Should have had one years ago

"Live in a hard water area and always had a problem with scale deposits. Over the last year we have noticed that the scale was starting to have a red tint.
After spending several thousand on a new bathroom I wasn't prepared to suffer this any longer.
This system is good value, there isn't a noticeable drop in pressure and flow. The polyphosphate is food grade but you can taste a slight difference. Not a problem if you fit a cheap filter tap to your kitchen sink. The instructions do state that it is recommended that drinking water is taken off before the filter. In my house impossible.
The only downside, is that I have it fitted in a cellar and because of the size of it I was getting a lot of condensation on it. It is now fully insulated and no more problems."

Water cleaner

"I've had this for four years, change the micofilter when necessar, and have had no problems.
I have water form a bore hole and this makes such a difference to the clearity, after the sand filters that we have on line.
Water then goes through a proper water softner and this has meant that this unit has been working absolutley perfectly.
A cheap system that is easy to maintain.

misinformation

"oddjob01's suggestion that this has got anything to do with salt is total rubbish.
Salt is used in large water softeners with ion exchange resins to remove calcium and magnesium, and only to regenerate.
The scale reduction chemical is sodium polyphoshate which mops up the calcium - if you want to remove tastes get a carbon filter-if you want to remove metals, get a resin based cartridge. I wouldn't drink polyphosphate even if it is food grade.
Incidentally, NPT is the American standard for pipe threads and is completely different to BSP - the only threads to will interchange are 1/8 NPT and 1/8 BSP - anything bigger won't. You wn't stand a chance with 3/4" NPT and don't bother asking the plumber's merchant for an adaptor.

Not happy

"It has lasted me a couple of years.. i note they have changed the design very slightly.. my present unit has just failed. Found water squirting out of the plastic right at the bottom.. a tiny hole has appeared and this has been going on for quite some time without me knowing about it. Means purchasing another unit or having no water. Am very annoyed!"

2-Stage Whole House Scale Redu
13 Mar 2010
By oddjob01

"This basically a water softner using a simple filter and a sodium filter. It does not remove the majority of pollutants but removes sediment and scale. The replacement filter seems very expensive considering it is salt, you could unscrew the bottom of it and replace the salt yourself at a fraction of the cost. it cannot be used for drinking because of the salt and has to be fitted to the pipes after the drinking water connection. I did ask Culligan for advice but they never replied to my mail, I discovered how useless it was to me after buying and returning to the store.
1 star for performance and reliabilty is not my opinion it had to be entered because the system needed a score to let me post this comment.
