Advanced Water Filters

Tony asked:
I live in California and will be moving to a new house next week. I’ve been reading a lot about saltless conditioners and is leaning towards buying a system from www.Advancedwaterfiltration.net.   They claim a 99.6% effectiveness against scaling which is my main reason for wanting a conditioner. Are you aware of this company? I appreciate your response. Also, if I purchase green wave 12 gpm system, what is the cost of the replacement media? And how often is it generally replaced?
The Water Doctor Replied:
  1. 99.6%?  Pretty good!   Why not 107.3%?  The only company who claims 99.6% effectiveness is nextScaleStop and they no longer use that media which as "allegedly" validated at 99.6% effectiveness by DVGW-512.  In fact, I believe they now use the same media we have been using.
  2. The advanced water filters site is very devoid of any information as to how it works.  Frankly, the lack of information on their site make me very suspicious of the product.  There is very little information.
  3. Check them our with the BBB as you would any company.
  4. The GreenWave media needs replaced very 4-6 years.  If it needs replaced in years 4 or 5, it will be $189.00.  After year 5, it would be $356.00.
Be careful!  Things that sound too good to be true, might be!
