      Thank you for your help in my thread. Is there a specific online store you could recommend me to buy the fleck 5600sxt from?

      DH, we used to be your neighbor in Claremont. Great place to be, but, so is the hill ten miles out of a small Texas town where my wife and I retired to---population of the entire county is under 14,000. Nearest neighbor is over half-a-mile down the unpaved county road.

      would love to see your thoughts on my post from today. You seem to have all the info!

      Pentair 5800 LXT. I had a "friend" sell me the unit for my house and he made it sound so easy. I had a handyman install the unit, but he had no idea about how to program or even start the damned thing after installation. The manual is for people that actually know what they're doing and don't need step by step directions. I'm going crazy trying to find out information on the internet, nothing so far.

      The filter sumps on that unit arequestionable at best. I would recommend a USA made sump, the import sumps have been very problematic these past few years. I would know, we import nearly 500,000 per year, and the quality is not so good to say the least.

      I will have a USA made system available in a few weeks, the price should be similar to that price, but done with high end components. Call me in 2-3 weeks to discuss further. 951-801-9621

      I was reading up on a RO thread and you may have suggested a few good turn key residential RO systems to a fellow member. I was wondering if the brand aquapurion 5050p from us water systems is a safe unit. I don't want any leaks to occur down the road. Any suggestions? Thanks. Dan.

      Thanks for the reply. I assume from your comment about the Chemilizer being a fully self proportioning base on flow unit that I can install it after my pressure tank. Just curious - I also just read from http://4pureh2o.com/ who claim to have come up with the 400 pellet feeder that it should be installed after the pressure tank; is that because the dosage shot comes out proportional to pressure? The two good things about them is less floor space taken because there is no chlorine tank to adjust & maintain and they are very simple devices- easy to repair/maintain. As you can see I am having a difficult time deciding. I just want the one that is the most reliable and causes the least grief. Thanks Terry.

      Thw WQA is in Indianapolis in early April. We will ahve a large island there in the back near one of the aqua stages. We supply the majority of the companies that attend the show, but it is still important we attend to visit with many of the people that show there. go to www.wqa.org for full details. The chemilizer pmp is very simple and is fully self proportioning depending on flow rate. It is also very simple, reliable, and cheap. My brother works for a huge company (competitor and customer) and he has the same thoughts. We both like the pellet design, but we also both realize it has technical limitations that are overcome by the superior design of the chemilizer. And since I sell the pellet design system and not the chemilizer, I think I am fairly objective since I am recommending a design that I have no financial interest in.

      You recommended the non electric chlorine pump to take care of my Iron, manganese, & H2S. I think I prefer it to the pellet feeder. Pellets are pretty expensive. Also the chemilizer seems to be a proportional unit so I assume I can place it after my pressure tank and outside hose take off. I would like to avoid chlorinating water going to the outside hoses. Is that correct, can I install it after the pressure tank? Is this unit very loud, it will be in the basement under my kitchen and not too far from my bedroom? Also you mentioned the WQA trade show will be in Indianapolis; do you know the date? Thanks TAM (Terry)

      Where are you located?

      haha, yeah, the post was ridiculous. Your final post said what I was thinking the entire time. You were the smart one to finally say what needed to be said.

      It was not me that closed it officially (though I suspect my posts we're the reason) LOL
