    You may or may not be able to find an online retailer that offers what I recommend, but then again, I may be the only one packaging them this way. If I knew of another independent dealer like myself that was local to you, I would tell you, but I honestly don't know of any independent dealer that packages systems the way I do.

    Earlier this week I replaced a competitors filter with this over-sized Iron filter weighing in at just under 300 lbs. dry. It's on a well that feeds 3 homes.

    @Rex Kramer I live in NY which supposedly has some of the best water in the country from what Ive heard. I was on well water and moved into a house with city water. To me it has a strong chlorine smell and I am also concerned with fluoride (not sure if I should be I just heard bad things about it.

    Can you recommend an under the sink filter system to help with my issues? I don't think I can swing the cost of a whole house system at this time but to be honest I am not sure how much they run $$.

    I do have a filter on my shower head which seems to help.


    Edit, I just read about the Multipure Aquaversa, I will be ordering today. Thank you

    Hey Rex, I like to wash my car at home but the water is nasty and it's way too hot here. The water dries instantly on the vehicle and you're left with hard spots all over the vehicle Do these systems cover that kind of volume or are they meant for inside use only?

    Edit: and would that even help?

    A whole house water softener will help, but you really need deionized water for a clean spot free rinse. Deionizers are point of use filters, you do not drink the water or use it in the house - it's very aggressive.

    Hi Rex! I was just in the mechanical room and noticed this is the second one of these tanks this 20 year old house has had (old one is still sitting in the shed). What’s the life span and purpose of these air tanks on a water well system?

    That looks like a bladder / pressure tank.
