Softened water can make all the difference for eczema sufferers

The new HarveyArc water softener will soften your water and alleviate the effect hard water has on skin. The minerals in hard water can irritate and damage the skin’s natural barrier, and even worsen conditions such as eczema. Softened water is kinder to skin and doesn’t leave any mineral residue behind.

With 15 million people in the UK suffering from eczema, hard water can be a major irritant and cause of both eczema and other related skin conditions. A water softener connects to your mains water supply and provides your entire home with softened water.

Harvey Water Softeners worked with the University of Sheffield to publish a study that shows the link between hard water and eczema. The study found that hard water does ultimately make eczema worse, and that it can cause an irritable skin barrier that could cause eczema in healthy skin. This was particularly apparent in infants where washing with hard water can contribute to the early development of eczema from a very young age.

A water softener can reduce the risk of developing eczema by reducing the irritant magnesium and calcium left from washing.

  • Our twin cylinder design means a continuous flow of softened water with no interruptions.
  • Tested to 1 million cycles to ensure reliability.
  • Fitted directly to your mains water supply meaning that all the water flowing through your home will be softened.
  • Our WiF-enabled i-Lid integrates with the myHarvey app to automatically monitor salt levels.
  • The exterior of our HarveyArc is made from 68% less plastic than our previous models, and 32% of the plastic we do use is recycled.
  • Our bypass valve lets you easily shut of water to your softener if you need to.
  • We install a drinking water tap as standard if you prefer the taste of hard water, or can add on recommended specialist taps and filters.
  • Accurate metering measures every drop of water, meaning no water is wasted.

3-year Warranty

Our water softeners need no maintenance except for regular salt refills, and they last between 10 and 15 years in your home before they need to be upgraded. If you come across any issues though, you’re covered in the first three years by our warranty, which includes parts and labour. We’ll offer support and troubleshooting via customer care and send a technician out to repair if it needs it.

We have a number of softener models and will recommend the best one for you based on the size of your home, household and water usage. We’ll assess your needs during a demonstration where we will provide a no-obligation quote. To book a demo, just give us a call or request a callback – our experts will be happy to help.

Softened water is perfectly safe to drink. There are a few precautionary exceptions (including for those on low sodium diets) but whether you want to or not is simply a matter of taste and preference. Salt is used in the softening process to clean and regenerate the resin that softens the water, but no salt gets into the water supply itself.

Many people choose to have a drinking water tap installed at the same time as their Harvey water softener to have a hard water supply to drink because they prefer the taste – this is standard in our installations. Alternatively, they add on a specialist tap and water filters to have delicious filtered drinking water or sparkling water on demand.

Our water softener works by removing the calcium and magnesium in your water supply through the process of ion exchange. Your softener’s twin cylinders are filled with millions of microscopic sodium charged resin beads which will attract all of the calcium and magnesium and replace those with sodium, giving fully softened water. When the resin becomes exhausted, a regeneration will take place, flushing all of the calcium and magnesium from the resin using a concentrated brine solution (that’s where the salt in your softener comes in) to return the resin to its original state, ready for the next softening cycle.

No. The Smart HarveyArc has a WiFi-enabled i-Lid that automatically monitors your salt levels and sends the data to the myHarvey app, but if you want to use the softener without the app that is fine. You’ll still get to enjoy market-leading softener technology and all of the benefits of softened water. Your installer can set it up for you either way, and you can decide to use the app at a later date if you want.

Check the water hardness in your area

The main visual signs of hard water are limescale build up around your taps, shower and kitchen or bathroom surfaces, and white chalky scale in your kettle, although the limescale also builds up in invisible places like your pipes and appliances. Around 50% of the UK – 13 million households – suffer with hard water.
