Water Softener Systems

Completely eliminate limescale and soap scum with our water softener systems, by providing beautifully soft water to the whole house, 24 hours a day.

Do you have an issue with hard water?

Do your appliances regularly have a build-up of limescale and/or does your water taste nasty?

It is no secret that hard water can have a negative impact on your quality of life by not only causing frustration to you but also damage to your home. It can also cause havoc with your skin and hair. Hard water reduced the skins’ ability to retain water, turning it dry and flaky. It can also result in dull, brittle hair.

At One Eight Filtration we have a range of hard water softeners for you to choose from – we can specify the correct softener for your needs where we can guarantee 100% limescale removal. You can also install a water filter (Reverse Osmosis Filter, UV Water Filer & Carbon Water Filter) that will result in removal of all chlorine, fluoride, lead, bacteria, bad taste and odour.

Benefits of water softeners


         Benefits of Soft Water 

1. Skin & Hair

The benefits of soft water on skin and hair are undeniable.  Customers have reported that their dry scalp has disappeared completely since the installation.  Research shows eczema and other skin conditions caused by the drying of skin due to hard water may be alleviated.  The suggestion is that soft water is better to wash with, and therefore needs less soap or detergent, clear irritants for people with eczema.  Your shampoo will lather up easily when washing your hair and will leave your hair soft, shiny and manageable.  No more flaky scalp! Even better, you will enjoy softer skin.

2. Household Appliances

Softeners will, over time remove all existing scale from within all the household pipes and appliances and on surfaces such as showers and baths.  You will not need to replace them as soon as you would if you had the effects of hard water.  It will also prevent scale build-up from re-occurring.

3. Showerhead & Screen

You can banish clogged up shower heads, no more sticking toothpicks in the holes or soaking them in vinegar every month.
Your shower screen will not need strong harmful chemicals to get it only half clean.  With softened water, it sparkles like new with only a wipe over.

4. Money Saving

Studies show that water softening can save a 4-person household an average of €200 per year.
As well as saving on washing powder or detergent, you also save considerable amounts of money on all the other cleaning products used, such as kitchen and bathroom cleaners, shower cleaners, scale removers, floor cleaners, whilst looking after our environment.  Your boiler and heating system, plumbing, hot water cylinder, washing machine, dish washer, water heater will all run more efficiently and their life expectancy will be extended by 10%, it all adds up!

5. Environment

Installing a water softener will also help save the environment.  The excessive amounts of chemicals used in our cleaning products mostly go down the drain.  By reducing this substantially you will help save our streams and rivers from the ravages of chemical degradation.


There are two specific situations where the use and drinking of softened water are inadvisable.

  1. In the reconstitution of infant formula powders, softened water could affect its fine nutritional balance.
  2. For anyone on a medically prescribed low sodium diet.
