The old fashioned way of dealing with the problems of hard water, has had another blow. A ban on using salt in water softeners salt!!!
The old fashioned machines (which normally take up a kitchen cupboard), needs regular bags of salt. So if the proposed ban on flushing salt down the drains in Hamburg, is rolled out, this method of softening is going to become history.
Residents will have to use potassium chloride in their water softener. This is an even more expensive way of dealing with hard water (an extra £118 – £156 every single year to their regular salt bill).
This extra cost just adds to an already expensive method of dealing with hard water. Thankfully our units don’t use any salt, and actually saves you money. Please compare our prices or download our independent lab reports.
See article for details on the ban.
