    Well Water Systems

    Hi all, I am looking for advice on Well water Systems. We currently have an old system, that uses salt, a nasty aerator tank, etc. We are looking to upgrade to a new system ASAP. We want the best available, long-lasting, and low maintenance. Looking into salt-free systems. Ive heard about Aquasana Rhino, Pelican, Kinetico and a few others. But I dont truly know how good they are. If anyone can give me some insight, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

    Water Right makes some quality equipment. Most important thing is to know what is in your water so you know how to treat it. My old house I had string filters iron filters and water softeners with iron removing salt. New home just a softener. Also if you are looking for a drinking water system try "Free Drinking waters" website quality RO systems on there

    We just spoke to a rep from Pelican and they were talking about some combo system.. basically a carbon filtration system that removes contaminants and also gives you drinking water from pretty much any water source in the house. But that one costs a pretty penny..

    I had a system from Pure Water Inc, It used Pentair tanks, Fleck BW valves made of bronze. It went through a chlorinator, then a synthetic carbon filter, then a softener, then a 7 layer media filter then to the house, I installed it and forgot it, they said the synthetic carbon never needs replacing and after 14 years of use it would remove all chlorine when I shocked the wells, I had to put the system in bypass to get chlorine to the house. I sold the property and the info about it with the user manuals stayed with it, I will google the system and get the info and post it. If im not mistaken the system cost me 2500.00 delivered and was worth every penny, my well water was cloudy without it.
    I'm curious about your aerator, does your water have sulfur in it? mine did and I put a bubbler in the holding tank to remove the gas and the filter would remove the mineral.

    I like the Kinetico, it regenerates when a set number of gallons goes through it, whereas the ones on a timer regenerated whether it needs to or not.

    Hope this helps

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Have the Salt free,no electricity,Pelican Combo system in my house. The Carbon filter helps with taste,have to replace every 5 years,no biggie. The second tank supposed to help the hardness.Haven't had any plumbing issues with the pipes. Didn't want a backwash and drain system,no room,and my septic wouldn't except it. So that's what I went with.
