Would recommend this system to anyone – Gatineau customer: I have this system for 11 years now. No regrets…..would not drink water if I did not have it……would recommend this system to anyone. I don’t regret for one minute buying a rain Soft System.

Service and Installation – The kind that is hard to find – Greely customer: Whether service or sales, Martin and his staff are always there to assist. Service is polite, quick, clean, helpful – even fixed a problem that was not the company’s issue without cost or complaint. Overall it has been an excellent relationship – inital setup, additional equipment and supply purchases. Something that is hard to find these days. Thank you Martin and David!

RAINSOFT TC WATER CONDITIONING SYSTEM_GIMPGoogle Review – Limoges customer: In Limoges and extremely happy with the results! Got only good things to say about Martin and Rainsoft of Ottawa! … we noticed that the water here was extremely hard. It was actually to the point that fixtures were getting etched, sediment clogging faucets and shower heads and well our skin was taking a beating as far as dryness goes! So after bringing a sample of water to Martin, he advised us of the hardness of the water and what solution he could provide. He not only recommended the equipment but also helped fit it into my budget. His installer was prompt and did a nice, clean and professional installation. Being that I was skeptical of how much of an impact the Rainsoft water softener would make, I took a shower that night with no expectations and I gotta tell ya, what a DIFFERENCE! The water was absolutely different and so much softer. I have a good friend that came for a visit from out of town and even he commented on how soft the water was compared to his own home. We have now had the system for a year and of course before I give a review, I like to test the product out thoroughly. Cost of ownership is not that much as far as replenishing the salt either! I always love coming home to shower after being out of town and staying at a hotel. So all in all, you can’t go wrong dealing with Martin! He is a professional and a straight shooter and makes sure his customers are taken care of. If you live in the Limoges area and don’t have one of these water softeners, you should contact Martin! No matter where we live, we will definitely be sure to have Rainsoft products in our home! Keep up the good work!

Excellent product! – Manotick customer:  We live in country and needed a water purification system. The sales rep was informative and helpful without being pushy. have had system for 3 years and am extremely satisfied.have recommended this product to others who are happy with results.
