Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement softener Needed to replace an old unit and this looked ideal. It was. Slightly smaller and so easier to fit in. Works without any hassle. Had the free check-fitting visit and the engineer was very helpful sorting out when it would refresh and how to tell it is working OK. Uses about 10kg of salt a month in our house.

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!

Salt

Which salt does this take block or granules
Asked by: Bear59
We would recommend that you only use tablet salt with this model. 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.

Is this the high flow version?

Asked by: Miniman59
The BWT Water Softener 14 Ltr (62242) is a standard 14 litre water softener, supplied with 15mm fittings. Should you require a high flow softener, please refer to the BWT High Flow Water Softener 10Ltr (44655). This is a 10 litre premium softener, with monospheric resin, a gravel bed and 22mm fittings to perform more consistently at higher flow rates. Note: The BWT Water Softener 14 Ltr (62242) can be installed with a high flow installation kit (22mm valves and high flow hoses), to meet your installation requirements. This kit can be purchased from BWT.

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.
