I bought a house that had a $3000.00 Rainsoft water softener installed in 2003. The water softener was last serviced in 2006. It was turned off at least 2 years ago. I have no idea if it works. The salt tank is filled with water. Should I pay Rainsoft to come out and service this unit to see if it works ? From all the complaints I've read about Rainsoft, I am not sure I want to get involved with this company.
Sears has a water softener marked down from $649.00 to $449.00. It has a digital reader so you can see when salt is needed. In order to install it, would I have to remove the Rainsoft unit ? Is it a big deal to remove the Rainsoft unit ?
I saw a Waterboss that is very easy to install. Since I don't plan to buy a service contract and will have my handyman service the unit, would this be the easiest route to take ? My handyman doesn't know anything about water softeners but he can figure out most anything, especially with a manual.
Your comments will be most appreciated.
