The city of Sugar Land will be switching from chlorine to chloramine to disinfect the water. From what I read, Missouri City already started using chloramine last year. We received a quote from an EcoWater dealer in town through Costco for a water softener and refiner. The system that was quoted is the ERRC 3502 for $5470 (tax/install included). The price of $5470 has a discount of $2k since we are Costco members and not getting the reverse osmosis system. EcoWater also an incentive for a $750 Costco gift card and since we are executive Costco members this purchase will count towards our annually 1% rebate. The total deducting the $750 GC and Costco's 1% rebate comes to $4664. This still sounds a bit high to us.... Has anyone had this system installed and/or would know if this is a reasonable price? Thanks.

That is a total rip off! You are not buying the system through Costco. It is a third party contractor and if you do your research you will find that the Ecowater product is inferior to the other water softeners on the market. It is also a propriety product which is extremely bad in the water filtration industry. Combining the resin and carbon into one single tank is also a bad way to filter the water. Again, do your research and you will find that getting two separate tanks is the best way to go. One for the water softener and one for the carbon filtration.

Have an Ecowater system and have regretted it ever since installing it. I sometimes wonder what was fed me for me to go down that route...! (I know the answer - new baby, new house and wanting to put a softener in straight away).

Personally all that matters to me is the water I use for drinking. I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a whole house system when most the water we use is just to clean stuff. Why not just buy a $125-$200 reverse osmosis unit for the kitchen with an extra Pre-filterer stage for taking out chloramine?
