Ionics home water system treatment opinion

I have been thinking of getting this system installed in my home and was wondering what your opinions of this system is. The system includes a softer and whole house filter system. Also included is a reverse osmosis system for the drinking water which would be connected to the frig icemaker, frig and kitchen sink drinking water faucets. Thank you for your opinions and advice.

Have you really stopped to consider what all the benefits of all this $$$ system are costing? Soft water is nice in many really hard water communities, but many peole come to dislike the slimy showers that soft water produces. Filtration is a joke, really. The particulates that may show up in water have never been shown to cause harm to anyone that I am aware of. Do you think that filtered water will give your poop a better flush? The vast majority of people can't tell the differance between Evian and municipal water supplies. so why not put the money on your mortagage principle and take a nice vacation trip to Monaco in a few years? Of course, I may be all wrong if you have some of the rare Western water sources like 'gyp water', so do more research and interview Culligan and others, too. Good luck.

That is quite an incorrect generalization. Before I started filtering for sediment, I'd have to change out the seal kits in my Delta faucets every 8 to 10 months. Once I put a filter in place, I've not had to change a single one.

Come on over and have a drink of the swampy tasting water our town gives us, then I'll give you some that has passed through the carbon filter. I know which one you'll want to drink as is, or in your tea, coffee, or bourbon.
I'm glad you have great water, but not all of us do. Ed
