Since I had such hard water levels at home, I realized I needed the best water softener unit. As I did my research, I stumbled upon Kinetico, one of the most popular companies known for their water softener systems. I was glad I did!

Kinetico was founded back in 1970, the company who pioneered the development of water treatment systems. As the years passed and modern technology came to be, they continue to grow and become one of the experts worldwide. In fact, they serve over 100 countries and provide the complete water systems known to produce quality and water for cleaning and drinking. 

Today, they offer three series of water softener systems:

  • Kinetico Signature Series
  • Kinetico Premier Series
  • Kinetico Essential Series

All of these offer the non-electric operation but with different performances suitable from the small to big households. 

With that said, what makes Kinetico and their products different from the likes of Harvey’s or Water2Buy? Are their systems just as good, or will there be any good (or bad) differences to note of?

I did the tests and research myself, so read on! I’ll show you my Kinetico water softener reviews to help you find a suitable system for you.

The Best Kinetico Water Softener Reviews 2019 

Based on my tests and research, these are the three water softeners Kinetico has to offer and my reviews on them:

  1. Kinetico Essential Water Softener

This is the more affordable version from Kinetico, as it comes with only the bare essentials, as its name. But don’t think that it doesn’t come without necessary and well-performing features! It’s a single-tank water softening system, compact enough to fit most plumbing systems

They’re also non-electric, as are all of Kinetico’s series. It even comes with customizable regeneration cycles to suit your needs in terms of how much water you and your household consumes. 

I also appreciate the fact that it deals with all types of hard water without the hassle of complications. If you’re on a budget looking for a compact water softener and can deal with the single tank design, you’ll appreciate this one.

 

  1. Kinetico Premier Compact (2020C) Water Softener

The Kinetico 2020C is one of the most compact water softeners I’ve reviewed, which is also non-electric powered. It is also one of the best-selling units from Kinetico because of its ease of use and the affordable price (around £400 to £500).

Since it doesn’t require any electricity to power it up, it’s easy to install and at a good size to fit in most kitchens, small or big. 

Installation is a breeze since it has a dual-most installation to suit either positioning. As for using and maintaining it, there is no issue since you just need to place salt and let it do its job. You can use either use table or block salt for it. 

If you want both a smaller unit that does the job in small households, I recommend you get this Kinetico unit. 

  1. Kinetico Premier Maxi

The Kinetico Premier Maxi is one of the top-quality water softeners available today, though coming at premium prices. However, you’re assured that it can deal with just about any hard water issue, providing necessary features for your water needs.

It has a dual-tank design to offer all the water you need regardless of the time of day. Furthermore, it is powered without electricity and uses water pressure, which lessens the maintenance and repair needs of it. 

Besides this, you can opt for the XP feature, which offers even more customization settings according to what fits your homes water profile. In addition to this, it has a strong flow rate suitable for larger households. 

So if you have the extra budget and live in a bigger home with a higher demand for water, this one’s for you.

The Kinetico Water Softener Price 

While the Kinetico does have excellent quality and performance, it does come at an expensive cost. 

There are three units to choose from, each having different prices depending on what you get. But expect to pay at least 500 for their basic set, or even over 5,000 for a high-quality unit that comes with all the things you need. This can even go for more if you get units that come with a reverse osmosis system!

You may have noticed that their units don’t come in an exact price range for everyone. That’s because your plumbing will have to go through evaluation from a Kinetico representative. You’ll get the final cost depending on the size of your home, the number of people living inside, and the features you need.

And though costly, you get great services and excellent warranty on top of a quality water softener system to last. If you are on a budget though, I would recommend that you get something cheaper but with similar quality, like the Water2Buy W2B800.

Harvey Water Softener vs Kinetico vs Water2Buy

You’ve probably heard of Harvey’s and Water2Buy, both reputable companies with similar features as Kinetico! However, what makes these three brands different and which one is made best for you? Here are some of their differences:

The Cost 

Yes, water softeners come at different prices to compare. If you’re thinking about the cost, I rank it from cheapest to priciest:

  1. Water2Buy
  2. Harvey’s
  3. Kinetico

The Water2Buy is the most affordable one, coming between £300 to £350. Harvey’s has the middle ground at around £800 to £1,000. Kinetico takes the cake as priciest coming at over £3,000 for the premium unit.

So if you’re on a tight budget, then you’ll want to consider Water2Buy. If you can shell out a bit more for better quality, I also recommend Harvey’s. 

Who is It Best For? 

I believe that the Water2Buy W2B800 and W2B200 are made best for those on a budget and for smaller households. Take note that they have basic features so you do get what you pay for. However, it still has adequate features for families with external drains, not for apartments. 

The Harvey’s Water Softener is made best for bigger families and if you’re still on a budget, though a bit more expensive. Those living in small areas or apartments without external drains will benefit from this, also having less hassle on installation.

The Kinetico offers the non-electric power with all the features required suitable for big households and any tip of home. However, it comes at a more expensive price with similar features as of Harvey’s!

That’s why I highly recommend that you go for something on a budget but still does the job well, like the Water2Buy W2B800 and/or the W2B200. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles, but enough features required for most households. And that’s the only thing I need when it comes to a water softener, as long as it works well for my home and provides the soft water we all need daily. 

Through knowing these main differences, you have more of a basis on what brand you need and the specific systems to invest in. Learn more about the different best water softeners besides these three brands here! 

Wrapping It Up

When you want to ensure that you get the right water softener, you also have to look into the reputable brand. With Kinetico, you get excellent service and high-quality water without the hassle of maintenance. It can compete well against the Harvey and Water2Buy water softener systems well, making it worth the investment. 

Hopefully, my article on the Kinetico Water Softener reviews gave you an idea on what to invest in. So, whether it’s Harvey’s, Water2Buy, or Kinetico, find out the right water softener for you now!

If you have a home with hard water, then it’s crucial to invest in the best water softener. However, that isn’t the only investment you should focus on with softening water. You also need the right water softener salt blocks, tablets, or granular salt to help with the process.

Water softeners require salt for the device to regenerate, ensuring that your water stays soft. And choosing the right one is just as important as selecting the proper water softener!

Why? Because water softener salt doesn’t work equally in all machines and come in a variety of quality based on its price! If you’re not sure what salts to get, read on as I show you the best products reviewed on water softener salts.

 

Best Water Softener Salt Blocks, Tablets and Granular Salt in the UK

Based on my tests and research, these are the five best water softener salt blocks, tablets, and granular salts to try: 

  1. Harvey’s Block Salt

Check Price On Amazon

I really love all of Harvey’s Water Softener systems, which is why I highly commend Harvey’s Block Salt, too! It’s quite affordable and comes in three packs of two blocks each, suitable for most popular water softeners today (not just Harvey’s).

It comes in the perfect size, only as big and heavy as a house brick. Furthermore, it dissolves well and is easy to handle, ensuring better cleaning and maintenance. While a bit pricey, it’s definitely worth the extra pounds for hassle-free use.

 

  1. Hydrosoft Tablets

Check Price On Amazon

The Hydrosoft Tablets are another excellent choice if you’re not a fan of salt blocks. They’re just as smooth hand easy to handle, having the strength and quality build to dissolve in water well. They’re also known as one of the purest water softening salt tablets available today.

While clean and easy to maintain, it comes in a 25-kilogram bag, so it may be difficult to handle during refills. With that said, it’s a small inconvenience considering it offers softer water at lower prices.

 

  1. Kinetico Block Salt

Check Price On Amazon

The Kinetico Block Salt is almost as similar as Harvey’s, coming in three bags of two blocks each. However, it falls a little bit short in terms of quality when comparing it to Harvey’s, though better than other block salts around. I commend it for how smooth it is and the way it dissolves completely into the water, though!

I just wish that they cared a bit more for shipping, as there’s a chance of receiving broken blocks. It’s still usable but can affect the water softener’s performance.

  1. Aquasol Water Softener Tablet Salt 

Check Price On Amazon

While the Aquasol comes at a high price, you get what you pay for and receive only premium quality salts. Plus, it comes in five 25-kilogram bags, so it’s actually quite economical and lessens the hassle of repurchasing when you run out of one bag.

As for its quality, it’s made with pure salt and constructed to small tablets well, dissolving good enough to keep your salt tank clean. You don’t taste any salt in the water and it has a long lifespan before you need to replenish the tank!

 

  1. Water2Buy Crystals Salt for Water Softeners 

Check Price On Amazon

Water2Buy is a bit more expensive than others, but as salt crystals, you can see why. It’s made with the top-quality salt and made into small crystals for even better dissolving.

It works on most water softeners and shows immediate and amazing results, from less limescale, easier cleaning, and NO salty taste when drinking. Furthermore, the salts last for AT LEAST a month before replenishing!

How to Choose the Right Water Softener Salt Blocks, Tablets, and Granular Salt 

Besides these informative reviews, you also have to consider the following tips when getting water softener salt:

  1. Type of Salt 

There are different forms of salt to choose from:

  • Evaporated salt pellets provide the best purity rates and are the most expensive. It makes your salt tank easier to clean and maintain
  • Solar salt pellets are the most common, sold in other pellet or crystal form. It may not be suited for you if you have very high levels of hard water
  • Rock salt resembles small pebbles and is cheaper. However, it doesn’t dissolve well and may be a hassle to maintain 
  • Block salt is only used upon the recommendation of your water softener company, or if you have a water softener that can use block salt
  1. Your Health 

Your health is a crucial factor that plays into your salt choice since our bodies react differently to salt. If you have kidney stones or a kidney condition, it’s best to go for potassium chloride. However, while a healthy nutrient and eco-friendly, take note that potassium chloride lowers blood pressure, too!

  1. The Price 

Just like water softener prices, the cost of salt matters and you get what you pay for! I recommend that you set a reasonable budget that isn’t too cheap that leads to mundane performance. However, you don’t need to overspend and hurt your wallet along the way.

Frequently Asked Questions 

To learn more about water softener salts, these are three frequently asked questions many ask related to it:

  1. What is water softener salt? 

Water softener salt works with water softeners to remove all hard water minerals. This is done as water passes through resin beads, which then removes the hard water minerals.

It’s usually made with sodium chloride, though there’s an uncommon alternative known as potassium chloride.

  1. How can I fill up my water softener tank with salt? 

All you need to do is to find the salt tank and open the lid to check the salt levels. If already half-empty, fill it up until the line, avoid overfilling it. I recommend that you check your salt levels once a month!

  1. Can I use other types of salt outside water softener salt blocks, tablets, or granular salt? 

Some people have wondered f they can use table salt or ice melt salt in their water softeners. 

That is a huge NO. These types of salt have smaller crystals, which result in mushing and less effective in softening your water. Plus, it makes it more hassling to clean your salt tank!

If you’ve decided to use a water softener, then you probably know most of the benefits of doing so already; the real question on your mind is: “how do I choose the right system?”. Today, we will have a look at the best water softener reviews for 2019.

With water in many parts of the UK defined as ‘hard’ or ‘very hard’, because of its high calcium carbonate component, and with much of it coming from springs in limestone and chalk aquifers, you are not alone in searching for a solution. The lime-scale associated with hard water (Calcium and Magnesium build-up) can damage appliances and affect clothing, and also collects in pipes and damages domestic water systems, reducing the efficiency of heaters and boilers. A water-softening solution that is connected to the plumbing system and which covers the whole home is, therefore, a ‘no-brainer’ for many people

What is more difficult is the choice of unit. The high volume of solutions on the market means it can be confusing for homeowners to select the right one for their needs. This is further complicated by different types of water softener units available on the market, each with its own set of specific pros and cons.

Best Water Softener Reviews UK – Updated List for 2019

Here we break down what your choices are when it comes to water softener reviews. The following list contains the best water softeners in UK for all kinds of needs and budget:

1. The Water2Buy W2B200 Water Softener

Editor Summary: The W2B200 water softener from Water2Buy is our top recommendation since it’s effective and budget-friendly at the same time.

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

Water2Buy is an Irish-based manufacturer that has made a name for providing lower cost, high technology equipment across the UK and Europe.
It prides itself not only in the quality of its softeners, but in providing manuals that simplify system installation, with easy-to-follow diagrams as well as YouTube videos, and in providing good after-sales support and service.

Appearance

This is a white and blue plastic-encased unit. At 44cm deep x 23cm wide x 64cm high, and weighing 18kg, it will fit under the kitchen sink. It is very compact and delivers performance above what you’d expect for a unit of this size

Installation, operation, and maintenance

The Water2Buy W2B200 is compatible with most UK heating systems and should be installed on cold water supply, near a power source and drains for the waste and overflow. You can install it without a plumber if you have a little DIY knowledge, connection hoses, and a waste and overflow kit.

It is a salt-based, electric system. Regeneration of its resin is meter-controlled and takes around 30 minutes. This is generally considered the most efficient way of providing 24-hour water softening because it is based on the actual amount of water throughput, rather than on arbitrary, time-based system, where water usage may vary.

It can use all types of softener salt for regeneration – block, tablet, or crystal – with easy access provided by its wide, removable lid. Because it uses salt only while cleaning, rather than daily, some customers remark that it uses less salt than other units they have used: generally around 25Kg of salt every 2 months.

Value for money

It is extremely effective at removing lime-scale and is a reliable and robust product according to the reviews. At its price-point around £300, it represents great value for money and frequently comes in as the overall Number 1 water softener on Amazon: it combines economy, efficiency, and a compact build.

Ideal for:

This particular model is recommended for:

  • Up to 4 people living in a house or apartment
  • A water hardness range up to 400 PPM
  • Households with a water usage up to 1250 litres per day

 

Warranty

These units have a 30-day money-back guarantee and the equipment is covered up to 7 years under warranty.

Other Points For Buyers to Note
  • It has a built-in mixer valve to allow you to adjust water hardness
  • Users have commented on the quietness of the system as it runs and cleans
  • You can set the machine to clean while you sleep
  • Some packages come with a free by-pass valve (worth £50), so look out for this as part of the offer
  • Other more powerful options are available in this series: these can soften water for larger households up to 10 people, with up to triple the water throughput and higher calcium/magnesium concentrations. Of course, they also come at a slightly higher price, but still represent great value
  • TA timer-based model is also available in this series

Check Current Price On Amazon

2. Harvey’s Crown Water Softener

Editor Summary: Best Water Softener if you have a high budget. It’s a non-electric block salt water softening system. So, it’s the most effective one in our list.

Harvey's Crown

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

Harvey’s softeners are supplied by Fountain Softeners: a well-established name in the industry, based in West Sussex, in England. It has been making water softeners for 50 years and has built a reputation for high quality softeners and accessories, as well as other kitchen equipment like taps and water filters.

The company prides itself in custom-made designs, free delivery in mainland UK, with free service monitoring and service back-up from their own team of engineers.

Appearance

Harvey’s Crown Softener is an all-white plastic unit that is 46cm deep x 21cm wide x 49cm high. Weighing in at 20kg, it is a very compact unit that will comfortably fit under most kitchen sinks – yet it has great capacity.

Installation, operation, and maintenance

The unit is a non-electric twin tank model that uses block salt to soften household water.

Like the Water2Buy model described above, its regeneration cycle is based upon actual water consumption rather than a timer, increasing efficiency and reducing the amount of salt required.

Its twin tank design enables it to supply soft water while it is regenerating – a big improvement on older systems out there. It can be set to regenerate at any time of the day or night, which means you have softened water available 24/7 and are not suddenly going to run out if you have guests.

Unlike the Water2Buy model described above, it runs entirely on water pressure, so requires no electricity supply. This reduces running costs and simplifies installation.

This unit has been designed with the UK market in mind and is supplied with a selection of 15mm or 22mm fitting kits, a water hardness tester kit, and starter pack of block salt. With a little DIY know-how, you can install it yourself. It will adapt to the pipework in your property, as the internal unit can be turned so that the inlet/outlet port can be on either side of the unit.

Value for money

While it comes in at a significantly higher price point than the Water2Buy model, it is a high-end system in terms of performance. It is one of the most technically-advanced units on the market for UK households. Because it requires no electricity (which reduces running costs), and it includes a 5-year on-site labor warranty, the higher price point can be justified.

Ideal for:

This particular model is recommended for:

  • Medium-sized families – up to 6 people or more
  • Those who want a technically-advanced water softening system, with low running costs
  • Households where water usage fluctuates considerably through the day

 

Warranty

Fountain Softeners provides a 5-year part and 5-year labor (on-site) guarantee that provides extra peace of mind for homeowners, should there be any faults or maintenance required.

Other Points For Buyers to Note
  • Users comment on how well this unit works with any type of plumbing system
  • It will comfortably cope with six or more people in the property
  • Make sure you order the correct installation kit

3. Water2Buy W2B800 Water Softener

Editor Summary: This is the best water softener if seven to ten people live at home. It can provide a LOT of water without worrying about the capacity or pressure.

Water2Buy W2B800 Water Softener

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

As mentioned before, Water2Buy is an extremely popular company known across the UK and Europe. They’re best known for their variety of water softeners available to date!

Appearance

It has an all-gray body with a green top cover. Not exactly the sleekest, but a basic and simple design that looks fine. Plus, it has a slim structure to fit most tight areas at home, with its dimensions being 22.5cm x 50cm x 1,100cm.

Installation, operation, and maintenance

The unit was easy to install, I had no problem with assembly. It only took a few hours by myself, though people who do not know with water softeners may require a professional or some help.

Its operation is amazing, as it operates without any noise. It’s not just noiseless, but also intuitive and would delay any cleaning until early morning to lessen disturbance.

It’s also hassle-free to maintain, only requiring salt replacement about once a month. It removes limescale extremely well and you won’t have much of a problem with hard water anymore.

Value for money

Considering that you’re getting a Water2Buy Water Softener with everything required for a big group of people, you get what you pay for. Its price ranges between £515 to £550, a reasonable price for an effective and automatic system. It even comes with a 7-year warranty and free returns!

Ideal for:

This particular model is recommended for:

  • Up to ten people in a home
  • Those who have water hardness of up to 420 PPM
  • Households that require up to 3,680 litres of water a da

 

Warranty

What’s great is that the Water2Buy W2B800comes with fee returns AND a 7-year warranty.

Other Points For Buyers to Note

  • It’s an intuitive system that cleans itself early morning to minimize disturbance
  • The water softener won’t affect your usual water pressure
  • They have excellent customer service that answers your queries within a day
  • The instruction manual can be quite confusing from the photos, but can still be installed yourself

4. TwinTec S3 Block Salt Based Water Softener

Editor Summary:

This is the latest generation water softener from TwinTec, made for all kinds of plumbing systems in Britain and all types of families. It’s known for its unique design and excellent performance to give off an uninterrupted supply of water all day long.

TwinTec-S3

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

TwinTec is a reputable company who has been in business for almost 40 years, starting as a small family business. They now have 25 dealerships around the UK, known for their services and excellent products, including the S3.

Appearance

What’s great about the S3 is that it comes with a host of excellent features and a good appearance that would fit most homes. It can fit under kitchen sinks easily because it’s only 49cm high, 20.50cm wide, and 46cm in depth.

Installation, operation, and maintenance

Installation is a breeze, though a bit heavier. I recommend that you have help upon assembly to carry the bigger items. However, you can do it without professional help within the day, or have TwinTec’s service do it for you.

I appreciate the twin-cylinder design, which ensures that you have soft water regardless of when and how much you need it!

You won’t have trouble in maintenance, as it uses less salt and it would last longer. Plus, it’s easy to replace and clean out the salt block compartment.

Value for money

I believe that the TwinTec Water Softeners ARE worth it! You get your value for money and get water on-demand without much of the maintenance needs. While a bit more expensive, you would save more in terms of time and money used on maintenance, since it uses minimal salt.

Ideal for:

I believe that the TwinTec S3 is best suited for:

  • Those who have limited space and need something to fit in small areas
  • Those who need a constant supply of water without the need for electricity
  • Something easy to maintain and will last for long

Warranty

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any information regarding the warranty for TwinTec products.

Other Points For Buyers to Note

  • The water softening system is NOT widely available around websites like Amazon, you’ll need to find it in the actual TwinTec dealership or secondhand versions on eBay
  • They aren’t available in the USA either, only around the UK
  • It supplies water without the need for electricity so there aren’t concerns during power outages
  • The S3 is a bit heavier than other water softening systems, so it’ll be difficult moving around
  • Despite its heaviness, it’s easy to load salt in

5. Water2Buy W2B500 Water Softener

Editor Summary:

I believe that the Water2Buy W2B500 Water Softener for smaller groups of up to seven people. If your aim is easy installment and quiet operation from a reputable company, you’ll like this water softener system.

Water2Buy W2B500

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

Water2Buy is truly one of the most popular systems available to date, offering high-quality water softeners with the best and advanced technology.

Appearance

It has the dimensions of 34cm x 56cm x 66cm, which is compact enough and can fit most kitchen sinks. It may be a bit bulky for some homeowners, but it’s a standard size. Furthermore, it has a light bray body with a  green top, as most of Water2Buy water softener units offer.

Installation, operation, and maintenance

Installation and set up is a breeze, including an instruction manual for the entire process. However, setting up can take a bit longer since it gets confusing with a lot of weird figures on the manual.

I commend it for its operation though, as it doesn’t just soften water quietly, but it can also clean itself at night without making noise or disrupting the softening process.

Because it’s easy to clean, maintenance is just as easy, too. You won’t need to constantly check the unit, only doing so once a month.

Value for money

Overall, I believe that the Water2Buy W2B500 Water Softener gives you value for money. You get more than adequate amounts of water a day without having to waste too much salt for it.

Furthermore, it operates quietly and doesn’t require as much maintenance, saving you time and effort. Coming at a price between £550 to £580 with a warranty, it’s a worthy investment for families.

Ideal for:

After checking out what it has to offer, I feel that the Water2Buy W2B500 Water Softener is best suited for:

  • Small to medium-sized families who need up to 1,400 tiers of water a day
  • Those who don’t want to take too much time in cleaning and maintenance with their system

Warranty

Like all of Water2Buy Water Softeners, it comes with a money-back guarantee and a 7-year warranty to ensure that it lasts for long.

Other Points For Buyers to Note

  • You will need to do manual regeneration for the water softener system
  • Make sure you be wary when pulling the lie off the unit, as it might topple over easily
  • The manual might be a bit difficult to understand during set up, so make sure that you set the hardness settings to about 150 liters a day before using

6. Eddy Water Descaler Electronic Water Softener

Editor Summary: It’s an electronic salt-free water softener system from Eddy. If you don’t want anything to do with salt & maintenance, this is your top choice.


eddy-water-descaler

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer
Eddy Water Descalers is a Surrey-based company set up 15 years ago to create water softening units manufactured in the UK using British design and technology; the company wanted to design a unit that could be used in any size of property – including small commercial properties like hair salons and restaurants.

It prides itself not only on the reliability of its products but also on providing top-notch follow-up service where customers always get to speak to a representative.

Appearance
The Eddy unit is the smallest one you will come across – just 3.5cm deep x 17cm wide x 9cm high. With these dimensions, it’s no surprise that it weighs just 620 grams. It looks vastly different from the other models described because it uses very different technology.

Installation, operation, and maintenance
The Eddy Electronic Water Descaler is a double-power output unit that has been on the market and receiving great reviews, since 2006.

It requires no salt or chemicals, has no regeneration process, and will not flush healthy minerals out of the water. Instead, this unit uses electromagnetism to soften hard water.

Its super high-power twin coils are placed around your incoming water supply pipe to produce a complex electromagnetic wave. The household water responds to this ever-changing magnetic field as it passes through the coils, altering the adhesion properties of the calcium and magnesium. These changes mean that the lime-scale cannot deposit itself in your home’s pipework and appliances.

Because this process does not alter the chemical hardness (TDS) of the water, all the beneficial minerals are retained, but the problem of lime-scale build up is eradicated.

The unit is very easy to install yourself, with no plumber required. It works with both metal and plastic piping and comes with the necessary cables for pipes up to 28mm diameter.


Value for money
The model provides exceptional value for money as it is cheap to purchase, comes with a lifetime guarantee, requires no maintenance, and incurs minimal running costs.

Ideal for:
This particular model is recommended for:

  • Households looking for an economical solution to water hardness
  • Those looking for an eco-friendly solution
  • Households where the water is light to moderately hard

Warranty
Eddy Water Descalers provide a lifetime guarantee against unit failure. It also provides a 12-month money-back guarantee if you are unsatisfied with the performance of the unit in any way.

Other points for buyers to note

  • It has achieved 99% customer satisfaction over 14 years – with only 1% of units returned according to the warranty
  • Customers regularly comment about the low running costs per year (minimal impact on the electricity bill)
  • It may need to be given a period of 2-3 months to really start clearing pipes of lime-scale – give it time to work!
  • In areas where the water is excessively hard, some users have commented that the unit is less effective

7. Eco+ Whole House Water Softener System

Editor Summary: An all-in-one system if you’re looking for both softening and filtration. 99% scale prevention and impressive water filtration technology.

eco-water-filter-man

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer
Water Filter Man is a well-established West Midlands-based company specialising in water filtration systems and water purification.

It is known not only for de-scaling and softening products, but for products that filter and purify water in an environmentally friendly, convenient, and cost-effective way.

Appearance
The Eco+ system is a blue plastic dual-filter unit. It is 21cm deep x 48cm wide x 49cm high, and is very lightweight, at just 10Kg.

Installation, operation, and maintenance
This unit is different in three key respects to those already described.

Firstly, it is salt-free. It requires no blocks, crystals or tablets, and there is no ‘regeneration’ process. Secondly, it not only softens the household water, but purifies it too, using its dual-tank water filtration system. Thirdly, it requires no power supply (unlike the W2B200).

The first filter acts to filter levels of compounds such as chlorine and heavy metals, thereby making the water free of impurities, tastes, and odours. It also has an antibacterial filter media to help inhibit bacterial growth within the filter and to extend its life.

The second filter provides a chemical and salt-free water softener that the manufacturer states is 99.6% effective at de-scaling and preventing future scale build up. A process called Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC) conditions the water, converting the calcium and magnesium into inactive microscopic crystals.

The filters need replacing periodically: every year (or 200,000 litres usage) is recommended for the first filter and every three years (or 750,000 litres usage) for the scale prevention cartridge.

Installation is generally by a plumber. It can be wall-mounted and should be connected in-line with the cold mains water pipe. It is supplied with ¾-inch BSP threaded fittings for installation.


Value for money
The model provides great value for money as it does two jobs at once and generates minimal running costs for the homeowner. It’s the best choice if you are looking to purchase a combo of whole house water filtration system and an efficient water softener.

Ideal for:
This particular model is recommended for:

  • Small families up to 3 or 4 people
  • Those looking for water purification as well as softening
  • Households keen to keep running costs down
  • Those who want a an eco-friendly solution

Warranty
Water Filter Man provides a 3-year guarantee on system parts and fixings. This excludes the filter cartridge, which should be replaced as required.

Other Points For Buyers to Note

  • If you want a water softener without the extra filter, the same company manufactures a smaller, softening-only unit at a lower price, using the same softening technology.
  • Users comment that a high flow rate is maintained and that the system has minimal impact on water pressure
  • It works in homes with appliances sensitive to pressure including cold feed electric showers and Combi boilers

8. Tapworks AD11 Water Softener

Editor Summary: The Tapworks AD11 Water Softener might not look aesthetically appealing, but it does a job well done in providing soft water and a good price. It adapts to your needs and offers smart technology to make operation much hassle-free.


Tapworks AD11

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

Tapworks is one of the largest manufacturers of water softeners worldwide! They use Smart technology to ensure that they produce some of the best water softening systems suitable for most homes.

Appearance

I’m going, to be honest: This is not an attractive looking water softener unit, with a body made of plain plastic. However, you’re focusing more of its components, which are strong and made of quality material. As for its dimensions, it is 49.6 x 29.6 x 64.8 cm, good enough to fit most kitchen sinks provided you allocate enough space (it isn’t as compact than others).

Installation, operation, and maintenance

I highly recommend the unit for beginners who have little to no prior knowledge on water softeners. It comes with the understandable manual so you can easily assemble and set it up yourself!

It also operates well, providing up to 2,266 litres at a water capacity of 300 PPM. I also appreciate its power, though requiring electricity, it has a 48-hour backup in case of power loss!

It’s not the easiest to maintain, but it isn’t difficult to do so as well, requiring monthly checks and a bit of cleaning every few weeks.


Value for money

The Tapworks AD11 comes at a slightly more affordable price compared to other water softeners. At a price between £410 to £450, you do get your money’s worth with smart technology (despite the clunky appearance).

Ideal for:

The Tapworks AD11 Water Softener is best suitable for the following:

  • Those on a slightly lower budget but want something with useful features and performance
  • If you’re living in a permanent home and need soft water for years
  • Something easy to install and program if you’re not familiar with water softening at all

Warranty
Usually, all of Tapworks Water Softener has one-year parts and labor warranty. You will need to register for the warranty for it to work

Other Points For Buyers to Note

  • Any tablet or pellet salt will work well with the water softener
  • You won’t need a bypass valve if you already had a water softener before
  • I’m not a huge fan of the appearance, which is why you should allocate adequate space for it under the sink or in hidden areas

9. BWT WS455 Hi-Flow Electronic Demand Water Softener

Editor Summary: If you’re looking for something that offers soft water on-demand and regardless of how much you need, you’ll like the BWT WS455. It offers everything beginners need for a family-sized household.


BWT WS455

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

BWT stands for Best Water Technology, another large company with thousands of partners worldwide. They focus on creating the best water treatment systems using the latest technology, all the while without abusing the planet’s resources.

Appearance

The BWT WS455 is simply designed with functionality for all homes in mind. It’s compatible with most UK plumbing systems and comes at a compact size, fitting most cupboards. Furthermore, it has a strong plastic body that measures 48 x 27 x 53.2 cm. While a bit on the heavier side at 22.5 kg, it’s sturdy and can hold up to 10 liters of salt.

Installation, operation, and maintenance

Installation is a breeze since it comes with an easy-to-understand instruction manual. It only takes half a day or less to set up and program, using it after breaking it in for a day.

Operation is just as satisfactory as well, performing as advertised and using smart technology to provide water for families of up to four people without a struggle. It even uses salt more efficiently!

There are no problems with maintenance here, as all you need to do is to check it for salt replacement monthly.


Value for money

The BWT WS455 Water Softener comes at a moderate price, slightly more expensive than the likes of Water2Buy or Harvey’s. With that said, it still offers the amazing features families require. Not only is it small enough to fit in kitchen cupboards, but easy to set up and program for hassle-free maintenance in the long run.

Ideal for:

The Tapworks AD11 Water Softener is best suitable for the following:

  • Those who have family-sized households
  • Families who have tight spaces and need a compact unit
  • Something easy to install without advanced knowledge of water softeners

Warranty

The unit comes with a five-year warranty on parts and a two-year warranty on labor at home.

Other Points For Buyers to Note

  • For those with flow rates under 10 liters a minute, hardness may not be completely removed
  • With that said above, people still have softer water compared to other older water softeners
  • The fittings of the water softener could be better, but sell fits well in plumbing systems

10. iSpring RCC7AK Water Filtration System

Editor Summary: The iSpring RCC7AM isn’t a complete water softener, but a filtration system for cleaner water. It helps improve the water quality at the cheapest price, though not recommended for those with extremely hard water.

iSpring RCC7

Check Current Price On Amazon

Manufacturer

iSpring Water Systems is a family-owned company that focuses on manufacturing high-quality water filtration systems. Their goal is to offer quality drinking water accessible for all households thanks to their premium products at affordable prices.

Appearance

I have no issues with what this water softener looks like. It looks classy and has three slim tanks to fit well under the sink. The main system body only measures 18 x 124.5 x 5.25 inches, with the holding tank measuring 16 x 11 inches for ease of installation.

Installation, operation, and maintenance

You can install the unit yourself, taking only less than a day before you can begin using it. It fits most kitchen sinks with all parts included, as well as an understandable manual.

As for its operation, don’t expect it to remove hard water. This system focuses more on filtering out water to remove it of any contaminants more so than actually softening it. However, I do notice cleaner water which has improved both washing and drinking.

There aren’t any issues in terms of maintenance, lasting for years of daily usage as long as you inspect the filter now and then.

Value for money

At a price between £200 to £220, it’s one of the most affordable water treatment systems to invest in today. Even at such an affordable price, it doesn’t scrimp on quality and you’re assured cleaner and safer water to use and consume for years to come. However, it doesn’t completely remove hardness in water, so you have to be wary if you have higher hard water levels.

Ideal for:

This particular water softener is ideal for:

  • Those on an extreme budget and focus more on water filtration
  • A household without high levels of hard water
  • Those who are familiar with their plumbing systems for easy installment

Warranty

The water softener comes with a 1-year limited warranty, as well as lifetime technical support.

Other Points For Buyers to Note

  • This isn’t a water softener for very hard water levels
  • You may need a booster pump if you have water pressure under 45 PSI
  • Push the tubing into the quick-fitting lock and connectors to ensure a leak-free setup

Water Softener Buying Guide

Now that you’re familiar with the best water softeners, how can you choose the right one made for you? There are more factors to consider beyond getting the most popular or priciest! With that said, look into these factors before making your final investment:

System Size and Weight

One of the crucial factors to consider is the type of water softener you need, which I’ll get into the next section. That factor depends on how hard your water is.

The next thing to consider is its size, which depends on your household and area you allocated for it. Some households may need a huge system, while others can make do with something smaller. And take note, the bigger DOESN’T mean the better for some households, which is why you need to know how to calculate the ideal water softener size for you!

This is because it should be large enough so it can adapt to your household’s needs. But it should still come at a physical size good enough to fit your home.

With that said, water softeners have a different size standard, rated by its number of hardness grains that it can remove between regenerating. These rates are measured in GPG, or grains per gallon of water. How can you calculate the correct water size for your home?

Experts calculate the GPG required in a water softener system based on how many people use water daily. To calculate this simply, just multiply how many you are in the family by 75 (the typical number of gallons one person uses daily). Afterward, multiply the answer by how many GPG of hard minerals exists in your water.

The final answer is the MINIMUM GPG required to get a good amount of water for ALL family members in the household. To give you an idea of how much you need, the average family requires at least 33,000 GPG in a water softener.

Controls and Features

You also have to look into the water softener’s controls and features. Not only should it be easy to adjust its controls, but also with the necessary features your family specifically needs. Many softeners now have automatic functions to control the basic features of a water softener, like the amount of water and regeneration cycles daily.

BUT, some softeners have adjustable controls, which you may prefer. These are the two most common ways to control a water softener:

Water Softener Timer Control

An electronic timer is automatic and would regulate regeneration cycles based on your typical usage daily. I like this type of control because it’s very useful and lessens the need to manually adjust it myself.

However, some people may not like it because it would regenerate without needing to, which wastes water and sodium. Furthermore, automatic controls might not detect intense usage, which causes a water shortage that day.

Softener DIR Control

DIR stands for demand-initiated regeneration, which is a sophisticated control that determines when you have to recharge your resin. It does this either through electronic sensors or mechanical meters, which would measure and calculate your water usage. Meaning, the system only regenerates water when necessary, saving up on salt and water.

I would only recommend this system if you use a LOT of water, or when over eight people are living in one home.

Ease of Installation and Maintenance

Water softener systems seem so intimidating at first, but you’ll be surprised as to how easy it is to install. However, assembly is easy when choosing the RIGHT and simple water softener system.

Fortunately, most water softener systems are pretty easy to assemble and setup. You don’t even need a professional plumber, especially if you have prior knowledge to systems like this. Usually, assembly and the installment shouldn’t take up to one day.

As for maintenance, I highly recommend that the water softener system you choose has a reputation for being easy to maintain. I like systems which have transparent salt storages or with an LCD screen to indicate how the system’s holding up and amount of salt left. This makes it easier for you to know whether it needs cleaning or salt replacement every month.

Furthermore, invest in a water softener system that’s built with durability in mind. They’re meant to last for years, which is why I recommend you get new systems fro reputable companies (which I mentioned in my reviews).

The Right Company and Certification

There are so many companies competing against one another to the point it gets confusing. They all act and look the same, which one should you get?

It’s best to look for various companies and shop around, getting different quotes based on the same factors you need. Work with established companies with a warranty to ensure that it’s backed up by a company that stays in business.

Look for certifications as well, ensuring that the NSF International and Water Quality Association certifies it as a quality system. There should be a WQA Gold Seal to ensure that it passes industry standards and the manufacturer’s claims.

What’s Your Budget?

And of course, how much are you able to afford a quality water softener? While you don’t need to overspend, do NOT scrimp on one either! Depending on the company and features the water softener offers, it can range between $400 to over $2,500 for a system.

Also, consider the materials needed (for salt replacement and maintenance tools). This can cost about $150 a year, suitable enough considering the performance it offers.

You can also choose to lease water softeners, though this is only recommended if you’re living in a home temporarily. If it’s for a permanent home to last for years, then you’ll save more buying an entire softening system.

What are the different types of water softener systems available in the UK?

There are essentially three different categories of whole-house water softener solutions. This excludes filter systems, which often use reverse osmosis, as these are generally designed to purify water, rather than just soften it.
Each type of solution softens hard water in a slightly different way, as explained briefly below:

  • 1. Salt-based systems

Water2Buy W2B200 is the best salt best water softener in the UK.

With salt-based systems, sodium ions replace hard water (calcium and magnesium) ions to soften the water.

As well as a tank for resin beads, they require a salt chamber or ‘brine tank’ that needs to be topped up to maintain the effectiveness of the system. A system ‘regeneration’ process refreshes the resin beads that soften the water. Nowadays these are usually timer-based (every 1 or 2 days for instance) or meter-based (depending on your water usage), meaning that they are low-maintenance.

While some homeowners avoid drinking this water because of the additional salt content, it is very effective in softening the water and is often used for very hard water; the resulting water is perfectly safe to drink, but homeowners may reserve the cold tap as a drinking water tap.

Note that these systems are often quite bulky and are required to be installed near a drain, for discharge of the salt tank. Tablet/granular salt or block salt may be used, depending on system design.

 

  • 2. Salt-free systems

Eddy Electronic Water Descaler is the best salt-free water softening system in the UK.

Salt-free systems use nano-technology to alter the atomic structure of the water and soften it. They are generally used for water that is moderately hard.

They are effective when lime-scale has built up in the existing plumbing system, helping to remove this from the pipes and ensuring that it no longer contributes to the hardness of the water and worsens the situation.

Because no salt additives are required, running costs are generally lower, maintenance easier, and no nearby drain is required for installation. These are considered more environmentally-friendly than salt-based solution, but are not always quite so effective in removing hardness.

 

  • 3. Electromagnetic systems

Electromagnetic systems are the smallest, most compact solutions available, and work using magnetic wires that are placed around the water piping system to alter the structure of the water molecules, softening the water.

They are often used for water with a low to medium hardness. Again, with no additives, this type of solution is considered low maintenance, cheap to run, and environmentally friendly, with no water run-off. They are also relatively easy to install.

 

Choosing the best Water Softener that’s suitable for your home:

The solution that’s right for you will depend on factors such as:

  • The hardness of your home’s water
  • Your budget
  • Space considerations
  • Your maintenance preferences
  • Environmental considerations
  • The importance of running costs

So we have chosen what we consider to be the best Water Softener Systems one in each of the main four categories. These are summarised in the following table and you will find a more comprehensive Water Softener Reviews of each model below it.

Summary

The four units outlined above should cover most of the options for any UK homeowner looking for an effective water softening unit.
While personal preferences will be different, and none of the units is 100 percent perfect, each has received excellent feedback and reviews from users. The manufacturers are all well-established and provide good (in some cases, excellent) warranties and service to back up their products.
The stand-out solution that has consistently received the best Amazon reviews is the Water2Buy model, which combines very efficient performance with an attractive price-point, manageable running costs, and a 7-year warranty. When you add its easy installation process and compatibility with UK heating and plumbing systems, it leads the pack.

If you are looking for a similarly-priced solution that filters and purifies the water, as well as softening it, consider the Eco+ Whole House Water Filter System & Softener.

For those who want to spend a little less, or would prefer a salt-free softener, then the Eddy Electronic Water Descaler is a good choice in areas where the water is not excessively hard.

Also, if you a resident of the US, we recommend you to check these reviews instead because this article is more centered towards you UK folks and we’ve only included products that are available in UK online stores.

Pumped Electric ShowerWhen I was looking for the best pumped electric shower this 2019, I was stumped. There were so many to choose from, I had such a difficult time discovering which one was made for me! I know some of you also feel the same way as you go shower shopping, which is why I made this guide to help you out.

I did all the research and tested showers out myself to give a detailed insight into the whole topic of pumped electric showers. From learning about pumped electric showers to my top five reviews, all is included in this article! This is the ultimate purchasing guide to the best pumped electric shower this 2019.

What Are Pumped Electric Showers?

Before anything else, what is a pumped electric shower and how does it differ from other kinds of showers? These are not to be confused with power or electric showers!

These types of showers are different because they are gravity fed from your cold water storage tank in the attic or loft of your house. The pump will enable the shows to generate enough water pressure, providing a better shower experience. It allows better pressure and water flow, which is great for those who have low water pressure in the area.

Not only does a pumped electric shower provide excellent pressure, but it also has some features of other kinds of showers. So, expect constant pressure and water flow, along with your desired temperature without having to wait or heat water yourself. However, they can be quite pricier compared to electric or power showers because of their extra pressure features.

The Five Best Pumped Electric Showers

Based on my tests, research, and overall customer reviews, these are the five best pumped electric showers to get:

1. The Simple and Efficient: Triton T80si Pumped Electric Shower

The Benefits of Pumped Electric Showers

When I was looking into getting my own pumped electric shower, I was a bit hesitant. After all, what made this type of shower so beneficial anyway? Once I began using it, I was amazed because it was made for my bathroom and has offered the amazing experience for my entire family!

Here are just some of the benefits pumped electric showers have to offer:

  • Best For Low-Pressure Areas

Pumped electric showers provide extra pressure, which is best for areas that are unable to provide the minimum pressure for showers. So if water flow and pressure isn’t the best or as recommended by your area’s standards, then pumped showers will prevent that from happening. However, this is different from the purpose of a water softener, which converts your area’s hard water and doesn’t change the pressure!

  • Offers Optimum Temperature

Pumped electric showers usually only provide the extra pressure, though you can select one with temperature controls. This provides the desired heat your body needs to wake up and stay comfortable, especially during cold mornings. No more having to deal with the usual freezing showers anymore!

  • Constant Water Flow and Temperature For Years

A quality pumped electric shower is made of excellent materials, which not only look great but are long-lasting. You get to have the desired temperature and water pressure in the shower, AND you can reap these benefits for years!

How to Choose the Best Pumped Electric Shower 2019

There are so many amazing benefits a pumped electric shower can offer, but only if you have the one suitable for you! With that being said, what should you consider and how will you know which is best? Here are the helpful tips and factors to consider:

  • Do You Need a Heater?

Like mentioned, pumped electric showers don’t usually come with a heater. That’s why you should consider getting a shower that has the temperature controls and includes a heater if required. Take note that some pumped electric showers don’t have the suitable systems for heated water, so find ones that do!

  • How Much Pressure Does It Give?

The main point of getting a pumped electric shower is for the extra pressure your household needs! Depending on how much power required, the optimum amount is between 9.5 to 10.8 kW, offering enough pressure. It should also offer strong and consistent flow all throughout your showers!

  • Design and Installation

Another thing I look into is its aesthetic and design, as I love something with the modern vibe. This all depends on your overall bathroom design, so choose wisely and make sure that it’s also easy to install. The pumped electric shower should be compatible with your shower and plumbing, too!

  • Safety and Ease of Control

The pumped electric shower needs to be safe for children and the elderly to use. With that being said, it should have the slip-resistant controls, as well as technologies that prevent scalding and switch your shower off when not in use. Through this, you save energy and water, as well as have safe showers.

  • Brand and Your Budget

I highly recommend that you invest in brands like Mira and Triton, which are leading companies in shower products. Just make sure that the shower you get fits your budget, though avoid scrimping and getting the cheapest one! A budget between £200 to £300 is enough for a quality pumped electric shower.

How to Care and Clean For Pumped Electric Showers
Now that you’re familiar with what the pumped electric shower is and what it has to offer, how can you care for it properly? Here are some helpful tips on care and maintenance for your pumped electric shower:

  • Make sure you read the instruction manual on how to install properly and safely. If you’re not confident on setup, then you are able to contact customer service or hire your local plumber to do it for you.
  • Avoid putting the shower at maximum pressure or temperature option, which can wear out the shower and cause burns or other related injuries.
  • You shouldn’t only clean your pumped electric shower’s filters and controls, but the shower head as well! It’s best to clean it weekly or twice a month.

Wrapping It Up

I’m not a huge fan of the color white, but this shower design does make this simple color look fancy. It’s made of the strong chrome material, which makes it strong and durable to last. The body itself has the minimalist design that’s quick to understand and use upon installation. Someone who’s trying to brighten up the shower or go for something more minimalist without the traces of silver hues will appreciate this design. It’s made of the strong and durable materials and parts to last for a long time.

The Aqualisa shower is a bit tricky to use at first, though once you get used to how the dials work, you’ll be able to enjoy the excellent water flow and responsive settings, which is what makes it worth the price. The temperature adjusts quickly without causing discomfort, and everything works without fail for years to come.

  • Look and Design

If the design is your main focus, then the glossy and modern design the iBathUK offers will impress. I’m in love with its minimalistic design which looks simple yet attractive in any bathroom. Plus, the entire body and shower head is made of the strong materials built to withstand use and time. I’m in love with how this would match the modernist’s style in the house, with a stylish and simple design that adds the luxurious touch.

  • Performance and Efficiency

What I appreciate most about it isn’t just the heating efficiency, but the shower heat! It has five different functions and large coverage for anyone to enjoy. Plus, the thermostatic control dial responds quickly, transitioning to your desired temperature within seconds. It even comes with an indicator light in case it doesn’t have enough water pressure.

Compared to the last electric shower I tested, I can feel that this model offers the hotter temperature, providing it a few seconds faster than others. While this is a good thing, you have to be wary about leaving it on after usage, unless you want to burn the next person using it!

  • Installation and Use

The instructions were clear and easy to understand, though there are still some points that require more work and effort when installing. If you’re not familiar with installing an electric shower or with plumbing, then I recommend that you have a professional install it for you.

As for the user-friendliness, it’s straightforward and you won’t have any trouble understanding how it works, with the dial and nozzle to set your temperature and shower setting. My older children and senior parents have used it with ease, thanks to its safety features and understandable dials.

When you want something classic and sleek, then you’re really going to find this shower worth the investment. You can see from its sleek style alone that it surpasses expectations and is only made of the quality materials that make it comfortable to use. I appreciate its safety features such as the power button and light indicators. Besides this, the shower head and hose are also pleasing and convenient for a lot of comfy showers. While some of the installation steps take a bit more effort and the dials feel a bit slippery when wet, these are just very minor adjustments that don’t affect the overall quality. Overall, worth the price!

Check Price On Amazon

 

5. The Affordable and Easy Clean: Triton Seville Electric Shower

Check Current Price On Amazon

For those who are on a budget, it’s still possible to find affordable options for electric showers. One of the best ones without the expensive price goes to the Triton Seville Electric Shower. It’s simple yet heats well, which is what makes it a great buy.

  • Look and Design

In all honesty, the shower isn’t the most attractive looking, though still something that looks simple and minimalistic for its price range. With that being said, it’s not the best recommended for those who look for both looks and functionality in their electric shower.

With that being said, I still appreciate the easy-to-read and understand dials. Besides that, I like the shower head, which has a handle that offers a strong grip despite using it with wet hands.

  • Performance and Efficiency

Performance-wise, you get what you paid for and more. You’ll be surprised that for its price, it still offers an efficient response when changing the temperature and lasts for a long time! The water flow is adequate and I’m able to shower comfortably with it, having no trouble at all.

Of course, expect that for an affordable shower, it doesn’t provide the most powerful water flow and pressure. But one thing I commend it for is its heating. If you’re just after a hot shower, then this brand will suffice. Just make sure that if someone will use the shower after you, run the heater on cold for a while before you switch it off. This prevents the thermal switch from tripping, which takes longer to reset.

  • Installation and Use

I think what’s great about having a simple design is that it makes the shower even easier to install and use. It only takes less than half a day to set everything up and once you begin using it, you can enjoy adequately hot water for a long time. With that being said, I can honestly say that if you’re one who wants more than just a shower that heats, this isn’t for you. You’ll need to shell out a bit more for more control, from the shower spray setting down to extra safety features.

As for using, it’s extremely easy, anyone can understand it. There are only two dials which set the temperature and the shower head which only has one spray pattern. Again, it doesn’t give the most options, but good enough for those focusing more on the hot water for their showers. Furthermore, I like that the adjustable shower head it comes with can come apart for cleaning.

Worth the Price?

You definitely get what you pay for with this electric shower. It’s an average and simple one but does the job in heating your water just right. It isn’t the most luxurious with fast flow, and it requires more care. But if you want something very affordable and longer lasting than other cheap brands, this is it. I highly recommend it if you’re on a budget and simply want the freedom to control your shower water temperature.

thumbs-up-icon

Pros

  • It’s very simple and can easily be installed and used by anyone
  • The shower comes at a cheap and affordable price
  • Long-lasting as long as its well taken cared for
  • Has the excellent customer service who can help on-demand
  • Offers the necessary heating excellently without it being scalding hot
  • The shower is quiet and with the smooth operation for a comfortable time
thumbs-down-icon

Cons

  • The shower hose requires replacement after a short time
  • Not as much power and water flow compared to other brands
  • Upon arrival of the package, you can see that the shower isn’t well-packed

Check Price On Amazon

 

6. The No-Hassle Installation: Triton T80gsi Electric Shower

Check Current Price On Amazon

What I love about the Triton 180gsi Electric Shower is how amazing it performs. But that’s not the best thing about it, it’s actually how easy it is to install! Even I had no trouble installing and setting it up myself.

  • Look and Design

The Triton Electric Shower doesn’t look cheap, though it comes at a moderate (yet still affordable) price range. I think this is what makes it a great purchase because it has the off-white design with the slip-resistant, strong grip. I also like the fact it comes with the soap dish, making it convenient to use.

It’s compatible and looks great in most bathrooms, which is another huge plus. I can also see that all its parts and components are made of both durable and quality materials, as even after using it daily and heavily, it still works well.

  • Performance and Efficiency

The Triton Electric Shower comes with various advanced features without the hefty price tag. It has the three power controls, either cold, eco, and high. I prefer using the eco option, which always saves up on both water and energy in the long run.

Furthermore, it also has strong water flow and pressure, which can be adjusted with the shower head’s spray pattern and the shower control’s power. The heating and temperature changes quickly respond within seconds and there are no problems with the way it works. As long as it’s well taken cared for, I can see it lasting for years without any flaws.

  • Installation and Use

The installation process of the Triton Electric Shower is what I love about it the most! It’s hassle-free to install and comes with everything you need, from the understandable manual to the necessary parts. However, it’s easier when installing it as a new shower compared to replacement or upgrading.

As for its usage, it’s straight to the point and everything works well, from the two temperature dials and power button, down to the shower head’s excellent water flow. Like most showers, the box has two dials and the power button for better safety. Plus, the shower head comes with various spraying patterns which are easy to adjust with a simple twist.

Worth the Price?

After testing out everything, I believe that this Triton Electric Shower is definitely worth the price. It stays in the middle range but you get more than what you pay for with its excellent features that work with ease. It has a cool and no-frills design with the eco-friendly and safety features that the entire household will appreciate. And because it saves a lot of energy and water in the long run, you can get your money back from what you save while still getting the adequate shower experience. Overall, a great purchase and would recommend to anyone who wants something easy to install and maintain.

thumbs-up-icon

  • Provides the hot shower and quick response to temperature changes
  • Has a cool and strong design built to last for years
  • Compatible and easy to fit in any bathroom

How Do Electric Showers Work?

Before we get into the technical details about electric showers and how to use them, how do they work?

Electrical showers are one of the most popular types of showers, known for how it heats water quickly and ease of installation. It’s not the traditional water heater where it needs external supplies of hot water. Instead, electric showers heat cold water on demand with the use of electricity.

People might think electricity mixed with water is dangerous, and it is! However, electric showers are safe to use when installing properly. The heating elements powered by electricity are enclosed in sealed units, so water would never come in contact with the electricity used.

Electric showers work by sending electric currents to heating elements. Cold water would pass through this element and pick up the heat, which is what produces the hot water you use. You’ll be able to adjust the intensity of the heat with the thermostat, adjusting the flow of how much water passes through the heating element. Electric showers that are more advanced offer more features to make the heat and adjustments more efficient, offering pressure-balancing valves, a water mixing tank, or flow sensors and thermostats for safe and steady water pressure.

The Benefits of Using Electric Showers

There are different types of showers and water heaters to choose from, may it be mixed or power showers. With that being said, what makes the electric shower more advantageous than the rest? Here are the benefits this shower type has to offer:

  • 1. Endless Hot Water Supply Anytime, Anywhere

No more having to jump into a cold shower or wait for the water to heat up. Instead of wasting a ton of time in the shower waiting or freezing, you’ll be able to simply turn on your electric shower and water in your preferred temperature comes out instantly.

Because of this, you spend less time waiting in the shower or catching a cold from the wrong temperature. Regardless of the time and weather that day, you’ll always have hot water at the temperature you want.

  • 2. Cost-Effective and Saves More Than Just Money

People think that electric showers would cost a lot, from the initial investment down to the electricity bills. BUT, it actually saves you a lot in the long run because it comes with water and energy-saving features.

Plus, you won’t have to waste a ton of power having to heat water, only to repeat the process again if the unused portion of it gets cold. It minimizes the power usage as it only heats water when needed, and also have less water pressure compared to other shower systems.

  • 3. Constant Water Temperature

What I like about electric showers is that you will NEVER run out of hot water. As long as you have a supply of cold water, you have hot water on demand. The temperature will also never change as you shower, staying constant unless you change its thermostat setting.

How to Choose the Best Electric Shower This 2019

Electric showers have so many benefits to reap, but only if you choose the right one for your bathroom! You’ll be surprised that selecting the right electric shower kit isn’t just by choosing the most popular or expensive one. There are more things to look into for you to get your money’s worth.

Here are the important factors to consider when investing in the best electric shower this 2019:

Brand and Price
The most popular brands to choose from are:

  • Mira Showers
  • Aqualisa
  • Bristan
  • Triton
  • AKW

While you can choose electric shower brands outside this list, I highly recommend getting any from the above, as they’re known for their quality materials and efficient performances. They also usually come with a warranty and excellent customer service.
Besides this, you should consider your budget. While you don’t need to overspend on electric showers and get the priciest one, avoid scrimping as well. Remember, you get what you pay for so set a suitable budget and begin your search based on how much you can afford AND the features it offers.

Ease of Installation and Use

Your chosen electric shower should easily fit in your bathroom, leaving enough space and being compatible with your plumbing. Besides compatibility, it should be easy to install as well, having the understandable instruction manual so you can follow and set it up yourself.

I prefer electric showers that are easy to use as well. The readable settings and reachable dials help make my showers more enjoyable. It’s also easier for the younger ones in the family to use (though I don’t recommend very young children and those with disabilities to operate it alone).

Heating Efficiency and Safety

Of course, you’ll want your electric shower to perform well in terms of heating. After all, it’s the reason why you invest in it, so you’re able to have hot water quickly and without having to wait. With that being said, you’ll need to ensure that the shower kit you get is made up of the strong and quality materials which heat water instantly and without any problems.

It should also have safety features such as automatic power settings when not in use. This saves energy and prevents injuries or accidents

What's Your Preferred Flow Rate?
While electric showers use the supply of your home’s cold water, the flow rate relies on your shower kit’s KW power rating ratio when heating water. Here are the following flow rates:

  • 7.5KW showers supply 3.5 liters a minute
  • 9.8KW showers supply 4.7 liters a minute
  • 12.5KW showers supply 6.0 liters a minute

So if you’re living in cold weather or with more people, you might want something with a higher flow rate for hot water to come quickly.

Necessary Features
Here are some of the amazing features I want in an electric shower, which makes the experience better:

And did you know if you want something with more advanced technology (and if caring for someone), there are disability-inclusive electric showers to choose from? Some have wireless controls or mobile apps for careers to control the temperature, as well as LED indicators for impairments!

Tips on Cleaning and Maintaining Your Electric Shower

Once you have your own electric shower, you need to learn how to care for it. That way, these showers will be able to last long and work as well as it did when you first got it. To help you out, here are tips on how to care for your electric shower:

How to Clean Your Electric Shower

  • Clean the nozzles of your shower heads by using a toothbrush. You can also use your fingers, dislodging any buildups that collect after using the shower daily.
  • To fully soften and remove mineral buildup on your showerhead, soak it in vinegar for a few hours. After that, place it back on the shower pipe, running water for a few minutes to completely clean.
  • If ever your electric shower has filter screens, check it every now and then, which is located near the pump. Use small brushes so you can remove the buildup or deposits.
  • I recommend that you clean your shower head every month or so, depending on how many people use the shower and the frequency of usage.

Basic Shower Maintenance Tips

  • If you aren’t familiar with how to install an electric shower, it’s best to have a plumber or professional do it for you to prevent any accidents and injury during setup.
  • Never use the electric shower while its components aren’t covered. If ever there seems to be a problem with how the shower heats, do not continue to use it and check if everything is properly installed
  • It’s best to read the instruction and safety manual of your chosen electric shower before, during, and after installation. It’s better to know the possible faults and how to fix them immediately so as not to get hurt while using it.
  • Avoid putting too much pressure on the shower and using it continuously for hours daily. This prevents it from wearing down quickly

Wrapping It Up

When you want to have hot water every time you have a shower, then getting an electric shower can do wonders. Not only does it help you get better showers and baths, but it also has the possibility of saving energy and water in the long run. But that’s only if you get the right brand and model, which is why research (like reading this article!) is a must.

Of all the different kinds of electric showers available, the best one still goes to the Mira Showers Sports Max Electric Shower! What makes this on the top of my list is the fact that it comes with the sleek and modern design that matches many bathrooms.

Furthermore, it’s very easy to install and made of excellent materials, which make it strong and susceptible to scaling. From its many settings and quick response, it’s definitely worth the price.

I hope that this purchasing guide on the best electric shower this 2019 helped you out. So don’t wait any longer and look into any of these products today!

1. BRITA Elemaris Water Filter Jug

brita-elemaris-water-filter-jug

BRITA has a great water filter jug as they offer different types of colors to choose from, making it match your kitchen! Its slim design will fit any fridge compartment, but still hold a lot of water to last a day. It doesn't only act as a water filter, but as a flavor enhancer, making you more encouraged to drink water and replace sugary drinks. They do this through MAXTRA filtration and advanced technology. It doesn't only make water taste good, but enhances the flavor and taste of your coffee, juices or teas. There is even an intelligent meter to measure the amount of water that is filtered and unfiltered, as well as the time it will take to filter it. Based on reviews, it would most likely take a month before you will need to replace the filters.

Another great thing is that the company lessened the buildup of limescale, making it easier to clean and maintain. You won't need to keep cleaning it after usage, as it will be able to stay clean and do the job with ease.

There is also an automatic cover for refills, making it easier and convenient when wanting to fill water again. Like mentioned, it comes in different colors, making it stylish and looking great for those who want a certain color in their kitchen or home.

On the downside, the size may be a bit misleading. While it is said to carry 1 liter or 1.4 liters, it would actually be 0.25 liters less than that. But that still makes a great advantage, as that means it would be less likely to slip and spill if it were full, and you will be able to handle the weight. But for children or those with wrist problems, it can be a bit of a problem as it's heavy when filled.

With the acoustic method, you will discover that a pipe will deliver mechanical vibrations than the soil within its environment. These vibrations will move along the pipe and the soil and later emanating on the surface where the microphone can be used for detection. The acoustic method will also help you know the position of the pipe with the highest intensity.

B. Sonic Leak Detection:

The water will move out into the soil at high speed within its environment when a pressurized pipe experiences a leak. When this occurs, the material used for the pipe production will vibrate thoroughly at the exit section.

The pipe and water jet located in the location of the leak will as well suck vibration into the environment of the soil.

C. Electronic Helium Tracer-gas Location Units:

If you want to detect leaks in any closed system, storage tanks, or pressurized cables, the MGD-2002 remains the best instrument to use. The tracer gas will help to pressurize water within the location of detection. The MGD has the capability of detecting the slightest leaks in phone cables when its detection capability is reduced to twenty-five PPM.


During normal maintenance inspections, this equipment can help to correct and monitor Helium leaks. How can the MGD-2002 operate in detecting water leaks? To locate the actual area of the leak, Helium gas will be placed into the water pipeline.


With the help of the gas, you will be able to sense or discover a small exit and crack at any break.

  • check
    Water will move to the surface when most of these pipes become damaged or break. This is another reason why most basements usually experience warp or crack. Sewer leaks may include warped or uneven floors, bowed, rotated, or separated walls, cracks in moldings, bricks, titles, or floor and windows or doors that will not close.
