Axiom Puropal water conditioners for steam

Greetings fellow Wallies. Has anyone here ever had any experiences with the Axiom Puropal water conditioners for use in steam heating applications? Positive or negative, looking for all feedback.

We have tested the water before and after and are impressed with the results, but did experience some water line bouncing (steam) after we installed the cartridge. I suspect dirt from distribution worked its way back top the vessel, bit wanted to see if anyone else has had the same experience.

Thanks for your input.

It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    check th ph after a few days, the cartridge could pull it down into the high 6. Steamers like to run a bit alkaline

    Thanks for the advice HR. It's only on the make up, so it only conditions upon draw, but will take you advice to heart.

    Much appreciated.
