“Our new soft water”

Written on: 19/12/2011 by ivorblight (1 review written)

The installation was quick and caused little disruption. Although I doubt we will make the investment back in savings, that was not really the point. We are very happy with the showers we now take especially hair washing which produces a much softer result. No stains on the glass of the shower now and much easier to clean baths and sinks. Overall we consider it well worth the investment… Read Full Review

“It really does work! ”

Written on: 16/12/2011 by raffles89 (1 review written)

We love the savings and the pleasure of using nice soap in soft water and the amazing reduction in the amount of washing powder we use. The system looks after itself without fuss and feeding it with salt blocks is so simple. There is nothing we don't like about it --- sorry!!!… Read Full Review

“Convenient and efficient”

Written on: 13/12/2011 by iancatherine (2 reviews written)

I considered that the absence of electrics was appealing, but the most attractive feature is that it uses salt only on demand, making the unit very efficient. Our old unit was on a timed regeneration regsrdless of water consumption. We were very pleased with the installation… Read Full Review

“Water Softner Reduces Eczma & Dry Skin”

Written on: 13/12/2011 by GillJd (1 review written)

Brilliant, easy to use, water softener. Has many benefits to the general household - no more limescale which means cleaner looking bathrooms & kitchens and also no more limescale in appliances - boiler, iron, washing machines, kettle! Makes a much cleaner tasting cuppa tea - very important in our house! One of the main benefits has been for our son who has dry skin - enough to need moisturiser after every shower - used to drive him nuts! Now he just get's the odd flare up of his eczma - mainly… Read Full Review

“It's soft! No scum here!”

Written on: 13/12/2011 by mikearnold (1 review written)

It's a good looking machine and takes up very little space. It doesn't need an electrical supply and automatically adjusts its operation according to water usage rate. You can easily add the blocks of salt then simply forget about it, apart from occassionaly glancing at the transparent… Read Full Review

“STILL UNDER TRIAL BUT LOOKING VERY GOOD”

Written on: 12/12/2011 by TonyFoulkes (1 review written)

We had a few teething problems because the water softener was installed almost at the same time as two new bathrooms (unvented tank)and the discovery of what looked like a double mains supply. Naturally our plumber said its the water softener that was reducing the flow - was he right or wrong. It doesn't matter because your guys sorted it out with a great touch of skill and charm. Which reminds me my trial period is almost up and I had better say yes we will buy it in the next few days!… Read Full Review

“Really pleased I had fitted would not go back now”

Written on: 12/12/2011

I have noticed so much difference in the water, as here it was so hard - cleaning is easier and using the washing powder has made everything brighter, whiter and softer. The service I have received from Harveys in respect of the installation has been second to none. They were very thorough and went through all possibilities for best location. I have had my water softner in place for two months now in the short time I have noticed the difference, radiators seem hotter and cleaning is a lot… Read Full Review

“Very Happy with Harveys Water Softner unit”

Written on: 12/12/2011

once you`ve had shower in Cornwall or Somerset you will always want to have such a soft skin and hair without applying balms and conditioners. that is what we have now - Cornish water in our taps. If you concerned about coffees and teas - no need. Taste is excellent. Notrace of salt whatsover! Recently fitted new boiler and the plumber praised the way the unit was fitted (did not affect the water preasure). I can now use a 1/4 of the soap i used to use for the washing and it smels excellent… Read Full Review

“Harvey Water Softener”

Written on: 29/11/2011

Just moved into present house had rival softner before. Decided to go with Harvey's because of the increased flow capacity. Not at all disappointed salt consumption is average and the water is noticably better. The softener looks fine and with a perspex lid it is easy to see how the salt is doing without taking the lid off. When the salt needs renewing the red line can clearly be seen again taking guess work out of measuring the salt blocks. Regeneration is effortless and silent. We are… Read Full Review

“Harvey water softeners, support”

Written on: 21/11/2011 by spanman15 (1 review written)

We have used water softeners supplied by Harvey for over 26 years they have been largely trouble free. However following a bit of replumbing my softener failed to regenerate and we started to get hard water from the tap. I emailed Harvey softeners and got a reply within hours giving me the contact number for the technical team. I called and was given easy to follow step by step instructions on how to initiate a manual regeneration and the softener is working again. It would have been easy for… Read Full Review

I am very pleased so far with the softener. the bathrooms and kitchen are gleaming! I have only had it a few days so am yet to notice a difference to costs of detergents etc but I am delighted that I no longer have to use strong chemicals to clean the bathrooms.

“Harvey Water Softner”

Written on: 16/11/2011 by JerrySandys (1 review written)

We have been happy customers of Harvey Water Softners for nearly 20 years. I recommend a Harvey Water Softner to anyone who wants to enjoy clean shower doors, bathroom tiles, sinks and taps free of scale and scum. The shower heads are as clean as when they were new. We also have a water purifier connected to ours and having clean water on tap is excellent. The inside of the kettle is as clean as the day we bought it. We also use far less shampoo and detergents than before. We wouldn't live in a… Read Full Review

“Brilliant service, brilliant product, terrific price”

Written on: 16/11/2011 by Marihelen (1 review written)

We ordered a Harvey Water softener because everything was getting furred up! Taps, shower, kettle, dishwasher, washing machine were all limed, and we had no idea how bad the central heating was because we couldn't see inside the tank or the radiators. The Harvey's guys came out, talked us through the product and what it does, make sure we were clear about the installation and the price. We ordered and the softener is now installed. Installation was really painless. The engineer arrived on… Read Full Review
