Recent Review: Excellent - Chuck is amazing. Since he is a master plumber, he sees the big picture. Both he and his wife went above and beyond to make sure we had a great new system but also to help us understand how it worked and how it fit together with other plumbing systems in the house.

Recent Review: This was a great experience. The employees were professional, willing to travel, and educated me along the way so that I knew what I was buying. I had awful tasting water, awful smelling water, and all of my sinks and toilets were terribly stained. The water softener recommended to me has stopped all of this. In addition, the installers were able to recommend a cleaning product so that I could remove the staining that had already occurred.

Reviews in Mount Desert to Install Water Softener

Chuck not only repaired the leak, he also spotted and repaired an error in the original installation that would allow our drinking water to be contaminated. His work was neat and professional. I have had him return to install an on-demand gas water heater and a third time to take care of a plumbing problem caused by a frozen waste line. He arrived when he said he would and I considered his charges well within what I expected to pay.

my issue is, occasionally while watering my garden or using a faucet in the house, the pressure drops off considerably, especially if you flush a toilet. I have high iron in my water and i wanted to see if the pipe from the well was restricted. if the pump can supply plenty of water to the house then maybe the valve and inlet to the tank was restricted, or maybe it's the tank it's self. either way something needs to be done. 1) the "green horn" they sent to my house was not the plumbing guy i was told was the man for the job. he showed up around 9am and was on the phone to his boss the entire time. he disconnected the incoming line but who know what the volume of water was. i don't even think he checked it. 2) if there pump was working properly and there was more the 4gal/min coming from the well then replacing the check valve and fittings to the tank would have been straight forward, or at least take it apart to see if it were plugged. which was the case at my neighbors, who has high iron in the water as well. 3) the last few re-cylces/cleaning the softener did not function properly and it turned the water in the house orange, more so then it was before we installed the softener. which was installed less than a year ago. this never happened and i ended up doing a couple manual flushes. 4) instead of turning the softener to by-pass every time i need to water the garden i would like to install a by-pass line prior to the softener to the spigots. this is about 4' away from the existing supply to the spigot on the west side of the house, which is directly across the east side spigot 30' away. so for a couple "T", some end caps and 35' of tubing they quoted me $550, i don't think the kid even measured the distance. tubing $1 per foot, $10 to $20 in fittings and solder and maybe, maybe, two hours of work...i'll just do it myself. so, their troubleshooting said "maybe it's the head pressure in the well". they turned the water off around 10am left for the day and showed up 5.5hrs later and checked for leaks and let the well "fill up". NO LUCK, they didn't find anything, test anything or fix anything...nor did they offer a possible next step or solution, nope, just a bill for 3.5hrs of laybor at $85/hr...$300 to shut my water off for an entire day! wife couldn't flush toilets or do laundry dishes wash her hands...an hour an a half of work, did nothing, fixed nothing and charged me for 3.5!  I WILL NEVER USE THE GUYS AGAIN.

Our well developed high levels of iron and manganese causing a foul taste and odor. I began doing research online and also contacted the Maine Water Quality people at the state government. So before I called Advanced Quality Water Solutions, I was already armed with a fair amount of knowledge. I knew that the two most common treatments to address this problem were either a standard water softener using salt or this green sand filter which uses the green sand and oxygen to precipitate out the iron and manganese. Since my well water wasn't particularly hard and I didn't want all that salt in my water, I decided to go with the green sand filter. I called the company and spoke to Mr. Winter. I asked him a bunch of questions as if I didn't know anything. He also asked me a bunch of questions and then scheduled a visit to come out and take a look at my well to make sure the problem wasn't being caused by surface water leaking into my well. He dropped a camera down my well to have a look. After his investigation, he recommended this oxidating catalyst system using the green sand filter media. He came over about a week later and installed it. Huge difference in our water quality! It smells and tastes great. Mr. Winter was extremely knowledgeable and professional the whole time. He was patient in answering my questions. He didn't talk down to me and spoke in plain English without using a bunch of technical terms. What I really appreciated was that he took the time to investigate and make sure that a less expensive solution wasn't available. Then he outlined the options for me so I could make the decision. I know that a regular water softener is cheaper but it also requires more maintenance and you have to deal with all that salt. I was very happy with his company and recommend them 100%. He is based in Brunswick but had no problem coming up to the Augusta area and said that he often travels even further than that.
