"same as everyone else. shady "welcome to the neighborhood " card in the mail, then they worm their way into your home for a very long sales pitch about" how bad your water is. DO NOT let them come to your house trust me.

"We had just left on vacation and could not troubleshoot the issue ourselves so we were pleased the
crew was able to take care of the problem" quickly for our tenant while we were away. We thought the charge was reasonable considering the two service calls and the new pump and pressure switch installation.
put in a better unit than we had before. We used them before for the purchase and installation of aerators and chlorinators and help learning water testing, so we had prior experience with
and appreciated that we could trust them to do a good job at a reasonable price in our absence.

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.

Researchers find that popular PEX plumbing may harm the water coming from the tap in your home.

Does your water taste or look a little funky?

While water softeners are inherently green, there are a few considerations you can make when seeking an eco-friendly purchase. (Photo courtesy of Kinetico San Antonio)

On an energy efficiency kick? Your water softener may already be greener than you think.

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

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.

Way overpriced! Had quote to not only fill with resin and change distributor, but to also change gravel, seal rings and piston for $470.
Technician replaced the medium, but not the gravel. Replaced the distributor and supposedly used higher end medium, but can't tell. No samples provided.

They took the entire unit apart and informed my wife that it was going to cost $595 to get the softener running correctly. That’s when I decided to leave work and come home to a**** the damages and see what was going on. They pointed out that the resin (
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
) was gone, which was true. They moved the distributor (outlet manifold) up and down and mentioned that there was gravel at the bottom of the mineral tank. When I asked why the gravel they mentioned that the gravel had accumulated because the distributor was no longer filtering and reason for the gravel accumulation.
Didn’t feel comfortable about the whole ordeal so I paid the $85 for the inspection and they left. I then contacted the original installers to change the distributor and fill with resin (media). The unit started to leak when the tech ran the system. He then took it apart and asked me if someone had worked on the system. The reason he asked is because the piston seals where not installed correctly and found rocks in the piston. With the exception of the
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
, the system just fine until Friday. Not accusing anyone, but interest enough that this unit had been working just find with the exception of not having media until technicians got their hands on it last Friday. There has not been any pluming work done to the house that could have made for rocks to get into the piston. So, today I ended up having to pay lots of $ to another company to fix the damages.

explained exactly what they would do, how they differ from the competition and did not try to upsell on anything we didn't need. The crew showed up on time on Saturday and worked through lunch until the project was finished. They had to dig trenches for the new water line and installed the water softener system in about 4-5 hours, despite the heat. They cleaned everything up and made sure that we were completely satisfied.

also had to drill a hole into our expensive granite countertop to install the spigot for the

My father is in his 80s and needs help to manage his home. His water softener was at least 20 yrs old, if not older, and no longer working. After doing my research on Angie's List, I decided to call
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
because of their reputation for quality service and products at a reasonable cost. Plus, they carried the highly rated Fleck brand of water softening system I was looking for. I was not disappointed. After calling that morning, I met with
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
, the owner's son (it's a family owned and run business) that afternoon. He came out to the house, looked at the old unit, answered all my questions and made his recommendation for what he thought would meet our needs best. The price was very reasonable. Two days later,
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
came back as scheduled and installed both the water softener and water purification unit in one afternoon...no delays, no problems, no
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
extra charges. The week after that, I received a phone call from
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
to schedule for salt delivery, so my father would get salt delivered as needed. Now that he was added to Affordable's Water's salt route, the company will handle checking and adding salt to the system only as needed. This service is also very inexpensive... they check the salt level for you and you only get charged if salt is actually needed at that time. Best of all, my elderly father doesn't have to lift and pour heavy bags of salt himself. FYI, we are also pleased with the Nimbus water purification system that was installed under the sink. It has it's own separate faucet and provides noticeably better tasting water that is free of contaminants. Very happy with this purchase as well. Overall, my experience with
Torrance Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
has been excellent and I highly recommend them.
