    This was a splurge for me but I went ahead and pulled the trigger. I will report it works as advertised. I am amazed and depending on how long the resin lasts, it might be golden. Rinse through the unit and no drying. It is expensive so that is why I wrote splurge but for me, but it is well worth the $$$. Just wanted to share. Please ask me any questions. I'm no expert but willing to share my experiences. Thanks

    How often do you change the resin? Also, I bought the conversion kit where you toss the filters and just fill the blue tubes with resin which allows you to fill more resin and it is a more efficient systems to it last longer. I haven't used it yet but will post reply later on my impressions.

    So do you wash and rinse thru the unit - or just rinse thru the unit?

    I have quick disconnects on my pressure washer snd the water supply...a T connector actually. I only run the rinse cycle through the CR Spotless. I guess you could be more careless if you did everything through the CR but that would cost me more than I’m willing to pay.

    The same company, CR Spotless, now also sells a "Double Chuck" system rated for 400 gallons (msrp $400) , compared to their DIC-20 (300 gal, msrp $430).
    https://crspotless.com/product/double-chuck-dark-blue/

    I take all these gallon capacities with a grain of salt, it is so dependent on your water supply's TDS (total dissolved solids). At the very highest TDS (~1000 ppm) I've been reading you may only get 70-80 gal thru a DIC-20 ! :-(

    My town's water supply is an average 80:20 mix of surface water (380 ppm) and ground water (890 ppm). But in any given month or month, there's no way to know what I'm getting ... it suppsoedly changes seasonally , maybe even more often.

    I like having the meter. I rinsed 4 times and still reading 0.0

    You need to watch the meter on the unit as it counts down on the resin efficiency. I have had mine for about a year and it hasn't started counting down yet with resin efficiency. So, can't say for sure how long the resin will last. Depends on often you use it. I think they also have an exchange program on the cannisters and resin which I will probably use when it comes time to replace the resin.

    This is at the top of my wish list. I need this thing pretty bad. I’d order it now, but she’s sitting right next to me.....

    Wow. Glad we have soft water here as I’d hate to have to purchase this thing $$$. Pretty cool set up, though.

    I’ll add I picked up an adapter that allows me to do away with the cartridges and just fill up the blue tubes. Holds more resin and can purchase just the resin so should be more cost effective. I haven’t installed the adapter yet as I thought I would just use the cartridges to establish somewhat of a baseline.
