Chris, I’ve got an ’emergency’ phone that I use even less than that. It’s with Asda Mobile and what I liked is that the minimum top-up is just a fiver. Can’t remember what the expiry is for inactivity, possibly 3 months, but you can probably check on their website. I’ve not had a problem yet though, and their cust service seems good. There’s also White Mobile who do £5 top-ups. Their cust service isn’t as good in my experience, but the rates are very good (you get what you pay for) and I rarely have to contact them anyway.
The good news is that if you’ve noticed dish spots and water spots in your kitchen this little unit can reduce those greatly. For consumers that don’t want a salt based water softener this is one of the friendlier alternatives on the list. Water is made so much more palatable with this little unit, which is incredible when you consider the size. Other great benefits such as no regeneration features means no manual maintenance or wait time while still having one of the most ecofriendly systems on the list. A lot less water is used as the system is more mindful of the process, and with more reliable parts than a salt water system, users will be a lot less concerned about the life of the product. This is a very good technology that has been patented, and as such is the only one of its kind. Be aware that there may be companies that use the same technology but are not licensed, meaning that their system is inferior to this one. This is one of the bigger surprises on the list, as the greenest option and also the smallest. It’s a definite top 3 winner, and should be at the top of everyone’s list when looking for a great water softener.
