Outstanding from beginning estimate to final installation. Staff were all professional, knowledgeable, and polite. I just moved from my home where I had an older generation water softener for 13 years. During that time there I had no plumbing or appliance issues due to hard water. That investment 13 years ago saved me hundreds of dollars. I just recently moved into an older home in Escondido and it did not have a water softener system, however it did have one of those expensive "whole house" water filter systems by Lifesource. I thought cool, a whole house water filter system, however I was shocked at how hard the water was, smell, and just not good quality compared to what I had before. Dishwasher, Ice maker, clothes washer, faucets, shower heads, hot water heater all showed signs of excessive water mineral build up with the Lifesource system. The best it seemed to do was remove the chlorine and that wasn't very efficient because water municipalities are now also adding ammonia to the water also with chlorine for bacteria control. So I spent 3 months researching new systems knowing I wanted true water softening along with filtering. I came across the Charger water treatment pro series and called Jaye at All Cities Water Treatment for an appointment. This system is incredible, and more advanced in regard to digital automation, and monitoring needs of the household based upon demand. It's also much more efficient in terms of waste water and regeneration resulting in much less waste. Bottom line, the Charger system does everything the "whole house" systems claim and much more because you also get true soft water. Amazing, and I started feeling and tasting the difference within 24 hours after installation. I do handyman services throughout the San Diego market any many of my plumbing and appliance jobs are because of the very hard water here. So, I highly recommend to anyone looking to save a lot of your hard earned $$ to invest in one of these systems as it will preserve your plumbing and appliances for years and you'll also enjoy better tasting water, better laundry, better soap lather with less soap, and more. Best small investment a home owner can make with great returns also if you ever decide to sell.
