"I use this company annually to replenish the acid neutralizer in my system, and more recently to replace copper pipe that was starting to fail. As in previous cases" they were on time, competent, fast, and did exactly what they said they were going to do for the quoted price. I have no complaints and will continue to use the company.

"Work was completed to satisfaction. They took their time to answer any questions and address any concerns. Even wanted me and my husband to see the process of" how the carbon gets cleaned and then replaced. They also tested my water.. Very thorough and professional. Would definitely use again. My only problem was when they were running quite behind I never received a phone call. telling me they would be late. When I shared this with them, they did apologize. Other than this, everything else went exceptionally well. Overall, AN EXCELLENT JOB.

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.

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

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.

Everything went perfectly.

came out explained the systems provided by their company. I had already done extensive research on water systems.
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
made the same recommendations as numerous websites and reviewers. He was very knowledgeable and professional. We gave a deposit and scheduled installation. The usual installer was out suddenly, so
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
installed the system himself. After installation, he explained how the system works, what we needed to do and their follow-up service. The system is small and fits perfectly in the location provided when we purchased the home. It took him about two hours to do everything. He cleaned up all materials and debris from the installation. I'm a very happy client.

will call once a month, when their tech is in the area. They will check the system at no charge and add any consumable supplies needed for a nominal fee. The fee is for the supplies only and is slightly higher than I could buy for in a home store, but I would have to get the supplies, test the system and add the supplies myself. For a few more dollars per bag of supplies, I'm happy they'll take the

on themselves, all while insuring the system is functioning optimally, as designed.

Let me start by saying that
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
saved me about $3000 by being honest about the state of my water system. I had had a competitor's system installed to address odors when we moved to our house ten years ago, and had fallen a bit behind on maintenance and had never had the carbon unit rebedded (recommended every 5 years or so). I was finally able to afford it, and had the (previous) maintenance company come out to get the process started. They explained that they were trying to move everyone off of the system I have because the technology has improved, the carbon filter was bigger and would last longer between rebeds, and so on, and gave me estimates for "good" (keeping the system but performing the carbon rebed and regular maintenance - $1200), "better" (replacing most of the components of the system - $2700) and "best" (replacing the entire system - $4000). They made it sound pretty convincing that it was worth upgrading, and I was considering it. Then my mom found
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
here on Angie's List and suggested I give him a call, just in case he had any better options.
Well!
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
returned my call within an hour and offered to drop by right then to take a look at my system. It turned out that was more than familiar with it; he had worked for the competitor for 25 years and actually designed it. (He had even performed the annual maintenance on it at our house one year, too.) He walked me through each and every component to tell me what it did, how it worked, what could go wrong with it and what kind of maintenance it requires, and he explained why the new system the competitor was recommending was not actually going to be an improvement. He said he would be happy to upgrade my system for me too if I really wanted to, but it really only needed the carbon rebedding and $75 in parts to get back in tip-top shape. When I asked about pricing on the carbon rebedding, his quote came in almost $300 less than the competitor's for the exact same thing. I asked him on the spot when he could start.
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
didn't have everything he needed in the truck that day (I had only called him for quotes after all, and hadn't even expected a call back until the next day!), but he took care of the
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
filters and membrane on that visit and set up an appointment a few days later to take care of the rest. On that day he arrived on time (a few minutes early, even) and took care of the rebed and the pump repair. He was professional, courteous, and was even nice enough to answer my 4-year-old son's non-stop questions about what he was doing. He went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable with my knowledge of the system and that I knew what to expect from each component in the future. Best of all, I really feel like I got treated fairly. I'm embarrassed that the competitor took advantage of me for so long, but I'm so glad to have found a place I can trust from now on.

Great guy showed up, adjusted softner settings, added salt, tested water, and explained system to me. Original plumber had the settings wrong which resulted in regeneration occuring too frequently. I have saved much more than the cost of this service in salt costs alone. Wish I had known about them when I had the original system installed. Highly recommend this company.

We recently had a major kitchen renovation and decided to move away from the

system we were using. The

tech that came out ran a test on our system and said our water softener was great and there was no reason to change anything yet. We did however go with their K5 reverse osmosis system and couldn't be happier. The quality and taste of the water beats what we can get from the store or through a bottling system. Highly recommend

We bought a house that has one of those old school Fleck style water softener with a separate resin tank and salt tank. It worked our first two years and then twice it dumped salt water all over our garage. I flipped it on bypass and called 3 different places asking them to troubleshoot it. All the other companies took one look at the old softener and pretty much right away said I need to replace the system to the tune of $1200-$1600 at least. I figured I'd sleep on it for a couple months until I was ready to fork it over. Gave
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
a call and
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
showed up. He looked at the system and said it's a system that he services and offered to fix it vs. selling me a new system that he also brought in his car.
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
spent about 2 hours pulling the resin tank out and replaced it with new resin and also replaced various worn component in the timer valve, which was the primary cause of the backwash being blocked and dumping salt water on the floor. He also reset the settings properly for our family usage and even swapped out with a new transformer for the timer. I appreciated
Gainesville Water Softener Companies Provider Name Locked
and his company's honesty in providing a fix without my asking vs right away trying to sell me a new system right off the bat. That alone deserves my praise and my recommendation to anyone seeking work on their water softener - old or new.
