"The owner and his employees are wonderful people, and we have had a very good experience with this company for the past several years. We rent our unit for approximately" 20 dollars monthly. Given that maintenance, service calls, and filter replacement are included in this monthly cost, my wife and I felt this was the best option. The water is crisp and tasty, and the system suits our needs well. Overall, the best and most affordable
company in the Cincinnati area. We recommend them hands down!

"The installation and responsiveness was very professional. The installer,
, took time to use all copper/brass fittings since that is what" our piping is. He took pride in doing an exceptional job. After a few days, we noticed the water had an off odor to it. I couldn't pick up the smell, but my wife could. We asked about it and Butler quickly came out and brought an replacement resin tank to see if that would address it. It didn't. They brought ANOTHER resin tank out. This time, without the carbon filtering media. We still had the odor. It was strong enough that my wife couldn't drink it, make coffee with it, etc. All of the customer service and response time by
, the office scheduler, and the installation/troubleshooting team was exceptional. Since we could not seem to correct the issue regardless of what was tried, I contacted another supplier of water softeners and had them come and install a unit. The smell was gone. The water was soft. I can only assume it was a bad batch of resin...or a unique composite that my wife could detect. This is where the story changes: I contacted Butler to tell them we had replaced their unit and why. I asked them to come pick up their unit and to refund $1100. I didn't request a complete refund since I knew they had incurred expenses with the replacement resin tanks. I kept calling
asking if they were going to accept my offer. She assured me that the owner, Art
, would call me back. I then called/emailed every 3-4 days for the next month. I was told that Art was: In a meeting, not available, on a conference call, in Columbus in a meeting, etc. I gave up. On 7/29/14, I contacted Angie's List to get help. The folks at Angie's List were outstanding. On 7/30/14, the day Angie's List contacted
, Art called me to apologize for "letting things slip through the cracks." He said my request for a refund of $1100 was very reasonable and that he would have
call to schedule a time for picking up the unit. That happened the next day, 7/31. However, you guessed it, NO REFUND. :-( I called the office and spoke to
on 8/12/14. She was shocked to learn that I had not received the check since she has prepared it for Art's signature on 7/31. She promised to check on it and call me back. She did within the hour, to tell me that Mrs.
had secured a Cashier's Check and she was going to drive across town NOW to bring it to me. She did. My summary: The staff of
is professional and responsive. They know their business well. However, the owner is clearly lacking in professionalism and responding to the requests of customers. I hope this review is helpful for both prospective clients AND

3 tips to select the best water treatment

Don't overpay for the wrong water treatment system. One highly rated provider offers some tips to help you choose the right system for your home.

Water softeners

Even if your tap water comes from a reservoir, chances are it previously passed through underground caverns where it absorbed mineral deposits. Water with a high concentration of minerals is referred to as "hard" water. It's safe to drink but can harm your plumbing and appliances.

Tired of hard water stains clouding your glass shower door? It takes diligence, but it is possible to keep a glass shower door clean. Find out how.

If you can't find a copy of your manual, most local water dealers can help you to identify your equipment, says LeGault. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Brian C. of New York)
Water Softeners

You just bought a home that came with an unused water softener. How do you turn it on? One highly rated provider breaks down the process in five easy steps.

Water softeners are beneficial because they can extend the life of your water-using appliances, plumbing and clothes. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Kevin F. of San Antonio.)
Water Softeners

Do water softeners need routine maintenance? Many are fully automatic, but others might need service if there's a noticeable difference in water quality.

I actually just replaced my Pelican Natursoft "water softener" with an more-traditional ion exchange model.  I used the natursoft for a little over 4 years, and I can say it worked as advertised.  When remodeling a while back we decided to get a tankless water heater.  All the documentation indicated that hard water with the tankless heater is a no go.  We had to do somehting, but since I'm lazy (didn't want to deal with the salt or plumbing in a drain) and my wife didn't like soft water, the salt-free model looked attractive.  I too was somewhat skeptical, but the reviews I found looked good, and I know enough about the science of nucleation (I was a material science major in college) to know that what they said made sense, so I bought one.

 

One thing needs to be made clear - the natursoft system is NOT a water softener!  It contains a media which nucleates some disolved metalic salts out of solution.  These crystals, once formed, remain in the water, and still react with oils, detergents, etc. in the same manner as the disolved salts.  They also continue to form scale wherever water is allowed to evaporate, such as faucet nozels and shower heads. In fact, it's possible that evaporative scaling was even worse than before we installed the system.

 

Importantly, however, once in crystaline form, these salts do not stick to pipes, or in my case, heat-exchangers.  My tankless heater has a sensor to indicate when it needs to be descaled, and the manual indicates that for my water hardness and hot water use I should have had to descale approximately every 6 months.  In four years with the natursoft the descaleing indicator has never gone off.  For further evidence, when I installed my new softener a few weeks ago, I had to cut sections from the copper pipe on both the inlet and outlet side of the natursoft.  Both sections of pipe were installed at the same time as the natursoft, but while the pipe on the inlet side was green and rough on the inside, the outlet pipe looked and felt like new.

 

As such, if you want or need a salt-free system for some reason (low-sodium diet for blood pressure, don't like the feel of soft water, can't easily plumb a drain into the softener location, or can't carry heavy bags of salt to the softener), then I can unequivocably recommend the natursoft.  If, like my wife and I today, you want soft water, that feels soft on your skin, creates less soap scum, rinses cleaner in the dishwasher, etc., then the natursoft probably isn't for you.

Water Softener Installation And Repair reviews in Cincinnati

During the consultation, I explained that I didn't want my sink in the basement blocked by the unit. I was assured that the unit could go behind the door and not block the sink. Prior to the installation, I explained to the installer that the unit is going behind the door. However, the unit was not placed behind the door, and the installer told me that the unit could not go behind the door but that I could remove the door so that the unit could be moved back from the sink. So now I have a unit blocking my sink which I'm not happy about.

The installation of the new system went well. However, the water had a funny smell (fishy/rubbery) to it. We waited a few days thinking it might must be a function of the system being new, but it didn't clear up. I called them to ask them about it. Later that day, they called back to tell me they had spoken with their equipment supplier and they said this rarely happened, but it would be a function of a load of bad resin in the softener.
They said the manufacturer was going to send them new resin for us, but rather than waiting for it to arrive, they would come out with a new tank/resin and switch if for us. They did that today. The water is now soft again and is ODORLESS!
I really appreciated them researching the issue and making it right QUICKLY! They have my business for any future needs. It's sadly all too rare that you find business people who will stand behind their product and make it right.

is so responsive and professional with reasonable prices. He installed all of our systems and we have him set up yearly to perform maintenance. I just had an issue and he came out the same afternoon (see above) and resolved it. There was no charge. Now that is customer service and standing behind your work which is rare these days. I would recommend

Choose a water softener from this company due to some of the features I liked. Installers were punctual and did a great job. About 2 months later I noticed water on the ground around the softener, and a quick call later the appointment was scheduled. They cme out, found the piece that had a problem and replaced it, all at 0 cost.

So far the water softener is living up to expectations.

(the owner of the company) first came out to meet with us, and showed us his products. We had a very old water softener from another company (which was much more expensive) previously. He was very helpful and forthright in answering our questions. we've been through many high-pressure sales pitches in the past, and it was very refreshing to meet with

. There was no pressure at all.

arrived timely, and looked at our old system. He was very up front about pricing, and we didn't have to negotiate or haggle about the cost. He didn't pressure us at all that evening, and we said we wanted to think about it before deciding whether to purchase from his company. We contacted the company that installed the old softener, and they wanted $3,400 just to replace the softener alone (and that system did not have the capacity that the one

2 days later, and ordered the water softener, whole house carbon filter and reverse osmosis system. We scheduled the installation within a week.

and his father-in-law arrived right on schedule, and installed everything in about 2 1/2 hours. They cleaned up after themselves, and everything works wonderfully. It's been almost 2 weeks now, and the dry skin our family suffered with all winter long is now a thing of the past! We absolutely love the reverse osmosis system. Since it was installed, we've both noticed that we're drinking a lot more pure water, and a lot less soda. We highly recommend

The company was great! The owner (family business) came out promptly to give estimate and see what installation was necessary. The were able to install the units and give detailed information as to what was done. Then they explained what further attention would be required to keep the units operating efficiently! The company also services their equipment yearly. They had terrific customer service. I highly recommend!

They arrived right on time. The work was completed in a timely manner. All of my questions were answered as well as general water heater maintenance tips that I was unaware of. He cleaned up the work area and with my permission left his boxes broken down and at the
