Kinetico Mach 2030 vs. 2040
Looking for help determining which one is the better fit for me (building a new house in a sub-division). My water hardness was rated at 19, the iron level was ok and all else ok (we are on city water). At first glance both models look pretty similar, with the 2040 possibly being more economical (at least that is the sales twist on it). I am not sure if it is since it needs to regenerate twice as fast as the 2030 and with that the difference between the two seems pretty small. The 2030 is $200 less and seems to have been around a little longer and have better proven technology (normal sized resin?) so I am leaning that way. Anyone help from people who know about these models I would appreciate your input.
Please don't try to convince me not to buy a Kinetico, I have already decided I am buying one of these two models as I am tired of having problems with "standard" water softeners.
