      Frequently Asked Questions

      Where does the ICS system go in my home?

      Where it can fit, and where it can easily get access to your home's water source. This is typically a garage, crawlspace, or even a closet. If you have questions a plumber would be able to help you find the best spot. During maintenance you'll need to fit a bucket and have enough space to turn the sump wrench which comes with your system

      How often do I replace the filters?

      Most people replace their filters once per year, or sooner if they start seeing issues with their water again. Learn about water issues here

      I still get water spots on dishes and on faucets.

      Hi George, thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you're still experiencing water spots on dishes and faucets. While water softeners like the ICS-1242K significantly reduce hard water minerals that cause these spots, sometimes trace amounts remain.

      We have some helpful resources on our website that might help:
      - Why Water Softeners May Leave Spots: You can find this article by visiting our website at www.cascadianwater.com and searching for 'spots'.
      - Preventing Dishwasher Spots: While on cascadianwater.com search for 'dish' to locate it.

      If these resources don't address your concerns, please don't hesitate to contact our customer service team. We're happy to help troubleshoot further and ensure you're getting the most out of your water softener.

      Works well but seems fragile

      I received my cartridge and immediately went to install it but taking it out of the box I found that my cartridge was broken in half and spilling beads out. I did not manhandle it and the packaging seemed adequate to protect it in shipping so I either got a bad example or the materials used are not sturdy enough. The nuvo cartridges are rigid plastic and seem very durable. Cascade cartridges are 50% more expensive and feel like they are made out of packing materials. Customer service was attentive and prompt in mailing a free replacement. It seems to be working as intended.

      Dear John, Thank you for your review of the Cascadian ICS-SP1222K Nuvo Home Alternative Replacement Filter. We're glad to hear the replacement filter is functioning well, and we apologize for the unfortunate experience you had with the initial unit. Our Cascadian ICS-SP1222K filters, while more expensive upfront, include sediment filtration and last twice as long as Nuvo filters (one replacement per year), making them a real bargain in the long run!

      We take product quality very seriously, and any damage during transit is unacceptable. We're committed to continuous improvement, we're investigating the matter further to ensure proper packaging and handling to prevent similar occurrences. We're also happy to hear our customer service team was able to assist you promptly with a replacement. Thank you for your understanding and for choosing Cascadian Water.
