Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I bought this for a customer who wanted an economical softener that would fit under her sink. The kit comes with it which is a bonus and the hoses are good quality. My only gripe from an installation point of view is the overflow discharge point is at the back of the unit making it very fiddly to fit. If this was at the side it would have made installation a lot smoother. In terms of how well it works I can't yet comment. Have left it set up and running and given the customer the hardness test kit to check the hardness levels once it has been in for a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous little softener We opted for a smaller water softener due to lack of cupboard space in the kitchen so thought we'd give this one a try and were certainly not disappointed. The quality of the unit is very good, unlike some flimsy plastic ones of a similar price. Being a metered unit means that it's economical to run (It's been installed for around 5 months and we're still on the same bag of salt). We tested the softness of the water following installation (using the supplied kit) and the softness was spot on - despite the hardness of the water in our area. We also have a 3 toilets (WC, ensuite and main bathroom) and even though this is small it is more than adequate to supply water around the house, as well as the dishwasher and washing machines working simultaneously. We didn't install the softener ourselves, rather getting a local water softener company in (who usually supply the £0000 units) and he had no grumbles with any of the fittings etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Early days yet I installed the water softener myself, in an under-stairs cupboard where the incoming water main is located. Installation was straightforward apart from a couple of issues: firstly the 15mm kit contained the wrong valves - inline valves were supplied instead of T-valves and I had to go and purchase a couple of 15mm Tees. Secondly there is a mistake in the installation instructions, where item 9 reads "Check that the Brine Cabinet contains salt and water". I had to telephone the manufacturer's technical helpline and they advised that this is a misprint and in fact the brine cabinet should only contain salt at this stage. My final problem was that this model is designed to work with tablet salt, not block salt, however Screwfix only stock the latter and so that is what I ordered, not knowing at that stage that there is an important difference. The softener itself is not supplied with any salt and Screwfix should probably make this clear in their description, along with advice as to what type of salt is required. My three star ratings for performance and reliability should be ignored, as it is too early to judge these criteria at the moment. I will update this review after using the product for a month or so.

How much does the unit itself weigh?

Given that I'm not as strong as I used to be, it will help me decide whether I can lift it on to the chest-high shelf it will be installed on, or whether I need to pay someone else to do it.
Asked by: Dremm
The unit weighs 22kg, standalone.

Type of salt

We have a few bags of granular salt leftover from our old softener - is it ok to use this up?
Asked by: KezE1
We do advise the use of tablet salt with this model, however if you wish to use up the granular salt we advise to only half fill the cabinet with this type of salt and to keep an eye on the water levels within the unit.

can you fit this in a basement

Asked by: ablim
Yes. As long as you have a water pressure of 3 BAR or more, you can raise the drain to a maximum of 3 meters above the valve head. The overflow can be run to a storage tank. Do not elevate the overflow hose. Do not join the overflow and drain hose.

Suitable for loft fitting?

I'd like to fit this in my loft feeding the indirect cold water tank. This in turn feeds a hot water cylinder and the upstairs cold taps. The kitchen tap is fed from the main. Is this device suitable?
Asked by: Naybr
All well and good putting it in the loft but you'll have to run another pipe from the loft to the kitchen to feed the dishwasher and washing machine to supply softened water.
