You never fully appreciate a good Iron Filter until you install one in your home.

Our customer in Antioch, IL had a Fleck 5600 water softener.  It did a good job of softening.  But it couldn’t take out all the rust, or the bad smell.

After 10 years, the softener was starting to break down.  Our client was ready for a “better solution”.  After shopping around, they chose a new Iron Filter and Water Softener from Garrelts Water.  Not only did we fix their water, but we did it with less water and salt waste too!

Bad Water + Old Technology = No Fun!

This family of 4 was going through 84 bags of salt a year.  Their old 5600 softener was also burning through about 24,000 gallons to regenerate.  The reason?  Bad water:

  1. 35 grains of hardness is 7x higher than the national average
  2. 4ppm iron is 12x over the staining limit, and increased salt use 31%
  3. Iron bacteria – no amount of salt can fix this.

Fortunately, we had a better solution.

The Right Tool for Every Job

The Iron Curtain Storm is quickly becoming one of our most popular products.

This system kills Iron Bacteria and stops rust problems without chemicals.  It does the heavy lifting so the softener can run more efficiently.

We installed a 48,000 grain E3 Water Softener.  It has more capacity, and regenerates with less water and salt.  This gave our customer a huge boost in efficiency:

  • 52% less salt
  • 64% less water waste

This savings is a great bonus.  Now our customers have clear water, no smell, and less maintenance!
