Limescale and Hard Water Problems in the Home

Why do we need water softeners ?

You will know that your home is suffering from the effects of limescale build up from unsightly deposits on basins, taps and shower screens. These all require constant, time consuming effort to remove. But are you aware that it can also cause much more serious problems in places that you can’t see ?
In fact, limescale deposits can damage your central heating system and appliances, such as washing machines and dishwashers. Just look inside your kettle to see the scale built up around the element.

The installation of a water softener will eliminate these problems. The scale clogging up your boiler, appliances & pipes will disperse over time, and no new scale will develop. The result is that this will hugely increase their lifespan and efficiency.


A Water Softeners’ amazing benefits include:

  • Shinier home – Eliminate ugly limescale deposits on baths, sinks & shower enclosures. Keep your bathroom looking pristine.
  • Cheaper bills – Softened water reduces bills by increasing your boilers efficiency. Lower your energy bills by at least 10%
  • Softer skin and hair – Helps remove soap residue, and doesn’t leave mineral deposits. Leaving you with beautifully soft skin and hair.
  • Better tasting tea – Softened water removes the scum which is formed on top of your tea, and makes it taste better.
  • Less time cleaning – Softened water doesn’t leave limescale residue. You will spend less time cleaning around your home.
  • Spend less on products – Use less product but get more lather. Washing powder, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap & cleaning products all go much further
