Do you have stains on your dark coloured sink?

Hard water scale, being of chalk and limestone, is light in colour, and it forms an unattractive layer on sinks, drainers and taps from hard water use.

It is most unattractive on dark sinks / drainers and we are pleased to say changing to softened water dissolves away all the deposits that have formed permanently, taking your sink back to completely scale free.

If not, the scale stays and builds up, after a short while the white coloured scale takes on the tea and coffee colours that pass over it during washing up! Ending up looking even less and less attractive.

Softened water keeps your sink looking like the day it was fitted, and is much more hygienic as scale is porous and potentially creates a breeding ground for bacteria, and potentially the same hygiene hazard for bathroom shower heads, when they scale up.

Softened water completely resolves this problem & improves so much more in your home.

How does limescale affect boilers?

Your boiler’s life span and the efficiency are greatly reduced by hard water scale build-up.

Boiler life is reduced because the build-up of scale is inside the heat exchanger, this causes the metal heat exchanger to overheat as the flow of water through it is reduced by scale. This overheating damages the boiler and reduces its life, often referred to as ‘Kettling’.

Your boiler’s efficiency relies on the heat from the gas, oil fuel or electricity passing through the heat exchanger and into the water. However, as a layer of hard water scale forms inside, it is an insulator and passes less and less through to the water as the scale thickness increases, up to half a millimetre per year is not an un-common build-up.

By fitting a water softening system to an existing boiler, it gently dissolves away all of the scale build-up and takes the boiler back to full efficiency.
