We own a home in northern Minnesota. Specifically, in what is known as the iron range. Our well water came in at 26 PPM for iron. I purchased the platinum 10 system with hopes that it would be able to make a small difference in the function of our appliances and the quality of our water overall. We have had the system up and running for about 2 weeks now, and the results are unbelievable. Our toilets are no longer stained orange and our shower is back to a gleaming white. For the first time since I've lived in my home, I made macaroni and cheese and used The water out of the tap. My children did not know that the water used to cook their noodles was not from the store-bought gallons. I estimate we will save up words of $1,000 a year using this system for our family of five. In addition, the wear and tear on our appliances will be greatly reduced. We purchase a new water heater about every 2 to 3 years in our area due to build up and deterioration because of the high iron content. Hopefully, this will allow us to invest those dollars somewhere else in our home.
Purchased to replace a chemical injection pump and tank to handle a heavy hydrogen sulfide issue with my well water. The chemical injection worked but was a maintenance nightmare. This air injection unit was easy to install, worked to eliminate the rotten egg smell and is install and forget. I got my weekends back.
Not thrilled with this purchase. The instructions stated the unit might not come with gravel, so I installed it without gravel. 3 days later the gravel shows up. What a nightmare. AFW won't proivde any help other than advising me to suck out the Filox with a vaccuum and put the gravel in. If anyone else can help please contact me. --** this customer got the vortech tank, gravel is not needed with the vortech tank. We explained to the customer that we send it on all those systems anyway and there are 3 options, 1. use it without since the vortech tank does not require it. 2. put it in on top of the media, when it backwashes, it will settle to the bottom. 3. remove the media from the tank, then put gravel in and replace the media back into the tank.
After having a couple of local filtration companies give us a quote of over $4500. I spent a little time online researching to see if there was anything i could install myself. After talking to the AFW Techs and sending them my water test results we decided on the Platinum 10. We received our unit a couple of weeks ago. Shipping was very fast. The install was a piece of cake. For the first time since we have been in our new house we are able to drink our well water and take a bath without it leaving a ring in the tub.. This has to be one of the best investments we have ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn't do it a year ago when we moved in
Customer service is a 5
We have had our system in for 2.5 years and other than adjusting the schedule, we haven;t had to change anything or think about our system. It solved our rotten egg smell and and plumbing fixture staining issues we had. It worked so well we recommend it to others in our area.
Works great! Fast shipping!
I install the product several weeks ago and everything is been fantastic sense. The horrible rotten eggs think is gone for my water. I’ve tried all sorts of things in the past including a iron filter. But this error injection version really seems to do the trick to get rid of the sulfer smell!!
I bought this product a few months back knowing It would not be installed right away. It is now and the difference is awesome! Setup was done by my boyfriend who has installed a similar type system before. The backwash was our stumbling block. We live in snow country and it looked like our only option was to dig a ditch to run a hose. As we were clearing out the cellar someone discovered an unknown pipe which we tested and found ran to the outside ditch. We had resolution. The system has been up and running for a good month now. This product has given back clear fresh tasting water to our home. No more orange film and scaling on every fixture touched by water. I can boil water without residue forming. And the taste is heaven. I am so glad I ran across this product. Thank you!
