I have a 3.5 bath house on city water ( i have 5 kids so probably high volume). Had a sales pitch from Rainsoft...and just knew it was BS at an exhorbitant price. Don't really trust their test results but here goes.....hardness = 7, nitrates = 5, chlorine present (duh!), Iron = 1.0.

i currently have no system and use the 5 gallon bottled water for drinking. Spend about $30 per month on bottles water.

can you give me any insignt into what sort of system would be appropriate and effective? I am not having any problems, just think i can do better than buying and hauling 5 gallon jugs.

Thanks Chris

@cksadler,
Do you want to be dependent on a local dealer for installation and service or install it yourself, or hire a plumber to do it, and fix it yourself?

The overwhelming majority of homeowners demand a local water quality
improvement company that sells, installs and services what they say.

Water quality improvement is best left to the local professionals.

@cksadler,
I would get more thorough testing done. Interesting that you have iron AND chlorine. With only 7 gpg, you can get a very high efficiency system and use very little salt over the years.

If you are spending $30 a month on bottled water...wow. You can do much better by getting a quality RO. No wasted bottles, no shopping, rarely would you run out, use it for plants, pets, steam irons, etc., that you don't use bottles for. Also, you have better control over quality; who knows where the bottled water comes from.
