    i use ionics systems i do like them but would'nt advise others to buy them as there maintenance costs are really high when compared to all the other systems, me personally if i was going to buy a brand new system with your budget id be looking at the grippa max systems or pure20 (ioncis value brand cheaper which is just as god quality but with cheaper filters to maintain)

    I've stopped replacing the carbon and sediment filters on my pro6 system and only backwash the salt canister weekly. I've had the system over 5 years now and it's purifying better than it ever did.

    I'm having to replace the resin canister about once a year. I run two in sequence so I run the water through the older one before the new one. The new one hasn't yet started to show any colour change two months in.

    If you replace filters at ionics recommended times it can be expensive but it's costing me around £150/year to run mine.

    extreme clean are you in hard or soft water area? are you not running the carbon & sediment filters at all now then or using one that overdue a change? i did away with the colour changing di vessels a long time ago as they wasnt lasting long and costing a bomb to replace

    I'm down in the south east and the water is pretty hard down here.

    I've still got the carbon and sediment filters in place and run through them.

    I use two colour change filters and run through the older one first then the newer one. I find that I can make a filter last 6-12 months and still have a TDS reading of less than 10!

    The colour change resin still lasts suite a while after it's turned brown.
