Best for Metering
All good water softeners meter the water.
But nothing meters better than the Harveys Minimax softener.
The metering of the Minimax is so specific it even measures a slow dripping tap which means that the softener can never be confused about how much capacity it has remaining, making it virtually impossible to get a blend of hard and soft water - your water will feel incredibly soft.
If you have had a softener previously, you are in for quite a treat - you will notice a real difference in how much softener the water feels.
Other American, European and Chinese water softeners are fitted with paddle meters, which are tiny in comparison, roughly the size of a 20p coin, and look something like an aeroplane propeller.
This older style of meter inherently cannot measure low flow rates, which means that trickle flow occurs, creating a blend of soft and hard water.
This often results in cosmetic staining - droplets of hard water being left on shower screens and sanitary wear.
