“Harveys Block Salt”

Written on: 18/06/2012 by DWilliams1945 (2 reviews written)

We have had a Harvey's water softener for about six weeks and are already noticing a significant difference in the softness of our water. This is evident in many ways, through, for example, the more pleasant 'feel' of the water when showering or shaving.We look forward to many years of good quality… Read Full Review

“Excellent exczema control”

Written on: 18/06/2012

Since Harvey's fitted our water softener my children's eczema, which was horrific and all over their bodies, is now only in the usual places, ie behind knees and elbow. They are much less itchy and happier. I am finding it much more manageable and I am using less horrible steroid cream which is great for peace of mind! I couldn't recommend Harvey's water softeners more for people in our predicament as watching your children suffer is one of the worst things to have to deal with… Read Full Review

“Harveys Water Softener is working really well”

Written on: 18/06/2012 by gilmoudi (1 review written)

I have had problems with the water quality as I live in the Thames Valley especially with the white deposits which were starting to form on taps and also to stain the blac marble surfaces I have in my kitchen . We installed the softener about 6 weeks ago and these issues have all disappeared and the product is doing what it said it would do. It is easy to work, I dont need to manually operate the system and it is pretty much silent running… Read Full Review

“What a difference”

Written on: 18/06/2012 by XanaduSue (2 reviews written)

The installation in our house wasnt straightforward, given that it is a 3 storey house, with 2 kitchens and we wanted the box outside. None of the above were a problem, and we were even able to try the softener for a short period before we committed to buying. The difference it has made to our appliances, bathroom fitments and surfaces is remarkable. Fabulous product. I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone Sue Cameron… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/06/2012

We have used the Harvey water softener for 6 months and it has changed the washing cleaning procedures so much, gone is the ring around the sink after shaving, the shower head is sparkling clean no lime scale at all, washing up leaves every thing so sqeaky clean just a little washing liquid and a bowl full of bubbles, no grease lines when the bowl is emptied no sign of lime scale, we used to have so much lime scale on everything now it's just clean really clean. Just put two blocks of Salt in… Read Full Review

“Goodbye to limescale”

Written on: 07/06/2012 by LindaRyder6 (0 reviews written)

I've had the Harvey's water softener for a month now and the bathroom is a pleasure instead of a disgrace. I can even finely adjust the hot/cold mix in the shower as the tap isn't blocked with limescale. Before I had to boil or freeze. The disappearance of the black gunge on the taps is a delight. I am very pleased with my decision to install the softener. Skin also feels happier!… Read Full Review

“Why didn't I do this 30 years ago!!”

Written on: 01/06/2012 by anthonypbaldwin (0 reviews written)

We had the presentation, it seemed too good to be true...surely. Yes lets go for it,they seem very confident of their product. Instalation day, a really friendlyand helpful plumber sorted everything, with no mess! Our new life with a water softener begins, there are comparisons with "how it used to be" and Yes there is a difference. It's been nearly three months now, chalky deposits have dissappeared, we have stopped comparing and our softener sits in the cupboard under the sink. I have just… Read Full Review

“Harveys Block Salt Softener”

Written on: 31/05/2012

I have renting my new water softener for about the 3 months initial offer period and am pleased to say that so far the performance of the system appears to be matching the claims in Harveys marketing information - at least what I can remember. However, I believe you really need at least 6 months to fully test the system before converting from a rental into a purchase. My reasoning here is as follows:- 1. The full effects of de-scaling on my hot water cylinder may take this long and I want to… Read Full Review

“Nicholls Softener Review”

Written on: 30/05/2012 by 64nich69 (1 review written)

Although we have only had the softener for just over a month, we have already noticed some differences. E.g. glasses are sparkling clean after washing up and are not marked; the water feels much softer on our skin and we are using less detergent in the washing machine and dish washer. The engineer who installed the softener was excellent. He looked at all the options and discussed them with me prior to installation. The softener has not interfered with our water flow or the operation of the combi… Read Full Review

“Neat and tidy water softener”

Written on: 26/05/2012 by BALH (1 review written)

The Harvey Block Salt Softener is a compact and very efficient unit which was installed very quickly and neatly in a situation that I (no plumber, me) thought was virtually impossible without major removal of kitchen furniture. We had been used to a communal soft water supply until it was terminated four years ago and longed to replace it but had held off because I thought it would be too difficult to fix. I only wish we had seen the Harvey brochure earlier! The web site is a delight, the… Read Full Review

“Works well, low maintenance”

Written on: 25/05/2012 by AlexFThomson (2 reviews written)

After we decided to get a water softener, we choose Harvey's because of the low maintenance / good performance. Installation was very straightforward and Harvey's were helpful. We had a sales visit to check requirements and offer a demo, and then the plumber arrived to install it. Fortunately there was space under the kitchen sink for the softener - it's a fairly substantial piece of kit even if it's small for a water softener. it took about 5 hours to install I think. The plumber was pretty… Read Full Review

“We have been astounded by this excellent British Company!”

Written on: 24/05/2012

After I hit the button to request a quote online from Harveys (when researching different water softners to replace our very old and obsolete one which had sprung a leak) I was initially extremely nervous of what I thought would be a hard sell as to why we should buy a Harveys Block Salt Softner instead of the Kinetico that we were also considering. This couldn't have been further from what we actually experienced!! There was no hard sell and we can honestly say that this excellent British… Read Full Review

“A great deal to try before you buy”

Written on: 24/05/2012 by JamesHM (1 review written)

A very professional company to deal with. The three month trial is a great way to see if this product works for you. It did for us and the three month rental was deducted off the purchase price. No heavy sales pressure and the installer also sorted out my plumbing under the sink at no extra charge! He was a brilliant old style plumber who did a quality job. I would not hesitate to recommend Harvey to anyone and they are a British Company ! James M … Read Full Review

“Harveys Water Softener very pleased”

Written on: 24/05/2012

We researched salt based water softeners because we live in a very hard water area and were advised that any other type would not cope with our level of hardness. The Harveys web site was excellent, explaining the history of Harveys and the science of the system. We had a very helpful visit from a Harveys rep who offered us a purchase or rent option. (With an option to purchase later). We took the rental option and so far, (7 weeks) we are getting used to the soft water. We take all drinking… Read Full Review
