Overall, consumers are extremely satisfied with this portable water softener. Almost ninety percent of consumers who own this water softener give it a perfect rating and would recommend it to others.

These consumers state that the portable water softener works extremely effectively. It is simple and convenient to set up because it requires no tools to do, and it is easy to regenerate because it requires very little salt. What consumers like most about this portable water softener is how effectively it works.

There is only four percent of consumers who are less than satisfied with the water softener. These consumers are dissatisfied because either their softener didn’t work as designed (it tipped over and leaked or it stopped softening water), or the consumer does not agree with the price of the water softener.

  • The inlet high-flow shut-off control valve promotes a slow rinse time which improves water quality and water capacity.
CONS
  • There doesn’t seem to be many disadvantages discussed by consumers about this water softener, which bodes well for the quality of the water softener.
  • Consumers overall are overwhelmingly happy with this water softener. The only disadvantage that consumers complain about is that the hose fittings that come with the water softener are made of plastic and have the possibility of leaking, but most consumers didn’t seem to have this problem with the water softener’s attachments.
  • This negative review could be situational to the particular consumer that left the review. Either the attachments were not attached properly, or those particular attachments were defective.
