Well, itís been a few days since the Eco Smarte system was installed, and I thought Iíd give you a report on my findings.
I am thrilled. Listed below are the (4) things, in order of significance, that I am especially pleased about:
1. Absolutely no residue water spots on shower glass. Goodbye, squeegee and/or wiping down shower!
2. Water tastes great from any faucet. Goodbye, Brita!
3. My hot tea is crystal clear. Goodbye, yucky film left in cup!
4. Ice cubes no longer flake weird white stuff in my water glass.
I know the system does far more than what I just listed. But, the (4) items above are what I am really excited about.
Thank you, Craig, for an absolutely wonderful product. I could not be more pleased. Rita Guzzard
I would like to tell you how please we are with the performance of our Ecosmarte well water point of entry system. Prior to installing the system we were using a iron removal system on our irrigation and a reverse osmosis system for our drinking water. We were also experiencing flow problems with our faucets and shower heads due to mineral buildup. John from Ecosmarte told us about the benefits of the system and we had our water tested. This is not a simple water test; it is sent to the National Testing Laboratories and tested for 150 items. The most significant result was that our water contained Arsenic in addition to high Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Chloride and Sulfate. The water was also very hard. We elected to install as larger system to handle our whole house plus a large irrigation system. Ecosmarte, at no additional cost, provided an additional filtration tank to remove the Arsenic. Once the system was installed we had to make a few adjustments in our approach to our clean techniques, primarily not using chorine based products such as toilet bowl clearer and dishwasher rinse agents. When we first installed the system we elected to keep the reverse osmosis in place for our drinking water, but after 8 months we removed as it was not necessary. The system provides bottled quality drinking water at all our faucets thru out the house. All this is done without the need to do any maintenance the system or haul bags of salt to a softener.
At the same time we installed a Ecosmarte pool system for our in ground pool to eliminate the need for chemicals. After one season I can say we enjoyed a full season of a clear pool without the need for chorine or salt.
If you wish to enjoy the benefits of chemical and salt free odorless water I highly recommend Ecosmarte water systems for your house and pool. Charles Gebben
Hello! My name is Erika Quezada. I am writing to you to let you know how much we love my Ecosmarte pool filtration system! The water is so pure you can feel it. My husband, two kids and I live in beautiful sunny Florida and on very humid and hot summer days the water just feels light and refreshing which I attribute to the lack of chemicals floating in the water. pool water feels as if you are swimming in a natural spring. Theres no harsh chemicals to worry about, which is a must with my little ones eczema and my dry skin. Even after a few hours of pool time theres no chlorine or salty sticky feeling or smell radiating from me or the pool. My kids, 2 and 5, love to swim and can spend hours in the water and I have peace of mind that its ok because the water is free of chlorine and other harsh chemicals plus their little eyes are never irritated, that alone is worth it.
Weíve had the Ecosmarte pool filtration system for over 9 months now and not once did I have to add any chemicals to it or call for pool maintenance. My pool water stayed clean all winter and now spring, I want to say that it has already paid itself! The convenience of self serving system my pool is always ready for use, we saved for sure about $ 1,200 in pool maintenance not to mention about $ 600 in chemicals depending on the weather sometimes its more and this is only in one years time. My husband said it was a straight forward installation following the instructions provided in less than half an hour the Ecosmarte was installed, so that means I probably saved about $ 2,000 in expensive pool plumber installation. I took some pictures to show how our Ecosmarte is installed on our pool for real life reference.
We recommend the Ecosmarte pool system to anyone you won't regret it! Thank you Ecosmarte for caring,Erika Quezada
I live in Alaska and have an indoor, vinyl lined swimming pool and tile hot tub. I chose the Ecosmarte fully automated system for my pool and hot tub. Both systems were brought on line summer 2006 and have performed far better than I imagined. Not long after the initial set up and establishing the correct water chemistry parameters, the system operated optimally with minimum maintenance and cost. Whether it be family members or guests, everyone appreciates the chemical free water and not smelling like chlorine after a swim or tub.
Whenever I had questions regarding system operation or water condition, a call to the staff at Ecosmarte would resolve my troubles. These individuals are knowledgeable, courteous and ready to help.
I can highly recommend Ecosmarte to prospective purchasers who are considering chemical free water sanitation in lieu of chlorine or salt treatment for their pool or hot tub.Gary Boslough
We had the Ecosmarte Point of Entry Water Treatment System installed into our home on December 7, 2015. Our water comes from the Inver Grove Heights Municipal Water Treatment System. Prio to having the Ecosmarte system installed, our water was very hard - Inver Grove Heights water has a hardness factor of 20-22 grains per gallon. We were not using a water softener at the time of install and had not had one in our home for quite a few years because of so many problems with it and hated hauling salt all the time. Wondering what our water was like? Horrible!!!
I was constantly cleaning shower doors, faucets, emptying build up from the aerators, etc. Struggling to get rid of the hard water spots and chiseling calcium deposits off of everything! Skin was always dry and constantly loaded on lotions and oils. Freshly laundered clothes never seemed clean. If a glass was filled with water from the faucet, stuff would settle on the bottom, it had an odor and bad taste. We only drank filtered water from the refridgerator or bottled water. Our two miniature pinchers would never drink our tap water either. If I cleaned their dish out and filled it up with water from the faucet, they would smell it and look up at me and walk away.
But, since our Ecosmarte Point of Entry Water Treatment System was installed, our water changed! First thing we noticed was no more itchy skin. (I rarely use lotion anymore and it's winter!) Next, all of the hard water spots and calcium deposits easily wiped away after spraying with vinegar and rinsing with water. They are no longer a problem. Clothes are cleaner. Water tastes great and has no odor. Most surprising is that our dogs will drink the water right from the tap!
We are very happy with the system!!!Anne & Tom Peltier

About eight years ago I saw your booth at the national WQA show and decided to install your system on our pool. After putting in glass media in our sand filter we are extremely impressed - and COMPLETELY out of the chemicals!Everett Jones

We have had our Point of Entry system running for 6 weeks. One of the main reasons we got the home system is that we have had an ECOsmarte system on our hot tub since we got it. We love that there is no chlorine or chemicals.
Likewise for the Point of Entry system. We had a Rainsoft water softener, which didn't get rid of all the chlorine the city put in to disinfect. We had to haul bags of salt to keep filling it up. When it recycled and flushed, it dumped salt brine down the drain and that's not good for the sewer.
Now we can sit back and enjoy both systems and help the environment!Walter & Lorinda Dyck

My partner and I live in El Paso County. The water is ok but nothing compared to the water from the Purity Bay water filtration system we purchased from your company. I have bottled water straight from my sink. No more having to buy bottles which not only pollute our planet but cost a lot of money. Also no more carrying those heavy and bulky 5 gallon containers to put on the water cooler which is a quite difficult task might I add.
Not only am I drinking pure clean good tasting water but at the same time I am saving a lot of shelf space in the fridge and pantry from having to store bottled water and the 5 gallon containers (I had 6 of them). The fact that the water is super clean it allows me to rinse all my fruits and vegetables straight of the sink making every dollar that I spend on organic veggies worth it.
Everyone that has come into my kitchen has been served delicious water from my sink and has loved it! I couldnít be happier with the Reverse Osmosis in my kitchen.
We are also enjoying the water everywhere else in the home. Our product consumption has been greatly reduced due to the fact that we no longer need to use so much shampoo, conditioner, etc. One small drop the size of a dime will do. I have really long hair, so another savings here.
My French bulldog has skin allergies and we have to use special shampoo which is rather expensive and Iíve noticed the consumption here has been drastically reduced as well.
We are really happy with this financial investment we made. Itís one of those investments that will last you a lifetime and those are rare.
Aside from purchasing the Purity Bay water filter system we also purchased the Ecosmarte system for both our hot tub and swim spa and boy let me tell you, if I thought the Purity Bay filter was the best investment ever this completely doubles that. It is like swimming in bottled water. Itís like nothing Iíve ever experienced in my life. I no longer have to be adding endless amounts of chlorine, shock, water clear etc. Actually I donít have to add nothing at all. Just like that the water stays SUPER clean and NO chemical smells what so ever. The amount of money I will be saving here will pay for the Ecosmarte in no time.
I highly recommend the Ecosmarte system to any hot tub, swim spa or pool owner. This system gets 5 stars plusÖ. Overall we are one happy-happy customer. To anyone who reads this I say, investing in cleaner water is the best decision you will make in your life, your body is about 60% water and your skin is your largest organ, therefore treating it with high quality water is the best thing you can do.S.

I have owned my Ecosmarte pool ionization system now for about 10 years. As a natural doctor and nutritionist, I would like to say how pleased I am to have such a great alternative to the extremely toxic chlorine systems that most people are using with their pools. I have seen first hand how chlorine can totally effect people's health in bad way. It is so nice to have a beautiful, crystal clear pool that my children can enjoy without the fear of them getting irritated, uncomfortable and most importantly ill from the long term effects of chlorine exposure. I know that there are other options out there, but I am so glad that I chose to work with Ecosmarte. I have not had a single issue with my unit since I have owned it. When we send it back for regular maintenance, the fees are always extremely reasonable and the service is outstanding! Every time I call them with a question they go out of their way to assist me, even if it is not going to benefit them financially. Nowadays, that is extremely uncommon. Thank you Ecosmarte for offering such an outstanding product and amazing service to go along with it!Dr. Shirley
Since having the [Whole House City Water] Ecosmarte installed my drinking water tastes wonderful. I can tell the difference it has made to my skin. I would recommend this to my family and friends.Connie J

I purchased the ECOsmarte this year for our in ground pool. After reading it in an advertisement, I was curious. Not using chlorine sounded great. After learning more from the dealer, I was convinced to try it on the 60-day money back guarantee. There was a difference. The water made our skin softer and the children enjoyed the water without chlorine. They stayed in longer and didn't mind opening their eyes. Even my son's friends at the ages of 10 commented on the chlorine free water. My daughter started bringing goggles to her friend's pool because of the chlorine.
At the beginning it was a change to get used to the system. I phoned the toll-free number and the service was always friendly and helpful. When the 60-days were coming to an end, the choice was obvious. My wife and I decided to keep it. Our children were enjoying their swim and in the long run it is better for our health.The Camick family
Thank you so very much for all your patience with me regarding the ECOsmarte pool system. I am so excited about your products. Think about all the pollution we are reducing by not pouring tons of chemicals into our pools, thus preserving the health of our lives, our children's life, our wildlife and the future of our planet.
Your integrity as a company really shines through. You are there when we need you. It is noticed and - surely - it is appreciated. Thanks again. It's been great discovering ECOsmarteís pool system.Lisa Mitchell-Witchell
We love our ECOsmarte Pool system because the water has a fresh natural smell, our skin is never irritated by the pool water, and showering is unnecessary after swimming. We recommend this system to anyone who is interested in high quality swimming pool water.Jerry and Nancy Ouska
I have the TURBO system and your glass filter media in my sand filter gives me better clarity and less work than with my previous experiences with chlorine or salt.Carl Shaivo

We would like to tell you how much we have enjoyed our pool with the ECOsmarte system. In the seven years we have had the pool, it has always been so easy to maintain. The difference of swimming in it compared to other types of pools sanitized with chemical products is amazing. Please see (enclosed picture) how crystal clear our pool stays with your copper ionization system.The Balack Family
We bought our spa 1 year ago. After using it for 4 months I developed a bad skin problem. Sores and painful itch haunted me every minute. We were ready to sell the tub when our dealer suggested the ECOsmarte system. Now the rash has gone away and we are once again enjoying our tub.Gene M.
Enclosed you will find photographs of our ECOsmarte pool conversion. They should stand as a testimonial to ECOsmarte customers. We were apprehensive to try "another" pool product, but your system is easy to use and saves us money. Better yet, it has solved our ten-year battle with well water, nitrates, filtration and chemicals.
I have found you to be the most knowledgeable in pool construction and water chemistry and by far the most honest in the pool business. I'm looking forward to enjoying our ECOsmarte hassle-free pool for summers to come. Thank You!Kelley Schweitz
I have had the ECOsmarte system in for 6 years and enjoy it immensely.Keith Lange
I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how pleased we are with our new spa with the ECOsmarte system that we just installed in our home.
Having had a spa in our last home, we know what an inconvenience it is to constantly have to deal with chemicals to keep the water clean. With a chemical system, you not only invest your time in maintaining the water quality, but you also have an additional financial investment for the chemicals and the hassle of having to go out and buy them.
Having the ECOsmarte system installed in our spa has saved us time and unburdened us of the constant chore of measuring and adding chemicals to our water. The added bonus that we have found is our skin is so soft! In the past we've noticed a drying effect the chemically treated water would cause, but with ECOsmarte, it is just the opposite. Our skin feels like we've just stepped out of a moisturizing bath.
Thank you for showing us the benefits of having an ECOsmarte system installed in our spa, we'll never go back to chemicals again.Tom LaCourt
I just had a pool built---equipment turned on June 22, 2010. Shortly thereafter, I turned on my ECOsmarte System. I love my ECOsmarte System---(I also have the Glass Media). My pool is a little over 31,000 gallons and I have the Turbo System and a 600lb sand filter with the Glass Media. Everyone who swims in the pool compliments me on how nice the water feels. You can open your eyes under the water and not experience any discomfort. No dry skin after swimming nor any chlorine smells and I do not have any concrete stains nor worries about discharging the backwash in my yard.
I made the mistake of bragging about my pool and the Ecosmarte System on the internet (Trouble Free Pool) and was slammed---system does not work; water is unsafe; etc. I responded with research and empirical evidence but the thread was eventually locked. Regardless, I am a believer and I convinced my pool builder to purchase the automated system. In addition, my pool store where I go for acid ---the salesperson asked me if she can "pick my brain" and look at my pool in the future because she wants to get the Ecosmarte System. She told me that for the past several weeks that I have been coming in to test my water and get supplies---her other customers with salt have been coming in with algae problems.Bottom line? Great product and it works! Thanks again. I have included a few photos of my pool - that is some nice looking water.Bruce Hechmer
