Hydrotec is excited to announce that our HydroION range of water softeners has received full product WRAS approval, which at the time of writing, makes it the largest range of WRAS approved commercial water softeners available in the UK.

The process required extensive independent material and performance testing on each of the individual components comprising every one of the 80 newly approved models, the purpose of which was to ensure that the range is fully compliant with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations, which require that a product should not cause waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of the water supply and must be ‘of an appropriate quality and standard’.

In addition to the commercial range, our domestic range of water softeners, the HydroION VAK range has also received full product WRAS approval, making it one of only a handful of WRAS approved electromechanical water softeners available in the UK.


As well as WRAS approval our range of water softeners are independently tested and validated in compliance with BS EN 14743 and DIN 19636-100. Two purposefully developed standards for the performance and safety of water softeners.


They also offer an economic waste water production rate of <4% of total production capacity, which is detailed in Part G of the Building Regulations and offers a Carbon Neutral solution as defined by the Code for Sustainable Homes.
