Install went well. I had planned for this installation while building our new home. The Install took less than an hour and once it was burped I ran a regen cycle and that took about 2 hours. After a few days and getting the water heaters purged of hard water the system is working great. I have had this model of Softener in the past so there was no learning curve.
Very good on time, knowledge and price was great too. Not a question, I would recommend this company highly!
nice unit. works well, will continue to buy from this company, thanks.
This unit is awesome. It was easy to install and it has out performed the GE that I had by far.
