Why use a water softener?
60% of UK households experience the damaging effects of hard water. It is caused by naturally occurring limescale which is collected by the water source as it filters through rocks in the earth, before it reaches our water supply.
In a hard water area, the symptoms can be seen all around the home. Scale leaves marks on your cutlery and crockery, stains your basin, bath and taps, narrows the plumbing in your boiler and tanks, and reduces the life span of your hot water system.
Everywhere that hard water is used will be affected, not only unsightly visible effects, but more damaging and potentially costly, hidden effects too. Government statistics show that scale builds at approximately 1.5 mm every year. By the time this has built up to just 6 mm of scale your fuel efficiency can be reduced by up to 40%.
Eventually, your plumbing and heating systems become
so inefficient, they require replacement.
Soft water will maintain your new heating system,
bathroom and kitchen in pristine condition,
prolonging its lifetime and maintaining efficiency.
