THE MANY ADVANTAGES OF SOFT WATER
Limescale forms wherever hard water flows, is still or dries, and is caused by the calcium and magnesium ions that are dissolved in the water. These are responsible for its hardness and its consequences manifest as furred-up pipes and water systems or as limescale deposits on household appliances, fixtures and fittings. Having the right limescale protection is also essential for keeping your drinking water safe, because calcium deposits encourage more rapid bacterial growth in your domestic water system. The consequences can be dramatic and very expensive.
For this reason alone, we recommend that you install a water softening system based on the ion exchange principle. This removes the calcium and magnesium ions from the water and replaces them with sodium ions. The result is beautifully soft water that has many advantages: soft water in the shower, cuddly soft laundry, maximum limescale protection for pipes, boilers and domestic appliances, and time and money saved from a reduction in the need for cleaning; all of which create an enhanced feeling of wellbeing.
