At Monkey Wrench Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric, we’ve installed thousands of Flow-Tech devices all across the Los Angeles area. We’re one of the few licensed companies authorized to sell and install Flow-Tech systems, so we’re very familiar with pricing and cost factors.

The pricing for Flow-Tech water treatment systems is broken down into three options.

  • Flow-Tech Home Max: $2,800 to $3,200
  • Flow-Tech Pure: $5,500 to $8,300
  • Flow-Tech Pure Home: $8,500 to $12,000

Each option has its price range, with installation costs already factored in. At the end of this article, you’ll have the confidence to decide which option works best for you, or it can help you compare the costs of Flow-Tech from other authorized sellers.

Before jumping into the pricing information for Flow-Tech, let’s first go over how Flow-Tech systems work. Let’s get started!

How Does Flow-Tech Work?

Flow-Tech is an anti-scale system that sends an electromagnetic signal several thousand times per second through a home’s water supply to remove and prevent limescale buildup. The unit is installed next to a home’s traditional or tankless water heater.

The low-frequency signal forces the minerals that cause scale to build up, calcium and magnesium, to crystalize and stick to each other. The crystallized minerals will no longer stick to the inside of plumbing pipes, fixtures, and appliances such as coffee makers and refrigerator filters.

The limescale buildup in water heaters can cause a loss of efficiency of up to 40%. With Flow-Tech, the limescale reduction will improve a water heater’s efficiency and use less energy.

This device can save you money by reducing the energy your water heater requires and by extending the lifespan of your appliances by 50%. With Flow-Tech, you can save a few hundred dollars annually. Flow-Tech has long-term savings, but how much does it cost upfront?

Flow-Tech Pricing

Flow-Tech water treatment systems are only available through licensed contractors like Monkey Wrench Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric. If you have been shopping online for Flow-Tech, you may have noticed that pricing for this device is hard to find.

The price range varies for these water treatment systems, but financing is available regardless of which option you choose for your home. Pricing for this water treatment system is broken down into three options.

Flow-Tech Home Max

The first option available is Flow-Tech Home Max, which costs between $2,800 to $3,200 and includes installation.

Flow-Tech Home Max is the basic anti-scale system. Once a licensed technician installs it, it will require little to no maintenance. The unit will treat water 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, regardless of whether the water is moving.

Flow-Tech Home Max doesn’t rely on salt or other chemicals to treat hard water. This device is a great alternative to water softeners thanks to their lack of sodium and their increased energy efficiency.

The system must be connected to an electrical outlet but only takes up a little energy. Flow-Tech Home Max only consumes 10 watts, which is a little less than a lightbulb’s energy.

Flow-Tech water treatment systems aren’t only limited to anti-scale technology, though. Water filtration from Flow-Tech is also available at a specific price range.

Flow-Tech Pure

Flow-Tech Pure differs from the Home Max model because it is a whole-house carbon filtration system, not an anti-scale unit. The single-tank Flow-Tech Pure whole-house carbon filter is available for installation for $5,500 to $8,300.

Whereas the Flow-Tech Home Max addresses scale buildup, the Flow-Tech Pure uses a powerful carbon filter to remove impurities and provide better quality drinking water from every tap in a house.

Once installed, you can take advantage of the following benefits.

  • Removes chlorine and other disinfectant by-products used by municipal water sources to kill bacteria
  • Reduces fluoride
  • Provides better-tasting water, ice, and water-based beverages like coffee
  • Provides plumbing pipes with protection from corrosion caused by chlorine
  • Eliminates bottled water usage, which reduces environmental impact
  • The system can filter out impurities thanks to the carbon-based media inside the tank. As water passes through the filter, the impurities attract to the media, similar to a magnet. Treated water then enters the house while leaving the impurities behind.

    The Flow-Tech Pure has a backwash cycle to help flush away the impurities that remain inside the filter. The system will backwash once or twice a month to filter water efficiently.

    So, this unit provides filtered drinking water, and Flow-Tech Home Max provides anti-scaling. What if there was an option where you could have both systems working simultaneously?

    Flow-Tech Pure Home

    Flow-Tech Pure Home is a two-unit system featuring the Flow-Tech Home Max and the Flow-Tech Pure. This package combines Flow-Tech’s anti-scale system with the whole-house carbon filter, costing between $8,500 to $12,000.

    Before installing any one of these systems, a licensed technician must inspect your home. A technician will review how much water you use and how many bathrooms your home has to determine which size carbon filter is most suitable for your house.

    The Flow-Tech Home Max is a standard home unit, but the Flow-Tech Pure has two sizes of filters available.

    • 10×54 filter: ideal for homes with up to four bathrooms.
    • 13×54 filter: suitable for homes with more than four bathrooms.

    Is Flow-Tech Right for My Home?

    Running water inside your home is necessary, but having treated water, thanks to Flow-Tech, is even better. Flow-Tech’s anti-scaling and carbon filtration systems are great tools for ensuring the water in your home is top-quality. Now that you know the costs for the different Flow-Tech water treatment systems, you will be better prepared to make the right decision for your home or compare prices among competitors.
