SO! You installed a couple of Housetrons (in 2012, I believe). The guy at my plumbing supply house swears these work, as he has sold several. Do you have any feedback from your installations? Sure would be nice to be able to install pre-filters, a carbon filter (to remove chlorine, etc), and a Housetron (for softening) and not have to fool with 40 lb. bags of salt!!! If you have some input on whether or not the Housetron softens hard water, I'm sure many of us would be interested to know your opinion!

You can install filters all day long (even carbon) but, if the customer has hard water, they will still get the calcium build up in their water heater and faucets. Filters are designed to improve taste, color and odor. The ONLY way to remove hard water is a properly installed softener.

There have been hundreds of "descaling" products come and go over the years but they never stay on the market because they do not actually remove the calcium.

The guy who sells them swears they work . . . yeah, I'm sold.

I would be interested in hearing feedback from customers / plumbers where they have been installed over a long period of time before offering to our customers.

Cutting edge products seem to go one of two ways:

1. GREAT- everyone ends up jumping in

or

2. EPIC FAIL!

I prefer middle ground where the customer is not used as a 'test' case.

Every decade or so a new product like this comes out.

Talking

they are a joke.... the results you will see from this will be all smoke and mirrors, like they think it seems to be better water.......

and the way they get sold is everyone who buys one gets a 150 rebate if they lie and refer their freinds and relatives to get one



On another note the thing sort of looks like a bong pipe of some nature...
