Eczema

This can be much worse in hard water. There is a study running at the moment to try and access if there is a benefit to using a water softener or not. One irritant of eczema is chemical (particularly perfume), my son’s eczema is very sensitive to this. We found it was best to make sure the washing machine used extra water in the rinse cycles, and to use non perfumed powder. Since installing an aquabion we reduced the amount of powder we used, which of course means there is less chemicals to get rid of in the first place!

Shower screen

Shower screens are something you really need to keep on top of. Otherwise it will take a lot of elbow grease to get it clear again. You could buy a new door from: www.showerguardglass.com but that is a bit drastic. Just make sure your cleaner has some sort of acid in it to dissolve the limescale, or you can buy a simple DIY screw on aquabion which will react with calcium (which causes limescale) so that it won’t react with the glass! Some very minor soft scale will form BUT it will wipe off without chemicals! Please note, you don’t need a dedicated shower aquabion if you have a household one, and that the shower aquabion’s don’t work very well if your shower has low flow rates.

Combination boilers

Only a plumber can descale your combination boiler, so what is needed is something to stop the scale building up. You can fit an effective water softener or water conditioner (aquabion), or combination boiler inhibitor like “combi care”, which must be replaced every year.

If you are thinking buying a new boiler you must think carefully about which boiler to get and ask your plumber about how hard water will effect your boiler. I would recommend you get a standard boiler and unvented tank. You might gulp at the price, but it will last for years, and give you a great showering experience.

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Your AQUABION – system has been operating successfully in our company for
some time in a humidifier of an air – conditioning system.

A truly remarkable piece of kit. Like everyone I was a bit sceptical at first but this unit has been fit and forget and so easy to install. We are a hard water area and limescale was an unsightly problem but is now a thing of the past. Unit starting its 5th year in use and no deterioration in performance noticed yet.

We have very hard water and lime scale is a problem for all appliances and particularly the shower. Had a refit recently and incorporated an Aquabion Mini …. only a month in but looks good. Will be adding one to washing machine soon … as we have been through 3 machines in 10 years
