Today Summerville is a quiet community on the
banks of the Avon River but it has a very interesting past.
Founded  in 1784 by Captain John Grant, a United Empire Loyalists,
it was one of the major shipbuilding centers on the
Minas Shore and a important gypsum producer.
It had two very active wharfs which the remains of are still visible.
At it's height it was the major employer in the area.

Something for Everyone

I just had a very pleasant experience which has shown me that there still are business out that that care for their customers and there are some that don't care at all.
Just about one year ago we bought a new water softener from a well know company in the Middle Sackville area. This company seemed to be the one that most people were using. A couple of weeks ago it stopped working. For a short time I thought i had it fixed but that was to be. I then tried to call the company that I bought it from. That too was not to be. I tried both phone numbers that were on the invoice that I had.
The phone just rang and rang. Finally after many tries I got recording that that just said "We are unable to take your call at this time. Leave a message". No company name or ID of any kind. That didn't sound good.
I went on line to Canada 411 and searched for that companies name and it came up with the same two phone numbers that I already had. I checked their web site and it was down. Now that really didn't sound good either.
On the right side bar of the Canada 411 page was a listing on similar companies.
I picked one and called it.
What a surprise I got. Someone answered the phone and was very pleasant. I explained my problem and asked what he might know about this other company. He said that he really didn't know much except that their van was in the driveway and it looked like it hadn't moved for some time.
Then I told him what was wrong with my softener. He told me that he could service it and
if there was any warranty work he could do that also since he bought his equipment from the same distributor. We arranged for his company to visit me today. The technician was at our door at 11 am. He left an hour and a half later. He was happy and I was very happy.
He charged a very fair price and even took the time to show me what to do if this problem should happen again.
Then I had him test the water to see if he thought I could use an iron filter. He explained that an iron filter would not get rid of the odor and the test showed that my iron count was 0. He could have quite easily sold me something that would not do what I needed.
I'm not used to this type of service and would recommend this company to anyone that need their water treatment equipment serviced.
They certainly are one of the good ones.
