The benefits of using a water conditioner

The benefits of using a water conditioner

James Ridout, UK Director at Aquabion® UK Ltd reviews the problems with limescale and discusses the benefits of using a water conditioner system.

 

The problem with limescale

Much of Great Britain is made up of limestone and chalk, with more than 60% of homes in the UK being supplied with hard water. Hard water is water that contains a high concentration of the dissolved minerals calcium and magnesium. Whilst there are benefits to hard water, when it evaporates, it leaves behind calcium carbonate deposits. Otherwise known as limescale, these deposits stick to any surface and can accumulate quickly, causing endless household and plumbing problems.
