Comparison of Water Softeners

We’re an award-winning water softener company based in Christchurch, Dorset.

We know that water softeners can be divided into two groups. In short, some have been cleverly designed in recent times, a great example being the Minimax M3.

However there are many older designs that are still on the shelves being incorrectly marketed as ‘best water softeners’ but they fall very short of giving customers the modern day experience of consistently perfectly soft water!
