Great product

Pros: size, features, price
Cons: instructions
"This is a compact unit that is only intended for low water volumes and water that isn't too bad. We wanted it to clean up the well water that would only feed a new reverse osmosis system. It has lots of features for the price and the fact it has a demand initiated regeneration is great. It was easy to install but the instruction manual is awful. If you need a small water softener this is a great unit that is priced right."

little gem

Pros: small but practical, value
"we purchased this Gem as we are currently living in a 1 bedroom suite and we were getting discoloration on the shower and toilet from minerals in our water. We have had this little baby softener for 2 weeks now and have noticed a big change in the softness of our water and no more discoloration :) We like it so much we have ordered the big Vitapur Softener from Greenway Home Products for our new home."
