We recently purchased a Harvey's Softener as we had moved into a new house and the water was very hard. We did have a water softener in our last house and it had worked perfectly for 26 years. Softeners have changed so much, they do not need electricity and only regenerate when necessary, our old one used to regenerate every night at 2am in the morning regardless of whether you were there or not. Salt is not supplied in blocks which makes no mess and the unit is much smaller than our old unit. Washing powder, shampoos and other products do not have to be replenished very often, so big savings there. Our garden tap still has hard water so no soft water going onto to the garden.
