Should I have a licensed contractor install a softener?
Installing equipment to treat water requires a special license and special knowledge about plumbing code. Handyman companies DO NOT hold this license and are not legally allowed to install them. This becomes a huge liability and leaves the homeowner responsible for any flooding or issues caused by improper installation. Most installers reduce the plumbing main size to “hook up” softening equipment which drastically restricts water flow. Also, plumbing service companies that can install softeners lack the training and experience to program a water softener properly, resulting in a very inefficient system. This will cost more money in the long run compared to using a contractor that specializes solely in water treatment.
