- Easy to install
- Filters iron
- Uses less water than other softeners
- Support is lacking
When testing this unit, I did not have to contact support. But, many users have stated that support is lacking. Support is well below consumer standards, with many people stating that representatives have been rude on the phone.
Again, I did not experience this myself.
However, the company does offer a three-year warranty, which is honored by the company. Aside from these small complaints, consumers are very happy with the Waterboss. The unit does its job well and will softener water. And it doesn’t require cartridges or filter replacements like other units.
