Hardness Test kits
If you’d like to check the effectiveness of your water softener then use one of our hardness test kits to check. £8.50 inc VAT
Using too much salt?
If you feel that your water softener is using too much salt then it may require adjustment. The hardness setting could be set too high. Use the hardness test kit to find out the incoming raw water hardness and then reset the water softener controls to match the reading.
Another cause of excessive salt consumption can be abnormally high levels of water usage which could be the result of a water leak or garden watering.
