Jeannie at houseinprogress.net is looking for a reliable water softener installer in Chicago. I don't know one and have no useful suggestions, except for one, and it's not mine:

A few years back, my brother had his house painted. I asked him how he found the guys that did it, since he was so happy with the job they did. "Easy," he said, "I keep a ten-year old copy of the phone book around. I sit down with the old one and the new one, and I figure anyone who's still in business now has got to be good."
