Been using a Waterstick sofener for about 2 years now, following the mfg suggested re-charging instructions to the letter. Initially it worked great, but as time has gone by it seems to have become less and less efficient. Suspect the beads probably are due to be replaced as each re-charge is lasting a shorter and shorter period. For a reference point, we usually camp 50 - 60 night per year with 2 - 3 showering most days so it has seen at least 300 - 360 showers plus toilet flushing and kitchen use. Overall probably not a bad performance given the initial cost.

In general they work fine but are so small (1500 grains per gallon) that they require recharging much too often to suit us full timers. The ones many of us use are 8000 gpg or 10,000 gpg.

Where are parked now in AZ the water has 50 gpg of hardness (that is really hard) and our Mark 8000 has to be recharged every ten days. A Waterstik would have to be recharged every 3 days.
