Limescale and Calgon

Limescale and Calgon

There are few facts in life that we can be certain on. There is always conflicting “evidence” to weigh up. Today I would like to talk about two facts:

 

1. Limescale costs you money every time you heat water

2. Calgon costs you money every time you use the washing machine!

Why does it cost more to heat water through limescale?

Limescale effectively insulates the heating element from heating the water. The element then compensates by heating up even more. This causes the heat exchanger to fail due to over heating

How much more does it cost to heat water through limescale?

This table is a good summary, those who would like an in-depth scientific report, please email me.

 

How much does Calgon cost?

This is much easier to calculate. If you use the washing machine 4 times a week, calgon will cost you £58.24 per year, £291.20 every 5 years and £582.40 every 10 years.

 

If you use the washing machine 6 times a week, calgon will costs you £87.36 per year, £436.80 every 5 years and £873.60 every 10 years.

 

This is based on buying a large 45 pack of Calgon @ £10.25.

HOW MUCH?!

But there an alternative to calgon

Aquabion introduces the new Mini Aquabion for washing machines. These cost the same as using Calgon for 1-2 years and last for 5 years, protecting the washing machine as well reducing the use of detergents. They can be installed in 10 mins and just screw on between the hose and valve. There is no better alternative to calgon.

 

 

Of course, far greater saving can be made if a whole house device is installed, as every boiler, shower, washing machine etc will be protected.

 

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

Since we have had this product fitted our water has been great for our skin, great for our dishwasher and washing machines as we notice our clothes feel fresher.  I would recommend this product to my friends and further suggest that this product will save you money in the long term as it will reduce issues with pipe clogging up. All new homes being built in a hard water area should have this product fitted as a mandatory instruction for all builders
