Dessert homeowners deal with the problems of extremely hard water on a daily basis. Hard water minerals coat pipes and adversely affect the function of water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators, coffeemakers, and other water-using appliances. Hard water minerals leave ugly scum on tubs, showers, shower doors, faucets, and fixtures, and they leave their mark on dishes, glassware, and silverware. Also, hard water just doesn’t work well with soaps and detergents, so soap doesn’t rinse completely from hair, skin, dishes, and clothes.
Water treatment companies are all too aware that Phoenix homeowners are looking for solutions, therefore, many companies have flooded the local Phoenix market to make a profit. It’s a “buyer beware” situation. How do you know that you are buying the best water softener Phoenix has on the market, and how do you know you aren’t getting “taken”?
Compare water systems. There is a big difference between the quality, service, and price that you’ll receive from box stores, proprietary franchises, and independent distributors. You’ll find low quality and low priced water softener systems at box stores. Be careful of these products, because they are usually imported from overseas and constructed using inferior parts. Furthermore, these cheap systems are not built to deal with the rigorous demands of treating the extremely hard water found in the Phoenix area. Service is also an issue—You’ll don’t want to end up talking with someone in a foreign call center instead of receiving a service call from a local.
Proprietary franchises are those businesses that will all-too-gladly stick you with an extremely high bill for water softener systems, their installation, and their repair. They use hard-sell tactics—a salesman comes to your home, wastes your time with a 2+ hour presentation, and then tries to get you to buy with their “good for today only” discounts, throwing in some extra boxes of soap to sweeten the deal. Sure, the system may be of good quality, and the company may be available for local installation and service calls, but do you really want to get snared into buying an overpriced system?
Independent distributors are to be trusted for your water treatment needs. They are local, pride themselves on their experience, and can ensure that you are receiving the best service and product, at reasonable, competitive prices. They know which water softener systems that will best handle the extreme hard water mineral content in the greater Phoenix area. And they don’t resort to sales gimmicks, pressuring you to make a purchase decision when you need a bit of time to think about it.
