Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hasn't worked properly! I purchased this water softener to replace a Waterside softener that we had in place for 16 years. The previous one had worked fine until recently when the control circuit board went. I decide to replace the whole unit with this one as Waterside are no longer in existence. This was easy to install as the fittings were all the same. It hasn't though worked in the 10 weeks it has been in place. The water hardness has only reduced by a very small amount and it has only used half a tank of salt in that time. Trying now to get a service engineer out to look at it! We did have a commissioning service carried out after installation and the engineer said we should change our cold water tank ball valve to a Fluidmaster one. I had a plumber out to do this but he said the existing flow is enough and wouldn't be any better with a Fluidmaster. The plumber also said that fitting that type of valve in the cold water tank is against regulations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Water Softener. I bought this water softener to replace an old one, so all plumbing already in place making a simple job to swap over. An immediate improvement was noticeable so I’m very happy with the performance, time will tell long term reliability. The only negative thing is the lid that contains the little circuit board and socket for power input, its flimsy and cheap looking and doesn’t stay in place when you try to manhandle the softener into place, you can’t unplug it and I was worried that the wires could easily get snapped off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid Product Bought this to replace the old model (also purchased from Screwfix) It is a well made unit but most importantly well documented and supported (unlike other cheaper models from a well known alternative supplier) Everything is supplied that is necessary for installation. A key point for this model is that it works on metering the soft water used rather than a simple timed function. This is important as although timed models are cheaper to purchase you will pay in increased salt usage and water consumption in the longer term. As usual delivery to my home was quick and efficient as expected from Screwfix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb water softener Since fitting this product my water is much softer. I was amazed to see instant results using the testing kit that is included in the box. The hard water was making my hair dry and brittle. Since fitting the softener, my hair is now much healthier and shinier. Also I no longer have limescale buildup in my bathroom, making it much quicker and easier to clean.

Hi flow kit 22mm

I already have 22mm braided hoses on my old water softener. Would this be a straight swap or would I need the high flow kit? Is there a code for the high flow kit and what does it contain?
Asked by: wilba2
This would depend on connection sizes. With the 22MMKIT comes the hoses & valves; bypass, inlet & reducers. Please contact BWT direct to order.

Combi boiler high flow softener needed with 15mm feed

I have a combi boiler with a 15mm water feed. Do I need the high flow 22mm water softener even though the feed for the boiler is 15mm (and from the main stopcock is 15mm) I’m not sure on the need to increase to 22mm to then go back to 15mm
Asked by: Lharrisk
Systems using combination boilers (15mm). For these systems, we recommend that your water softener be “hard plumbed” using copper tubes or flexible high flow braided hoses. The addition of 22mm hoses when the household pipework is all 15mm would be futile.

What does the water PH level run at?

I want to buy a Quooker but have been told that a water softener will only work with it if the PH level is 7 or higher.
Asked by: Leahcarlou
There is little change in the pH levels between untreated water & soft water. The treated (soft) water remains alkaline, but is slightly less alkaline than it was before being softened – the water does not become acidic and will not cause corrosion.

Is this unit suitable for a 2 bathroom house

Would this unit be suitable for a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house. There is good water pressure and a combi boiler system. Just trying to limit any potential issues with water flow rates. Would the high flow unit be more suitable? Thank you
Asked by: Chris500
The recommended size is based on the quantity of people living at the property. A 14L softener is suitable for up to 6 people at a property. A 10L softener would be sufficient for up to 4 people. The whole WS Range haw a recommended operating pressure of between 1.7 & 5 BAR. We would recommend a high flow unit if your property has 22mm pipework.

Water Pressure & connect to 22mm water pipe!

Our main water pipe supply is 22mm. Can we connect this water softener? (On advert says 15mm) Also Is this water softener affect the water pressure? (Reduce the pressure?)
Asked by: Sama445
You would need to purchase a high flow installations kit to enable installation. (Sold separately). 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.
