EcoWater Systems began in 1925 when its founding father Lynn G Lindsay was awarded the first of many patents for water softening. Today with more than 40 active patents, EcoWater makes the most innovative and advanced water softeners on the market. 

EcoWater Systems: At the Forefront of Smart Technology

EcoWater components are renowned in the water treatment industry for their reliability and longevity. With a heritage of 90 years, built on best in class technological innovation, EcoWater Systems continues to set the standards for the industry as a whole. The EcoWater softener range is provided by the oldest and largest water treatment company in the world.

EcoWater Systems in the UK first traded as United Water Softeners.  In 1937 the company was renamed The Permutit Company and in 1990 the company became part of the global company EcoWater Systems.

EcoWater Systems is a member of  The Marmon Group and a subsidiary of the Berkshire Hathaway Company.   As the world’s largest manufacturer of automatic domestic water softeners, EcoWater Systems gives you the highest quality and safest products.  Manufactured in the USA, EcoWater is sold all over the world with offices in USA, Canada, Europe, China and of course the UK.

We know purchasing a water softener is an investment.  So we strengthen every purchase with excellent service and support.  And we’ll do the same in the future – with none of the uncertainty that comes with not quite as established brands.

EcoWater UK combines the best of both worlds: a long established British company combined with the expertise of a world leader.

Recycling your old electricals is easy!

Recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the Recycle More website and type in your postcode.

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste.

Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.

We’re proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment.

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.

What is WEEE?

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.

How are we helping?

In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS).

To find more information on WEEE recycling and to locate your nearest recycling centre please visit the Recycle More website.

Recycling Service for Businesses

As part of the WEEE Directive requirements businesses who own EcoWater Systems products can apply for disposal of EcoWater equipment.  Contact us for further information.
