Erkens Water Softener Service, Inc.

We are a locally owned and operated company, with over 30 years of experience in the industry. Water Softeners eliminate the effects of hard water. They soften the water by removing the calcium and some forms water iron found there. This extends the useful life of water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, coffee makers, humidifiers and household plumbing systems.

Exceptional customer service and continuous communication when we had to reschedule appointment a few times due to weather in the area and a family emergency on my end. The tech explained everything he was doing in plain language and did a fantastic job. I will recommend Erkens Water to all residents in our community.

Very Friendly. Erkens called me as soon as I sent a message to them through the Home Advisor App. That gentleman got all of my details, including the problem I was having and said that he was going to have Mark call me right away to set something up. I just hung up with the guy from Erkens, when Mark called. He was very friendly, wanted to come out the next day, but I wasn't available. I told him what days I am usually home, and we set up an appointment for the following Wednesday. But then he said that he was going to be in the area on Saturday for his grand daughter's skating. And that he could swing over in between her skating. I said that I would be home all day. And we hung up. He then texted me about 20 minutes later asking if I could send him pictures of my water softener. After I did, he texted that he has worked with those before and he would see me on Saturday. When Saturday came, he texted me about 2 hours prior to showing up, giving me an ETA. When he was here, he was very very friendly and knowledgeable and professional. He would not leave until the problem was fixed. Which it only took him about 30 minutes. Even though he thought it was one problem, but then hung around a minute or two to see if that did solve the problem. Then when it did not solve the problem. He kept going. But he was not leaving until it was solved. I wish I had more water problems in my home for Mark to fix, because he was very knowledgeable. Great Company and people from start to finish!!

Nick was very nice and completely knew what he was doing! He was able to offer me exactly what I needed and was able to come sooner than planned because of a personal schedule change. I highly recommend Erkens Water!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
