    I ve had the pure freedom van mount system for 4 years, and it's been fine ....no trouble what's so ever, the only thing I ve changed in 4 years is the pump which I changed 2 weeks ago.
    The only thing when I bought I got their pole as part of the package.....but having changed to Gardiners.....the Gardiners are far superior poles

    That sounds awesome Shiny,I do like the look of pure freedoms equipment! It's on the higher end of my budget but for a quality system I'm sure I can wait till I have more money! Water genie seems quite a bit cheaper & also comes across as a quality looking system! Shiny what maintenance do you have to do with the pure freedom system? Do you salt back wash it? How often are you changing filters etc?
    Thanks

    I've found it to be quite low maintenance really, there's no salt wash to do.....I change the pre filters about every 6 month, back flush every other day (short) then on a weekend give it a long back flush (around 45 mins) I use very little resin (I never let the TDS go above 003) it's a 350 litre tank and if filling from completely empty takes 3hrs 40 mins approx

    Sounds good Shiny.!
    I'm guessing pure freedom would give me the demonstration of the back flush process etc
    I sold my camper van to pay for this so I just want to get it right 1st time

    I've been wfp over ten years & on these forums for about 8 years. I've only ever bought a tank & a few bits from PF with no issues at all & 9 out of 10 comments I've ever read about PF have been positive so I would have no reservations going to them- if that helps.;)
