Hard Waters Problems? You Need This Filter

Hard Waters Problems? You Need This Filter

Prevent limescale damage to appliances and pipes and have a constant supply of soft water with Perfect Water‘s Kinetico non-electric water softener.


Due to our geology, most of Ireland has hard water. In Irish homes, the high levels of calcium and magnesium in water reacts with soap and detergents causing build-up on shower doors, damaged hair, dry skin, and eczema. It also chokes pipes and appliances (like kettles, washing machines, dishwashers and showers) with limescale that dramatically shortens their lifespan. This results in many households spending up to four times as much on soaps, detergents, and appliances than people who have installed a Kinetico non-electric water softener from Perfect Water Systems Ltd.

Perfect Water Systems was set up in 1995 by Colm Dawson to improve water quality in homes across Ireland and is based in Charleville, Co. Cork. The motto? “The reward for work well done, is the opportunity to do more is the cornerstone of our business,” says Colm. “The majority of our work comes from recommendations from our existing customers.”

A? Compact Kinetico Premier Water Softener fits discreetly under a kitchen sink.

“We are sole agents for Kinetico Water Systems, a world-renowned water treatment company considered one of the finest in the industry. Our filters have been installed in thousands of residential homes and large-scale businesses, such as Guinness Brewery and Crumlin Children’s Hospital.”

“This filter is powered by moving water, with no need for electrical input, and so doesn’t require electric timers that have malfunction potential,” says Colm. “This keeps the operating system simple and reliable – all you need to do is add blocks of salt.

The Kinetico Softener has two cylinders, as opposed to one, like most conventional water softeners have, so it can supply soft water from one cylinder while regenerating in the other,” explains Colm. “So, you’ll always have soft water at your fingertips and all units come with a ten-year warranty.”

Perfect Water Systems also offers a range of services with the best technology in drinking water filters, RO filters, to remove chlorine and fluoride, pH correctors, iron and manganese filters, and ultra violet, bacteria control.
