Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covers flimsy otherwise good Simple to fit. All the parts are supplied. I was replacing an old unit so didn't have to break into the mains. I've only had it a short time but so far looks OK. My only gripe is the flimsiness of the covers and electonics connctors. When I was moving it into place I knocked the covers slightly, but it was enough to send the cover containing the LCD screen to thd ground, pulling the two very flimsy ribbon cables from their sockets. It wasn't difficult to work out where they came from using the processcof elimination to work out which if the two double pin plugs to connect to. Other than that it looks like a good unit,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Water Softener Have now had this softener for 3 years, totally problem free. Would not be without it. Fantastic for bathing and showering, also appreciated by the dishwasher and washing machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to install I bought this as a direct replacement for my Waterside MC 250 which started leaking after 21years constant use.......nothing lasts like it used to!. The new one went in seamlessly and was really easy to programme. I tested the water with the hardness kit, which showed it to be harder than the Anglian water figures. So far so good , it's been in since sunday and no complaints so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water Softener Review Was easy to fit and set up, I did fit a 3/4 brass tank adapter though and 3/4 hosetail with flexi hose for overflow instead of plastic fitting provided. Installed and working ok so far only been in 2 days though so cannot comment on long term reliability Almost seemed too easy to program only time, hardness and recharge time needed piece of cake.

Can I use granular salt?

Asked by: seventy
We would recommend that you only use tablet salt. However, if you wish to purchase salt from Screwfix, you can use granular salt (product code: 89803). In this instance, only fill the cabinet half full with salt.

How long does the unit normally take to regenerate please when it runs overnight

Asked by: OrganicDaddy
A full regeneration can take up to 90 minutes. However, at the heart of the BWT water softener is an electronic control system that not only measures your water usage but based upon your patterns of usage, predicts and anticipates your future demand. In order to achieve maximum efficiency of the softener performance the softener will NOT carry out a 100% full regeneration, as at the time of a scheduled regeneration the softener still has some remaining capacity. Therefore, the time taken will be less than 90 minutes but will also be dependent upon your unique water usage pattern.

W.R.A.S. approval

I see this unit is not WRAS approved. Does this mean it could potentially contaminate the public water supply...? I would be intending to connect it to the incoming main.
Asked by: Brahan
The BWT WS Series water softener (including the WS355 and the WS455) are WRAS approved.
