Water Softener- Water Conditioner Information and General Price Comparisons:
We do not represent any soft water companies mentioned here other than Budget Water®. If any company mentioned has a trademark or logo they want shown here, just let our webmaster know at: email@example.com, they will accommodate you in any way possible in most cases. We think most of the companies we mention here are reputable as a rule. But each individual water treatment dealer, in each city and town, is only as good as its dealer. They are PEOPLE. You compare, you decide.
For example: We do actually carry some brand name components from other companies. We have Aftermarket RO replacement filters such as the AC 30 Thin Film Membrane and the RS-23-SED 5 Filter.
Have you had one of those local companies come in and try to sell you water softener and a drinking water system for $3000-$6000? We can usually give you the same, or better, quality of water for under $1000 in most cases. REMEMBER: You should NEVER let someone come into your home and test your water if they sell water equipment. Those are salesmen working for large commissions; if they don't sell they starve! You should always get INDEPENDENT testing outside the home from companies who DO NOT sell water equipment, such as the county or an independent lab. If you simply have no other option send it to us, we will test it for free and NEVER ask you to buy anything. We are not allowed to ask you for an order. We just answer your questions and feel that if you want to make a purchase you will let us know. And never, EVER buy on the first night. What would your mother say? She would say think about it and sleep on it before you buy anything. If it is a good idea today it will be a good idea tomorrow. Don't fall for special prices and silly cheap soaps designed to "pressure" you in to buying tonight! They know if you don't buy emotionally tonight you never will after you shop around. They are desperate to sell to you on the first visit.

Who Is The Best?
BEST ONLINE COMPANY:
BUDGET WATER® (www.budgetwater.com)
The reason why: Budget Water® sells premium brand equipment made of only the finest name brand components built to an industry standard (you can get replacement parts anywhere). Our tech support staff sets the standard for water treatment applications. We understand city water applications are different in each city and ONE SIZE does not fit all. On well water application we are the experts in the field. We can solve iron, sulfur and manganese issues without the use of salt or chemicals. We are the originators of the best chemical and salt free iron filters on the internet and no one still comes close to doing correctly of all the copycat companies. We can do all of this at a mere fraction of the cost of in home sales companies and for less than all other online companies. And we get it right every time or we don't sell it. We also offer tech support to our customers 7 days per week.
Beware companies that sell magnets and alloys promising that they will make your water soft. We haven't found any that pass a single test. Also beware companies that mix different media in their softeners and filter tanks such as carbon. Such as mixing acid neutralizer materials in with softeners or iron filters. Or companies that mix Pyrolox and Carbon together for example. Also beware companies bragging about the use of other carbons such as coconut carbon. That carbon may have trouble absorbing heavy metals and other substances though it lasts a bit longer than activated carbon. And it is extremely expensive to replace.
BEST IN HOME SALES COMPANY:
The reason why: While a lot of companies who sell in the home get themselves on national news TV programs for making unusual or misleading claims and promises, we have never seen a Culligan® representative caught doing this. In fact on programs we see about such things if a Culligan® rep is caught on camera he is not saying something misleading or untrue. We respect that. They call hardness what it is; which is hardness. Many companies call hardness "impurities" or insinuate that hardness is something else. Culligan® equipment is made of high quality components. It is our opinion that if you are not going to buy from us and decide to buy from a local in-home sales company, Culligan® is probably the way to go. They are more expensive than we are but usually do offer installation as an added convenience. We rarely see their dealers selling softeners (or conditioners) for $4000-$6000 like a lot of local companies do. The other thing we respect about the Culligan® brand is they rarely use high pressure telemarketers like most in home sales companies do. They have also showed a sense of pride. They stand behind their name as we stand behind ours.
NOTE: While Culligan® is a reputable company they still are represented by individual private dealers. You should check out each dealer individually before making a purchase. Please feel free to contact us for an evaluation of what a dealer has offered you. But don't expect us to talk them down. Besides we are still the highest quality at the lowest price; period!
WHO IS THE WORST? (And Why)
Magnet companies, salt free softener companies, alloy companies, in-home sales companies and companies that sell twin softener units that do not have electronic brains (non-electric) draw the most complaints here. It is our opinion that companies that mix any sort of carbon in the main tank of their softeners are ones to watch out for. Now there are a few companies that mix cation softener resins with anion softener resins saying it removes chlorine (Water Tech). What they don't tell you is that these units can lower your pH and make the water acidic. Be really careful you ask these questions before buying from one of these companies. Canada is going after the Magnet companies with a vengeance for making false claims.

WATCH OUT FOR TELEMARKETERS AND IN HOME SALES COMPANIES:
There are some soft water companies that will sell you ordinary softeners all day long for city water. Knowing full well that they breakdown in heavily chlorinated water supplies and eventually cause the resin (softening media inside) to reduce in quantity. The result being that the unit will now use much more salt to function. Or not function properly or efficiently. The people selling you salt love it! Some national brand companies seem to mostly sell "softeners only" on city water that is heavily chlorinated. Almost never with a carbon tank to remove chlorine. Other companies have a habit of putting carbon inside softening units that have softening media in the same tank and calling them "conditioners". They mix together (we call this "tank sprinkling"). The carbon is almost IMPOSSIBLE to remove from the softening media thereafter. It MUST be REMOVED and replenished periodically or it can make your water WORSE. How are you going to remove it? Some dealers seem to offer separate carbon tanks. This is a much better application. If you have the money. Some soft water companies' equipment seems to be of great quality and the warranties (usually parts only) are good. However, the equipment is very expensive. Most of these companies seem to have no national price limits to speak of. Each soft water dealer seems to sell it for what ever he wants. We find it amazing how many people tell us they bought $3500 or greater cost unit from some of these companies and then when they tried to cancel the order, after feeling a bit of buyers remorse, the equipment was the offered at a greatly reduced rate. Sometimes less than 1/2 the original price. Be careful. City water treatment should almost NEVER cost more than $1000 for household and drinking water filtration. Well water is slightly higher as a rule, but not always. Well water has many more things that can be wrong. Well water is sometimes more difficult to treat because: You really have to know what's in it to test for it and treat it. Most people cannot afford to test for everything. But rarely does it cost thousands and thousands of dollars like a MAJORITY of these companies charge. Also, watch out for the soft water "SOAP SELL". That is where a water treatment company gives you a multi year supply of soap products to get you to buy water equipment TONIGHT. Don't fall for that one. That should be your first warning alarm that you are going to spend a fortune! We used to offer soap products here but found out that when given the choice, most people prefer their own soap products after the sales pitch wears off a few days later. And our customers tell us that their name brand products work far better than the ones offered by these soap companies. Also keep in mind that most of these soap products offered are NOT anti bacterial or hypo allergenic as some sales people might claim. For instance the Liquid Soap Products brand offered by the "Rain" softener brands and some others, is not hypo allergenic or anti bacterial. You know that brand because they offer "Peaches and Cream" hand and body soap. The most common companies we see using this soap sell tactic are the Hague®, Rain softener brands, Rayne® and "K" Brand softening brands. Even though there are many others as well.
WARNING: Beware of any company that tries to pressure you, IN ANY WAY, to buy on the first contact of you, by their company. With cash discounts or soap products or "demo units" or what ever. If it is a good deal tonight, it will be a good deal tomorrow. A "one time only" price is usually for fools. Wouldn't you agree? Think about it. Sleep on it.....
IMPORTANT FACTS, PROS and CONS, WARNINGS:
Demand or Timer? Demand regeneration (the way the unit cleans or replenishes itself) is when the unit regenerates depending on how many gallons you use. Timer is when you have a unit that regenerates at a specified time (or times) each week. The demand unit is more efficient, but also more expensive to buy initially. Usually you need to have 2 or more people in the household for the savings to warrant the expense of upgrading to the demand unit. Some companies go out of their way to "hype" computer units. They are simply "demand" or "metered" and in fact many computers are very expensive to replace should they fail. The choice is simply: Demand or timer, period. Salt usage for the average family of four, on our average softener, on the average water (7-10 grains) tells us they add salt about every 7-8 months. Some families less, some families more. It depends entirely on your families water usage and the quality of your water.

* "Rain" softener brands means a number of different soft water companies that might have the word "Rain" or "Rayne®" in their name (or many different variations of these names) or possibly in their product name, including the ones with the word "Soft" in their name. The quality of these different companies' dealers applications and equipment may vary widely from poor to high quality. Be careful that you check out these companies thoroughly when purchasing these different "Rain", or "Rayne® soft water units. Some companies are good, some may not be so good. Sometimes the best salesman might work for the worst type of dealer. Think about that for a moment. The bottom line is why spend thousands for the quality of water you can buy for hundreds? Feel free to give us a call for our evaluation of the equipment each individual dealer may be offering. It amazes us sometimes how they may sell really marginal equipment at a really high price.
If you have a bad experience after you have encountered these types of companies, or are aware of them in any way, please feel free to give us a call for a discussion of your situation. In some cases we can put you in touch with the manufacturers phone numbers and addresses so you can contact them directly to complain or seek satisfaction. Many times it is not the "brand" that is at fault, but the individual dealer. You can make a difference. You may be able to help someone else avoid these types of issues. Sometimes the best thing to do is put their name on message boards describing your experience, so that anyone doing a search on their name can see what you think of them. A good one we have seen is www.complaints.com. Please keep an eye out for our new message board that is coming soon. Stay tuned.... Thank you.
