We were told that this no salt water conditioning system would do a better job as our old Salt filtration system. We have had nothing but problems with the system. Our water pressure in our home has been greatly compromised with the new system. We have had 2 experts out and they both agree that this system is NOT right for our water and well system in Long Grove. The Plumber claimed that this system would eliminate hard water spots on our bathroom fixtures and dishes and that it would be more cost effective - however, the filters have needed to be changed more than twice in the last 2 months. (we were told 1x per year) and we have spots on everything and our water is so hard that we can't even get our soap to lather! He says he guarantees his work 100% but when we told him we were unhappy we were told too bad and that the system is fine. We invited him to hear an expert on the water in our area and he couldn't even defend his product to this specialist or explain how the system benefited us. We asked for a credit for future plumbing and tried to be reasonable with the ***** Boldizar(plumber) but he wouldn't hear of it. In total we have spent over $2700 on this system that is not working for our needs and hasn't met the expectations that Ridge Plumbing had set for us. Mr. Boldizar represented himself as being knowledgeable about well water and filtration systems but yet after problems began he said that it was our water that was the issue ( and yet he never checked our water quality before or after he installed the new system). He also gave us the name of the source in which he got the system from but they refuse to respond to phone calls from us as we wanted answers to our questions. Mr. ********* also claims that we asked him about a new system when he was at our home changing our sump pumps and that was not the truth. He told us how great the system was and how much money it would save us because we wouldn't need salt and it needed maintenance only 1X per year. Even his son agreed that his father brought the system to our attention. The system is of no use to us.

Desired Settlement
We would like to return the product to Ridge Plumbing and receive a refund of $2700. We are having to replace his inadequate system with a new system and we are forced to spend an additional $1300 to get our old system back. We are not asking for that money to be covered. Ridge plumbing disposed of our old system which he said was no longer working correctly. We bought other products from him in a total of over $5000 and we are not asking for any of that money to be returned. We are extremely disappointed in Mr. ************* business ethics and want to make sure that he doesn't take advantage of other customers like he has us.

Business Response
100% refund issued on 3/18/2014
