Waterboss 900 Review
The Waterboss 900 is an efficient and easy to use water softening system that can treat up to 90 grains per gallon. At the same time, the system can also help reduce the ferrous iron levels in your water to 10 ppm. It also removes sediment and dirt, so you’re left with fresh, clean water.
One feature that you’ll love about this water softening system is the built-in, self-cleaning filter. You’ll never have to change cartridges again.
The 900 doesn’t require a lot of salt to regenerate either. During each regeneration period, this system uses just 6 pounds of salt and 27 gallons of water. The entire process takes less than 40 minutes, so you’ll always have soft water available.
With a 34,400 grain capacity, this is the perfect system for large households. And within a 10 GPM water flow rate and a minimal 15 psi drop, you’ll barely notice a drop in your water pressure. When taking a shower or using your appliances, you’ll still enjoy the same great water pressure you were used to.
If you’re worried about installation, don’t be. The 900 is easy to install. Waterboss includes a DIY installation DVD which makes it so easy to install the system into your home. It took us just a few hours to get the system up and running. It doesn’t take up much space either. The 900 is just 14.75 inches wide and 30.75 inches tall. It’s a bit heavy, though, and 105 pounds.
The 900 is a programmable water softening system, which means that you will decide when regeneration will take place. This is not an on-demand system, which is a little disappointing. That said, if you have consistent water usage, you can program this machine properly to ensure that you always have soft water available.

- Also reduces clear water iron
- Ideal for large households
- Quick regeneration

- Lack of customer support
Although we did not have to contact Waterboss, there were a few buyers that were disappointed by the company’s lack of customer support. Some said that customer service representatives were rude and condescending.
Overall, the Waterboss 900 is an efficient and highly effective whole house water softening system. With a high grain capacity, quick regeneration time, and efficient use of water and salt, this is the ideal water softening system for large homes with high water demands and high hardness levels.
