Answer: 
110. My brother-in-law is one of those engineering nerdy DIY types. He took a volt meter (I'm guessing that's what it's called?) to see how much electricity it uses. The needle barely moved. So I'm guessing I'm essentially spending no money on electricity for my 900.

Answer: 
The power supply plugs into 110 on your wall. There is very LITTLE current drawn from the use of this device. i.e. only enough to operate the tiny motor that rotates through the cycling functions NO, 220 is NOT required.

Answer: 
We have installed ours outside under a shelter. It is protected from the sun and rain by the shelter roof. This is in South Texas so freezing is not a problem. The installation manual indicates it can be installed outside if not subject to freezing temperatures.

Yes but as others have mentioned it should not be put in an environment in which temperatures drop bellowing freezing. To state the obvious, there is water inside of the tank - when water freezes it expands - hence you could crack the tank if it is exposed to freezing temperatures.

As someone else mentioned, I would cover it with something. A friend of mine installed a Waterboss outside in south Florida. He went to go put salt in it and found a small snake inside. He promptly put a grill cover over it with bungee cords around the bottom to prevent this from happening again. Read Less

I saw in one review where the homeowner in Florida had installed it outside and had cut a plastic garbage can to put over it upside down to protect it from the sun. Naturally, in colder environments you'd need to consider the temperature aspect. It'd work to put it in a pit (since earth temperature coming UP is basically 55 degrees) and cover it good with insulation to keep it from freezing. I've considered digging a pit near my well head even after 18 years to take care of this matter. Just have to use your gray matter regarding running electric to it also, AND consider that you're going to have to check the salt level at least occasionally. Thus you'd need to consider the accessibility. Read Less

Answer: 
I would shelter it within a cabinet depending upon your climate. It is made of plastic (like all the others) and UV rays will discolor the display panel.. If you live in a freeze prone area then a small space heating device will protect it within a closed area.
I live in Central Texas and mine is located in a screened back porch.

BUYER BEWARE...replaced a 13 year old water boss 700 and was pleased with its performance...due to its size and not many places to put it in a bi level I went with new model 700...first if you are a previous owner who plumbed it with unions for quick removal you are in for a surprise. You will have to redo your plumbing as the new unit has different bypass valve assembly....now for the biggest surprise...our old unit was set at 35 which is about in the middle on the controller digital display and provided 500 gallons of soft water till it regenerated...the numbers on the controller range from 3 up to 70 for you to adjust for hardness...water softness was perfect.
NOW WITH THE NEW UNIT...if set it at 35 I only get 100 gallons in high efficiency or 200 gallons in high capacity...why even have programing up to 70 if I set it at 40 I have 00 gallons remaining...the thing is constantly regenerating...called customer support 3 times...each time they said that is the way the controller is programed now...last I spoke to the famous RICK...the supervisor...told him my issue and he could care less about it...he remained silent most of the time and did not have an answer to any of my questions...my biggest concern was wear & tear from regenerating so often...why is this man supervisor there...didn't seem to have a care in the world...told him I was going to return it...he said go ahead & hung up.
PLEASE READ the horror stories ONLINE of others dealing with them before you purchase a water boss...shame we really loved our previous unit...I saved our old controller and using it on the new model 700...perfect now & running just like the old unit...500 gallons till regeneration..the new Computer Controllers are FLAWED & programed wrong...and you will experience the same issue as me...but don't expect them to send you a new one...and last I'm not a dummy...mechanical/electrical tech by trade.

The short answer is when it needs to. There are a few factors that determine how often a water softener will regenerate:
1. How much hardness/iron is in your incoming water
2. How much water your household uses

The short answer is when it needs to. There are a few factors that determine how often a water softener will regenerate:
1. How much hardness/iron is in your incoming water
2. How much water your household uses
So if you have a large household and really nasty incoming water your softener will regenerate more often than a smaller household with less nasty incoming water. In general, a water softener will regenerate every 2-6 days. Mine goes every 4 days but I have the 900 unit.
Just a random bit of info...part of the reason I chose the Waterboss 900 is because it will automatically find the most efficient water & salt usage for regeneration. In other words, because it is metering the water I use the unit is programmed to regenerate at such an interval as to use the most minimal amount of salt and water. I figured spend a little extra on the front end to save more over the life of the unit. Read Less

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 93 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! I am very pleased with this water softener. I've only had it for 7 months but it works very well. I have it on a private well and it is plumbed after a Dupont whole house, carbon filter. Plumbing was a bit tricky, but that's because I installed it in a crawlspace. Other than that, standard plumbing fittings and a few sharkbite fittings later- I'm in business. My water is high in calcium but not particularly hard or soft. Salt use is negligible and (most importantly) it softens my water. I can't speak to the longevity but so far, it's great. June 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Automatic Water Softener Easy to install, use and maintain. Works as advertised. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First time water softener purchase! So far I have not had any problems with the unit.. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Is this softener supposed to work this good?! We purchased the Water Boss 700 after a lot of research. We have a slow well and the old softener ran us out of water whenever it cycled. Our Water Boss uses less than 18gal of water and 2.5lbs salt per cycle. We also have frequent power outages and the Water Boss maintains it's settings without having to be reprogrammed. I've also noticed the water has a consistent "softness" in between rejuvenation cycles. Great American made product! April 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by have had 4 softeners. this by far the worst one ever. have had the water boss in my home for 9 months and hasn't used not 1 cup of salt. water feels terrible and regenerates every day but nothing seems to change. called costomer support twice, the last time she was real snooty. dont buy this one. david christiansen beaver, utah April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works just as good as the one I bought 15 yrs ago. replacing the one I bought 15 yrs ago. a little smaller than the last which is fine. after reviewing various other makes/models kept coming back to this one. April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent customer service Prior to buying, I contacted WaterBoss by email to clarify which model I needed. The response was fast and answered my questions point on point. I made the purchase and installed the unit without any problems. Easily connected and programmed the first time through. The low profile of the unit makes it easy to load the salt. Has been working fine for two weeks. April 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice small foot print softener The softener arrived in good condition quickly. I unpacked it, read the installation manual, connected the water lines, added salt, ran a regeneration cycle, and had soft water. Nice small unit, easy to connect. March 29, 2016
