Seen a couple of threads about water filtration systems.  Might be of interest to those tossing up the idea.  

 

https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/105015268/hrv-pleads-guilty-over-false-and-misleading-watersoftening-claims

 

 

 

Water filter company HRV has pleaded guilty to 11 charges laid by the Commerce Commission related to false and misleading claims about the benefits of its filters and the quality of New Zealand's water supply.

 

Charges were laid in Auckland District Court on Monday under the Fair Trading Act, and related to claims HRV made between July 2014 and October 2017 on its website and through promotional content.

 

The commission said HRV's claims about its filters' water-softening properties and ability to reduce skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis were unfounded.

 

HRV also misled consumers about the levels of chemicals and additives in New Zealand's domestic water supply, and the need for consumers to buy a water filter to address this.

Good. I can't stand people or companies who bend the truth like that.

I feel that companies that do this sort of door to door hard selling truth bending junk should be liquidated to the public then disbanded and the directors/marketing staff put on the gazette for misleading consumers. Would fix a few issues pretty quick.
Oh yeah, lets nab the media outlets here for the same thing. Clickbait = liquidation.

Give it a couple of months and they will be back at it again..

Their similar approach to selling their ventilation systems is why I don't own one.

And they are now selling grid connect solar systems. What could possibly go wrong?

They could install 'em where the sun don't shine?
