The Aquabion was quick and easy to fit and we noticed a difference with our water quality really quickly. The shower screen now just needs a quick wipe to clean - no more scrubbing!Lynn Harvey
A truly remarkable piece of kit. Like everyone I was a bit sceptical at first but this unit has been fit and forget and so easy to install. We are a hard water area and limescale was an unsightly problem but is now a thing of the past. Unit starting its 5th year in use and no deterioration in performance noticed yet.Graham Martin
I bought the mini version for the shower some time ago and it has worked so well that I am looking to buy the S20! Really seems to workTom
Been using the mini for while has made a a big difference really pleased.Andea
Have only had a few weeks but notice that kettle is not furring any more and Machines are cleaner.Clairerose
We have very hard water and lime scale is a problem for all appliances and particularly the shower. Had a refit recently and incorporated an Aquabion Mini .... only a month in but looks good. Will be adding one to washing machine soon ... as we have been through 3 machines in 10 yearsJulian Humphreys
I needed a water softener for our house as we live in a very hard water area. Previously we had had an ancient, conventional softener that involved sourcing and adding salt, but it died. So reading that the Aquabion did with out salt I was eager to investigate. The technology and reviews seemed sound and convincing so I bought one. Works well, and our limescale problem is no more.Roger Stevens
The differences with an Aquabion installed. my hands no longer get dried out. The kettle does not have scale constantly building up, there is still some soft scale which flakes off but nothing like before. The shower head no longer blocks up. The toilets no longer have stains caused by scale build up. The taps remain scale free and easy to clean, just a quick wipe. The shower screens are clear with no scale patterns building up. Soap goes much further and produces loads of bubbles which are now almost to plentiful and are hard to get rid of! Wish I'd found the Aquabion years ago.Aron Cool
Had the aquabion fitted earlier this year and yes it really does work.
We had a new bathroom fitted as well and as we live in a hard water area I was concerned my lovely bathroom would end up like my old one ...covered in lime scale.
We are very happy with this product .
Living in London we are used to hard water, but after an expensive bathroom refit, which included a new hot water tank, our plumber recommended fitting an Aquabion unit. This has proven to be an excellent move, with no trace of limescale on any of the new surfaces or fittings, and lovely silky water from all the taps. Also, much more convenient than salt-based systems, and takes up no space in our apartment. Would recommend Aquabion highly to anyone contemplating a water softener.David
I have fitted lots of Aquabions and have always had the same response from my customers... "What a great product!" It does everything that it says it will do, so I am impressed and would fully recommend!Aqua Sensation
The unit has now been installed for a month, and I must admit it is performing better than expected.
due to the pipework being installed around thirty years ago I expected to see some minor changes with the water but thought it would take a lot longer to clear the lime scale, but we see a vast improvement just after a month.
The plumber took about 1 hour to install the unit due to having to modify some of the other pipework.
I would recommend this system to others.
AMAZING!!! I am so impressed with the mini Aquabion for the shower. We live in a hard water area and I wanted to fit a water softener because my son has eczema with very dry patches of skin. I also have dry skin and I knew that the shower needing constant cleaning was due to the hard water. Since fitting the mini Aquabion (which was so easy) I can't believe the difference it has made. Our skin is softer, my son's eczema is hardly noticeable anymore, my hair feels so soft and looks so much better and to top it all the shower hardly needs cleaning at all.
I am recommending this to all my friends and family...
Living in a hard water area and having to replace the secondary heat exchanger on our combi boiler due to lime scale build up proved to be the catalyst to searching for a solution to our hard water problem. I looked at salt based water softeners but space/maintenance/cost/drinking water issues just meant they didn’t add up, others which use a drip feed to dope the water just seemed really expensive and significantly impacted the output water pressure. So the Aquabion sacrificial anode solution just really picked itself, the small form factor, no impact on water pressure and no need for maintenance really stood out against the competition. The system was installed 3 months ago and it has exceeded our expectations. The shower screen which we could not get clear of lime scale build up is now completely clear and requires a simple wipe down every week. Not having used this product before I was a little dubious but willing to give it a chance. I now have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this product to anyone who suffers from problems with hard water.Shane Stainsby
Having deliberately waited nearly two years to write a review, I can now safely say the product works exactly as described. It is relatively easy to fit and is unobtrusive under the kitchen sink. I’m a fan.Tony Hill
I bought the small Aquabion attachment for my shower. I found it extremely easy to install (less than 5 minutes).
I have very sensitive skin but since using this gadget my skin has been noticeably softer and in much better condition.
I have no reservation about recommending it . Excellent product.
After quite a delay in having the unit installed (due to building issues) the results are very impressive. I live in a hard water area and limescale was a problem on brightwork and glass. The unit has all but eliminated limescale and as other clients have mentioned a quick wipe removes any powdery residue. Glass screens remain clear. Although I understood the science behind the product I was sceptical about how useful the unit would be. I was wrong it works very well indeed.David
I'm very pleased that I replaced a unit that was installed 2 years ago, the new unit is very small and seemed to soften (Aquabion does not soften the water. Jeff just means treat.) the water better than the old unit, the main advantage of the new unit was increased water pressure to taps and shower as the old unit had a high-pressure loss.Jeff D
Without doubt, one of the best buys of my life. after 7 years in a super hard water area in North Islington, salt softener hell, when I moved into my new property 3.5 years ago, I couldn't face fitting a new one and looked for other options and so bought the Equation based on some dodgy youtube videos. Was sceptical, but needed an alternative to horrible salt tablets.
Two weeks after my new black slate bathroom had been fitted, but before any of the other plumbing work had been done, I knew I had to get the aquabion fitted- the new shower head holes blocking up in 2 weeks, and the grout was covered in limescale. Not good.
Once fitted by the plumber, the difference was immediate. Limescale build up has never got back to that initial 2 week build, and the need to limescale remover products is a white wine vinegar clean once every month.
I know for sure- my bathroom would have been a total wasted investment without the aquabion and would recommend to anyone.
Only because the plumber who recommended an Aquabion had greatly impressed me with the quality of his work did I accept his recommendation to install one in our flat in London. After installation, there seemed to be less limescale in the shower, but I was suspicious that I was simply seeing what I wanted to see. Then my wife said there was less limescale on the kitchen counter -- which tends to be very noticeable, since our counter is black. So I ran a test. I made a small puddle on the counter with a few drops of water drawn from our kitchen tap and another with a few drops drawn from a utility tap elsewhere in the building. I did not tell my wife which puddle was which. Even before the puddles had fully dried, she readily identified the puddle from the (non-Aquabion-protected) utility tap, for it was clearly leaving much more residue.
If I were doing this again, I would take post-shower photos of the shower cubical before and after installation of the Aquabion. That would provide me with a clear indication as to the Aquabion's effectiveness.
Since we have had this product fitted our water has been great for our skin, great for our dishwasher and washing machines as we notice our clothes feel fresher. I would recommend this product to my friends and further suggest that this product will save you money in the long term as it will reduce issues with pipe clogging up. All new homes being built in a hard water area should have this product fitted as a mandatory instruction for all buildersKen Murphy
