    Customer Review

    By Frank G.
    Middleburg, VA

    JR Snider is a local business here in Middleburg; we love to contribute to the local community. Obviously, we would only do such if products and service were commensurate with other quality service providers. I can confidently say that JR Snider offers high quality and professional service in both sales and installation. From the office staff to the field team you get the same friendly demeanor. You can certainly tell the difference between family owned and corporate entities - JR Snider is the former and it shows. In this particular case the field service tech Joe is a water quality and systems specialist. Joe knows what he's doing at the highest level and cares about the results of his work. This is the JR mentality, hire the right people and your business will grow for the right reasons. Thank you Joe!!

    Mr. H. had recently moved into a new home and started to notice the water system that was installed in the home when he purchased it wasn't working properly. 

    Brad went out and tested the water and found the outdated equipment wasn't working at all. We installed a WaterCare Air Cat, a Resin Softener, and a UV light for bacterial in the house. Now Mr. H. has nice, clean water throughout his home.

    Mr. T. had a water test which came back positive for Total Coliform bacteria. They called us to shock the house to rid the home of the bacteria. We happily sent Brad out for a free in-home water analysis. Brad informed Mr. T. that shocking the house doesn't always rid the water of bacteria. His suggestion was to install a new UV light to actually rid the house of bacteria and as well as installing a WaterCare CareSoft Elite softener to help with the hardness in the water as well.

    Mrs. W. was not happy with the quality of her water. She said her white clothes were not coming clean after washing and that her skin felt dry and itchy. Mrs. W. was tired of scrubbing the gummy deposits off her shower walls and was tired of having to use harsh cleaning products to keep her tiles clean. She asked if there was anything we could do to help her situation. Upon arrival, our technician tested the well water and found the water to be very hard. Our technician recommended our WaterCare Caresoft Elite water softener to remove minerals and hardness from the water. Mrs. W. now has soft, luxuriant water giving her an abundance of lather from her soaps and shampoos. Mrs. W. remarked that she is very happy with her water and wishes she had done this sooner.

    Having previously lived in town on “city water”, Mr. and Mrs. E. were unsure of who to contact about the issues they were having with the well water in their new home.  Luckily for them, their neighbor knew just who to tell them to call!

     

    The existing water treatment equipment was not addressing all of the issues in the water and was causing pressure issues throughout the house.  

     

    After a quick water analysis, we explained what the issues were and what options could be used to improve the quality and performance of the system.  

     

    First, we installed a new larger pressure tank to save wear and tear on the well pump.

     

    Second, we installed a new iron filtration system to oxidize and filter out the iron which was staining all of the fixtures.

     

    Third, we installed a new resin water softener to remove the hardness from the water.

     

    And lastly, we installed a new ultraviolet disinfection system to protect against harmful bacteria.

     

    A quick shocking of the plumbing system ensured that it was sanitized and safe for use.

    Mr. J. called us when he wanted a second opinion on options for replacing his older water treatment system.

     

    After testing the water and comparing the results with what was originally installed, it was agreed that the existing system was over-designed and oversized for what was needed. We also determined that several components of the system were not even needed.

     

    Both the quality of the water as well as the usage was within what standard residential equipment could address. Once we explained that smaller units could provide the same quality water and would cost significantly less it was not a hard choice for the customer to make.

     

    Our water treatment supervisor Joe S. made quick work of the replacement.  He installed a Care Soft Elite resin water softener and a “ONE” tank cartridge filter.  The addition of a ultraviolet disinfection system provides protection against harmful bacteria.

    Bluemont, VA Tankless Water Heater

    One of our customers recently purchased a new home and needed some updating done. The home had 2 very large outdated water heaters that were constantly heating water as well as 2 small pressure tanks that were not the appropriate size for the amount of water needed. 

    Mr. L wanted to install a tankless water heater to reduce the amount of water being heated constantly. We ended up installing 2 Navien Tankless Water heaters that are able to produce 14 GPM of hot water throughout the entire home.

    We also installed 2 large pressure tanks that will be able to keep up with the amount of water being used in the house.
