View Our COVID-19 Update - 20/05/20

We continue to strive hard to protect our customers, and have strict procedures in place to ensure your safety.

In most circumstances, we are now able to carry out home visits for the purpose of servicing equipment, replacing filters, and delivering salt. We can also now visit your home to help you choose the right softener for your needs (a sales visit), and safely carry out installations as well.

The only exceptions are if someone is either shielding, self-isolating or has symptoms of Coronavirus within your home.

If you would like your salt delivered to you, when we arrive at your home we will place the salt outside the front of your home in the preferred location.

We can also now carry out free of charge health checks on your water softener once more.

If you should happen to have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me on hello@hydroworks.co.uk

My very best

Harvey Minimax Water Softeners

Harvey's premier brand of water softeners

The ultimate in Softened Water - nothing comes closer to "as soft" as the Harvey's Minimax

Reliable        Local        Independent        Highly experienced

So, you're considering having a water softener installed into your home?

You've probably been doing a lot of research on the internet, you may have spoken to friends or family who already have one, and it's likely you may have already had a couple of quotes.

So what are you finding out?

No doubt everyone is telling you that their softener is better than the rest, and, if I know my industry as well as I do, there is a lot of confusion being disseminated.

You may well appreciate some help to sift through the information you have received.

An area where we often find confusion filtering through relates to what is and is not true about the different brands sold by Harvey Softeners, including the claims that some of their softeners are better than others.

So we will attempt to give you all the information you need to answer any questions you may have, and enable you to make an accurate and fully informed decision.

This page covers the features and the benefits of their top brand, Minimax.

In January 2020, Harveys launched the 4th generation of Block Salt Softener, and it really is packed full of very clever technology, and tremendous performance testing.

To help clear up any confusion you may have about the Harvey top brands, I've written a page all about the differences between Harveys, TwinTec and Minimax.  You can access our Comparisons page here
