No water pressure in your house? Do you seem to have pressure a few days and then it is gone again?
First if you have a water softener put it on by-pass. Then check to see if you have normal pressure. If the pressure went back to normal, yes there is problems with the water softener. If the pressure did not get better call the water company.
A water softener has resin inside the tank. Resin is tiny little hard beads. When the resin has gone bad it gets more like the consistency of jelly and the water cannot get thru it, therefore you lose pressure. If the pressure is changing over days, the resin has probably started to go bad. The unit regenerates you have pressure a few days and then you lose pressure for a few days until unit regenerates again. Eventually the pressure will get to where it is very noticeable. By-pass water softener and schedule to get resin in the softener changed out.
If you have a high-quality softener you will not have a problem finding someone to do this. If you have a lower end unit, this is where you probably retire it.

Do you really need a salesman to come to your house to determine what you need for a water softener? The answer is yes and no. A educated water softener company will already know the approximate hardness of your water. Every time a company installs a softener they test the water. Usually you can tell a company your zip code and they will know close what the water in your area is testing. They need this information to determine what size you need. The same size water softener for a family of three may work in one area but not in another area due to the hardness of the water.
If your house is pre-plumbed for a water softener with a few basic questions most determining factors can be worked out without the salesman seeing the sight. This is possible as long as the technician installing the water is truly qualified and experienced to do the install. A lot of times the salesman is giving the technician detailed information how to install because that technician actually has very little experience.
If a house is not pre-plumbed for a softener before a crew arrives yes someone will have to do a site inspection. This will determine the final cost of the installation. The size of unit and an approximate cost should be able to be given before anyone comes out. This way before you have spent an hour or more of your time with a salesman only to find out it is not in your budget.
