Hia having a problem with the water treatment unit in our house and we’re not going to use the original fitter. Does anyone know who fixes/services these in the East meath region. thank youNovember 5, 2010 at 3:19 pm #103951EJMember
We bought ours from EWT, but I found a set of replacement filters on EBAY for €20 from a guy in cork, and instructions on the web, and we fitted them ourselves. 😆
If you’re in any way handy you could try it.November 5, 2010 at 4:49 pm #103953
Thanks for the reply, thats a really good idea! There is a knocking noise coming from it so I think it needs to be looked at too.November 5, 2010 at 8:50 pm #103974
When you said water treatment unit, do you mean a salt treament softener or just a filter unit under the sink?November 5, 2010 at 9:04 pm #103979
AFAIK it’s both. The unit outside is making the knocking noise and the filters under the sink need changing too.November 5, 2010 at 10:28 pm #103990
you can get the filters online for 20 euro… the one outside shouldnt need a service, just open it up and have a look, something could have gotten into the water, a leaf etc
When i got mine i was told it wouldnt ever need a service….. just have a little look at it, they are very very basic units…. if you cant figure out yourself then any plumber would be able to have a lookNovember 5, 2010 at 10:43 pm #104001
Thanks very much Taylor. I’ll have a proper look tomorrow, hopefully it’s only dirt or something like you said. I had a feeling we were being ripped off alright and for the price of the filters on ebay – I can see by how much… 🙄November 5, 2010 at 10:46 pm #104003
have you got your filter in the garden boxed in or is it out in the open?
i think they have to be boxed in to prevent frosting up in the winter…. i opened the box on ours last year, to find a mouse trying to make a nest in the box!!!!!
Oh dont know where you are in Ireland but im in Drogheda and DPL sell the salt for 7 euro a bag… best price about, half the price of the garden centreNovember 6, 2010 at 12:27 am #104018
Eaughh on the mouse! Yes we have it in a small plastic shed, it didn’t get frosted but neither did we really, we’re in Mornington. I can’t believe €7!!! We had to do a minumum order of 10 bags with the original fitter – lead to believe that we couldn’t use any other than their supplied brand and it worked out €150, just checked the invoice earlier!! 👿
Thanks again for the advice on this. 😀November 6, 2010 at 12:53 am #104020
Blacks garden centre are either 13 or 15 euro a bag!!!
DPL is 8 euro but if you buy 2 you get for 7e
No real frost yet… i would ring them if not that long fitted, it could be as simple as a flexi pipe shaking under the pressure of the water…. is the knocking constant or just for the hour or so that its filling, ours is set to fill at about 3am!!! The neighbour has said more than once that she can hear it filling with water 😳 whoops!
Good luckNovember 8, 2010 at 8:24 am #103987
They’re noisey alright! the knocking was all the time, I unplugged it on Saturday, disconnected and reconnected it and it seems to be ok, for now at least – delighted with myself lest I speak too soon. Thanks for the tips Taylor. Usually I’m afraid touch anything electric as I’ve the opposite of the Midas touch 😆November 8, 2010 at 1:07 pm #104082
When i got mine fitted that man who sold it said they dont need to be serviced at all as the unit is very basic…..
