Gary, I have read all your posts and have no DESIRE whatsoever to bicker back and forth with you like you do with ANDY on what systems are the best! I service ALL systems! I carry the exact system that is a Kenmore, GE, Whirlpool, and Northstar.....It is called EcoPure 6130 and i sell them installed with tax out the door and filled with salt for $895-$995.
Notice how it is called ECOPURE AND NOT ECOWATER........ITS AN OFF BRAND! i dont sell very many because they break too much and i dont need to develop a REPUTATION for selling a PIECE OF S**T! They are only for shoppers! IF SOMEONE CALLS MY DEALERSHIP LOOKIN FOR "A BALLPARK" I SAY OUR SYSTEMS START AT $695 BUT WE HAVE OVER 30 PIECES OF EQUIPMENT AND "HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT SYSTEM IS BEST FOR YOU?" I WOULDNT BE DOING MY JOB IF I DIDNT GO OUT AND ACTUALLY TEST THE WATER AND RECOMMEND A SYSTEM FOR THAT PARTICULAR WATER CONDITION.......SIZE OF FAMILY AND TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR PLUMBING!
As you should know that EcoWater is the WORLDS LARGEST MANUFACTURER OF RESIDENTIAL WATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS....or maybe you didnt.........they manufacture 1 out of every 3 softeners sold in the US and 1 out of every 4 in the world! Warren Buffett would have never bought the company if it didnt make MONEY!
I sell the ERR 3502 Refiner (LIFETIME WARRANTY ON THE RESIN AND CARBON...FROM ECOWATER NOT FROM ME) installed w/tax filled with salt and include the PERFECT 10 WARRANTY UPGRADE and 1yr free salt delivery for $3495.....It has a ................ONE OF A KIND................DUAL ROTOR VALVE and it is not ceramic like i have read on here.......ASIDE FROM A MOTOR(WHICH IS THE SAME SIZE MOTOR ON A FLECK 3900 INDUSTRIAL VALVE AND A MICRO SWITCH IT ONLY HAS 2 MOVING PARTS! UNLIKE A KINETICO THAT HAS LIKE 50 PARTS INSIDE THE VALVE AND IS LIKE TAKIN APART A WRIST WATCH! ).............. YOU NEED NO TOOLS TO WORK ON AN ECOWATER3500 SERIES VALVE! It has 2 teflon coated disks inside and is 1inch full flow.........BOTTOM LINE IT USES the least amount of SALT in the industry! Im sure you can agree with me that IDIOTS are wanting to buy these SALT FREE systems WHICH are NOT SOFTENERS ( BECAUSE THEY USE NO SALT) but in fact are supposed to reduce SCALE! THEY SHOULD NOT BE ADVERTISED AS SOFTENERS! I have many customers who call me sayin they do not work and after 5YRS they need to be RE-BEDDED with SCALE net media and new CARBON! MY COST ON THE SCALE NET MEDIA IS $100 per liter and it requires typically 3 litres and 1.5 cubes of carbon and with labor adds up to about $900-$1000 and the SALESMAN WHO SOLD IT NEVER INFORNED THE CUSTOMER OF THIS.
As far as a private well...........here in florida we use a FULL CHLORINATION SYSTEM with Flow switch.....120 gal retention tank....SOLUTION TANK......INJECTION PUMP.......UNIDOSE OR STENNER or PELLETT FEEDER.....1.5 cubes of carbon and a softener. ONLY IF THERE IS A TON OF IRON 10parts.....BACTERIAL IRON......HYDROGEN SULFIDE!
If there is minimal iron and h2s than we can use EcoWater's 2100 series IRON FILTER with pyrolux and carbon in it!
ALWAYS SELL YOUR CUSTOMER A RES-UP FEEDER AND A GALLON OF RES-UP REGARDLESS IF IT IS WELL OR CITY WATER! THEY WILL KEEP IN CONTACT WITH YOU MORE OFTEN WHEN "THEY RUN OUT OF THAT BLUE STUFF"
I SELL ECOWATER BECAUSE ITS MADE IN THE USA AND CARRIES THE BEST WARRANTY.....A (FACTORY WARRANTY). IT GENERATES THE LEAST AMOUNT OF SERVICE CALLS AND USES THE LEAST AMOUNT OF SALT!!!!!!.....IF ONE OF MY CUSTOMERS NEEDS A PART......I CALL THE FACTORY AND ITS MAILED TO ME THAT DAY! I DO CARRY MOST PART SO THAT ISNT ALWAYS NECESSARY.
What do you sell? WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I do like the Clack WS-1 or fleck 7000 OR 5600 for those "shoppers" wating a "CHEAP" price.......I dont care what it is.......i can fix it!
One wise thing I have read on a forum is that" you pay more for warranty than on product"...................THAT IS SOOOOOOOOOOOO TRUE!!!!!
Everyone wants the "lowest prices" but "GOOD THIGS ARENT CHEAP AND CHEAP THINGS ARE USUALLY NO GOOD"!
BUYING A SYSTEM ON THE INTERNET IS A GOOD WAY TO GET "STUCK" WITH A PRODUCT WITH NO INSTALLATION OR SERVICE OR WARRANTY AND PARTS!
As long as you stay busy in this business then you are making a living and thats what its all about!!!!!!
