Nice product. Easy install.
Was delivered extremely quick and install was a breeze. Great product and company.
Water very soft love it ,easy install. Thanks
We knew we wanted/needed a water softener for our newly constructed home. Our plumber already had us set up for it (by bypassing the sprinkler system when he designed our plumbing) now it was time to decide what product fit our needs. We had consultants from local vendors come in and give us quotes and product choices but to add comfort to what they told us we decided to do our own homework and as a result found Discount Water Softeners. From our first call we knew this was an exceptional company but we kept calling and they kept answering our questions, returning our calls, clarifying our issues with engineering and helping us with every single strand of this decision process. We decided on the Genesis 2 upflow softener. We brought our plumber back and the install was as easy as their YouTube video illustrates. The change we saw in our water was felt in one day. The water test confirmed it. Could not be happier. We saved significant money buying direct. We honestly felt better going with this company than with a company that comes in with their “pitch” and limited product choices. I cannot stress enough how outstanding their customer service is. It left such a great impression we have been singing their praises to family and friends ever since. We already have two families making the calls done their own purchase. A softener decision is a once in a many years selection and we are so confident we made the right one thanks to the ladies and gentlemen at DWS.com. Support. Knowledge. Care. Concern. Post purchase support and answers to every single question imaginable. Bravo to this company and our sincere thanks too.
The whole process has been very good. Started out asking questions on the phone. Answers were helpful and knowledgeable. Their web site was good, useful and had the answers I was looking for. I ordered on line and that went very well. Received in 3 days. Packaged well. Took me three days to install because I set up the new one in advance (electronics) and a few connections. Also needed to prepare to disconnect my old one. Even though I did it over 3 days, that was my choice. Actual time to get it done from start to finish, doing it all at once, was about 3 hours. Customer videos on web site were very helpful and easy to understand. It has been running now for about 2 weeks and seems to be doing the job. Based on this point in time, I would have no hesitation in doing it again. I do recommend this company and product.
This product was easy to install after working out the plumbing to the appliance. Seems to be a much better quality with more options than other softeners. Works great so far! Free shipping, and quick/easy replacement of one part that was damaged in shipping. Overall very happy, and will recommend to others!
Thanks for offering this product
I was very satisfied with this product and this company during every step of the purchase. I did enquire with questions up front and received quick responses. After researching this and other water softeners I concluded this was the best product for the money. I purchased the item on a Monday and it was delivered that Wednesday, free shipping! The installation was easy since I had already removed an existing unit from my basement so the plumbing was already in place. The Quick Connect fittings made connecting the unit to my plumbing a breeze and they are very well made. Finally, the instructions and videos made setup and programming easy. I did get a water test prior to installation.
I installed this softener 1 month ago. The difference in the water is amazing. I also placed a sediment filter inline prior to the softener because I am on a community well utility. Sometimes when they switch wells, the water has a lot of sediment in it and I didn't want that going into my tank. I'm the only one in my household and the control head says I am still 700 gallons from regeneration. I'm happy with that. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the slowness for service staff to respond. 24-48 hours is pretty ridiculous especially if you are in the middle of a DIY install. Luckily I had nothing major and got through it. I understand the covid situation guys but I am self employed and answer every single email and phone call on a daily basis. If you can't go through them and prioritize, add an "installation in progress" button to your contact form. Overall it was a good experience. I would recommend.
