“A good "ion exchange" water Softener”

Written on: 01/07/2019 by GlennPsion (1 review written)

Does as it is expected. Using in apartment not house. Harvey's water softener Uses 'ion exchange' principle, so needs salt blocks . . . 1 block (4KG) per month. Sold in blocks of 2 (8KG) for about £7. PLUS: Does as advertised - no lime scale on sinks, baths and surfaces, kettles - no lime scale in appliances: Kettles, Coffee machines, washing machine -Does lather up the soap more NEGATIVE: Harvey's web site does not advertise the negatives well enough: - Its ion replacement: Calcium, Ca… Read Full Review

Hi, thank you for your review. We are so glad you are experiencing no lime scale and finding your soap is lathering up more.
We do give an option of having a hard water drinking line installed. Drinking water recommendations, these quote that the maximum limit of sodium is 200 mg/l (milligrams per litre). This sodium limit will be exceeded where the water is extremely hard, for example above 425 ppm. This is assuming that the sodium level in the public water supply is zero.
Anyone on a low sodium diet or for making baby feeds for infants under 6 months old we advise to use the hard water drinking line. Other than this it would be down to preference of taste.
If you are finding there is still soap when using your washing machine we do advise to cut right down on the amount of product that you are using.
Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the service department. Thank you. Rosie

“Great product”

Written on: 30/06/2019 by PJ52 (1 review written)

I had my water softener installed recently. Service from start to finish was very good. Person that came to install the softener was very nice and had a very good knowledge about the product. Everything was explained to me very well from first point of contact and initial visit to tell me about the product. I suffer from eczema and I must say I can now see improvement in my skin already. My partner also notices an improvement in her hair as it is no longer flaky and hair feels nice and soft… Read Full Review

“Could this be the best water softener?”

Written on: 28/06/2019 by Irism272 (1 review written)

Shiny chrome taps, glassware is de-scaling and washing machine uses much less powder and shower easier to clean. Filtered water makes tea without much residue in the tea pot. It is quiet and unobtrusive, fitted at short order. Would recommend to anyone in a hard water area… Read Full Review

“Already recommended to my friends”

Written on: 24/06/2019 by Rileyf212 (1 review written)

Everything goes smoothly and professionally. They worked very hard to install it in the location I decided and engineers are very considerate. They left the place clean and tidy. For the machine itself it works as what I was told. And simply just add salt and that’s all. Nothing too complicated. My dry skin problem was eliminated after I install the softener. And happily I recommended it to all my friends. Quite worth the money. The only thing I don’t like is it does make small noise… Read Full Review

Hello,

Thank you for leaving us this review. We're so pleased you are happy with the service provided so far and with the installation of your softener. It's good to hear that you are already experiencing the benefits of softened water and that it's improving any dry skin.

Thank you for telling your friends about us too! Regarding the 6 bags of salt, if you are speaking about our Refer a Friend Scheme, you will receive this complimentary salt after the person you referred has their installation.

If you are referring to the salt that we send you up your installation, this should be sent out to you the day after your installation took place, please call us if you have not received this.

Thank you
Isabel

Hi there,

Thank you for leaving us this review, we're pleased you're happy with our product!

It's perfectly fine to drink softened water but if you prefer the taste of hard water, we offer to install a separate hard line with an optional filter connected that removed any chlorine, rust/ sand particles and odours from the hard water.

If you're interested in having a separate hard line and tap installed, please call us.

Thanks,
Isabel

“Getting a Harvey’s Water Softner”

Written on: 24/06/2019 by bluelindyloo (1 review written)

We were a bit doubtful we would finally be able to have a clean show as my family do in all there bathrooms in Scotland. I am so happy that in just over two months I’m having results. My black and white bathroom has always been a nightmare to clean. Everyone advised us not to do black and white but I love it. It has taken this time to really notice a difference but now I’m getting the results I always dreamed of. I’m sure by the end of our free three month trail it will be the clean… Read Full Review

That's so good to hear you can see the difference already, it won't be long until your lovely bathroom glistens and shines thanks to softened water! You will save a lot of money over the years on cleaning products too, as the softened water does all the lathering for you!

We're really happy that you're happy and we hope you continue to experience the great benefits for years to come.

“Can’t live without it now ”

Written on: 21/06/2019 by Ixasio (1 review written)

Being Scottish I’m used to soft water. Moving to the South East of England I couldn’t believe the amount of white marks on everything that water comes into contact with. I had a water softer. In my previous house and it used electricity and the salt replenishment was messy. With the Harvey System there is no need for power and the salt is in solid bocks so it’s a matter of popping one in at the right time. So no more water marks no more need for Viakal, less bubble bath needed to get… Read Full Review

“No more limescale!”

Written on: 18/06/2019 by ComesfromFleet (1 review written)

Firstly, Harvey's aren't exaggerating when they claim that you'll notice the softened water almost immediately. From washing to cleaning the results are brilliant and I can't imagine going back to 'hard' water now. I'd just warn purchasers though that they are expensive and I live in a 3 storey house and was told a small machine, placed in a cupboard, would be fine. On the day of installation the plumber said immediately that I would need a larger machine that comes with a separate salt… Read Full Review

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. It's great to hear you are pleased with the change in your water, we're pleased you noticed this almost straight away.

I do apologise that you were originally told a HV3 softener would be suitable for your property, our representatives will usually determine which softener you need during the free home demonstration, it may have been that an installer thought the larger machine would be better upon closer inspection. Nevertheless, I do apologise this wasn't noticed right away.

Regarding the noise, although the softener makes some noise, it shouldn't be loud enough to disturb you. If you'd like to give us a call on the number below we would be more than happy to send out a technical engineer to look into this for you.

Thank you.
Isabel

“Home Changer!”

Written on: 15/06/2019 by Stuant (1 review written)

We live in a very hard water area and have been using the water softener for just over a month now. What a difference it makes!Shower glass stays clean, kettle still gleams, soap lathers well, dishwasher works better, the list goes on. The installation is tucked away without destroying any cupboard space and no one even knows its there... All hot drinks (except maybe tea to the discerning palate) taste the same, but even the tea taste has been got used to now. Wish we'd had one installed when… Read Full Review

“What a pain to install”

Written on: 15/06/2019 by Onizuka (1 review written)

The installer had a real job installing ours, he did not complain, moan, groan or anything. He just got on with to ensure we had what we ordered. From then came the delivery of the extra salt, no issues carrying bags and bags of salt, all done without any complaints of having to climb several flights of stairs each bag. The sink taps are getting shiny agin, parts look new, the rest will follow. The taste of the water has changed, we are getting used to it, we love it it for nicer skin… Read Full Review

“Highly recommended! ”

Written on: 09/06/2019 by VJN1994 (1 review written)

I suffered with dry skin after moving to an area with hard water. My new build home quickly built up limescale on items such as taps and shower screens. I spoke to a neighbor who recently had a Harvey water softener installed. They mentioned how instantly they noticed the difference. So the person I dealt with came out to see me within 3 hours of calling Harvey up and I had my new machine installed two weeks later, the fitting was really simple as I was worried about any damage to my new… Read Full Review

“Wonders of Harvey softner”

I recently had Harvey softner installed in my house and OMG. As live in the area of very hard water, using the sister had made our water treat sweeter. My bath time has become enjoyable and I use less soap. I liked that it was not operated with electric and is simple to use. The salt tables are easily available and get delivered at home.

“Harveys make water soft, soft water makes magic”

Written on: 03/06/2019 by pcco (1 review written)

Cheesy heading ? yes but it's true ! Before I had my water softener installed I was sceptical about the claims made in the adverts. Now I know differently, my shower room taps do not have the limescale dullness, the glass screen does not streak and there is no lime scale around the basin or taps. I use virtually no soap or shampoo either in the shower or washing up liquid in the kitchen and I need less liquid detergent and do not need conditioner for my washing. Having soft water in my home is… Read Full Review
