Quote be the op....

Our outdoor unit is on the east side of the house and is shaded in the afternoon, but the whole area is concrete, not lawn, and stays pretty warm even at night. More-so with the latest heatwave crap...

I don't think that this was to be a permanent fix. I think that it was just a temp fix with the heat we have been having.

Do you have any reason to believe their filter is actually going to condition water to remove minerals, or is it a marketing false advertising gimmick?
The filter will catch the non soluble items, but other then that, its just marketing.

They don't evaporate the water. And even some of them do have troubles.
