Discover the Best Water Softeners in Peterborough & Surrounding Areas

When researching water softener options, it’s important to note that not all softeners are the same. They come with different size inlets and outlets that can impact your water pressure, different capacities for softener media, which impacts how well your water is softened and how much salt you’ll use, and different electronics and heads.

However, most softeners work in the same way. They use a process called ion exchange to remove hardness minerals from your water and replace them with sodium chloride.

Hardness minerals build up on your water heating elements in your water-using appliances like water heaters, boilers, washing machines, dish washers, humidifiers, and coffee pots. It also can leave residue on your skin and hair, causing your skin to be dry and hair to look lackluster. You may also notice your towels don’t stay fluffy, your white clothes start to turn grey, and your bright clothes start to lose their boldness.

Sodium chloride, however, does not build up or leave a residue which then protects your plumbing, appliances, skin, hair, and clothing.

What's The Best Water Softener For Me?

Our water is fantastic! Thank you McLeod's(same last name, no relation)We recently had Kimberly from McLeod's come by to do a water test, we have chlorine and a high sediment content which made the tap water undrinkable. The system was installed and WOW, what a difference! No chlorine smell and the water is super clear. In addition, all our pipes and water-dependent appliances, etc, are protected from the sediment.Another benefit is NO FILTERS TO CHANGE and NO CLEANING performed by us!Yes, we highly recommend McLeod's, from sale to installation it was a five star experience!

My conversation with McLeods sales person Ryan,seemed to show a good knowledge of the UV filter system that I was interested in .The price quote included all fees and seemed fair. A few weeks later when the installer showed up,John was very professional and courteous and had the system installed in about an hour. I was quite happy with neat install and he also gave me a good comprehensive review of the system and future maintenance. Happy

The service we received was excellent. A salesman came out to see us and explained everything to us. We had a 15 year old water softener that stopped working. Before he left , we already knew we wanted to deal with Mcleod's. They installed the new one and took away the old one. They also serviced our conditioner, no charge. We also got 3 bags of salt to start things off. I highly recommend this Company. Gloria Taylor

Kimberly just came to our home (on a Saturday) to test out our water and gave us options for our hard water and UV options to make it drinkable, we couldn't be more happy with the customer service, since they have a person like her working for the company I knew we found the right company to go with. We are excited for our install date.

After 2 decades of service they have , without warning or even trying to help us, they have cancelled our service saying.."they were not making a profit from our account". So not a 5 star company.

Very impressed with the entire process in consultation, pricing, install and final results. Our water was undrinkable (iron, funny taste) and we reached out to other companies in the area before touching base with McLeod's. Ryan came out and assessed or situation. His recommendation was superior and far cheaper then any alternative from other companies.We were even given a free filter. We no longer purchase bottled water or use our water dispenser. A year plus in and we could not be happier. Do yourself a favour and give them an opportunity to provide you with a plan and quote. You will not be sorry.
