I'm looking for opinions on iron removal and softening systems. We currently have a culligan system. It uses way too much water to regenerate and has been high maintenance. Thanks in advance!

Hellenbrand water softener/conditioner Has a programmable head that only regenerates the system based upon water usage. Very reliable system as well.

Recommend Kinetico. Dad sold and installed them back in the late 70's and 80's most are still running today. They are more pricey today. They use no electricity.

I just put in one from fleet farm. It is made by waterite out of Appleton,Wis.
Very easy to install and super customer service. I called and talked to the service guy before I bought one with some questions. Then I bought one and called him back on friday about 4:30 . I had my water test numbers and wanted him to tell me how often it should back flush and set that part up. He called me back at 4:58 and told me what to do. He said he wasn't gonna let me hang on a Friday night! My iron count was 1 below what fleet farm could test to. I flushed my lines for about an hour and I HAVE CLEAN WATER!!! I flushed my lines because I bypassed the filter while I was hooking it up and when I took the old cartridge filter out it blew all that rust through my plumbing. I am very happy with this filter. It looks like a gas tank you use on a welder.
