Softener and Filter - Need advice

First of all, should like to say I understand how some might not enjoy giving product advice, however, I think of it as help to fellow member on a significant investment and an honest evaluation is sincerely requested.

We are definitely ready to purchase a water softener and are looking at one that also provides filtration.

The one we're considering is the Pure Tech 3000 for $899 (on sale for $849 now) for whole house well water who offers it new on EBAY. ( ----search----water softener)

I think they also charge about $100 for a metering device to control backwashing depending on usage rather than timed event.

Would appreciate some expert opinion if the price/function is reasonable and if the product is known to have quality and reliability.

Its a lot of money, but we're looking for a good quality long term hassle free product.

Will greatly appreciate your opinions.

Contact the plumbers in your area that have good knowledge of your product that you are interested in and see what thier opinion is.

I personally do not have any opinion on this product since I have not installed it before. Make sure that the person you talk to has.

I agree with DUNBAR PLUMBER that it would be better to purchase a softener that can be serviced locally.
