In Aug'2014, we had the Kinetico Q850 water softener installed in our basement for whole-home softer water. It is now Jan'16. So far so good. We just had to change our filter for the water softener. It is "maintenance-free" other than having to re-fill the salt periodically. We don't seem to go through it that fast, which is good as the bags are heavy for me to bring home from the store (Wal-Mart). We had Aquareal change the filter for the water softener.
We also got the Kinetico K5GX reverse osmosis water system installed under our kitchen sink and also connected to our fridge's water line. The water does seems to be more purified. Our dog only drinks the purified water and not the normal water from the tap.

Looks like everybody in the house enjoys pure water. Thank you.
