Re: budgetwater.com <-- Does anyone have experience info?
1) Does anyone have an experience or information regarding Budget Water and there products?
2) Is a twin tank unit the 'best' for residential use? (We have four in our family)
3) Timer versus Demand systems. If salt is inexpensive, is there any other advantages/disadvantages of timer vs demand?
4) How often do RO filters need to be changed, and what is the average cost?
5) Will a water conditioner (activated charcoal, I believe) remove manganese?
6) What is the useable lifetime of the resin in a softener?
7) Is counter-current regeneration the same as backflushing, and how important a feature is this?
8) Recommendations on units.
1 - 19 years in the H2O industry and I have never come across this company.
2 - Twin tanks are a waste of money 99.9% of the time.
3 - Hybrid metered systems are by far the best and most efficient.
4 - It depends, yearly on the pre and post and ever 36 months on the membrane.
5 - Carbon will not remove manganese, resin will.
6 - It depends, resin can last indefinitely.
7 - "Counter-Current" sounds like a slick marketing way to say backwash.
8 - My recommendations:
ECOWATER ERR 3500 WATER REFINER
This is a super efficient computerized softener with carbon.
ECOWATER ERO R450E DRINKING WATER SYSTEM
