The Hartley Wintney (18 hole) Golf club has been in existence for over 100 years and has the most beautiful tranquil surroundings with mature trees and water hazards.
The area does however suffer from Hard Water and Kevin Goody (UK Water Softeners) has been looking after the residents of Hartley Wintney for over 19 years and has over 4500 customers locally.
He recommends the TwinTec S3 water softener (manufactured by Harvey Water Softeners), the softener is small, twincylinder, has no electrics and it takes Block Salt (like two housebricks) so there are no heavy 25 kg bags of salt to hump around.
If you would like to find out more ring Kevin Goody on 01276 27924 or fill in one of the on-line forms for further information.
"I had been wanting to purchase a water softener for some time and looked at various types available. I have definitely made the right choice in this model as is so easy to use and the salt being in blocks is much easier than the old bags of salt which are so heavy to carry.
I like the fact that there is no electricity and no complicated set up needed; it just looks after itself. You only have to put the blocks of salt in and then you can forget about it. Installation was very quick and Kevin Goody (UK Water Softeners) was very efficient and able to answer any questions I had. Wish had bought one earlier!"
