Hard and Soft Water

In the UK there are hard and soft areas. Rain water in its natural form is completely soft and t’s not until it hits the ground that it begins to absorb minerals found within the earth, which can lead to hard water.In hard water areas the ground is typically a composition of chalk and magnesium, which is very easily absorbed by water. In soft water areas the composition of the earth is typically hard stone, such as granite, leading to those areas being naturally soft. Find out about the different hard and soft areas of the UK.

Improve Skin and Hair Condition

Did you know that the residue from hard water stays on your skin and clogs your pores? This is a factor in many skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and very dry skin. The scum can also serve as a home for bacteria, leading to nappy rash and itchiness, the mineral build-up in hard water can cause your hair cuticles to stand up, making your hair feel rough and dry.Softened water can help alleviate skin conditions, leaving your skin and hair feeling smooth and soft..

Eliminate Limescale

Limescale is the deposit left behind by hard water, it is made up of calcium and magnesium compounds. It causes scaling of heater elements in kettles, dishwashers and washing machines, as well as scaling in your pipes and boiler. It is likely you can see limescale on your kitchen surfaces, taps and shower. Softened water eliminates limescale, which reduces cleaning time.Your appliances and boiler will work more efficiently and last longer

Our Customers

The water now tastes better...

A good investment for any household. The water now tastes better with tea and coffee flavours greatly enhanced. We use less detergent for clothes washing and less soap, shampoo and shaving cream. More importantly, the water pipes and storage tank will be completely descaled over time. The unit itself, uses no electricity and operates silently. It fits under the kitchen sink without taking up much room. The only item needed are replacement salt blocks which last a few weeks at a time but these are very easy to replace and the benefits gained are worthwhile. I would recommend it and its made in Britain!

British made with a 10 year warranty!

I've had a powered water softener for years, but replaced it when the control unit started leaking. To be honest I now think it wasn't working for some time. Within a week of installing the Minimax, my normally dry, brittle hair is calm and luxurious! The water doesn't 'taste weird' like it used to, and the idea that I do not have to even consider the unit's operation, let alone worry about it, is great. I did look around at other similar models, but I preferred the price of this one, and that its British made with the 10 year warranty. I couldn't see any additional benefit for a couple more £100s for the competitors' models.
