"I had a very good experience when
came to my place, as she did the appropriate water testing, and was very honest and ethical in recognizing" that the softener still works, unlike the technician that did the testing at the first appointment. Based on experiences like the one I had with the technician the first time, it is difficult to trust companies these days. Thus, my advice to customers is that they conduct thorough research before deciding to sign a contract or hire a company for their services. I will update the question about quality once my equipment is in place.

"They were punctual , did as they said they would, they went right to work, answered any questions, before, during and after they completed the installation. They" cleaned up and were gone in the time frame promised. Not before they explained the system and how to use it and how to keep it from freezing, etc.

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.

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.


Water Softener Installation And Repair reviews in Salem


Called Integrity based on reviews from Angie's List.
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
promptly returned our call and set up an appointment. We were impressed with
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
's knowledge of plumbing and his pride in his products. The price seemed OK. One week later we had our new filtration system. I marked a B for punctuality because I was having a party that evening and
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
was a couple of hours late. It was no big deal, but the stressful. Anyway,
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
was quite helpful in his instructions, advising us to wait 24-48 hours before judging the quality of the water. I'm a bit of a bottled purified water 'brat', but I'm used to our filtered water now. It sure is nice not to have to drag home gallons of water from the store. Our water seems to have more volume. The dishwasher cleans the dishes on the top rack now and I haven't been scrubbing lime from our shower. All in all, it was a good experience. If anything changes as time progresses, I'll report again.
- Mary M.

They did a wonderful job. We had 3 companies provide estimates.
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
was the lowest price for a system that was exactly the same as the systems the others would have provided. They scheduled the work immediately, showed up on time and did the work in a very professional manner. The owner was present for the installation, showed us how to use it and answered all of our questions. The system has been working beautifully and we're very happy with it.
- Lori J.

I was very impressed with
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
. When he came to our house he was very easy to understand and he walked me through how the water treatment would work a couple of times. He really seemed to know what he was doing. The guys who came out to install were also great. They were able to put the system in and hide the pipes in the wall. I was very happy with with their service. They have also followed up a couple of times to make sure we are happy. We have only had it for about a week and we are pleased with it.
- Noah G.

we've used AHW since we first moved into our new build in 2009, where they installed our first

Called on Friday and service provider (
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
) came on Saturday. Along with fixing the tank pressure we asked him to change the filters - which had not been done since 2013. He had all the equipment and changed out filters, tested water, checked softwater system all in 1 hours time. Quite impressive and nice to deal with.
- Kim S.

I wanted my water softener checked. This company sent someone with a different agenda entirely. The only thing he did to the water softener was reset the timer. The ad promised other services like checking the pipes. This person had only one thing in mind: selling me a $2000 whole house water filtration system.

We had called
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
and Mechanical under recommendations from Lakeshore Heating and Sheet metal (our HVAC Contractor). We had set up a time to meet and
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and quoted us a price on he spot. We called a few weeks later to set up a time for install. I had contacted
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
a few days later to ask if we could move up the install and he had agree to doing so.
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
had called back the next week to ask if we were going to be available the next day. I had asked that he call to give notice before showing up and he agreed.
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
contacted my wife an hour before he was going to arrive. He and his associate showed up at (10) a.m. and were finished by (11). They removed the old water heater and made sure the job site was just how it was when they had arrived.
They were both extremely respectful, clean and courteous.

explained the unit and it's specifics very well. He answered all of our questions.
I would recommend

- Jeremy K.

We had used Pure Products service at our personal residence and were pleased with his service. We have rentals so we kept his information for future service. I called to ask if he would install an under sink water filtration unit that we had and if he worked in the MidWest City area. He said yes and said he could do it wed at 1:00. I could not meet him so I ask if he could come at 3:00. I knew my tenant could be home around that time.
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
said yes.
I spoke with
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
tuesday evening and told him my tenant gets off work at 2:45 and was about 15 min away and would come there right after work so if he was a few minutes late to know tenant was on his way.
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
said OK...I'll be there at 3:00.
I called tenant on Wednesday to verify that he would be there at 3:00 to meet
Salem Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
. Tenant confirmed that he would. He called me at 3:45 and said he was at the property at 2:58 but no one ever showed. I called

and got voice mail so I let him know that my tenant called and said no one came and I was wondering what happened and hoped nothing was wrong. He never returned my call.
