“Noticed the difference immediately!!”

Written on: 25/08/2014 by tractorboyholmes (3 reviews written)

I had a Kinetico 2020c installed on 20/08/14 and we were initially told that it could take 7-14 days for the soft water to come through on hot water once the tank had fully emptied out all of the hard water. We had a testing kit given to us so could test ourselves. Obviously the cold water was available immediately and we were making use of our K2 drinking system also. Although excited about the hot water yet to come through I did wonder to myself if I'd actually notice any difference. Well… Read Full Review

“works perfectly and is quite too.”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Kamari459 (1 review written)

I'd contacted Kinetico directly and they were extremely helpful and answered all of my question and put me in touch with the local supplier. The company who fitted our Kinetico was simply great, tidy and quick. Previously in our last house we had a harvey's water softner which was ok but i must say the Kinetico is by far quiter and easier to install the salt blocks as the lid is hinged. I've not got any negatives about this water softner although for the full 10 year warrenty you need to… Read Full Review

“Fantastic machine and great service ”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by MikeyMm (1 review written)

We have had our 2020c for 3 months now purchasing it from UKh20 and have been totally impressed from the start. The level of service from UKh2o has been excellent from initial visit through too installation totally recommend them. The softener itself although not cheap produces totally soft water and is easy to load with salt and appears economical compared to our old softener. We looked at other non electric softeners but none compared to the Kinetico… Read Full Review

hi, Hawker Softeners ltd here, sorry to hear you are having a problem please contact kinetico head office and they will solve problem....it is poss it is not a problem on softener..as the salt consumption is dependent on water consumption and if you have any leaky ball valves in toilet systems or loft water storage tanks this can give the same effect any any other leaks.
I am sure the dealer you purchased the system from will be able to solve or you could contact then head office.
all the best

“Kinetico 2020C”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by fserrano (1 review written)

Kinetico 2020 is very silent actually makes no noise at all and salt consumption is very low compared to my previous water softener. Service from Hawker softeners was fantastic. They responded very quickly to my request provided clear information and advise about product benefits and installed the new water softener in the same day. I am really satisfied… Read Full Review

“Great product with great service”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by PBladen13 (1 review written)

I hire my softener from Ukh2O in Ferring. It's brilliant makes such a massive difference to my black and chrome bathroom which is always streak free and no more scale in the kettle! No more problems with the children's skin getting sore and lots less spending on cleaning and bathing products what's not to love! UKh2O gave us great advice the installation was faultless. The one time I had a water pressure problem they came out within an hour and got it sorted and it want even the softner… Read Full Review

“Kinetico Water Softener - very happy with it”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by Rogelio352 (1 review written)

We had this machine installed a couple of weeks ago and am very happy with it. The sales person was very nice and not pushy, which I appreciated. Having spoken to many friends, I decided on the Kinetico as it had the best feedback. The company did a proper survey of how to install it before the plumber came to fit it. The plumber arrived on time, knew what needed to be done and where, but double checked with me. The plumber himself was very nice and did exactly what he should do with no… Read Full Review

“Recent Purchaser Comments”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Twiickenham (1 review written)

I have recently bought this so cannot speak for the long term. I like the fact that it is compact and does not intrude into the small space where it is housed. It is also as stylish as a water softened can be. I like the 10 year warranty. The salt blocks are easy to load and easy to store which adds to the efficiency. I think that Kinetico picks their dealers with care as my local one for Twickenham (Watercare Softeners Ltd in Whitton) did not do any pressurised selling but were very… Read Full Review

“UKH2o”

Written on: 08/07/2014 by MarcusE (1 review written)

The 2020C is a superb piece of kit. The installation by UKH20 was faultless, the engineer polite, clean and tidy. My water is now softer and my cleaning liquids, soap and shampoo has reduced by 75% I now spend less time cleaning my shower and the water is softer to drink. I have happily recommended UKH20 to my friends and shall continue doing so… Read Full Review

We have had a water softener installed by UKh2o and cannot fault the product or installation. We run a business which have very limited times for any works being done and UKh2o were very accommodating and worked around us. The installation was done efficiently and the fitter was helpful. We cannot recommend the product and installation highly enough… Read Full Review

“Replacement Water Softener”

Written on: 17/06/2014 by mvernon (2 reviews written)

Needed to replace a poorly functioning 7 year old softener. After research I chose Kinetico 2020c. It uses considerably less salt, and the block salt is much easier to handle than the 25 kilo bags of tablet salt. Previous softener always went into regeneration if there was a power failure (even for a few seconds), so it appeals that the Kinetico is driven only by water pressure and will not have this problem. Installation supplier was first class. Efficient and prompt service from Hawker… Read Full Review

“Terrible Installers”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by Dollydot (1 review written)

Having had a Kinetico water softener for 15 years in our old house and loved it, when we moved we were keen to install one in our new house. Unfortunately UKH20 of Ferring, the appointed installers were, to say the least amateurs. It was installed on 3 February and because the plumber adjusted the boiler, we were left with cold showers. After several visits and the director attempting to reset the boiler but made it worse, in desperation he called in a Valient boiler engineer to reset the… Read Full Review

“What an improvement!”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by Genesis356 (1 review written)

Having had an old electric softener for many years I chose to replace it with a Kinetico 2020C supplied by Hawker Softeners of Essex. I never realised just how much of an improvement this would bring: I had read about scale free sinks and basins, but never experienced it with the old unit. Not only are basin surfaces now smooth, but it appears that the years of accumulated scale around taps is clearing too. They were very helpful throughout, from dealing patiently with my many product queries… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2014 by andrewspeed (1 review written)

I just had the a new Kinetico 2020c high flow fitted after my old Kinetico Softener broke down after 25 years. Really pleased with it, the flow rate is much better through the showers and the block salt is much easier to load/store. Would highly recommend this softener and our local Kinetico dealer: Love Your Water Ltd who upgraded all the valves & hoses for extra flow rate. Mr A Speed … Read Full Review

“Kinetico Water Softener - Fantastic Value for Money”

Written on: 23/05/2014 by SabJenner (1 review written)

We had a Hawker Softener Kinetico 2020C installed in November 2013, and a tri flow tap with the water filter, we have definitely noticed the difference. Our shower now does not build lime scale, our boiler and other appliances will live a longer life. You can really feel the difference, less cleaning, do not have to buy so many cleaning products. The insulation guys were great and would recommend to friends and family. Thank you so much, would not have chosen anything else. … Read Full Review

Written on: 11/05/2014 by Petesisson (1 review written)

We had a Hawker Softner Kinetico 2020C installed in April 2014, a month later we can definitely notice the difference. There is no lime scale build up at all on any of the products within our house. This product is definitely worth the money paid, survey and installation was very quick along with being convenient to suit us. The guarantee that is offered was very reassuring. Thank you very much for your time… Read Full Review
