Water Treatment System Sales Tactics:

The following is an article about poor sales tactics and marginal water filter and water softener applications you will see from in home sales companies and marginal online companies. First we list tactics you may find on municipal water supplies (city water). Following that we list private well water marginal tactics. Please don't hesitate to give us a quick call for a quick evaluation of your issue. Keep in mind our technicians are not allowed to ask you to buy anything or pressure you in ANY way. They just answer your questions and give you great advice. We are the online leader for water treatment worldwide.

WATER TEST TACTICS

City Water Tactics:

IN HOME SALES PEOPLE:

Have you ever had a telemarketer call you and offer you some sort of "Free Gift" along with a free water test with "No Obligation?" Well the obligation is you have to listen to the complete sales pitch for a water treatment system often lasting 2 to 4 HOURS! Many people describing how it is almost impossible to get them out of your house unless you say yes to them. Now one company even has Home Depot scavenging leads from their customers to set you up for sales calls where these companies will try and sell you a water softener system for $5000 to $8000 dollars. Don't be fooled. Please don't hesitate to give us a quick call for a quick evaluation of your issue. Keep in mind our technicians are not allowed to ask you to buy anything or pressure you in ANY way. They just answer your questions and give you great advice. We are the online leader for water treatment worldwide.

DRINKING SOFT WATER

The number one thing to watch out for is companies who sell water softeners but never tell you that you should not drink from them.

For more information on this subject please click the link on the left that says "Drink Soft Water".

CARBON "SPRINKLING" IN WATER SOFTENERS:

There are several in home sales companies and now even unscrupulous online companies who add carbon to their softener tanks. This is a dumb thing to do!

To read more about this marginal tactic please click on the link to the left that says "Carbon Sprinkling".

THE "SOAP SELL":

Many companies are using this tactic to justify incredibly high prices for their equipment, especially water softeners. It can be very misleading. They go out and buy really inexpensive soap products from off brand soap companies for generally $100 to $200 and then tell prospective buyers that they are worth thousands of dollars.

NON ELECTRIC HOUSEHOLD SOFTENERS:

Spending thousands of dollars buying a non-electric water softener is normally just plain foolish; especially the ones with twin tanks where the sales person tells you that while one is cleaning itself you can still take a shower with the other tank because you have 24 hour per day soft water. This is just plain nonsense.

To read more about this click on the link to the left that says "Non Electric Units". 

WELL WATER SALES TACTICS:

If you are the owner of a private well you need to be particularly careful as there are far more unethical applications and many more people trying to confuse you into buying something that will be nothing but headaches and expensive ongoing service calls for many years to come. We see so many amazingly bad applications on private wells that it simply boggles the mind. Companies selling carbon filters for example. They do this to generate residual income for themselves for many years at YOUR expense. We virtually never use carbon on a private well. It is the number one breeder of bacteria on non-chlorinated well water. And if you are chlorinating there is still virtually no reason for expensive carbon replacements as there are other superior filter methods that require no ongoing carbon replacement and are virtually maintenance free. You can read about many of these marginal, if not entirely unethical methods below. Please don't hesitate to give us a quick call for a quick evaluation of your issue. Keep in mind our technicians are not allowed to ask you to buy anything or pressure you in ANY way. They just answer your questions and give you great advice. We are the online leader for water treatment worldwide.

NEVER USE A SOFTENER AS AN IRON FILTER:

Many companies use this "Slick Willy" tactic to purposely make a softener use massive amounts of salt and require many future service calls to fix equipment and softener minerals that have become "Iron Bound" from improperly using a water softener as an iron filter.

To read more about this tactic please click on the link to the left that says "Iron"

BIRM FILTERS AND AIR INJECTORS:

While we sell backwashing birm filters and air injectors we find them marginal in comparison to state of the art oxidizing filters such as the "Terminox™ ISM" backwashing well water filtration systems. Birm filters have MANY drawbacks.

To read more about this please click on the link to the left that says "Birm"

GREENSAND FILTERS- BUYERS BEWARE!

We have greensand available for sale but we try not to sell it unless nothing else will work. Sometimes on really low flow rates with extreme iron issues we may have to, but that is normally reserved for commercial applications.

To read more about this please click on the link to the left that says "Greensand"

 PYROLOX MISCONCEPTIONS:

As the innovators of Pyrolox online we have literally thousands of these units installed around the country and around the world. We know what they can and CAN'T do. Beware of companies who use Pyrolox as their MAIN LINE of iron and sulfur filters. Pyrolox is inferior in most cases.

To read more please click on the link to the left that says "Pyrolox"

ACID NEUTRALIZERS AS IRON FILTERS

Acid neutralizers are made to do one thing and one thing only. They are made to raise pH in low pH water. You should virtually NEVER use a backwashing acid neutralizer tank for iron removal in any proper application. And you should never mix pH increasing minerals in ANY iron tank.

CARBON TANKS - Well Water vs. City Water.

Carbon tanks have NO PLACE on private wells for the most part. Many in home sale companies and now even online companies are starting to use these filters on well water. Bad mistake!

UNNECESSARY USAGE OF RETENTION TANKS

Many companies mistakenly use retention tanks for iron, sulfur and manganese issues. This is ridiculous.

PELLET CHLORINATORS 

You should NEVER use a pellet chlorinator where iron bacteria or sulfur is present. It is one of the biggest scams in this industry. Please don't hesitate to give us a quick call for a quick evaluation of your issue. Keep in mind our technicians are not allowed to ask you to buy anything or pressure you in ANY way. They just answer your questions and give you great advice. We are the online leader for water treatment worldwide.

CHEMICAL FEEDERS FOR SULFUR, IRON and MANGANESE

There is no need for chemical feeders for these applications unless there is iron bacteria or e-coli or coliform present.

To read more please click on the link to the left that says "Chem Feeder"

IRON BACTERIA

Iron bacteria can be a real problem for water treatment equipment and filters. In can clog them quickly and make filters intended to oxidize and filter, stop oxidizing.
