free water quality test + 20$ home depot gc

Retailer:
unknown
I was at home-depot ( heartland, Mississauga) this weekend and was asked regd a free water quality test by a salesperson ( thirdparty authorized to market in homedepot) .
They were offering a 20$ gift card for a free water test at home.
While i didnt go with it myself- as it looked more of they want to sell than they want to tell. Posting in case someone wants to take advantage.

Not sure how much you value your time, but $20 for an extended sales pitch in your own home? No thanks.

And potential that without express written notice not to do so, the vendor will still attempt to schedule an install and bill for their equipment.

I had to suffer through one of these once. I thought it would be rather quick test and then pitch for the product. The softener was WAY overpriced and then needed to subscribe to get their soaps/laundry products, whatever. It took well over an hour to get rid of the guy. I was probably too nice about it.

I'm thinking this is RainSoft? I fell for this when I moved into a newly built home and it took well over an hour to get rid of the salesman. He spent his time convincing me a water softener would be a good idea but ended up leaving after I got pissed at the ridiculous price: $100/month for 10 years! Yes, $12,000! Face With Tears Of Joy

Yeah, that sounds about right. I nearly passed out when I heard that number. How many people fall for this nonsense? Oh, but they supply soaps and stuff. Yeah, that makes it worth it.
