Installing a water softener in a first-floor flat

We can install a Harvey water softener in a flat, apartment or in any kind of property, it doesn’t matter what floor you live on. The only requirement is that the property has its own water supplywith its own stopcock somewhere that turns off the water to the property. It cannot be a shared supply, with one stopcock for more than one dwelling. 

During your free demonstration, our representative will talk to you about the possible locations for the water softener in your apartment or flat, so that you can be sure that you will be happy with it. Most people choose to install a softener under their kitchen sink, but if that’s not suitable in your flat, we will help you find a solution that meets your particular needs. 

Because our water softener demonstration team has so much experience, the chances are that your representative will have visited a similar property before. They’ll have plenty of ideas about where you could install your flat or apartment water softener, based on their direct knowledge of what’s worked for other people. 

Before your installation, we’ll get in touch to find out about access arrangements and parking at your property. That’s just so our installers know what to expect and can plan where to park their van and how to transport their tools and your softener into your home. If you don’t have a private driveway or parking close to your door, we’ll find an alternative. We might just have to allow a little more time for the installation – we like to plan ahead so we can keep our team on schedule!
