“Washing machines last longer with calgon,” this statement is probably quite true. However, your washing powder does give your machine some limited protection. It is however, very important not to use too much powder as this can cause your machine to breakdown prematurely. If you do choose to use calgon, do work out how much it will cost you over 5-6 years. You might be surprised that it will cost about the same as a quality washing machine, i.e. Miele.
It is important that your dishwasher is setup correctly for your hard water levels. First you must find out how hard your water is, simply contact your water company and ask them. The manual will tell you how to change your dishwasher settings, to the correct level. Our dishwasher aquabion has been tested by calgon.
Sinks, basins, sanitary ware
Regular cleaning is all that should be required. Your cleaning chemical need to be formulated for hard water areas, e-cloths are also a great help (free e-cloths are being given away with orders of aquabions at the time of writing). If you have an aquabion all you need is an e-cloth and detergent.If limescale has got out of hand, then a more powerful cleaner will be needed. You must be aware that the basin waste can lose it’s chrome coating if you use too powerful a product; so make sure you read the label.
