I have had a Culligan MGA94 (30K grain)water "conditioner" for appox 3
months. I went with the culligan because I was able to get them to install
the loop (difficult re-route for outside set-up) and a 3month no obligation
trial for a very minimal price.
When they came in they tested the hardness and it came out to be about 15-17
Grains. We are 2 adults in a 2 bath home(we only use one really) in Gilbert
The 3 month trail is about up and they monthly fee will go to 30+ a month. I
am looking to replace it (buy) but wonder...
The water really does not feel that "soft", I.I the slick feeling normally
associated with soft water isn't there. SOMETIMES you can feel it a bit,
but for the most part nothing feels different that before. I have called
culligan and they have assured me that the water is either "soft" or its
not, needless to say this did not seem right.
Culligan asked us to use the "tester" they left us which consists of a vial
and some soapy liquid to shake up with the water and it does "lather" better
than when they came in.
Shouldn't we be "feeling" the softness? This just doesn't seem to be
All that said, what are your thoughts on the all in one units available a
sears(Kenmore) any other suggestions( this we be outside in the AZ heat.
Thanks for your input
