So what should I look out for?
We have seen in more recent years, block salt suppliers in Portsmouth selling block salt that is either off white/grey and in some cases yellow in colour.
These salt blocks will typically hold grit and other minerals that will be too hard for the water softener to breakdown into brine or water. Leaving you with a grit sediment on the base of the salt hopper, in the brine or disrupting the flow of water at the outlet pipe on your machine.
Portsmouth New Harveys' Block Salt
You may have heard from some block salt suppliers they have had a shortage of block salt. At Softwater Supplies, as a Gold Harvey’s Block Salt Supplier & Distributor we have continued to carry and supply enough block salt to all our customers.
Regular Harvey’s Block salt users will have regularly seen the Harvey’s packaging (Black and White with 2 characters). In 2018 Harvey's block salts rebranded and have new packaging.

Salt is an essential element to enable your Portsmouth water softener to work correctly and efficiently and get rid of the calcium and magnesium in the water. Block salt cleans out your water softener and keeps it running efficiently and effectively. Your Portsmouth water softener will not work without it, so it is important to replenish your block salt as soon as it runs out.
Water softeners remove the minerals in hard water by catching them in the resin within your water softener. The build-up of minerals in the needs to be flushed out regularly and so your water softener 'regenerates'. Your Portsmouth water softener regenerates one cylinder at a time: the amount of water passing through the first cylinder is measured by a water meter and when enough water has passed through, the second cylinder takes over. Meanwhile, the first cylinder regenerates by flushing out this mineral using a mixture of soft water and sodium (salt).
All you need to do to keep this process running smoothly is refill your softener's salt every few weeks using Twintec block salt, which is much easier to handle than loose salt. Simply slot the required amount of block salt into the device at a set time.
