"I called on 12/30/14 as our old softener had stopped working the previous weekend and I was anxious to get a new softener installed as soon as possible. I left a" voice mail with my situation and
called back within a short period of time (less than an hour). He told me about the different systems they install along with the warranty information, life expectancy and efficiency of each model. He checked his schedule and said he would be able to get it installed the next morning and also remove the old softener for free since I am an Angie's List member.
arrived on time and got right to work. My husband was home during the installation and was very impressed with
's professionalism, knowledge and friendliness. He answered all my husband's questions and everything was cleaned up very nicely after the job was completed. He explained the operation of the unit (very easy to operate!) and which type of salt to use and why. We could not have had a better experience and would highly recommend this company!

"The gentlemen was very nice and knowledgeable, but really did nothing to help in anyway other than to tell me my
system needed a new membrane," which were expensive, but that he would get back to me with a price. It has been over two weeks and I have never heard from him. The $69 was a complete waste of money. Since he was of no help, I decided to try and change the membrane and filters myself since he did not do so even though the deal included such work. I spent over 3 hours tonight changing out the membrane and filters and now have leaks all over the system, which is now rendered completely useless until I can get a professional business here to complete the job. This shows a complete lack of professionalism and customer service, in addition to an inability to get back to me on the price of the parts that I needed. I am completely disappointed and will never use this business again.

Sizing the water treatment equipment before purchase is essential, as not all systems will fit in every home, Finn says. (Photo courtesy of Kinetico Water Systems of SWFL)

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.

Housecleaning, Water Softeners

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.

You'll notice the difference in your skin, clothes and dishes right away when you switch to soft water, says Knippa. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member David L. of Las Vegas)
Water Softeners

Softening your water can bring with it a whole host of benefits, but here are three things you’ll notice improving right away when you make the switch.

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.

They were supposed to deliver salt on January 252h at 8 am. I took work off to be here. Waited two hours and no one came. Emailed them the next day and got a response the next day that they would reschedule. I said i was not able to take another day off to wait for them. They claimed it was not their fault I should have waited. I told them the name of the person I spoke with (
