About once a week we receive a phone call in the office from someone who purchased a house a few years ago and ended up being severely disappointed by their water treatment experience. It is common practice in a real estate transaction to expect the seller to pay for water treatment. Sellers can be really nice people, but face it, they are leaving. Their primary interest is usually to get out of the experience spending as little money as possible.
Low bid water treatment is a really bad idea. Think about it. The system that is going to process the water that you drink, bathe in, and basically run your house with is going to be purchased with the most important criteria being price?
I have a construct to help people understand this concept. The products and services provided with water treatment are made up of the knowledge to choose the proper system for the application, the cost of the installation, the ability of the company to be present to service and support the system well into the future, and the physical hardware to do the job. Most people assume the cost is in the hardware. While the physical system is very important and there are real differences, the real cost in water treatment is the cost of the experience and knowledge which take years to build. If companies do not charge enough to cover that investment, they cannot afford to make that investment.
While in the middle of a real estate transaction you do not have time to become a water treatment expert. But you can get a sense about the technical knowledge and customer service skills of companies being considered for the job of putting the water treatment in your future home. This is going to be your water treatment company, speak up!
