Questions & Answers

How hard is it to maintain?

Asked by: Lori
Is maintenance free until it breaks down every few months. They send you the parts to fix yourself, and that is a challenge. Nice machine, but definitely has not been dependable.

Can this be mounted outdoors?

Asked by: fishing123
My is in my basement. However, I have a friend who lives in Florida. He purchased a Waterboss and decided he wanted his to sit outside. Just had it sitting on top of a small concrete pad. To prevent any lizards, etc from getting into the salt storage area he decided to buy a grill cover to put over the Waterboss and used bungees to 'seal' the grill cover at the bottom of the unit. To state the obvious, do not put it outdoors if your temperatures drop below freezing. Water is inside of the tank. When water freezes it expands. Thus, if you put the unit in sub-freezing temperatures it is possible that you could crack your tank.

We had this brand in our former home for 20 years and had no problems at all with it - that is why we chose to replace the per-exisiting softener in our new-to-us home with a Waterboss - only one we want to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am actually buying the same unit for the 3rd time, for the same house, within about 12 years. ... I am actually buying the same unit for the 3rd time, for the same house, within about 12 years. I live in swampy Florida and the unit is stored in the garage. Heat can be a factor here in Florida. My experience is the first 2 units first seemed to function just fine for about 2 or 3 years. Then the regeneration doesn't seem to work right. You can tell that by either the tank gets too much water in it and/or the salt just seems to last forever. What's happening is salt is not being used to clean the grains. Then I got another 2 to 3 years of poor performance until the inner water tank failed. Warranty says the tank is covered for 10 years but you have to pay shipping and send it in - ya right! Worthless warranty for this. First unit tank cracked at the seam and made a huge water mess because I didn't realize it for hours. I learned from this and made the area more water resistant for the next time. This second time I caught it as it just started to crack to where I'm getting a very fine spout of spray constantly coming out. So I turned the bypass valve to bypass and now I'm buying my third unit. It's very easy to replace - basically just undue the two threaded connectors from the old unit and put them on the new unit. I figure the price is fair given the circumstances and it really is good on low salt usage - especially after it stops using salt haha. Remember Florida is really hot and I don't know if other, even really expensive units would do much better. I've read a lot of reviews on this unit and I seem to be the only one that had problems with the inner tank simply busting open. Maybe I'm the only one in Florida that owns one - doubt it. Maybe I just got two lemon inner tanks in a row. In any case for another $500 I'll be good to go with soft water for at least another 2 to 3 years.

That was the easy part. I have owned this water softener for 14 months. In that time I have had to repair it 3 times. Every 4 months or so, after the machine does one of its routine regeneration cycles, stops working and I get error messages. After a call to their 1800 number they run me thru several tests and it is always the same problem...the drive end cap (kind of like the machines piston) has failed. They will mail you the part, and you have to replace it yourself. Last week was my 3rd time doing this. It's not the easiest diy project, but I have become skilled at it now. However, I shouldn't have to fix this relatively new water softener every few months. It is frustrating and inconvenient. This last time was my last. Parts are poor quality. Do not waste your money or patience!!

We had our previous model for well water with iron removal for six years and never had an issue. We sold that home and built a new one in the city, we installed our new Waterboss the first week. The water was noticeably softer and the chlorine smell wasn't present any longer. So far this model has proven to be as great as our first.

Sounds like initial quality may be an issue. I guess I got a good 1. I did have a plumber install mine because I wanted an external bypass valve. i didn't think the plastic handle on the unit looked strong enough. I soften all the water in the house, but bypass it when I water the lawn. No big deal, I just flip the valve. This is my third water softener in 40 years. The first was an overpriced Culligan that seemed to do the same job as the Waterboss , but at 4 times the price. My first Waterboss lasted 15 years, and then it had a leak during the regen process. I could have replaced the top...but decided to replace the whole unit since it was so old. I'm happy, and would buy another 1.

Instruction manual is not accurate though, must watch the video. Several contradicting instructions in the manual. The 950 does NOT hold 170 pounds of salt though. Only about 100. When asked, customer care said "that is because the tank is inside". Well, no kidding! Have only had it two weeks and so far very happy with it.
