You might be asking why we at Carpenter’s, as a Nursery and Farm Shop, would be carrying a range of salt granules, tablets and blocks. After requests from customers we’ve been stocking salt tablets, granules and blocks for over 20 years!
What is salt for?
Because the water within Hertfordshire is general ‘hard’ many people install water softeners within their homes to soften the water. The leading mineral in most hard water is calcium, salt cuts the amount of calcium deposited, making your water softer and changing the pH value of your water. This makes prolongs the life of appliances like dishwashers and washing machines as well as steam irons etc. It is also nicer to shower and bath in and makes your clothes feel nice and fluffy!
Is There a Difference between Granules, Tablets and Block Salt?
If you are looking at salt to add to your water softening unit you generally use salt tablets, many new models of water softener now use salt blocks as well. When using salt to de-ice drives and walkways, rock salt invariably work best.

Salt granules are used in dishwashers to make the water a bit softer, helping to prevent those dreaded spots on glasses and crystal goblets that are dishwasher safe. Of the brands we love to carry, Hydrosoft granules and tablets are best sellers as are Harvey’s salt blocks. We have found them all to be of the highest quality and our customers have been coming back for years and years to get their supply of salt as needed.
