I like renting a water softener. The cost per month is fair. If anything goes wrong, or I just want the unit serviced, all I have to do is call and make an appointment. Salt delivery is scheduled by how much I use. When ever I've had a problem with billing it was quickly resolved. The people are friendly and knowledgeable.
I don't like to drink the water that comes Out of the faucet here in Van Wert. A lot of people get their lawns treated by spraying for weeds, and I believe that gets into the ground water. There have been Boil advisories here also. There is also a lot of agriculture in and around town and a lot of cancer. Culligan water taste great it's always cold and it's right there in my kitchen.
Recently a city south west of Fort Wayne near the Wabash River found out that their water is chemically contaminated and they can’t drink it. If that happens to Fort Wayne I won’t have to worry because I have Culligan water delivered to my home.
