throgmartin Posted March 4 Share Posted March 4 I rarely jump on here and tout a product but wanted to post my experience with a new softener I bought for my coach. I wanted some experience with it first before posting about it and now have 2 regeneration cycles I have gone through so can comment now with more info. The softener is a - Pro-Aqua 16,000 grain unit. The build quality is very good but what I like about it is the regeneration process. It is the easiest one I have ever experienced and I have owned 2 softeners prior to this one ( On-The-Go & Essential ). I hated unscrewing the top cap and feeding table salt down through the top ( while poking clogged salt down the throat ). With the Pro-Aqua you simply remove the pre-filter, dump 2 - 1lb containers of table salt into the cartridge filter canister, screw the top on and adjust the flow. Very simple. The nice thing is being able to see when all the salt has dissolved. I do encourage those who buy it to spend the extra $ 50 and get the regeneration kit. It makes things even easier. I am so impressed that I am buying a second one to be used for washing coaches at the shop in addition to my private vehicles, Farm Tractor and Kubota RTV. Florida water is notoriously hard, loaded with calcium which impacts everything from water heaters to faucet screens and spray nozzles. I also despise the spots it leaves on vehicles, windows, etc. , which really sends my OCD into over drive. Like I have done with all of my softeners, I will pickup some hardness test strips from a pool supply store and test the water coming out of the softener periodically which will more accurately tell me when I need to regenerate. Just wanted to post this in case someone is considering a new RV softener. Here is the Pro-Aqua unit: https://www.amazon.com/PRO-AQUA-Pre-Filled-high-Capacity-connectors/dp/B079N2L7L6/ref=pd_lutyp_d_sim_sccl_3_2/142-7237555-6326956?pd_rd_w=8BJqK&content-id=amzn1.sym.47380f6c-b66a-4c76-8776-af610be1f13d&pf_rd_p=47380f6c-b66a-4c76-8776-af610be1f13d&pf_rd_r=EC6176A4EHD9K09FFDXF&pd_rd_wg=2lC2w&pd_rd_r=1be3bd84-2d53-4b68-a3da-bb0f252c6edc&pd_rd_i=B079N2L7L6&th=1 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
