, though. I found a cheaper option of the chemical(from another manufacturer) on the Internet and saving a lot of money. The dosing pump that i bought is a milton roy, model AA141-352SI

There are a few things you NEED to understand before you buy this product that are NOT SPELLED OUT CLEARLY ENOUGH BY THE MANUFACTURER. 1) what kind of well system do you have 2) what HP is your pump 3) what is your install and running budget. The system is designed for installation on the suction side of a pump and initially comes across as inexpensive - <$100 for the tank system and <$10/gal for the chemicals. However, if you have a submersible well pump like I do (and most of the people do in my area) and you also use that well for your house supply, the initial cost will be MUCH greater as I found out. First off, you will need to have an electrician install an outlet at your well. Second, for a submersible well, you will need to buy an injection pump kit from the company (WM Barr) at $250. Third, if your well is also being used for your house water, you will need a pump start relay $50 (and installed by an electrician). Forth, you will need a signal wire installed (in my case trenched to well) from your irrigation controller to start the relay above. Fifth, you will need to make sure you have a backflow preventer installed (you should have this already) and it is installed BEFORE the injection point. If it isn't you will need to move it. So, your $100 turns into $400 plus installation and electrical work. I did the work myself, but this could easily run $600-900. Also, for a 2HP pump, as I have, the MINIMUM amount of Norust chemical the manufacturer recommends is 8 gal. That's 8gal x $9/gal = $72 at the HomeDepot. I hope this thing works....heads up to all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by et1jim Too Costly
Bought this system 2 years ago. Previously used Scott's Lawn Service, but they raised rate too much.
System was great for first year, but cost of chemicals is a bit high. The system has been un-useable for last 8-9 months due to suction problem. The troubleshooting advice on their website is very vague, at best. The cost of replacement parts is a little high, considering the overall cost of a new system. Shipping cost for replacement parts is way too high. An item weighing less than a pound should not cost almost $12 to ship from TN to FL.

This item has helped keep rust from the sprinklers from ruining the new paint job on my house. Simple to set up and maintain. The company recommended 2 gallons per 30, but 3 gallons woks better.

We have had this system over 10 years. Requires constant tweeking but does keep the rust away although it costs $12.00 per week in their product. Constantly needs replacement parts. The parts are reasonable but the shipping obscene. Because of that I have decide to scrap the system. If they go to cheaper shipping for parts I would consider using it again. They also sell a product that removes rust which works very well.
