Many people live in areas which are affected by hard water and high iron quantities in the water. Luckily, there are great water filters designed just for those issues. The IRON Pro2 is a high-quality system which removes sediment and metals and softens the water in a household.

Water softeners are used to eliminate hard minerals, which can inconveniently cause build-up in pipes and faucets, as well as lower the longevity of home appliances. The IRON Pro2 does that very efficiently, and it requires little maintenance.

This system also eliminates iron, manganese, and other metals from the water. It’s a good choice for areas with very hard water and high metal content because it can handle high quantities of both with ease. It can handle up to 8 ppm of iron and 6 ppm of manganese.

This is crazy:

This filter isn’t just very versatile when it comes to contaminants it eliminates. It’s also highly efficient due to its meter based regeneration feature. Basically, the system measures water usage and only regenerates when needed. When less water is being used, it regenerates less, thus conserving water.

The filter comes with a digital control system, and programming the system is extremely easy. Note that you will have to know what the water hardness is, what the system capacity is, and what the water usage would be. Installation is also simple, with all the tools and instructions provided, and it takes about two hours.

This filter is designed and sold by Fleck, which is a prominent company that has been producing quality water softeners for years. They are known for their high-quality customer service, and our research confirmed that they are available and always happy to help. They also provide great warranties – the IRON Pro2 has a 10-year warranty on the tank and a 5-year warranty on the control head.

The only downsides we could find are that the system is not suitable for very large households. So if there are more than eight people in your home, it’s better to opt for a more powerful system. Also, the installation lines aren’t included in the package.
