Benefits of softened water

Hard Water produces limescale which is costly and damaging to your home and your family. Softened water will not only prevent the build up of limescale but it will also gradually eradicate existing limescale within your home. Making it cleaner and more efficient, saving you money

Hard vs soft water – what’s the difference?

Many people have struggled with hard water for years without realising that there is a solution. We regularly have new customers tell us that they wish that they had installed a softener years ago.

People spend more time and money to reduce limescale in their homes. Repairing and replacing heating systems and appliances without realising that they could’ve prevented the damage. Pouring detergents down drains  in an effort to create a lather, irritating their skin in the process.

Soft water can change this. It can protect homes, free up time spent cleaning and maintaining, reducing energy and shopping bills.

Improve condition of skin and hair

What if the water you use everyday could look after your skin without the need for products?

If you don’t get a lovely lather with shower gel and soaps, it’s because the minerals in hard water don’t mix as well with the products you use. You will end up using more to compensate. As well as being costly, this can irritate skin further, especially if you suffer from eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis.

The residue left behind by the minerals can cause irritation, clog pores and contribute to itchy, dry skin. This can be especially problematic for those with sensitive skin.

The introduction of softened water can improve these conditions, as it is doesn’t contain as many minerals. You will notice that because products lather better and rinse off easier, your skin will feel silky smooth.

Reduction in limescale

Limescale restricts water flow in pipes and heating systems, creating build up unseen within the pipework around your home. This means that your boiler needs to heat through the limescale before it can heat anything else. Only 1.5mm of limescale reduces the efficiency of your boiler by almost 10%. Showers and taps will clog with limescale causing damage and reducing water flow.

A water softener will reduce and eventually clear your pipes of scale by dissolving it, making them more efficient and reducing the energy required to heat them.

Save time and money

Hard water minerals are left as a deposit whenever hard water is heated or left to evaporate. In your kitchen, when hard water boils, it creates limescale in your kettle or boiling water system.  It also stains and damages taps and leaves ‘spotting’ on sinks and shower screens this can often result in permanent pitting and damage. Limescale also builds up on heating elements and components in appliances often making them inefficient or causing breakdowns

Installing a water softener will reduce your cleaning time on taps, sinks and shower screens.  Once you have soft water, cleaning does not require as much effort or use of cleaning materials. Soft water will protect your appliances from damage, reduce maintenance bills and prolong their lifespan.

You can reduce your detergent for cleaning and in your appliances, including washing machines and dishwashers.  Premium and costly  products won’t be needed to get desired results – all resulting in cost savings and being kinder to the environment.
