RainSoft - Money paid system not fixed

Posted: 2013-11-06 by    Terry Coop
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Paid $500 to have system serviced/repaired. Not repaired, still have bad water. This began aug 1, 2013, still not repaired. Rainsoft decided they would test the water, sent water test, just for us to see we would have to pay another 100 to send it back. Rainsoft never returned our calls after that.

We have had the system since we owned our home, over 10 yrs. The system was upgraded and eventually rainsoft lost the service tech in this area. Finally recently they hired one only to have him take 500$ from us and not fix/service the system. We were scheduled for another rainsoft tech/owner...

RainSoft - Kentucky - Rude, pushy product pusher

Wow...seems like I dodged a bullet. I, too did the Home Depot sweepstakes thing & was contacted to have a water test done. I cannot bring myself to label the individual a "Salesman" because he became rude & pushy when I had the nerve to make a couple of copies (i have a small copier in my home) of two pages from his sight seller, question some of the assertions he made without supporting data, and the final straw was when he insisted on talking over me, interrupting me in mid sentence numerous times. I also wanted to research the claims he was making regarding the info on the pages I copied....

RainSoft - Florida, Jacksonville - misrepresentation

Complaint Rating:  86 % with 7 votes
Approached while shopping in Home Depot by a representative of Rainsoft/ possibly one of the employees of the local dealership. I was told I could have them come to my home and do a water test to check for any problems with my water system. I agreed to the in home test, because I had recently moved to Jacksonville, and also since I had just bought a new home. When the representatives came to my home in May, 2011 they proceeded to show me how my water had impurities and the air quality of my system could be improved by their products (the water and air purification systems). I was told I needed to...

Happy! The folks at Professional Water Services have be taking care of my filthy, smelly, rotten water 18 years with out incident. The 2 companies before them couldn't cut it. Thanks Linda, Mark, Pete and the rest of you good people. I normally don't write things online because there is no rules. But when my daughter told me she found something on line that was negative, I felt compelled to speak up. Thanks again...

A & B Marketing d/b/a Rainsoft continually calls my home marketing their product even though I have asked them repeatedly to remove me from their call list. The girl who calls is very pushy, and rude and claims that we have been referred to them by a friend, or by home depot.

RainSoft - New Jersey - Salesman lies

Complaint Rating:  75 % with 4 votes
If a Rainsoft salesman calls hang up. If you did make an appointment don't let them in the door. I got a phone call that I 'won' two prizes. One was a free water test and the other a gift card from Home Depot. The caller explained she was from Home Depot and the free water test was in order to see what was wrong with the water in the area so they knew what type of chemicals to spend. I told her I didn't want a spiel for a water conditioner company. No no no she said. This test is worth 100's of dollars and is for Home Depot. If you want a water softener they will sell you...

RainSoft - Florida, Jacksonville - Discrimination

A RAINSOFT salesman came to our house to give us an estimate on a water softener, yesterday. He refused to give my wife a price, saying he could only give it to her if "her husband was home." What is this, the 1930's? OUTRAGEOUS!
This will turn out to be a bad day for RAINSOFT, I assure you.
Ladies, if you want a water softener, don't call RAINSOFT; unless your husband is home. They evidently won't deal with a woman....

RainSoft - former rep's story

Posted:    jondoe89
Complaint Rating:  82 % with 17 votes
I worked for a rainsoft dealer until this past week when the business could no longer sustain itself. I was never paid for my month of service. Usually when I arrived at peoples' homes they had little idea why I was there. Most of the time, by the time I was informed of the appointment it was already 15 to 45 min late. Apparently some customers are told they won a water test, although I wouldn't know for sure as I never met the people making these appointments. Their target market is low income homes with because they are more likely to purchase without really thinking about it. They also...

We purchased the rainsoft system...or shall I say my husband was suckered into purchasing the rainsoft system exactly one year ago. I had concerns as the product cosst 5k for whole house and air purifier system, and because our sales rep who turns out to also be the general manager in our area made it seem like the company was working for us. Needless to say, Robert the GM set up the install before even mentioning anything about us needing to perform maintainence on the product monthly and annually. I tried to return the product after thirty days because I did not feel that it did anything even...

RainSoft - Ohio, Cleveland - Don't Purchase this product

Complaint Rating:  92 % with 12 votes
I'm a first time home buyer, and a few weeks after I moved in, I recieved one of the cold calls offering me free gifts for 15 mins of my time in which my water would be tested. I agreed for the water testing. The salesman showed me how dirty my water was and how much better it was with the system. I was told that with this system, when making a bubble bath, I'd have tons of bubbles without using alot of soap. Never happened. The bubbles accumulate the same as they did with the regular city water. My dishes in my dishwasher comes out no differently than they did before I had this system,...

RainSoft - Ripoff

Complaint Rating:  89 % with 9 votes
All comparable softeners are basically the same from one company to another with the exception of the control head.
Quality and value is about the same.
To give you an idea of how much over priced a rainsoft conditioner is,
you could buy a contr0l head of equal value from some other company like Fleck for instance and install it in place of a Rainsoft head on your Rainsoft system and you would have a softener that would perform as well as if not better than your softener with a Rainsoft head!

The bonus???? You would have saved yourself roughly $2300!!!

Complaint Rating:  89 % with 9 votes
I, like many others got a similar cold call about someone coming out to test my water system. They said that it would take about 15 minutes and that there would even be a fun experiment for my kids to do. They also said that I would receive a $20 gift card to Walmart for agreeing to the test. Last year someone from our town came out to test our water and said it was fine, and it only took 5 minutes. I thought that it was the same people coming to check it again, I was wrong. The guy showed up at 6:30 and didn't start until 6:40. Meanwhile, my kids are fussy, one hasn't finished her homework...

WE bought our old rainsoft equipment from our house to see if we could fix it work out here.

Well it is now December 2009, and we have had at least 8 service calls, 3 pumps, and still no good water.

I also was drawn in my the sweepstakes at Home Depot.
The salesman's speel is 2 hours long if you let him in. It's high pressure. He won't leave. We needed a water treatment because of our well so we purchased it for that reason. The company opens up TWO lines of credit for the sale. I didn't find out it was on my credit until I printed my report recently and saw it on there. I called Rainsoft and asked them to take care of it and get American FINCO off my credit so that it doesn't show an open and closed account on my credit and they told me to call FINCO. I said...

My husband was at Home Depot, waiting for an interview and saw the sign about entering your sweepstakes to win a $1000 gift card. So, he filled it out. Several weeks later we get a call from Rain Soft and they said in order for us to officially be entered into the Home Depot contest we had to get our water tested. Then, she said after we get our water tested they will send us a $20 gift card. She said they are performing water testing in our neighborhood. I asked her if they were going to try and sell us something and she said NO. We'll when the guy comes from Rain Soft to test our water that...

Free water test!

Be warned:

Mr. Rainsoft just left my house about two hours ago.
(With his Tail between his legs)
I had no choice but to escort him off my property.
Major ASSHOLE!

I almost went for my shotgun.
I now have it loaded next me just in case he returns.

My wife is frieked out and I'm pissed.
God help the next rainsoft representative who approaches me!

I will NEVER allow another salesmen into my home again.

Do your research and you will see.
