Easy to install, works great
My order was missing parts when it arrived so I had to reschedule a plumber and call to have parts sent. Once the system was up and running it was apparent that the meter was not working and not counting down the gallons of water used. I am now waiting for another water meter from 602ABCWater. I hope this will fix the problem and that I am able to replace the part without hiring a plumber.
After reading numerous reviews, watching installation videos and talking to a few local water specialists, I decided to tackle the 5600SXT with carbon upflow on my own. I called with numerous questions about the system and right away I could tell that they actually care about providing great customer service. With all my questions answered; I placed my order, had the system within 5 days and then installed in 2 hours with the help of their handy videos. I wish I would have done this years ago. Well done 602ABCWATER!!

Replaced an old softener with this new unit and also added the upflow carbon tank. Big difference in the quality of the water and installation was fine for a do it yourselfer.

UPFLOW CARBON FILTRATION
Eco-friendly upflow design provides efficient filtration without the need to backwash. No backwash means no electricity required, no drain line needed, and no wastewater produced. Greener water filtration and cleaner, safer water is a breeze with our carbon tank filter system. 1.5 cubic ft. High Activity Carbon Media - Carbon media is a natural media derived from coconut shells that removes water contaminants through absorption.
UPFLOW CARBON CONTAMINANT REMOVAL
Removes a wide range of contaminants including chlorine and chloramines, pesticides, herbicides, organics, MTBE, and THM. It also removes most other chemicals, tastes, and odors, and is an excellent system for general filtration. Activated carbon media lasts much longer than your traditional 20" canister filters. Carbon media will typically last 3 to 5 years before needing a change, but this will depend on what is in your water and your household usage.
Water Softener Value Added Package
We pride ourselves in simplifying the consumer experience. We demonstrate this by PRE-LOADING the mineral tanks with resin for you to reduce heavy lifting & mess, we PRE-PROGRAM the Fleck digital meter to avoid adding guess work, we provide additional INSTALL ITEMS to save you from making extra trips to store, and we are very EASY TO CONTACT using phone, email, phone texting and now FREE FACETIME tech support.
Consider pairing this Water Softener with an Upflow Carbon Filtration System. The carbon extends the life of the water softener's resin beads. Carbon is an excellent media for absorbing chlorine from city water sources. Chlorine breaks down water softener resin. Protect your resin by investing into a combination system.
*tanks may be sent in black or blue (depending on stock) if you prefer a specific color tank please email us at sales@602abcWATER.com with order number and color tanks.
