What is hard water?

Hard water is a type of mineral water, this means that there are dissolved minerals in the water. The particular minerals in question are Calcium and Magnesium.

 

The good news is that these minerals are good for you!

 

The bad news is that they do make cleaning much harder, heating water costs a lot more (50% more in bad cases) and appliances break down much more.

 

The level of hardness is not always the same. In San Diego, the hardness of their water increased when they sourced more water from the Colorado River. To further complicate matters, the river’s hardness changed from season to season and even year to year. Although residents found this to be a nuisance the water was just returning to the levels they were at a few years earlier.

 

However, soft water does have its own disadvantages; it is expensive to produce soft water from hard water (this is done with salt-based water softeners). Soft water- whether naturally or artificially, can cause pinhole leaks, and it has no health benefits (it can harm your health if you drink artificially softened water).

 

There are lots of solutions out there to help with the disadvantages of hard water. However, some have been proven not to work, most have very mixed reviews and hardly any salt-free solutions have lab test reports for you to read. Check out our reports located in the menu bar above.

 

 

 

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
