More than 60% of Britain is affected by the effects of hardwater*.
What does hard water mean – Best Electronic Water Descalers?
“Hard water” is water that has high levels of dissolved metals, such as calcium and magnesium. It does not pose any health risks, but it can cause many other problems.
Living in a hardwater area can cause problems.
The soap, shampoo, or detergent performance can be affected if there is hard water. This is very harmful to the environment.
Your hair may appear dull.
Skin feels dry.
Clothes are more difficult for you to rinse.
Sometimes, scum deposits can make fabrics feel rough.
Scale combined soap creates scum. This sticks to taps, tiles and basins, making it difficult to clean.
The hard water that is heated can build up scale deposits at a rate 1.5mm per calendar year. This can cause pipes to swell and boilers and tanks lose their capacity. The government has shown that 6mm can cause a reduction in efficiency of heating systems by up to 38%. This has obvious costs and impacts on the environment. To replace an average domestic boiler, it could cost over PS1,000.
The performance and longevity of domestic appliances that heat hot water such as your dishwasher, washer and dryer are affected by limescale. This can also have an impact on the cost of running your home.
Extra costs such as limescale removers or fabric softeners can amount to over PS200 per year. Your washing machine may require five times more soap and upto 30% more detergent if your home is located in a hard water zone.
How to minimize the adverse effects of hardwater
Use the correct soaps, detergents.
You can use a lower temperature setting on your washer, dishwasher, and boiler.
An electronic descaler can be installed to soften the water.
Electronic water descalers have many advantages
Reduce substantial “scum marks” on sinks and baths.
A chemical-free solution for water softening
No moving parts. You can just fit it and forget about it.
You don’t need to replenish or maintain the water supply.
Self-monitoring will detect any system faults internally or externally.
Avoid using any more environmentally-destructive cleaning materials that make hard water less effective.
Drinkable water that does not change the chemical makeup of the water.
Relatively affordable solution.
All the benefits associated with softening water and being gentler on the skin.
We require less detergent
Reduce Heating Costs. Scale reduces the need to use fuel to drive the system.
Installation is simple and straightforward. Just attach the cable to the standard power outlet.
It is better to avoid having to replace pipework and boilers, storage tanks or radiators, pipes, washers, etc., too soon. Scale buildup.
