After doing my own research on water systems, I was surprised at how much Ilearned from Todd. I thought I knew everything about how the system cleaned. This system is leagues more advanced than the rest. Saves water, loads of salt, cleanes with soft water rather than hard.So many pluses. All around great experience and love this system. Really don’t know how I will act to have clean hair, clothes and no more orange tub, sink or toilet. If you have yucky water, you really need this system.
