The Kind Water team have been fantastic throughout this process. First they visited our house and explained the product and did a really thorough job of exploring the different installation options we had. This entire process was free. There was then a gap of 3 months until we decided to go ahead, and they were happy to honour the price. The installation process itself was completed in a day, which included installing a water softener outside in a weather protected case, and installing a water filtration system in the house. The quality of the workmanship is faultless, and again the thoroughness that the staff went through to ensure everything was exactly how we wanted it was exceptional. In terms of the product itself we could not be happier. We were at the highest end of hard water, with just over 400 calcium carbonate parts per million, which is unusually high. Over 400 tips the scales when the department of health do not recommend drinking water that has been through a softener requiring that much of a calcium reduction. This led to our decision for the filtration system as well. All of this was in consultation with the Kind Water staff who were objective, friendly and helpful. At no stage did we feel under any pressure, and the overwhelming impression was of a company and team who know their product and market extremely well. Now we have softened water for washing and appliances, and filtered water for drinking and using in kettles and coffee. Fantastic!
