    Hard water problem

    Has anyone had hard water problems in the past and been able to resolve it ? We have hard water and the water tastes odd and the cars done wash properly. Can anyone suggest what needs to be done to overcome this problem ? Thanks

    There are electronic devices promoted by a shopping channel (Ideal World?). I don't know if they actually work as we do not have a problem here.

    The best solution is a Water Softener, I have one that I lease from Harvey Water Softeners, they installed it, they own it, I pay £20 a month and also have to buy the salt blocks which work out about £5 a month, I can honestly say it is fantastic, you save a considerable amount on household cleaning and also use far less shampoo, shower gel etc the difference is very noticeable, also makes a big difference when washing clothes I now use one washing tablet in my washing machine instead of two.
    Although it costs £25 a month, I probably save half that in cleaning products.

    Thanks guys!

    morning: Any links for that please ?

    harveysofteners.com/ mine is the non electric one, god knows how it works but is brilliant, you can buy them but they are expensive, but they will most definately pay for themselves over a period of time

    we have like this one and its brilliant! its a qvc one-just change the tube when you need to. If someone fills the kettle from the tap without the filter we can taste it-we make sure we fill the iron etc from it too. It is a small extra tap on our sink unit-partner connected it up years ago. We dont use it for washing the car etc...dont seem to have a lather problem!
