The Kinetico softener made our water feel slimy, and we did not like the way our hair of skin felt. Rust was really our main problem, and we liked the idea of using a dedicated iron filter instead of a softener. The Hellenbrand Iron Curtain works great – our water is totally rust-free and we don’t have to use salt. Your company is very easy to work with – no hard sell. We were able to make our decision on our own timetable.
