Thread: Water Treatment systems...
#1 Water Treatment systems...05-07-2013, 10:28 AM
Now living in Florida one of the things you have is hard/bad tasting water.
Personally I think the water is fine but SLW will disagree.
Another is companies trying to sell you systems to treat/filter it...
For years I have resisted talking to these people but last week I was in a good
mood and a nice lady called that sounded like my departed grandmother so I
listened to a "survey" that ended with a pitch to have a guy come out and
test our water. He was here yesterday and I give the kid an A+ for the
sales job. And no, we haven't bought anything. Yet.
I don't want to mention the system name yet but does anyone have a whole
house water treatment system, who puts it out, and what do you think
of it???? Would you recommend it or is it a POS???
PM me if you don't want to answer out in the open. Thanks!!

We are lucky in SE Michigan-the one thing the City of Detroit continues to do well is provide good quality drinking water to the region.

We have one on each house and would not try to live around here without one. The one in this house is a new brand and my wife is not all that excited about it. For her to drink the local water requires either the additional under-sink system or the fridge filtering. It does seem to do the job re: clothes, dishes and showers.
The older (1980? 81?) system has always been more than satisfactory in all phases of it's work. It was originally sold as a Rainsoft unit although the company name has multiplied and rotated regularly it's still the same folks supplying parts, labor and supplies. The unit is self contained in a single fiberglass 'box' sitting outside the washroom window. We did replace the large filter about 10 years ago. Right hand unit here.
The newer system (2010) came from Rayne systems and has three sections on the outside. The first one is there because our local water sand is very unconsolidated and we do get fines into the flow. One is the filter and one salt supply chamber. It does have an added "advantage" in that it does not recirculate until it's testing system says it needs to. And that may be the source of the water taste problem. The Rainsoft system does a flowback every xxx gallons. Here ya go.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
