“I've had my Harvey's block salt softener since having...”

Written on: 02/12/2010 by Salinate (1 review written)

I've had my Harvey's block salt softener since having a new bathroom fitted three months ago. Although it was a difficult installation, it was carried out very professionally. Our water supply is now beautifully soft and lime scale free.

Now to the one and only bad point. The salesman implied that salt replenishment for my family of four would be about once a month. The installer said that every three weeks would be more realistic. In use it consumes the two blocks in just two weeks (£115 p.a… Read Full Review

Dear Sir/Madam,
<br/>
<br/>Sorry to hear you were unhappy with the salt consumption, this can be quite dependent on your incoming supply hardness. If you are still unhappy, please contact our service department and we will see what we can do for you.
<br/>
<br/>Overall, the savings based on consumables and capital depreciation of appliances etc do mean that the softener will pay for itself even in very hard water areas where more salt is needed (without softening, in these areas even greater quantities of consumables are required).
<br/>
<br/>I hope you will get in touch with us.

“We had a Harveys water softener installed 7 months ago...”

Written on: 29/06/2010

We had a Harveys water softener installed 7 months ago and we are really pleased with the softened water. BUT about 2 months ago we have had a problem with the salt spilling out of the casing and collecting on the outside, which we need to wash off every other day. We e-mailed Harveys and they replied that they would pass this on to their service team who would get in touch.
When we had not heard from them we called the sales person who sold it to us, and explained the problem. He thought it… Read Full Review

“We had our Harvey's softener fitted 16 months ago,...”

Written on: 17/05/2010

We had our Harvey's softener fitted 16 months ago, despite thinking that it was rather expensive. The initial sales visit and the installation were both conducted to our complete satisfaction, and we have not regretted the initial outlay. Living in Greater London we have always suffered from extremely hard water, and the difference is incredible. All the claims the company make are justified. A friend bought a softener and fitted it himself for a quarter of the price. However, we have showered… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/05/2010

This company is highly professional and helpful. In London a water softener is essential. We had an earlier product from this fine company Harvey Water Softeners which lasted about 18 years and we have upgraded to a new product, which is easy to use, effective and essential. The plumbing was quite complex in an Edwardian house but was expertly done. The people were professional and of the highest integrity… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/04/2010

I can highly recommend Harvey's block salt water softener.
It doesn't require an electrical supply and there's no complicated control panel - you just put the salt in and that's it.
No more limescale - fantastic!!
The customer service I received was second to none.
Great service and a great product… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2009

We bought our Harvey's water softener 5 years ago after looking into various types of softeners. We have never regretted our choice. It has given us no problems at all. The only attention it needs is to refill the salt blocks every 6-8 weeks (family of four). It is silent other than a little humm/ noise when it performs a particular function. The sales rep and plumber were very professional and factual without any pressure. We have recommended it to several friends who are very happy. The only… Read Full Review

Dear Sir/Madam,

<br/>The Crown does in fact differ in specification. Please get in touch if you would like to know the specifics.

Written on: 17/12/2009 by brownbug78 (1 review written)

By the time my son was three months old, he already had quite bad eczema, and we'd also had to replace the element in our immersion heater twice in 18 months because of scale build up (at a massive cost to us). A friend recommended a Harvey Block Salt Softener and we've never looked back.

Our son's skin cleared up completely in a matter of weeks (we don't even need moisturiser for it) and it was so lovely to have a cup of tea with no muck in it! The softener couldn't be easier to use either… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2009

An excellent product well explained by salesman and professionally fitted into a rather tight space by a competent and experienced plumber.We found an immediate effect on the softness of the water used with consideably less cleaning of taps, basins, shower screens etc. the fitted carbon filter to a dedicated tap for drinking water is efficient, easy to use and gives a high quality, salt free drinking water equivalent to the best bottled water. Although only installed for a few weeks we are… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2009

I have just installed one of these having kicked out a Culligan/Waterside MC250 which was very unreliable. First impressions are excellent - it seems to work fabulously well. Obviously, can't speak for reliability yet but at least it is not encumbered by any electronics, panel etc to go wrong like the Culligan. So far, I would definitely recommend it… Read Full Review

Dear Sir/Madam,
<br/>
<br/>We did used to trade as Kinetico but no longer do so. You can find a more detailed explanation of this and some product comparisons here: http://www.kineticoltd.co.uk/

<br/>Sorry for the confusion.

Written on: 20/08/2009

I've had my Harveys block salt softener for about 5 years now, having moved it from my flat into my new house. In that time I've not had a single problem with it. I like the fact that I just put salt in and it never goes wrong, I don't think it looks particularly stylish compared to others, but having read others experiences with leaks and faults I definitely made the right choice (plus it's hidden inside a kitchen cupboard, not out on display). I use a pack of 2 salt blocks every 7 weeks or so… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2009 by david963 (1 review written)

I've had my Harvey block salt softener for 8 years and it is the best appliance we have ever bought. It makes no noise and is easy to use, just pop two blocks of salt into the unit once a month.

We have had a glass kettle for 6 years and it has never scaled up and we live in Kent in a really hard water area.

My wife uses a tablespoon of washing powder in the washing machine and shampoo,soap and cleaning products seem to last forever.

Also great on the skin and the rash that I used to get under… Read Full Review

We've thought about a water softener for a long time and when we saw the Harveys Block trial offer we thought why not. They say we save money every month. Not sure about that yet but it is true what they say about not using much washing powder.
It is also helping with the dry skin. My wife loves it.
So yes. we are happy bunnys… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/09/2008

I had this Harveys Block Salt Softener direct from the manufacturer and have been impressed from start to finnish. They arrived on time and explained everything really well. The softener is very small and has two cylinders so we don't run out of soft water (despite 6 people in the house). The block salt makes it much easy to load and it seems to be very efficient. I would thoroughly recommend them… Read Full Review
