"When I emailed on Angies list, responded quickly and offered to accomodate my schedule to meet me and quote the job." Within days he was at our house and was able to provide ideas and options. was very personalble and both my wife and I felt very comfortable the moment he came in the house. We excepted a 10 minute quote and he was here for almost an hour looking at all details and going through our options. provided a quote on the spot and said call him with questions. I have 4 other plumbers come out and out of the total of 5 plumbers all off Angie's list, was the plumber that instilled the most confidence in us. Both my wife and I were comfortable and felt like really cared about our home and our situation. A few months later we hired and came with his assistant to start work. He was flexible around our schedule, clean and neat, and of any concerns. I even call an hour after the job started to make a change and accommodated and made it "no problem". After the job was complete, even came back to check everything out and found that one of our sinks did not have the pressure that he thought we should have. He cleaned everything out and it worked perfect. He did some extras and was happy to address any concerns we had. I feel like we have a friend in the business and he truly has our best interest at heart. Just moving to California and purchasing an older home, my wife and I feel blessed to have worked with and and will be counting on them on the future.

"I got an estimate from Water because neighbor recommended them. I went to their office in Elk Grove since they don't do sales calls." The woman in the office was very friendly, explained their services, and provided an estimate for the eco-twin system that was competitive with other provider. I chose to use another provider because we needed to use the by-pass valve frequently (once or twice a week) since some of our hose bibs would be on soft water and the woman at Water was honest enough to say theirs may develop a leak if used that often. If we did not use need to use the by-pass so often we would have gone with the Eco Twin system from since it removed chlorine as well as softened .

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.

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.

Most people know they have hard water by the residue left on their dishes or shower head.

When buying a water softener or descaler, you have a few choices. Here's what you need to know about the different systems.

Angie's Answers


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.


I bought a home with a 9 year old Kinetico in it in 1989. With our family of 6 the Kinetico used 1/2 the salt of two other brands we owned in previous homes, even though the water was harder in the home with the Kinetico non-electric system. When I sold the home in 1993, the buyer insisted I leave them the Kinetico. I bought a new one for my new home, my family grew to 8 and now after 21 years, it has only needed one repair (new resin) 5 years ago.

To answer your question...Kinetico would be a "Mercedes" while others carry the "yugo's." Kinetico offers many models to meet the needs of all families. The single tank Essential unit works well in homes with no iron and 1 or 2 people. Like other single tank systems, it can't provide soft water to your home while it regenerates. However, the Essential only takes 15 minutes to regenerate where electric units might take hours from start to finish. It also carries a full 5 year warranty on all parts. Other systems typically exclude the most important parts after only 1-3 years. All single tank softener can and will occasionally run out of soft water. (laundry day)

The Twin resin tank Kinetico models have several advantages like...5 yr warranty on Signature and Premier models have a 10 year warranty on all parts. So with the twins, you get better water, have virtually unlimited capacity, use less salt, are quiet, use soft water to clean themselves, use no electricity, have no clocks, batteries or computers to ever repair or reset. Power outages & surges have no effect on them. Having a Kinetico sold me on their value. Ask your dealer about renting one, so you can try before you buy.

Water Softener Installation And Repair reviews in Sacramento


is a find. Friendly, professional, and more than a plumber. was able help me find a toilet that would fit under the banjo countertop. He repaired a leaky toilet and installed a low flow showerhead. also did a few minor other minor repairs.
Thank you, !!!!
- Maria M.

Good job cutting the sheetrock so that I could easily replace it; properly secured the pipes; showed me how easy the water softener unit is to fill and check and the system is to check and replace filters; worked quickly and cleanly; he called a month later to see how my system is working and if I had any questions. I would definitely ...More call hi back for any additional plumbing work.
- Marlys T.

The installation of the water filter system went smoothly and took about an hour. However the scheduling of the first and second visits presented some confusion, due to the communication errors of the company's administrative assistant. The owner, , was very efficient and professional and provided me with some referrals ...More of other home repair professionals.
