I was a victim of Rainsoft a few years ago and continue to today, but no more.
The Rainsoft salesman lied and high pressured me to purchase an outrageously over-priced water conditioner, or commonly called water softener, claiming that my water needed conditioning in order to save the house plumbing from corrosion, and soap, water, and shampoo.
He tested the water on the spot and recommended this over-priced water conditioning system on the spot for a ridiculous amount of money at the time, and if I purchased today they would discount the price about $1,000.
I fell for it and agreed, because at the time I knew no better. [continued below]....
Little did I know that what he called a water conditioner was just a common water softener, which Sears sold for 1/3 the price. Also, they insisted that the conditioner needed maintenance service every 2 years, to replace the resin tank and check system out, blah, blah, blah. This cost approx. $200 and keeps going up in future. I managed to go myself to the service headquarters and exchange my used tank for a fresh one once, for about half the cost, but it was too time consuming for me, so they have been doing the service last couple yrs.
I decided to do research on water softeners, and I found out that the cation resin in the tank should last 20 yrs., minimum 10 yrs. with no problem.
It seems they add carbon, which breaks down the resin prematurely, and therefore the 2 yr. maintenance call. Bastards! They create problem and fix problem, to charge you $$$
Stay away from Rainsoft, thinking about a lawsuit!!
