No idea what unit to get
When I bought this unit I had no idea what size to get. I just noticed the product selection tool and should have used that to figure out what to buy. Turns out I should have bought the s38. Oh well I'll give this to my kid since she lives in an apartment
Got rif of my water softener and installed this on my condo. So far it seems to be keeping scale a reduced level. Happy with the results so far.
Tried this out on my apartment 6 months ago. Scale still appears now and then but its soft and easy to wipe up
First 3 months
So far I'm happy with the results. Hard water crust on the faucet and water heater has dissapeared. I did add a shower head filter to help with impurities.
Easy install and seems t be working
I just finished installing this product. It's super easy to install so when it comes to installation this product gets 5 stars. I can't tell yet if it's working so I will come back in a few months and update my review. For now, I can only give it 4 stars until I run it for a few months. So far so good.

Perfect for my apartment
I live in a small studio apartment and we have terrible water. I installed this unit 3 months ago. It was nice to see it start working immediately. All the issues I was having because of the hard water went away. I'm so glad it worked because I really didn't want to use salt to make the water hardness manageable.

Tankless Water Heater
I'm not the most mechanically inclined person and I'm not comfortable taking apart my tankless water heater to clean it. We have very hard well water at my house and I was having to get my tankless water heater professionally cleaned every 6 months. So I decided to buy one of these units 3 months ago I've periodically inspected it every month and so far no scale at all!

Perfect for my RV
Installed on my RV. It worked great! Now I don't have to worry about the hard water messing up my RV appliances. Great investment and a better option compared to the "go" water softener.
