Water Softener Confusion - Evolve Series?
I've searched this forum, met with our local water guy but still don't feel super informed to make a good decision. I'm hoping the collective wisdom here can help.
2000 sf ranch, 2 bathroom with 2 people living here now.
All plumbing is in place so replacement would be straightforward.
*these are over the acceptable limits - arsenic should be under .010; manganese should be .05 or less
Everything else really is within limits
We met with the local water company and they sell Evolve Series made by Water Right in WI. I can't find much about this softener or company here or else where. He has recommended EV2-1054 with a crystal media. 20 year expected life span, single tank, 90 day history of water use with adjustment every 3 weeks for backwash timing on demand, uses a Clack valve. Price: $3251.
They also sell a model EVR 1054 for $2619. Main difference is it's a resin media and they expect a life of 12-15 years.
The pricing seems high to me. Has anyone heard of or had experience with these products? Other products you might recommend? I think we will get a Kinectico quote as well.
We like that it's made in the US and it's through our local company but don't want to be over buying either. Appreciate any help you can offer.
