Rated 5 out of 5 by from job-well-done I fitted this to my sister's house as her water is so hard her disco shower head would stop working after one shower fitted this but replaced the salt with a carbon filter. Yes I know limescale to remove in full needs the salt but she has a young child so salt no go. Anyway after doing this shower head work's fine and kettle is just like using britar filter for water for drinking so all working good. Easy to fit and if it dose this for shower and kettle has to be doing good for the boiler and other house hold goods.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from misinformation oddjob01's suggestion that this has got anything to do with salt is total rubbish. Salt is used in large water softeners with ion exchange resins to remove calcium and magnesium, and only to regenerate. The scale reduction chemical is sodium polyphoshate which mops up the calcium - if you want to remove tastes get a carbon filter-if you want to remove metals, get a resin based cartridge. I wouldn't drink polyphosphate even if it is food grade. Incidentally, NPT is the American standard for pipe threads and is completely different to BSP - the only threads to will interchange are 1/8 NPT and 1/8 BSP - anything bigger won't. You wn't stand a chance with 3/4" NPT and don't bother asking the plumber's merchant for an adaptor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have had one years ago Live in a hard water area and always had a problem with scale deposits. Over the last year we have noticed that the scale was starting to have a red tint. After spending several thousand on a new bathroom I wasn't prepared to suffer this any longer. This system is good value, there isn't a noticeable drop in pressure and flow. The polyphosphate is food grade but you can taste a slight difference. Not a problem if you fit a cheap filter tap to your kitchen sink. The instructions do state that it is recommended that drinking water is taken off before the filter. In my house impossible. The only downside, is that I have it fitted in a cellar and because of the size of it I was getting a lot of condensation on it. It is now fully insulated and no more problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water cleaner I've had this for four years, change the micofilter when necessar, and have had no problems. I have water form a bore hole and this makes such a difference to the clearity, after the sand filters that we have on line. Water then goes through a proper water softner and this has meant that this unit has been working absolutley perfectly. A cheap system that is easy to maintain.

Our plumber has installed this filter but has not separated the drinking water supply. Is the water safe to drink?

Asked by: Som1234
We would recommend that a minimum of one tap be left as a source of untreated water (drinking water). The BWT 2 Stage Whole House Scale Reduction system doses a small amount of polyphosphate into your water supply to inhibit the build up of scale. Although this is food grade polyphosphate and is perfectly safe for human consumption, we would recommend that it is NOT used for treating water for drinking or cooking purposes.

Are the different types of cartridges in the BWT range interchangable?

Re my previous question which was promptly answered suggested using a carbon and sediment filter system. Unfortunately the cartridge sizes are not stated. Can I use a sediment and carbon cartridge instead of the polyphosphate one in this filter?
Asked by: Steve1953
The 2 Stage Whole House Scale Reduction System is a kit which, in part, comprises of 2 x 10" filter housings, a 10" 5 micron sediment filter cartridge (product code 69860) and a 10" polyphosphate filter cartridge (product code 88345). Standard 10" filter cartridges are interchangeable with the filter housings should you require a different type of filtration. For example, should you require a carbon filter cartridge, the High Capacity Carbon Water Filter Cartridge (product code 11608) would be a suitable option.

Why can`t this be attatched to a drinking water supply?

We live in Kenya and our water comes from a well. There is a lot of sediment, odour and discolouration. I want to fit the filter to the incoming water supply which is gravity fed. I have a combined cartridge and UV filter for drinking water.
Asked by: Steve1953
The 2 Stage Whole House Scale Reduction System can be attached to a drinking water supply, however, we do not recommend this as it contains a polyphosphate dosing element for scale reduction, and this may not improve drinking water taste. You seemingly already have a suitable drinking water solution with UV disinfection and filtration but if you still have issues with sediment, odour and discolouration we would recommend that you also upgrade your current filtration with additional sediment and carbon filtration.

Can I use this to remove scale from my hot water system

Product code 72063 I am thinking of fitting this inline with the rising main suplying the cold cistern which in turn supplies the secondary cold water and the hot water tank. I read that this is effective on cold running water, but once it sits in a cistern and is also heated in a tamk, will the benefits be as effective.
Asked by: FredG
The 2-stage whole house system is ideal to use as you describe. Please ensure that a separate untreated line is kept within the household for drinking water purpose.
