Company History

State Soft Water was created in 1970 when Cliff and Barb Klefstad saw the need for a water treatment company to take care of the needs of a rapidly expanding Livingston County. State Soft Water was created as a family owned business to fill these needs. They realized that the best way to be successful was to take good care of the customers before, and especially after, the sale. This led to steady growth due in large part to repeat business and referrals from satisfied customers. The original plan, which still stands today, was to offer high quality products and services at reasonable prices.

Cliff started out delivering salt, as well as selling and renting water softeners.  Soon afterwards, iron filters, carbon tanks, and reverse osmosis drinking water systems were added to the product line. From there things continued to grow.  Their son Rian started working with them in 1978. Most recently, Charles Hix was hired in 1999. In an effort to provide customers with the latest products, State Soft Water is continually learning about developments in the water treatment industry. For example, calcite filters, which raise the PH levels in water, are one of their latest products.
