What does hard water mean?
“Hard water” is water with a high level of dissolved minerals. It does not pose any health risks, but it can lead to other problems.
Living in a hardwater area can cause problems. Extra resources!
Hard water can impact soap, shampoo and detergent performance. They produce less soap/detergent/ shampoo which causes them to perform poorly. This is very harmful for 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 cleaning much more difficult.
The hard water that is heated can build up scale 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 as high as 38%. This has obvious costs and impacts on the environment. To replace an average domestic boiler, it could cost over PS1,000.
Limescale, which is a buildup of limescale, reduces the performance and longevity of domestic appliances that heat hot water such as your dishwasher, washing machine and iron. This can impact your home’s operating costs.
Extra costs such as limescale removers or fabric softeners can amount to over PS200 annually. If you live with hard water, your washing machine may require five times more soap or up to 30% more detergent.
How to minimize the adverse effects of hardwater
Make sure you use the right soaps.
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
Substantial reduction of “scum marks” on sinks baths and kettles.
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 harsh cleaning chemicals that make hard water less effective.
Drinkable water that does not change the chemical makeup of the water.
All the benefits associated with softened water and skin that are kinder to your 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 pipe-work and boilers, storage tanks or radiators, as well as pipes, boilers, storage tank, radiators, heating elements, baths, and washing machines. Scale build-up.
