Reviews for Ashburn water softener installers
Michael S.
Dennis installed a home water filter and softener system. The entire process was top notch. He came in and tested our water, made a recommendation and gave us an estimate then installed it a few days later. Afterwards the install team cleaned up and left no trace beyond the new system. As for them price it was very reasonable. We have already noticed much less particulate in the water within a day of the install. Communication with staff was extremely good throughout the process. We were notified of scheduling well in advance and they called 15 minutes before arriving to give us warning. We definitely were impressed and pleased with the work of Veteran Plumbing Service and would not hesitate to hire them for future jobs.

Overall positive experience with Dennis. I had bought water softener and filter systems and was looking for a good plumbing service as my house was not pre-plumbed to setup this system. Dennis stopped by and gave an estimate(reasonable price) and explained what needs to be done. I thought for couple days and confirmed him upon reading the reviews. He was very professional and had a thorough experience and knowledge on what he was doing. The next day of installation, I observed minute droplets leakage from one of the ball valve and water pressure was low. He stopped by the very next day and fixed it. I would definitely recommend Dennis.

What you need to know about water softeners.

How much does it cost to install a whole house water softener?

Installing a water softener with help from a professional specializing in water softener installation costs approximately $800-$2,000. Your price depends on your location, the size and type of unit you choose and how long it takes the water softener company to complete the job. 

What size water softener do I need?

The average home requires a 32,000-grain water softener. However, you may need a softener with a higher grain capacity depending on several factors. For example, even if your home is smaller but if you use a lot of water or have especially hard water, the water softener company may have specific recommendations for the size and type of unit you should purchase. 

Call a few companies and ask them to provide information about the right size softener for your home. 

Which brand of water softener is the best?

The best water softener for your home or business is determined by your budget and preferences. Whirlpool, Waterboss, GE, Rheem, Pelican Water and DuraWater tend to appear on annual “best water softener” lists. 

Each area of the country and each individual community has special water issues that a high-quality water softener may help mitigate. A local water softener professional can provide you with their opinion about the type, size and model of unit that works best for your home.

How long should water softener last?

Water softeners typically last 20 years, but it's important to maintain and service your system with help from a water softener professional. 

Is it worth repairing a water softener?

If your water softener is malfunctioning but it's less than five years old, contact the water softener installation company and ask if it's under warranty. If your unit is more than 10-20 years old, you may want to spend the money to replace it with a newer unit that has a warranty instead of putting money into potentially expensive repairs. When in doubt, contact a professional for their opinion.

How do I choose a water softener?

Water softeners are designed to treat varying levels of hard water. It's important to consult a professional when choosing a water softener. They can test your water and recommend a model that may work well for your water type and budget. Talk with them about any special considerations, such as excessive water use in your family. 

Water softener installation isn't typically a DIY job, so lean on professionals to help you choose and install the unit that best fits your needs.
