“Soft Water Installation”

Pretty effortless process. Very polite and courteous staff came to inspect the site and confirm our requirements. Very polite and considerate plumber attended to do the work. Left the system tested and working, neat and tidy. Now one month later, we are delighted with the results. If you are in doubt, get on and do it, you won't regret the decision… Read Full Review

“Why didn't we get one sooner!”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by GMoore (1 review written)

Living in a hard water area, we have been amazed at what the Harvey Block Salt Softener has done for us. Everything we were told is true from soft skin to quicker boiling kettles, using less soaps and gels to spending less time cleaning, it really is amazing. Installation was quick and hassle free and the payment options very convenient. We've already had the neighbours round to show them the benefits and I'm sure they'll be ordering soon! If you suffer from dry skin (as I did), the Harvey… Read Full Review

“Harveys water softeners”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by ng117899 (1 review written)

Quote lady very nice and went through everything and I did not feel any pressure into buying. Quick response from when I returned the quote papers. Did not have to wait too long for a convenient day and time. Fitter turned up on time and was very pleasant. He got on with the job and cleared up after. He went through the softener bits and bobs with me and answers all my questions. Our water is lovely and soft and I have noticed a big difference especially with my 18 month old son who has very… Read Full Review

“So Very Pleased”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by honeydobson (1 review written)

Before we had our Harveys salt water softener we had very hard water, so much limescale had built up on our appliances and shower doors it was impossible to remove it. Now with the water softener, not only do we have really soft water, we also see the limescale being broken down. My iron works fantastically without clogging up, also the kettle and other appliciances. There is nothing negative about having the water softener installed, apart from i wished i had done it years ago… Read Full Review

“As a user of several weeks only”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by aanddharvey (1 review written)

I like the fact that it just gets on with its job without attention other than a dose of salt now and again. Just one practical point: We wish there was a indicator of when more salt is needed; perhaps a red area down the box where the salt goes to show that it's time to put more salt in. The first time we put fresh salt in too early and then the lid would not close; so we had to take it out again. But this is a small detail. We do find our kettle soon shows signs of scale. But when we teat the… Read Full Review

“Get one, you wont be sorry!”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by Alan8 (1 review written)

We were very impressed with Harveys beginning with the sales advice and help and ending with the installation. Water softners are not cheap and with not knowing much about them, except that we wanted one, the sales lady was very informative and didn't pressure us to make a quick decision. Simon, the plumber who installed the softner was equally helpful with advice on why it should be installed inside our house rather than outside because of the location available and leaving a small 'drinking… Read Full Review

“We should have bought a water softener years ago”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by Moonraker1937 (1 review written)

We have had our water softener only four weeks. The original demonstration was very good and clearly showed the benefits. The installation took a morning and is a nice tidy job. The softener is in the garage and the pipework was installed in such a manner that it runs behind shelving in the garage and then under the kitchen units and is completely out of sight. The water in the house was noticably softer within days. We are very pleased with the product… Read Full Review

“Harveys Water Softener”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by roy.kempston (1 review written)

From the initial visit to discuss the water softener and its fitting, to the installation we were very pleased with the service that the people working for the company provide. We are now further pleased with the performance of the unit, with its lovely soft water around the house, and miss it when we are away. We would have no hesitation in recommending Harveys to anyone else who are considering having a softener installed… Read Full Review

Having our Harvey's water softener now for a few months it leaves us in no doubt that we made a really good choice.The machine is very compact,ours is under the sink,easy to replace the salt when required,with no trouble at all. It makes the world of difference to the water quality noticeable when washing and showing.The saving on washing products is also an advantage.

“Prompt rsponse and good installation”

Written on: 02/05/2012 by jdandhrb (1 review written)

Within six days of the representative's visit Harvey's installer was on site to fit the softener. He was punctual, smart and polite. He recommended a different and better position for the equipment than had been suggested at the first visit. The work was completed tidily and quietly with minor adjustments to the existing plumbing to accommodate it.Within the day we appreciated the benefit of the cold water; by the next morning the hot water in the shower was appreciably softer. So far- a… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2012 by colcruisespec (1 review written)

From the initial call to Harvey's expressing our interest, through the salesman who explained in great detail the advantages of the water softener, to the installation by a friendly and competent fitter,the operation could not be faulted. We have now had soft water for about six weeks and the difference in the quality is palpable. Very happy with both the product and installer… Read Full Review

“Grandma, why is your water so soft and silky ....”

Written on: 18/03/2012

so said our granddaughter Hannah when she came to stay, which emphasises one benefit of the water softener. Also, I am pleasantly surprised by how little shaving gel I need to apply now. My wife also comments on how clean our metal sink remains all the time now and how little washing powders etc are needed. The water softener was priced over our budget and believe a slightly lower price would prove more acceptable to potential customers… Read Full Review

“Curate's egg - good in parts”

Written on: 08/03/2012 by brendanmyoung (3 reviews written)

Bit of a shaky start when the fitter arrived. The sales rep had told us that a certain fitting option was very do-able for us but the fitter confirmed that would not be an option. This has left us with a big wooden box along the front of the house that carries the pipes to the garage where the softener is fitted. Once up and running, we enjoyed the immediate benefits of the scum free tea, a much quieter kettle and nice showers. The down side is the taste of the drinking water. Every now and… Read Full Review

“Harvey water softener!”

Written on: 21/02/2012 by Dennisjanet (1 review written)

I am originally from Manchester and didn't know what hard water was until I moved to London then I realised that when I showered it was like being bathed in sand. To this end I bought the original Kinetico Compact water softener. It was excellent but a bit of a pain when it came to shovelling in a load of tablet salt. Have now just moved to the East Midlands and had no hesitation in buying the new model from Harveys. It lives in the garage and all I do is put salt in the device about every… Read Full Review

“early days but so far so good”

Written on: 20/02/2012

We have only had the softener for a week or two but we are delighted so far. We particularly like the absence of water spotting and streaks caused by limescale from the hard water. We have also welcomed the reduced use of soap powders etc.The machine was easier to fit than I imagined and not so cumbersome. The fitter was extemely profient and pleasant. The jury is still out on whether or not it will help ease very dry skin conditions but so far so good… Read Full Review

“Soft water in West Sussex, finally!”

Written on: 19/02/2012

In 3 months we have only had to clean the inside of the kettle once & it is still sparkling! Suddenly the bathroom tiles are shiney again. My hair & skin have improved massively, we live in West Sussex where the water is very hard, so we always suffered with dry itchy skin & now that is a thing of the past. There is no problem at all with drinking the water, we were concerned initally that everything would taste salty but to date this has not been an issue. The water softener is compact &… Read Full Review

“Great Water Softener - dead easy to use”

Written on: 17/02/2012 by dca860 (3 reviews written)

I am pleased with my product but it was repaired a total of 5 times before it was right. Perhaps a Friday afternoon example but nonetheless. Initially squealed when cycling. Then I got regular salt taste in the water. This was repaired but the squeal returned. This was repaired and then then the rain flow started to continuously drip and also the joint with the pipe leaked into the softener (which cause excessive salt consumption). It was finally OK and is now approaching 10 years old. I have… Read Full Review
