Questions To Ask of Dealers & Installers of Water Treatment Systems in Marin County CA 


When choosing among water treatment system dealers or installers in Marin County CA, ask these questions about their experience, methods and material options, technical expertise, and guarantees or warranties.

  
• How long have the water treatment company been installing systems in Marin County CA? (The longer they have been installing water treatment systems in your specific area could suggest greater experience with the local water conditions and water treatment solutions required.)


• How many water treatment systems have they installed just like yours, i.e. home water filtration vs commercial, UV sterilizers vs reverse osmosis vs water distillers, etc?


• Can the water treatment company give you names and numbers of previous customers you can call as references? (All companies for water treatment systems in Marin County CA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had customer references called  by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do they provide you a choice among different options for water treatment systems, such as water conditioners vs water softeners vs water filters, etc. or do they advocate and supply only one kind of solution?


• What are their qualifications or education related to water treatment?



• Do they provide you a choice among different manufacturers? If they use or represent only one manufacturer, what are the benefits of that one over all the others?

• How long do they guarantee their work for and is it in writing?

• Aside from their own guarantees, what are the manufacturer warranties?

• Can the water treatment system installers prove that all workers sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All installers of water treatment systems in Marin County CA bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Do they have active workers' compensation and general liability insurance for your protection? (All installers of water treatment systems in Marin County CA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Who besides the water treatment system dealer will actually be performing the installation? Are they permanent employees, what are their personal qualifications and experience and how long have they worked for the dealer?


• Will the dealer be performing all the installation and/or maintenance themselves or will they be subcontracting any part of it out, and if so, to whom? This is particularly relevant in the case of companies that do water filter or water treatment sales only, who then subcontract out for the installation.

• How long will installation take to complete once it is begun?

• What are the estimated annual operating and maintenance costs to you for the water treatment system they are recommending?

• Will they show you proof of their state license to perform as water treatment system installers, since that is required by state law? (All installers of water treatment systems in Marin County CA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their state license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)


• Can the water treatment company give you names and numbers of past customers who had the same kind of fence done who you can call as references? (All water treatment companies in Marin County CA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Will they give you a written estimate that is completely itemized, including the model name and number being quoted, and amount of any related material?  (This is important because cheap water treatment companies in Marin County CA often only seem cheap because they are using lower quality items that will cost you more in repairs, premature replacement or maintenance later.)

• Do they see an obvious change you could make to your specifications that would significantly lower the cost of the estimate, and if so, what would you be giving up in performance? Similarly, do they see a big gain in performance or reduction of annual operating costs that can be gained for just a little bit more money?


• Will permits be required? If so, will the water treatment installers get those or is that up to you to do?

When you've chosen the best water treatment company in Marin County CA for your specific needs and priorities, make sure they have a good complaint record. (All installers of water treatment systems in Marin County CA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their good complaint record verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
