Soft Water - The Solution
A Lakeside water softener for every home and family
Our range of water softeners meet the needs of every size and type of household. Where space is really tight the powerful Lakeside 100, 300 and 500 ranges will provide softened water for up to 20 people and only measuring up 535mm high - they can be installed in virtually any location - kitchen cupboards, under the stairs, utility rooms, garage or even outside.

All our units are quiet and efficient in operation, removing the minerals that cause hard water - they are easy to install, set up and operate with minimum maintenance.

Simple Operation
All models are fully automatic, utilising a system known as 'ion exchange' they remove hardness by water passing through a special resin. Cleaning of the resin is initiated by either meter or time clock control. During this process known as ' regeneration', the resin is flushed with salt water which disperses the chalk the resin has collected and is automatically rinsed to drain. All you have to do is to top up the unit with salt from time to time. With out clear lid, it is easy to see when to add more salt.

Lakeside 500 Non Electric Metered Water Softener & Seperate Brine Tank 1-20 Persons - H:485mm x W:210mm x D:440mm + Tank H:485mm x W:210mm x D:440mmFREE Delivery on This Item  The Lakeside 500 Twin cylinder Non Electric Block Salt Softener 1-20 persons comes complete with a seperate brine tank for easy fill. The L500 comes with 1 Block Salt Starter Pack, 22mm Fitting Kit & FREE Delivery on This Item. How It Works. Made In England - “Lakeside 500” works by using Ion Exchange Resin to soften the water supply that comes into your home (Removing the hard water). All of the water that goes through the water softeners Ion Exchange resin becomes softened as the resin removes the calcium and magnesium in the water supply. It does this on a very clever twin vessel system combined with a main control valve. Whilst one vessel with resin is supplying your home with soft water, the other twin vessel is on standby waiting to take over.  When the 1st vessel is exhausted and cannot soften anymore water, the control valve switches over to the 2nd vessel allowing that to take over the function of the water softener. The 2nd vessel becomes the water softener and removes the hardness in the water in the same way as the 1st vessel did. This allows you to continue to receive soft water. What about Vessel 1. Well a small amount of brine solution made in the water softener brine tank of the L500 is then pulled through the resin to carry out the Ion Exchange process (removing the calcium and magnesium and replacing it with salt (sodium) – by doing this it in theory and practice cleans the resin of the harsh hard elements that have been collected them and allows the resin to work again, So when Vessel No 2 becomes exhausted, the same process begins again but No 1 takes over again and so on.. This cycle is called regeneration. Regeneration takes place as an when required allowing you 24-7 continous soft water. It is very efficient using less water than other water softeners. Installation - The L500 is very easy to install if you are competent at DIY. The system needs to have a seperate area for the brine tank, however when you have a large family and use lots of water, the L500s seperate salt tank (brine tank) is easy to fill on a regular basis. The system comes with instructions and a fitting kit 22mm as standard. (15mm and 28mm kits are available on request). The L500 covers many applications including combination boilers and pressurised systems, it also works well with applications where you have cold water storage and direct feed.
