Use an Electronic Water Decapper to Get the Best Out of Your Water

Hard water* is a problem that affects more than 60% of Britain.

What’s hard water? helpful hints.

Water that contains high levels of dissolved minerals (especially calcium and magnesium) is called “hard water”. Although it is not harmful to your health, it can lead to a host of other problems.

The problems associated with living in hard water areas include:

The performance of soap, shampoo, and detergents can be affected by hard water. They produce less lather, which means that more soap/detergent/ shampoo is needed. This can be harmful for the environment.

Your hair may appear dull.

Skin feels dry.

Clothes can be more difficult to wash.

Fabrics can feel roughened by scum.

Scale and soap combine to make scum. This clings onto tiles, taps, basins, and baths making it more difficult and time-consuming to clean.

Hidden costs

Heat treated water can cause scale deposits at 1.5mm per annum. Boilers and tanks can lose their capacity, and pipes may become narrower. According to government statistics, 6mm of scale can decrease the efficiency of your heating system’s by as much as 38%. This has obvious environmental and cost implications. A domestic boiler replacement could cost upwards of PS1,000.

Limescale builds up in domestic appliances that heat water, such as your washing machine, dishwasher and iron. This reduces their performance and life expectancy. This can have a negative impact on your home’s running costs.

Additional costs for fabric softeners, limescale removers and detergents can add up to PS200 per annum. If you live in hard water areas, your washing machine could require up to five times the soap and as much detergent.

How to minimize the negative effects of hard water

Make sure to use the right soaps and detergents

For your washing machine, dishwasher, and boiler, set the temperature lower.

To soften water, install an electronic descaler.

An electronic water descaler offers many benefits

Reduce substantial “scum” marks in sinks, baths and kettles.

Water softening can be done chemical-free.

There are no moving parts. Just fit and forget.

There is no need to refill or maintain your tank.

Self-monitoring will identify any system faults, internal or external.

Do not use more environmentally harmful cleaning products that are less effective in hardwater.

Is safe to drink, and does not alter the chemical composition of water.

Low cost solution.

Softer water, skin-kinder, etc. are just a few of the many benefits.

Use Less detergent

Lower Heating costs. Reduce the amount of fuel you use to drive your system, as the flow is reduced by scale.

Easy to install, no complicated installation. Simply attach and plug into a standard power outlet.

Do not rush to replace pipes, boilers or storage tanks. Scale buildup.
