Our Salt

Salt is necessary to keep your water softener running while supplying your household with softened water 24 hours a day. The Minimax M3 works with block salt, a much more convenient form of salt. The individual blocks only weigh 4kg each, compared to the heavy 25kg tablet salt bags, meaning they are easier to load, carry and store.

Why water softeners need salt

Once placed in the water softener, the salt slowly dissolves to create a brine solution in the base of the water softener.This brine solution is an important part the water softener’s regeneration or “cleaning” cycle.
When the resin in the water softener’s cylinder has reached its max capacity for capturing hard minerals, the brine solution enters the cylinder to clean the resin and it removes the hardness minerals from the cylinder.

What our customers say

I cannot understand why people in hard water areas do not invest in a water softener. In 14 years we have had no scale build up anywhere, we have never had to clean the shower head, and our central heating has never had to be drained down.

It’s a neat unit and installation was done by Vickery Water Softeners, who were knowledgeable, professional and expert at problem-solving when the need arose. We felt we were in safe hands!

We just had a Minimax M2 installed about 10 days ago after moving to the Reading area from South Wales. We really struggled with the hard water marking of sanitary ware and taps and the difference it made with detergents etc. It is probably one of the best items we’ve bought as it’s made such a difference.
