If you ever get a call from a company claiming to be from Home Depot offering a water test for your home, hang up immediately! Florida Energy Water & Air (aka Rainsoft) calls homeowners to set up a no obligation free water test. They intend on selling you a water softner and air purifier for $8000 which by the way costs them less than $600, h**l of a mark up!
They will use simple water tests to convince you that your water is terrible and a health risk. The first test is what they call a 'Precipitation test'. This test is conducted using a sample of water straight from your tap and a 2nd sample of your tap water after being passed thru the miniature Rainsoft conditioner. They will add 2 chemicals to each sample that will coat what they call impurities in the waterand make them settle to the bottom of the jar.
These so-called impurities that you are seeing in the jar is nothing more than calcium. The salesperson will try to tell you that what you are seeing is a host of dangerous chemicals such as arsenic, cyanide, chromium etc... This is not true, dont believe it!
The next thing they do is try to scare you that the chlorine in the water will give you cancer! They will show you quotes from news agencies but will not validate these quotes from medical sources such as JAMA. Scare tactic!
The salesperson will also try to show you how much money you are wasting fighting your current dangerous water conditions. This is done to close you on a monthly payment. Use common sense here people.
The bottom line is you can get soft water by purchasing a water softner for around $300 at any local home improvement store instead of being ripped off thousands of dollars by this fraudulant company.
Don't believe me they're trying to rip you off? Sign the contract for $8000 and cancel the next day. They will try to resell the same piece of equipment to you as low as $1000! What does that tell you?
