Is it really just a piece of PVC with fittings on each end ? I'm thinking there must be more to it than that.

It seems pretty straight forward. However, it would be very helpful if someone could give a brief "how to", including parts needed.

Thanks much.

Gang,
That "Water stick" looks about as simple as it gets. I think I could build one in about 20 minutes if I had all the parts in front of me. I think I'll take this project on. It looks like about 24" of 2", reduced to 1.5" and reduced again to 1" and finally an adapter for a female garden hose swivel end, which I already have. And on the business end, the same reducers are in place only a male garden hose fitting is on that end. I might put some sort of screen in there to keep the granules in, heck that's just some window screen maybe. What a cool experiment.

Why not use (purchase) one of the portable water softners. I have one and it works great. I use it primarily for soft water in the coach but can easily use it to rinse the coach too.

I have one of these and it works pretty well. You HAVE to contain the resin beads, otherwise you will blow the entire tube clean in under 30sec. The trick is the fancy screens that they have in there that became unavailable for awhile and caused the company to cease production... Looks like they got through that.

I would like to know what the 2 different resins are to see if they can be found cheaper in bulk. One is the standard soft water rechargeable resin, the other is not, but because they are mixed together, you need to replace them both.

Not quite that easy

see below you need a water in ( the long red pipe) to bubble water through the resin , then need a screened water out ( short red tube)
and it must stand on end if constructed this way and filled only 3/4 to 6/8's of the way with resin beads
