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.

We experienced a pressure tank problem on a 7 year old filtration system. The staff were helpful in identifying the tank as the problem, advising the part is still under warranty and then assisting me by phone to remove the old unit and replace it. Zero cost, great assistance and support from everyone. That's how you build a loyal customer base. Great work!

We had McLeod’s come and install our new water softener system up at the cottage. Talking to Kimberly from the beginning and sending her picture of the water softener system that was there when we bought the cottage was basically all she really needed to get set us on the right track to a new system. The gentlemen arrived and proceeded to replace the old with a new system without any problems. They even set up a schedule as to when the salt needed to be added. All is working wonderful and we truly appreciate the professionalism that came along with the work. Thank you Kimberly and your associates for the wonderful, professional job that you did. We will highly recommend McLeods Ecowater. Thank you again.

Kim attended as a result of a request by me to have the system checked due to rust issues. Port Perry was under new ownership. I had the old ownership attend twice re water issues and they installed an in line water filter (didn't stock replacement filter when I needed one) and sold me Rust Out. Had the water softener company send a regional manager to look at my water softener system and it was adjusted.When Kim attended she advised that I had soft water and didn't require a water softener system. No one, including the original installer, ever told me that. Kim advised I needed a Ecowater iron removal filter system. I had it installed and the softener removed with Kim providing a plan for me to try out the system to see if it worked.What a difference the iron filter has made to my water. No more brown residue on bathroom sinks, tubs and showers. washcloths stay white.Hard to believe we spent several years with the wrong system and no one bothered to tell us. My wife had complained about the water and that's why I had it checked so many times. My wife passed away in July 2022 before Kim fixed my water problem so she never got the satisfaction of knowing she was right about the water.I big "Thank you" to KImberley Bain of Ecowater.Harvey Williams

I want to personally thank Kimberly Bain for her very professional and friendly way she had with us. There was no pressure and she showed us what the problem was and how to fix it. Would definitely recommend her if or when we need a new one. Very honest and respectable person

From the time of first enquiry re the service, costs, installation and delivery, everything was professional, with complete documented information and delivery expectations.All were met and the actual delivery and installation went faster and better than expected. The clean-up was immediate and by the next day we were experiencing better than expected results.The system continues to operate as described and we had a power outage for almost five hours five weeks after the system was installed and the auto system kicked in and everything went back to normal.Highly recommend McLeod's Ecowater System, the company, the service representative and installation technician. The water tastes great and looks much clearer and the hard water lines have all disappeared, showers feel so much better, and the sinks, tub and toilets can now be shown with pride for cleanliness.Thanks McLeod's, much appreciated.Wayne Westman

Although I have not purchased anything from Mc Leod‘s, I have on a few Occasions gone to them for advice or assistance with my 22 year old Culligan installed system. they have been very helpful and knowledgeable and didn’t charge me or try to sell me something I didn’t need. When I get to a point that I can no longer repair my current system they will be my first stop.

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
