Reviews in Chicago to Install Water Softener

Affordable Water
5.0
Called in the afternoon to report a sulfur problem, had Josh come out that evening and he was very prepared, professional, and friendly. Demonstrated great expertise and workmanship. Had a new softener and iron filter installed within an hour of him arriving. No more sulfur smell. I will definitely be hiring Affordable Water in the future.

DuPage Water Conditioning
5.0
I had purchased a new water softener online and was looking for a firm to remove the failed softener and hook up the new one. I contacted several Angie's List companies that indicated they offered this service. Most replied they only installed water softeners they sold - the whole package or nothing. One firm actually came out to the house and gave me an estimate that was so ridiculously high - equivalent to the cost of the softener itself - that I could only laugh. Only DuPage gave a reasonable response saying they were familiar with the softener to be installed and they would charge by the hour. The installation specialist, Rich, arrived when he said he would, inspected the old and new softeners and went to work. Within 1.5 hours he had the job completed and the new softener checked out, programmed and running. Rich is a very competent and pleasant professional and DuPage Water is a firm that earns respect.

I found the PSI listing via Angie's List, phoned Matt the owner and connected on first attempt. Received ballpark estimate over the phone and booked appointment for several days later at my convenience. Arrived promptly, work completed promptly including install of water softener and review of the work/appliance. Matt was pleasant to work with and it was exactly what I needed at a reasonable price.

Adam and Jason came out to look over the job and indicated that on of them would be doing the actual work. Jason came back the next week, did a very tidy install, and then explained how the new softener worked.

AMERI-KIM SOFTWATER INC
5.0
Dave originally tried to fix my old softener which wasn't very old, but the cost for a replacement resin tank which was cracked exceeded the cost of a new softener. I had someone else out before which just glanced at the old softener, said it couldn't be fixed, and gave me a high estimate and an hour plus sales pitch for a new one. Needless to say, I'm so glad I called Emir-Kim! Dave put over an hour in trying to fix my old softener and gave me a very reasonable price for replacing it after repairing the old one seemed unreasonable. Dave replaced the tank, made it so one of our outside lines wasn't hooked up to it, and explained the unit to me. He was prompt and professional at all times.

Adam's Water Treatment Inc
5.0
I am relatively new to well water. My water became very rusty and I called Adam and one other company to learn how my system works and get estimates to fix the problem. The popular vendor somewhat explained how things worked and tried to sell me a very expensive softener. On the other hand, Adam came out and explained exactly what everything did - even the mystery third tank I had, which the other vendor couldn't explain. I did in fact need a new softener, but not a $1700 one. My iron filter also needed some new parts. He came back the next day to do the work and was done in four hours. Everything was left clean and he explained how my new softener worked. The best part of working with Adam is that he is as friendly as they come. He's not a pushy salesperson and he's also the one doing the work. I can only wish every contractor is as friendly, honest, and does as good of a job as he does. No doubt I will use him again when necessary.

Adam's Water Treatment Inc
5.0
From the start of the project to completion it was a real pleasure to work with Adam and his plumber. I called Adam and he returned my call that very day to make the initial appointment. Adam arrived on time for the appointment and proceeded check my water with his test kit. He then reviewed the best softener solutions for my needs and I never felt as if he was pressing me to choose one or another. I purchased the water softener of my choice and added an RO drinking water system. The installation went very smoothly, the plumber was on time and easy to work with, and I was extremely pleased with the final results. Bottom line: I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to family or friends! He is truly a pleasure to work with!

Adam's Water Treatment Inc
5.0
Adam did an excellent job. He was very responsive in scheduling an appt to fix our softener as soon as possible, and very knowledgable when he did arrive. He quickly determined the problem, and recommended a new softener, advising us that the softener we had really wasn't designed for well water, nor for the level of hardness we were dealing with. The installation was quick and easy, and he took the time to explain what he did and why, as well as how the softener worked. After running through the initial cycle, he discovered that our ejector pump was also not working properly (first week in the new house), and after explaining that he could fix that as well, he also recommended a great plumber who could do the job for cheaper. Now that's good customer service. I highly recommend Adam's Water Treatment. He is very friendly, knowledgable, and down-to-earth, and has a good way of explaining things to people. Great company.

Fox Valley Water Treatment Systems
5.0
After 9 years the Culligan water softener that was originally installed in my home stopped worked (I'm on a well with a lot of iron in my water) I called Culligan and the price to repair or replace the unit was astronomical. So I called Fox Valley Water Treatment and Ryan came out the next day to look at my unit and do a water test. After testing my water he recommended I replace the broken softener with a new one and also install and Iron Fox iron filter. He gave me a quote on the spot and scheduled the job for the following week. The day of the service Ryan showed up with another technician and they had my old unit out and the new softener and filter installed in under 3 hours. They work GREAT! My wife is extremely happy with the quality of the water now that the iron/rust and smell (sulphur) is gone. Ryan is a great guy and I HIGHLY recommend Fox Valley Water Treatment! They're a fraction of the cost of Culligan or other big names and you get just as good of a product, along with my friendly and knowledgeable service.

1ST GUY SAYS WE NEED NEW SOFTENER, BUT THE IRON FILTER WORKS (AFTER HE BANGS AROUND ON IT). CO-INCIDENTALLY, AFTER SERVICE MAN LEAVES, AND BEFORE SOFTENER IS INSTALLED, THE HOT WATER STARTS SMELLING LIKE SULFUR. NEW WATER SOFTENER INSTALLED BY SOME GUY WHO WAS IN A HURRY. AS A RESULT, HE INSTALLED THE UNIT A GOOD FOOT AWAY FROM THE WALL, AND NOW THAT'S WHERE WE'RE STUCK WITH IT. (ALSO, I HAD TO ASSIST HIM IN CUTTING SOME PIPE, OR HE WOULD HAVE KNOCKED/CUT SOME OTHER PIPES OFF THE WALL.) INSTALLER ALSO COULD NOT GIVE ANY INFO REGARDING HOW MUCH SALT TO ADD OR HOW OFTEN. SERVICEMAN CAME OUT AGAIN TO CHECK WHY OUR WATER STILL SMELLED AND COULD NOT BE OF ANY HELP. HE SAID ALL THEIR EQUIPMENT WAS WORKING. WOULD NOT GIVE US ADVICE ON HOW TO ADJUST SOFTNESS OF WATER, SINCE IN HIS OPINION, IT WAS JUST RIGHT. ALSO TO NOTE: DON'T BOTHER MAKING APPOINTMENTS FOR THE AFTERNOON, BECAUSE THEY JUST LIKE TO COME WHEN THEY FEEL LIKE IT.

Both technicians were incredibly professional. They explained everything they were doing and offered me multiple options from replacing the water heater and the water softener to just bypassing the water softener to help save money.

We had recently replaced our well pump and our water softener was not working correctly and we weren't getting any pressure. John stayed to diagnose the problem (clay in the water softener) and cleaned the water softener and got it working again - (without charging us for his time!!) He came back to reinstall the Iron Fox. Our water is no longer smelly an the rust has been cut significantly!!

I contacted Ray Swartz about lowering the water pressure in my home to make my existing water softener work better. Even though the water softener was not his product he was able to provide advice to help solve the problem. When the need for a water softener replacement arises in the future I would do business with Countryside EcoWater. They are fair, honest and helpful.

There was a delay in removing the water softener due to Covid but after 4 months in hiring a handyman, it was resolved and they came out to recheck the softener to make sure it was working properly. Excellent water softener and free service on it for two years.

Shorewood, IL

Recent Review: It went very well! John who came out to evaluate the whole situation was very professional and extremely helpful. He was the same person who installed the new softener and all went very well. He was very knowledgeable, courteous and polite. He went over everything with us after installing the unit and made sure the salt was put in so we didn't have to deal with those heavy bags. It is a much more energy efficient unit and easier to set/program. Time will tell how much we like this new unit. Right now, (it's only been a week so far :-) ) we are thrilled to have our soft water back!! We were also told it may take up to 4 hot showers to notice the difference, but we noticed the difference right away. So far, great!!! They were recommended to us by someone we trust. We now would recommend this company for any water reconditioning needs. We also found out through this experience, they do "salt " delivery!! Another added PLUS!

Carol Stream, IL

Recent Review: I used to have Nicor Services and had Aquaflow come out for various repairs in the past. I'm no longer under Nicor's plan but was so impressed with the level of service, that I continue to use them. I had a problem with my water softener shutting down, it was continuously regenerating. We had a storm resulting in a power outage and I was not confident that just resetting the timer would fix the problem. I hadn't had service for the unit in a while so called for an appointment. Bogdan came out right on time, was very knowledgeable, reset the timer and explained what to do in the future to save on the service call. He also tested my water to make sure the softener was working properly. Great experience and very conscientious repairman. Will definitely use in future.

Bolingbrook, IL

Recent Review: The experience was good. They gave no problems, they followed up, and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. They were prepared to take the old one out and re-install it. One of the things we particularly liked was the fact that they took the old one out without any issues. They had to come over to our house a couple of times, and they were on time when they said they were going to be here. They did a clean job and they did not damage any of our stuff including the carpets that we have in the basement. Though their price is just a bit high, I think they did a good job and the overall experience was good.

What do customers in Chicago say about Water Softener Installation?

I sent Adam an email over a weekend, asking him to contact me with a quote for a new softener. He called first thing Monday morning; came out to our home later that morning, and had his installer come out early that afternoon. The new softener was installed by mid-afternoon, and has been working flawlessly ever since. Adam is clearly a pro when it comes to softeners. He knew exactly what the problems were with our old -- very old -- unit. He offered to repair it, but recommended a new unit as a better value long term. His installer, Jason, is a highly skilled plumber. Jason removed the old unit quickly, installed the new softener, connected new copper pipes to the water service, and took the old unit away. I would highly recommend Adam and Jason to anyone who is in need of a new or replacement water softener. Both are highly knowledgeable, pleasant to work with, and scrupulously honest.
