With a Water Softener Installation Kit you can install your softener at home yourself. We provide a range of softener fitting kits and accessories to assist an installation at home. It is important that you buy the right kit to fit your softener and plumbing system. If you still need help, feel free to enquire online or call us directly to speak to one of our experts.
The size and type of installation kit you need depends on your water flow rate and the overall pressure of water flowing through the Softener and into your property.
Things To Consider:
Is Your Hot Water System Vented or Unvented? This depends on if you have a hot water tank system or a combi boiler. Unvented systems use water from the mains supply and are hot water storage cylinders. Vented systems use a storage (usually located in your loft).
Do You Know The Mains Pipe Size?
What Length of Hose Do You Required? Usually as the mains pipe size increases you may need a longer hose. They come in 0.75 m, 1m or 1.25m.
Finding the Right Product For Your Home Water Softener:
Standard 15mm Installation Fitting Kit: this kit is a common connection size used in the UK and is used usually in households that have a vented system. The 15mm is compatible with traditional cold-water storage tanks in the loft.
22mm Kit: Properties that have an unvented or pressurised hot water system (mega flow system), usually have pipe work with measurements of 22mm. The Hi-Flo 22mm Installation Kit would be needed here.
A Hi-Flo 28mm Kit: is used in an unvented mega flow type system where the pipework uses 28mm and your softener has 1" connections.
