“Not really efficent”

Written on: 03/11/2016 by ArianaHumphries (1 review written)

I had the said product installed 3/4 years ago. However my taps ,Showers,glass, etc have a white limey coating on them. I find this hard to remove and I feel it should not happen as the cost of installing it was 1,400Euro. It was very neatly installed so no complaints there… Read Full Review

“Really pleased”

Written on: 10/10/2016 by NickiGreen (1 review written)

Really pleased we finally made the decision to get a water softener fitted. It was fitted by Hawker Softeners Ltd in Essex and they made such a quick neat job of it even though they had to go through the wall into the garage, nothing was a problem for them. The water softener has made such a difference, everything looks cleaner in the kitchen & bathroom. The kettle which was full of lime scale now looks like new and I'm using less detergent and shampoo etc. Its really easy to keep an eye on and… Read Full Review

“INSTALLATION OF 2020C & K5 DRINKING STATION”

Written on: 01/08/2016 by mrtall35 (1 review written)

I have just had the 2020c installed along with a k5 drinking water station. My initial contact for information and quotes was completed with r c owen in telford. I cannot praise the service i have received from him and his company. Nothing was to much trouble and i was given clear and concise information as to our options costs etc. What was really nice was the lack of hard sell and just somebody that was confident in the product. On the day of the installation the team arrived exactly on… Read Full Review

“Rather disappointed”

Written on: 20/07/2016 by LillieSuarez15 (1 review written)

Hadsoftener for 4 months but not worked for past 4 weeks of that. When did work water was SO horribly soft was like washing in an oil slick. Did not enjoy at all. Since stopped was pleased to have normal water again but disappointed that the engineer cannot visit for a few weeks and conscious that the pipes need the softener. Would not recommend as seems a little more costly than I had expected for the salt - especially as, if not under guarantee it is over £80 to csll engineer - yet another… Read Full Review

“Kinetico softener fitted by Hawker Softeners Ltd. ”

Written on: 15/06/2016 by DaveH35 (1 review written)

Very pleased with the Kinetico 2020c water softener. Installation was brilliantly carried out by Hawker Softeners Ltd and staff throughout every stage were helpful and professional. Installation was quick, efficient and mess free. Now, after three weeks, we are using fully softened water and we notice a huge difference. Washing and showering uses far less soap and the sinks and showers stay sparkling and clean; wave goodbye to calcium build up and soap build up! Your hair and skin really do… Read Full Review

“Amazed at the Difference”

Written on: 09/06/2016 by gauntlet (2 reviews written)

Very pleased with the Kinetico 2020c water softener. Installation was brilliantly carried out by Summerhouse Bathrooms. Staff throughout every stage were helpful and professional. Now we are using the softened water we notice a difference in every aspect of daily life. Bathing and showering is far more enjoyable and dishes that come out of the dishwasher and clothes that come out of the washing machine and sparkling and clean. Would recommend the water softener to anyone who is undecided. The… Read Full Review

“Kinetico Water Softener”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by Portchesterclient (0 reviews written)

Portsmouth Water supply area I have just had a Kinetico 2020c installed by the local Kinetico agent (who services Postcode areas PO and SO) and his work was quick, efficient, clean and tidy. He explained how to operate the system and what to do in the event of a problem. There is currently a very good offer price and the difference it has made to my water is quite unbelievable. Throw away Viakal, Limelight and Shower Spray. I welcome the increased free time and hassle free use of water… Read Full Review

“Nothing but problems ”

I would not buy this water softener. Had to have a part relaxed not long after it was installed now having problems and the company I bought it from can't be bothered to call me back. Do not buy from Watercare in Whitton, their customer service after they have got your money is shocking… Read Full Review

“found a system installed but switched off”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by GiovannaGustafson176 (1 review written)

We moved to HA0 3LU in November and found the Kinetco 2020C switched off. since we had used the Kinetco softner before, we put some salt blocks and switched on. After 3 weeks the salt block is half but the unit is dripping and brought the bathroom half of ceiling down. Any suggestions?… Read Full Review

Hi
I sounds like there was a problem left on this softener when you purchased the property and this is why the owner probably left it switched off and didn't inform you.
I would switch the unit and have the unit check out / serviced.

Kind regards

I have had a Kinetico water softener fitted by Hawker Softeners Ltd And cannot fault the system or the installation. The softener has made all the difference as I live in a very hard water area. The fitting was quick and made no mess at all and the instruction given was simple and easy to understand. I would recommend this product and this company to anyone wanting this type of product… Read Full Review

After using a Kinetico for over 10 years without any problems , switched to a different make. Had so many problems. So i phoned up Kinetico again and Love your watre installed it immediately. Delighted with it. System looks neat and easy to operate. And water feels soft already! Just one recommendation. You need to register the softner amd the serial number is not that easy to find. Many phone calls later i have it. Kinetico should put the serial number on the outside! … Read Full Review

“Best We've Had”

Written on: 22/03/2016 by HalsteadTony (1 review written)

The Kinetico 2020C is the third softener we've installed in 30 years and it is the best! It's compact and the block salt system is fantastically simple. Installation by Hawker Softeners from Colchester by neat and simple. After one month of operation there isn't a sign of scale (in the teapot or coffee maker) or tide marks around the shower, basins or bath or on the taps. Brilliant!… Read Full Review

“Kinetico 2020c intallation by Hawker Softeners Limited”

Written on: 04/03/2016 by Bracken14 (1 review written)

Last month I had a Kinetico 2020c installed by Hawker Softeners Limited following a survey. The installation, including a soft water external tap, was completed in a professional and neat manner. The improvement in water quality was noticed within a couple of days and has continued to improve in softness, leading to less soap and detergent being required. I fully recommend both Kinetico and Hawker Softeners to anyone thinking of having a water softener fitted… Read Full Review
