“Great for colored hair”

Written on: 16/12/2014 by Ccmarie3721 (1 review written)

I recently dyed my hair and was a little concerned about my tap water having a negative impact on the color. I mainly wanted something that could clean the chlorine out of my water. A good friend of mine recommended LifeSource, her family are big fans. I was concerned when they said it cycles in the middle of the night but I haven’t heard a peep from it, the color in my hair looks great and my hair is softer than ever… Read Full Review

We live in Stevenson Ranch, we had to change our salt water sofner (which we liked) to none salt. Sales person came and told us what model to buy. We paid 3000.00 thinking that it would work for us, it did not , we called them and new sales person came and tried to sell us another unit for additional 2000.00 telling us that we got a wrong water softner. Really?? We do not recomend them… Read Full Review

“I got ripped off”

Written on: 05/11/2014 by UnhappyCustomer91387 (1 review written)

I live in Santa Clarita, CA.... we have extreme hard water. I've lived in this home for 25 years. The City officials have outlawed the salt-based water softeners so I had to get rid of my G-E unit (which I was happy with). The salesman from LifeSource came out to my home and gave me his sales pitch. He brought out his device to measure the tapwater. It was a "22" and he said his home (Burbank/Glendale) is an "8". Well of course "22" is off the charts but I already knew I had to do something!… Read Full Review

“Heavily considering life source”

Written on: 30/10/2014 by desena (1 review written)

Very interested in getting a filtration system to clear out the chlorine from the city water. Did a little bit of research and found LifeSource which seemed to be the healthiest option since it doesn’t require regular doses of salt to be put into the filter. When I called to get more information everyone I spoke with was very friendly and did a great job of explain how the system actually works. So far my experience has been very positive and I’m looking forward to getting a system for my… Read Full Review

“We love our water system!!”

Written on: 18/10/2014 by sandra9099 (1 review written)

I found out about LifeSource from my father. He’s been raving about it since he had the thing installed. What really caught my attention was the amount of water my son drinks at my dad’s place. My son plays football and is really big on drinking a lot of water since he’s out in the sun all day for practice and games. He doesn’t usually like water straight from the sink cause of the bad taste. I end up buying bottled water so he doesn’t dehydrate himself. Bottled water by itself it… Read Full Review

“Amazing system”

Written on: 09/10/2014 by veniciabarbosa (1 review written)

This company completely shocked & impressed me!!! Living in Lancaster, my water has always been a little funny. I never really enjoyed the taste of it, so I've always bought bottled water. Then I finally found Lifesource thank god!!! The people who came to install it were incredibly nice & very helpful. They explained everything that the system does & how it works. The most important thing about this system is you don't have to change any filters, add any salt or do anything to keep it working… Read Full Review

“Still having sulfur smelly water (rotten egg smell). ”

Written on: 04/10/2014 by orlandokat (1 review written)

I live in Orlando - Florida. My home is 15 years old. We purchased a whole house LifeSource water filtration system NSF-42 Elite Series in March 2014. Excellent service and attentive reps. The problem is with the smelly water - smells up the house. It is embarrassing. We've bypassed it 10 times in 6 months and had the company even do a chlorine treatment but the smell starts coming back after 4 days. I was instructed to pour concentrate Clorox down on all the drains in the house. No… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/11/2014

I believe I have resolved this problem. After flushing the system a couple more times, the smell has stopped. So I guess my pipes were really nasty and needed more chlorine flushing procedures to kill the bacteria. This is done by turning the tank valve off for city water and on for the filtered water. So, I am pleased now. If it were to happen again, we will do another wash out (flushing) for 24 hours and hopefully that will be that.
So I change my scores to all 5 STARS. Thank You LifeSource.

Written on: 22/09/2014 by amh54321 (1 review written)

Very excited to finally have filtered water throughout my place. There definitely has been a pleasant change in the smell and taste of my water. I’ve also found that cleaning up water spots is much easier than before. Overall, I’m pretty happy with this system. I also really like that I no longer have to go out and get jugs of water, that’s time, money and plastic waste that I don’t have to mess with anymore. The installer I worked with was named [name removed] really nice guy! Did a… Read Full Review

“Puts Customers First”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by slcmcdougal (1 review written)

I was a little hesitant about getting a filter from this company at first because they don't have a location near me; however, I really wanted a system that didn't need upkeep and within my budget. I worked with a guy named Travis. He immediately contacted me with my estimate, answered all my questions, gave various install options and even spoke honestly about what would suit my needs the best. Not a pushy salesman, he actually advised me against purchasing the scale solver because he said I… Read Full Review

“Clean water thanks to LifeSource”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by xicken (1 review written)

My husband and I recently bought our first home in East Dallas, but weren’t prepared for the terrible water quality. Water bottles were out of the question since we try to keep it as green as possible and can get pretty pricey. So we found Life Source and thankfully had a good experience. We both work, but as a teacher I had the summer off to allow us the installation – since it is during business hours I guess that is a tip I’d want to know in advance. Everything from the installation… Read Full Review

A while back I started looking into water softening systems because the hard water where I live here in Fresno was wreaking havoc on my appliances mainly my dishwasher with 3 repairs to date. I started wondering what it was doing to my water heater as well, I had seen the hard water build up in my dishwasher. I remembered my dad had bought a water system a few years back. He had to put salt in the system continuously. So as I was researching water systems and came across LifeSource the no salt… Read Full Review

“The VERY best in whole house water and ScaleSolver systems”

Written on: 04/05/2014

I am a firm believer of this product and company LifeSource. When you purchase the whole house filtering unit, you need to add the ScaleSolver and Pre-sediment filter. This is a complete package. Looks like LifeSource was approved the NSF/ANSI 61 for the ScaleSolver unit on 2/4/2014. That is great news. I have been a LifeSource customer for 5 years now. I only had the 2250SE Tank bought back in 2009. I saw that they added the new Pre-sediment filter and ScaleSolver. I was interested in… Read Full Review

The Lifesource system DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. I paid $350 to have an independent test done by two environmentally lab agencies and nothing is removed from the failed units. The hard scale solver does not work at all. DO NOT BUY this system at all. I owe both units and I have all the facts and proof that none of them work. It is a waste of $5,000. Be careful as this unit DOES NOT WORK!! It is only a carbon filter that can not even remove chlorine.
BUYER BEWARE.

Written on: 01/10/2013

We love our Lifesource whole home filtration system, it is such a great product. We live outside of Boston, MA and had the filter installed here by a local plumber. The reason for this review is to mention the GREAT customer service we received from one of their reps over the phone. Shortly after we had the tank installed, we had a few questions regarding the operation of the timer, and she was extremely helpful and answered all our questions. Would highly recommend!… Read Full Review

“Ripoff”

To begin with I had a sales women who came to my home full of promises of what the whole house LifeSource system would take out of my water. She guaranteed me I would have pure clean drinking water. After much investigation, I fine that the whole house system only has coconut carbon and it refreshes the taste and takes out regular chlorine and that’s about it. What about fluoride, chemicals, nitrates, chloramines, dissolved solids, pesticides and hardness in the water? Not a chance. So I… Read Full Review

Actually Urmaster... You can replace any part of any system, including a LifeSource. It's just after any plumbing filtration system lasts as long as a LSW system, what do you really want to save? What you seem to overlook is that due to 30+ years of testing, constant improvements and numerous government level certifications, there simply aren't many things on a LifeSource Water system that would ever need to be replaced until it is truly end-of-life, many years down the road. As to what LifeSource systems are capable of removing from the water, just Google what pharmaceutical grade Granular Activated Carbon is known to absorb/remove from water. Perhaps even look at an industry standard report as old and the 1997 Michigan Report on what top quality Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) will do. And, this is obviously long before all of the refinery improvements in GAC filtration media since then. The reality is, Pelican uses KDF Resin (Copper and Zinc sand) as a major aspect of its filtration media and the Whole-House filtration units are not - repeat - not certified to USA government standards. Something that they continue to side-step by posting certifications to other products that they private label, such as
Reverse Osmosis units in such a way that you are led to think that all of their products are “certified”, when they truly are not. Also, the company that owns the patent on KDF-55 states that KDF media MUST be “Rinsed with hot water on a regular bases to dislodge trapped contaminates”, which then will just flow freely through the house as they would have nowhere else to go. (?) Does your Pelican have a hot water line leading to it in order to properly rinse it on a regular bases. (Not on any residential system I've seen) And the fact that many uncertified systems that don't backwash, well... it's just further proof that they are spinning the truth by telling you that - "Hey, no problem. If it fails, we'll send you some more filtration media so you can hire a plumber and dump the old stuff down the street drain and then try and funnel the new media into the tank.” No Problem Right? Very Environmentally Sound Right? I've heard them say all sorts of things and the fact that what they say and the fact that their website deliberately is full of so many options simply designed to confuse the end-user so that they are forced to call the sales department, at which point they will tell you anything and everything that you want to hear - just so that they can move a box is disturbing at best. Face it fans, if it were inexpensive to build a truly high quality machine, we'd all be driving Bentleys that we got via a web site sale for 50% off. Sound familiar?

Good luck with your Pelican system. I replaced my Pelican system with a LifeSource system and I am a million times happier with LifeSource then I was with Pelican. My LifeSource system has already out lasted my Pelican system and without any added expense.

Hey Lulujay's I know you work for Lifesource, and if not you are an idiot, how you compare Pelican with Lifesource, one system cost around $800 and the other around $4000. With pelican you can replace any part of the system, while Lifesource that's not possible.

“The company is awful.”

Written on: 13/02/2013 by olivemarie (1 review written)

I would not recommend this product for many reasons, number 1 being that company is awful. I purchased a system last summer and they pressure you into it by giving a price that will expire within the week...pressure! They claim they have this beotron filter that sets them apart from other systems, basically all it does is suspends minerals in the water that is unavailable to your body and makes your dishes look dirty. The water tastes awful and it makes your hair dried out. They rigges the… Read Full Review

Yes, I agree with that, the company told me the carbon filter replacement about 700 dollars. When I call for the replacement they said that can't be replace, I have to purchase a new system again.
Awful, don't buy from them.

The so called replacement filter is when you want to replace your system at the end of its approx. 20 year life. I have the LifeSource system and have not had to pay for anything extra since it was installed 4 years ago. I have also not had any problems with my system or with the company.

Well I got the price this morning. The 1620 unit for the house is well over $4,000, but for me he's got a special deal just good till Thanksgiving, about $3,500 and they pay the sales tax of 7.25% so the it's $3,500 instead of $3,700. Installation would be up to $600 extra. The warranty is no good unless you use their installer. He did the chlorine test showing how much was in CL was in my water and how much was was in my water after using the refrigerator water that had gone through the Aquapure canister filter. Both are yellow. His filter returned clear water. Not sure how bad CL is for u but my water company puts it in and is in compliance with federal standards.
Not going to spend $3,500 on this. I can live with some lime scaling.

We bought the whole-house system 19 years ago for a bargain price of $2200 and have never had any trouble. Our family noticed the difference in the taste, smell and feel of the water. There are 4 of us in the house and none of us can imagine going back to water the way it was.

The system needs attention now, the backwash unit is leaking from the bottom. If need be, we will replace the whole system with the same kind of unit. It was the best investment we ever made (other than the house we are living in).

Loving it in Plant City, FL!

“Water still smells”

Written on: 28/08/2012 by Jim_Calabrese (1 review written)

The system was easy to install - but needed a chlorinator that they sold me to help with the smell The chlorine has since been used and there are no directions on how to either open chlorinator to add chlorine or where to buy chlorine. I've sent a couple of emails to customer support - and they never respond The water now smells as bad as it did before we installed the unit. The only good thing is the rings in the toilets rarely happen (although they still do somewhat). … Read Full Review

I really dont know why there are so many negative reviews here, I've had a great experience with the system. The customer service was friendly and the installation was simple and fast! Plus I had a free basic installation coupon, so that helped a lot! Sure the system is a bit pricy, but it's definitely worth the cost! Right from the first week I had it I noticed that the smell that my water used to have was gone and the chlorine taste was completely wiped out. I've had the system for a few… Read Full Review

We bought this system almost 10 years ago and have no problems whatsoever. It services itself and the water has always been great.
