Some things in life do all the work and get none of the credit. You may be the one person in your office who does all of the donkey work but gets none of the credit. The cam belt which keeps your car ticking over probably never gets the praise it deserves. The same can be said for tools around the house and one that perhaps gets less credit than most is a good water filtration system. Without one of these the water you drink could have any number of nasty and horrid things in it, so if you don’t have one of these systems in place in your home it is something well worth considering. Luckily for you we are going to be looking at one today and that one is the Fleck 5600SXT!
So what will it actually do for me?
For those of you who don’t know what a water filtration system does, it will essentially clean all of the bad things out of your water supply before you use/drink it. Soft Water Filtrationis a website which can tell you more about this if you want to know anything else, but for now, back to what the Fleck can do. The Fleck 5600 has a digital metered, on demand valve and fully programmable cycles. This means that you will have full control over your water filtration levels. The system comes with a ten yearwarranty on both tanks and a five year one with the electronics so you are covered if anything should go wrong too! The most impressive thing about this system however is the fact that it can treat up to 12 gpm flow rates, or when it is translated to regular person speak, a home with 3-6 people in it.
Will it be too intrusive in my home?
You may be worried that this system will be a big ugly eyesore somewhere in your home but I can promise you that this is not the case. The tank measures 10 x 54 inches and the brine tank 14 x 17 x 33 inches so even when combined they do not take up a lot of room. They are plenty small enough to tuck away neatly somewhere.
Whats are the positive points?
If you are worried about the water you are drinking, or even if it is simply too hard and is causing you lime scale issues then this water filtration system will sort that out with the minimum of fuss.
And what are the bad points?
One or two of the components in the system seem to be made of a cheaper plastic and as a result are less reliable than the rest of it, but these complaints do not appear too often.
Sum everything up for me.
This is a simple piece of kit which should make a big difference to your health and the health of your family. Whilst you may not notice something as small as having hard water, it can make a difference and if you have the chance to solve this issue then I would recommend doing just that!
