Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaky I found after some three years the o’rings on the back of the unit had dribbled. Hidden away the unit effectively ruined our kitchen cupboard. BWT replaced the o’rings for £20 (they are non-standard). Now the unit overfills - looks like a sticking valve. BWT will fix for £185+vat. I wonder should I purchase another brand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't i get this sooner? My old water softener was 35 years old, and it at last gave up on me. I ordered this at the Screwfix Live show in Farnborough, and got £100 of the list price. Picked it up from my local store. Easily fitted to the old connections. Took only a few minutes to commission, and the first recharge was after 10 days, unlike the old one which recharged every six days. The water is so much softer, and I am using less salt. Looks good too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves on cleaning! We had a really bad limescale problem affecting our bathroom and kitchen so decided to buy this as we saw the effect it had on a friend's property. We were amazed by the instant effect it had when using the water softness tester included in the kit. And as for cleaning? Well, now we don't even need to scrub, we just wipe clean with a sponge and soapy water, no more dangerous chemicals to get rid of the limescale. You may think it's expensive at first but think of the money you save from not buying new plumbing fittings and hazardous cleaning products. Very pleased with this purchase indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended Bought this unit to replace a 13 year old BWT softener that started leaking. It was easy to install and the instructions were straightforward. Am a novice at this sort of thing but got it installed with no leaks and disasters, even upgrading my overflow to be plastic pipe rather than a hose poking out the side of the house. The unit itself, the hoses and connectors seem good quality but I agree with other reviews that the plastic covers are a bit flimsy and the ribbon cables to the electronics are an accident waiting to happen if you plan on taking the lid off frequently. Old softener was clearly on its way out because the difference with this new unit is massive. Most noticeable in the shower where you get a lot more bubbles. First regeneration post install was on day 6, five of us in the house. It’s worth pointing out that I phoned BWT for some advice on this and they were brilliant, very knowledgable and helpful, knew the Screwfix product ID for the unit she was recommending given our water usage.

what is ws355 different to ws555?

Asked by: some1l8
The WS555 is a premium softener which uses monospheric (premium) resin - this gives a better performance at higher flow rates. The WS555 unit also comes supplied with high flow fittings and can be used with both tablet salt and block salt, it also has a gravel bed.

Does the water softener reduce water flow?

I have quite low pressure here and would be concerned if I was reduced further, that there may not be enough for the power shower to function correctly
Asked by: 1kelvedoner1
BWT water softeners have been designed to operate efficiently and effectively with an incoming water pressure of between 1.7 to 5 BAR. If your water supply is likely to fall outside these limits, then we would recommend that a booster pump or pressure limiting valve should be fitted respectively.
