Avantapure worthwhile?

We've had a sales guy out here (we're in Utah) really talking up the Avantapure. This business claims to sell the upper end Avantapure. Right now there's a slightly used (as in 30 days of use) model that he's willing to install free of charge with an RO system for $1895 total. I'm really not sure what to believe. I don't know a whole lot about water softeners yet. I know we have 10 grain hard water. The only specs I have on the unit are that it's 54,000 grain and has a 1" valve all through it. We have 5 people living here. Should we pass up on this?

Thanks for any info.

You can buy system on line, have it installed by a local person, and save money. The Avantapure is an electronic version of an Autotrol vale. I do not like electronics on water softeners. Have seen too many problems with them. I prefer the Fleck 5600 metered demand units.
