“Replacement unit installation and commissioning”

Written on: 03/09/2015 by Runningwaters (1 review written)

The installation of the replacement unit after 12 years of continuous use, was swiftly achieved. We were informed that our previous unit had been damaged as a result of the water company changing the use of water treatment chemical formula. The installer was helpful and appeared professionally proficient. He answered all our questions in a satisfactory way and we understand the need for a water softener in our hard water area. The unit is small but we are assured it will filter enough water… Read Full Review

“Replacement Minimax2 Water Softener”

Written on: 15/07/2015 by ClarkesinWimborne (1 review written)

This was a replacement for an eight year old original Minimax softener which had started giving trouble over the last year or so due to a breakdown of the resin bead. The new Minimax2 looks to have substantial improvements over the old machine, including more accurate and reliable volume measurement, it's much quieter and occupies the same space. We are now back to all the benefits of soft water. Thanks to the excellent service of Nigel the replacement was fitted within two days and now has a… Read Full Review

“Compact, very good quality Britsh built. ”

Written on: 21/05/2015 by ben.ham (1 review written)

We have had water softeners since 1988 and have noticed how they have become less bulky. This one is far superior to our last one of 8 years.It had started spewing salt out of the machine. We researched the internet and this one seem to fit our requirements. It is compact and its features are brilliant. The best is not constantly checking salt levels and waiting for regeneration at night. We cannot find any fault with its design. Would recommend. We were very happy with the installer… Read Full Review

“New machine, new experience, looking good!”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by Heath210 (1 review written)

This for me is a replacement for a sixteen year old Kinetico softener which has started giving trouble over the last year or so. I have had a softener in every house since I married fifty years ago so it's a pretty important feature of my living. The new Minimax looks to have substantial improvements in design over the old machine, including more accurate and reliable volume measurement, it's at least as quiet, occupies the same space (or marginally less) and has a useful clear cover to see… Read Full Review

“Very Happy”

Written on: 08/03/2015 by Dougherty385 (1 review written)

I've had a powered water softener for years, but replaced it when the control unit started leaking. To be honest I now think it wasn't working for some time. Within a week of installing the Minimax, my normally dry, brittle hair is calm and luxurious! The water doesn't 'taste weird' like it used to, and the idea that I do not have to even consider the unit's operation, let alone worry about it, is great. I did look around at other similar models, but I preferred the price of this one, and that… Read Full Review

“I thought soft water was for wimps until.........”

Written on: 10/12/2014 by diviner (1 review written)

Until recently I thought soft water was for wimps. The fact that I had to help the plumber carry my old water tank downstairs was just part of my fitness regime. However the straw that finally broke the camel's back was having to call the shower service man twice in a year to stop the wetroom shower continuously dripping. This can't go on, I thought, so I took the plunge into the world of water softeners. I used a company recommended by a personal friend (always the best way) and have not… Read Full Review

“does the job, efficiently and quietly.”

Written on: 19/11/2014 by turkinthecity (1 review written)

We've had the minimax for about a month now and we're wondering why we didn't get one years ago. With the water being scale-free, faucets, taps and sinks get shiny with just a wipe and no cleaning detergent. In the shower, with just a drop of shampoo, we get an explosion of lather. The appliance itself is very quiet and because it has two tanks, we get a continuous source of softened water. The regeneration process us also fairly quick and quiet. The only downside is that you have to buy salt… Read Full Review

“Unique customer service”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by duffcooper (1 review written)

Finding a product that you like and a product that produces the goods is rare indeed. We struck gold having decided at first to enquire about water softeners, we had a visit from a lovely lady armed with all the facts, figures and the kit to show my wife and I our water was truly hard. We signed up and about a week later our plumber arrived and after about two hours our Minimax M2 was fitted. No fuss no mess. Now in Yorkshire we value our cups of tea so much better now with soft water, no… Read Full Review

“Best decision yet!”

Written on: 09/01/2014 by grimwau (1 review written)

After years of cleaning hard water based marks from baths, shower screens, tiles, taps and shower heads it made total sense to install a water softener prior to having a new bathroom fitted. This was particularly important as well as we have just had a new kitchen and it would be of great benefit in extending the lives of the appliances and new boiler as well as keeping limescale from marking the granite worktops… Read Full Review

“M2 Minimax great machine”

Written on: 23/11/2013

We had this installed to replace our existing 15 year old electrical softener. The M2 Minimax is great, makes the water much softer, which is very noticeable when showering or taking a bath. The wife and children love it. The engineer was able to fit it very quickly. It uses salt blocks, not tablets, so much easier to refill than the old softener. Also, the amount of the salt block remaining is visible through a panel, so can see at a glance when it needs refilling. Go on, buy one now! … Read Full Review

“Its really Good”

Written on: 10/11/2013

We previously had a single-cylinder electric softener. We had all sorts of problems with this flooding, stopping working and beeping in the middle of the night. And eventually it packed up completely (leaking from the top) after only 3/4 years. We now have the Harvey M2 MiniMax installed by Capital Softeners. Was quite pricey. But is a nice compact unit, doesn't need plugging in, really simple to use (nothing to go wrong) and really easy to see when the salt has run out and put the new blocks… Read Full Review

“What a difference to everyday life at home”

Written on: 07/11/2013 by BrianDobson (2 reviews written)

The supplier, Nigel from Pureflow Water Systems, Christchurch, gave a very detailed explanation and demonstration of the benefits of having a water softener installed. There was no pressure or hard sales person techniques employed. It was interesting that the benefits became apparent within a very short time of the installation taking place. Our stainless steel sinks and drainers started to sparkle and the usual limey streaks were conspicuous by their absence. Showering and bathing became… Read Full Review

“Minimax M2 review”

Written on: 07/09/2013 by mandu1 (1 review written)

Works well, very quiet when regenerating and salt seems to be lasting quite well, early days yet. Neat fitment by Silksream. Easy to load salt. Water is nice and soft and the sink and showers do shine now due to the lack of scale. My skin feels softer with less hard patches on my feet. So far so good… Read Full Review

“No More Hardwater...”

Written on: 23/05/2012 by DalTailor (2 reviews written)

Harvey’s Water Softener. Water is just water right? Well, that’s exactly what we used to think until we had a Harvey’s water softener fitted. Not to get too excited about water, although the difference we experienced with the water quality after having a Harvey's water softener fitted was the difference between chalk and cheese... Granted we live in an area with abnormal levels of hard water (even though the water board feel it is expectable). Even the simplest thing like drinking a cup… Read Full Review

We have owned a Harveys water softner for less than a month so are still waiting to see what the running costs are going to be. However the service was 1st class. The rep and the installer were both extremly professional and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. If the product is as good as the service we will be very pleased… Read Full Review

“Harvey's Water Softener”

Written on: 17/07/2011 by MaryNixon (1 review written)

Why did we not get one before? It has been amazing. We live in an area with extremely hard water and have suffered for many years with scaling of our kettle and white goods particularly. Within a week the shower head and kettle had descaled themselves!! We no longer buy bottled water, as our separate drinking water tap gives us lovely clear water instantly. Previously we had to run off several glasses of water to get a clear flow. The decrease in the amount of washing powder, especially, has… Read Full Review
