We moved into our new house in Brentwood (Los Angeles) in 2008. We were moving from Connecticut where we had deep well water (700 feet deep) that tasted as pure as anything sold as pure water. We were very concerned about using a municipal water system, especially in LA given many horror stories about the quality and taste of LA water. We did our research and found out about ECOsmarte systems. The idea that we could have a whole house treatment system, with the capabilities of a municipal treatment system was almost too good to be believed. We gave it a shot, not only for the house water but also for our pool, especially as we did not want to use Salt or Chlorine in our pool or our house.
Ten years later, we are as ecstatic as we were when the system was first installed. Both systems have operated virtually maintenance-free, with only one repair needed in 10 years of operation for both systems. The water tastes as great today as it did ten years ago. Showers are special as the water just feels great. You have to experience to "feel" the difference and there is never any smell of chlorine. Swimming in the pool is also a treat, as there is no smell, no stinging in the eyes, and a smoothness that is difficult to explain - it just feels clean.
If I were to move to a new house, anywhere, whether Los Angeles or any other part of the country, I would install an ECOsmarte system before I moved in.
"When we purchased our hot tub, I wanted water that did not feel like we were soaking in bleach. You know that feeling, your skin gets TIGHT and DRY, and the smell is SO strong.
In our research, we learned that the salt systems were just another way of making chlorine. We started with OxySpa (potassium peroxymonosulfate) which was touted as the ideal non-chlorine oxidizer but it wasn’t ideal for us as it caused my husband to suffer persistent rashes.
I found ECOsmarte and it sounded like a dream come true. It did take some time to get the system established but the support we received was AWESOME.
The system does require an initial investment but ALL that we have purchased to support the system are five gallon jugs of muriatic acid for around five bucks which have lasted a very long time.
Our water is always CRYSTAL CLEAR with very little maintenance and has no smell or any kind of drying effects. My husband practically lives in our hot tub and couldn’t be happier with our ECOsmarte system".
"I would owe you and ECOsmarte a sincere thanks.
My story is that about 7 years ago I developed a reaction to bromine and chlorine, if I go swimming or use a hot tub it’s so bad I have to get a steroid shot.
So I have tried a few times to see if things changed and they did not. I asked many pool stores and hot tub places if anything else. Of course they said no. They make a lot of money selling chemicals. I have seen your ad, I believe on Facebook, and I started doing some research, read some great reviews and read some bad.
Took the plunge and purchased for my Florida home. I took a few days to get the water right as per your instructions.
Now the outcome,
I have had a hot tub every day sometimes twice in the last 8 days and I feel tremendous in every way. No rash almost clear water, little more tweaking to do, no smell to water, ECOsmarte has changed my life. Looking forward to this summer after I install one in my pool. I have 10 grandchildren that swim in our pool and I could never enjoy it with them."
My Heartfelt thanks,
Our pool is always perfect and for the last three years, we have been referring people to you. We love how easy it is to be CHEMICAL FREE. We also eliminated our saltwater softener which makes us truly healthy and Eco-friendly.
... As a side note, my ECOsmarte has been installed in my pool since 1997 and continues to work with great satisfaction. Best decision we ever made in installing this system. We love our chlorine-free pool!

Your system has served my pool well this year. The system was installed in October of 2004, and when I opened the pool in May of 2005 the water was crystal clear and blue. Your friendly staff helped me with several questions about the system's workings and are available readily by phone. I just closed the pool for this year and I'm very happy with the ease of maintenance that I had all this summer!
Thank you for fourteen years,
"I have had pools in one form or another since 1978. I started of course with chlorine for sanitation and clarity in all my pools. I have always loved owning Labrador and Golden Retriever dogs. Of course, my dogs loved to swim in the pool as much as possible, as all dogs do. The problem is they kept getting sick and they kept dying off - 3 dogs in a row, about 5-6 years of age: spleen cancer, bladder cancer, and stomach tumors. I thought it was just coincidence at first, then bad luck or later thought it was just the sad price to pay when you had a dog and a pool, as you can't keep a dog out of a pool and you can't keep a pool clean without chlorine... or so I thought.
Then in 1996, I transitioned to a chemical-free pool system with ECOsmarte. I was one of the early adopters when the company and technology were still new. I loved that there was proven science from the late 1960's NASA space program that now had a practical use for keeping the pool clear and clean. This was 20 years ago and the technology and design have advanced but at its core, it is still largely the same. I still use the ECOsmarte system today. The pool always stays clear and clean and it is easy for me to manage. The best benefit though is my last Lab swam in the pool almost every day and lived a fantastic 14 years. My current dog is 10 years old and still swims in the pool almost every day. I highly recommend ECOsmarte to all my friends and family today as much or more than I did 20 years ago. It just plain works and I know I am making the healthiest choice I can for what I expose my family to (with or without fur). Thank you ECOsmarte!"

I absolutely LOVE my Chlorine Free pool!!! And all my friends think it’s fabulous too. Especially one of my friends that has an allergic reaction to the chlorinated pool water. She loves to swim in mine.
I have used my ECOsmarte system for 3 pool seasons now and have became spoiled by it - I don't think I would care to swim in any chlorinated pool now!
Thank you so much for a great system and for the replacement copper plate offer.

My ECOsmarte system has been wonderful to work with. My pool water has been clear for six years now. Once the system is learned no one should have any trouble, that is if they follow the instructions. I am 72 years old and if I can do it, anyone can.
We have been extremely pleased with how your product has worked over those years. No chlorine burn to the eyes, no being held hostage to the pool by having to check the chemicals daily. It is really a worthwhile investment. As a former student at Bemidji, 1968, I learned that great things came from Minnesota.
The nice folks at Pinch-A-Remy have a hard time believing my 24-year-old pool has never had a drop of chlorine, bromine, and baquacil. We bought your system in 1994 when we were moving here from Ohio and we could not be happier. We are thousands of dollars ahead at this point and everyone loves our water.

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 affect people's health in a 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!
We have had our ECOsmarte system for 23 years and could not be happier. We tried Chlorine (which was harsh), and Baquacil (which smelled terrible), and then we heard about ECOsmarte. The system has worked perfectly and our grandchildren love the water because it doesn't sting their eyes. I highly recommend ECOsmarte.
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. There are no harsh chemicals to worry about, which is a must with my little one’s eczema and my dry skin. Even after a few hours of pool time, there’s 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 okay because the water is free of chlorine and other harsh chemicals plus their little eyes are never irritated, that alone is worth it.
We've 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 the 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 it’s 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 inexpensive 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,
My partner and I live in El Paso County. The water is okay 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 not having to store bottled water and the 5-gallon containers (I had 6 of them). The fact that the water is super clean 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 couldn’t 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 saving here.
My French bulldog has skin allergies and we have to use special shampoo which is rather expensive and I’ve noticed the consumption here has been drastically reduced as well.
We are really happy with this financial investment we made. It’s 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. It’s like nothing I've ever experienced in my life. I no longer have to be adding endless amounts of chlorine, shock, water clear, etc. Actually I don’t have to add anything 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 plus…. 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.

After 30+ years of adding chlorine, acid, shock, and other chemicals to my pool, I decided to redo the pool and all the equipment. This made me think of how I could make caring for the pool easier and less toxic. Storing the chemicals was a big issue for me. After research, I thought a salt pool would be the way to go. My wife pointed out how the saltwater might not be good for her plants around the pool. Further research made me aware of ECOsmarte’s no chemical system. This really appealed to me. It solved my chemical issues and automated the process to work hand in hand with the new efficient pool equipment. We have found the water to be much more pleasant to be in and with an almost soft feeling to the skin. In any case, when the grand kids have their swim parties they love the water. The settings on the micro controller are set and only need to be adjusted as the seasons change if you’re not lucky enough to be located in the San Francisco Bay area. The basic maintenance is refilling the Carbon Dioxide canister periodically for pH control and testing the pool water once a week to be sure all is okay. Thank you.

Hello! We have had an ECOsmarte system installed in our in-ground pool for several years now and are extremely satisfied with the results. We are currently in the process of selling our home and are using the system as a prime selling feature. It is incredible the response we have received from prospective buyers looking for alternatives to the same old chemical-filled pool. Some are believers, while others are more skeptical. In any case, it's hard to argue that a crystal clear pool is 'dirty". Throw in the minimal yearly investment in required chemicals and those skeptics start to listen. Soon they begin asking why everyone doesn't go this route. We have loved the system and anyone who has ever swum in our pool knows how great it is to not being covered in toxic chemicals. Many of our friends’ children have had their first swim in our pool because of the nice chemical-free water. Anyway, my wife and I are "sold" on the benefits of the system and have experienced its premier performance for several years. In fact, after our son was born last October, there wasn't any hesitation in having him join us in the pool on every occasion possible. We are very much interested in spreading the benefits of the ECOsmarte system and would like to know more about becoming a dealer of your products. Please send us some more information ASAP. We are located in the East TN area, both highly motivated individuals, and are true believers that alternatives to the norm are both best for you and the right choice. We're just looking to keep sharing the means to be healthier.
I have been using ECOsmarte water conditioning systems for my household water and for my swimming pool for four months now and would like to report back to you that I am extremely pleased with both systems.
My household water is supplied from a well and has moderately hard water. I have had to use a conventional water softener for the last fifteen years, constantly lugging heavy bags of salt to my basement to keep the unit operating. Even with the water softener, my sinks, faucets, and water heater had calcium build-up to the point where two of my toilets filled extremely slow. Within one month after installing the ECOsmarte system in my home, my toilets began filling normally and the scale on the faucets and shower heads disappeared. The bonus was the water felt softer. It was like magic.
As for the pool system, having a chlorine-free pool is amazing. My wife has very sensitive eyes and was constantly irritated by the chlorine. Since installing the ECOsmarte system, my maintenance costs have dropped to almost nothing. I still go to the pool every morning thinking there is something I must do. It's hard to break old habits.
Please use my name as a reference for your products. You've got a winner!

Love the CLEAR WATER!

It's refreshing to finally purchase a product that does exactly what it advertises and works perfectly!
We love our chemical-free pool.

I can't believe how easy your pool system has been - we're considering becoming a dealer.
My pool still can't believe it!
