|Water Softeners > Top Brands > Morton|
Overall Rank: 7th
Morton name is best known for salt and related products, which the
company has been producing for more than 150 years. However, under its
System Saver brand, Morton has also been making water softeners, which
is not totally surprising given that salt is the major necessary
ingredient in most water softener systems. What may be more surprising
is that the company's water softeners actually stack up quite well
against competitive offerings.
For consumers who are not looking to spend a fortune on a water softener, Morton can offer a cost effective alternative. Many consumers have expressed their satisfaction with the performance of their Morton water softeners and particularly highlighted the units' ultra-efficient utilization of salt which makes fewer refills necessary and reduces operating expense over time. Consumers have also given high marks to Morton's customer service department. On the other hand, Morton water softeners are not nearly as popular as a number of other brands and do not have the same level of dedicated serviceperson support, particularly with respect to installation.
