Why limescale is such a problem?

We are daily reminded that we are using too much energy. We should switch appliances off when not in use. We should increase the insulation in our homes, fit double glazing and so on.

 

Water softeners however as long as they are proven to work and don’t use a lot of resources are a very green way of reducing our carbon footprint.

Why?

There are three areas where limescale increases your carbon footprint.

 

1. Increase in energy costs. Just 1.6mm of limescale in hot water heating systems causes 12% increase in energy costs. This is due to the insulation effect of limescale

 

2. Life span of showers, washing machines, immersion heaters etc are reduced. The reason these appliances fail prematurely is linked to the increase in energy costs. The elements are insulated by the limescale, so they are on longer and get hotter. In some parts of the UK electric showers need replacing or repairing every year, solely down to limescale!

 

 

3. The amount of chemicals needed to clean clothes, the house and even you is doubled in hard water areas. This may seam like a purely cost saving point to make, however, chemical manufacture uses masses of resources. For some chemicals, 17 litres of waste chemicals are generated for every 1 litre of useable chemical.

Costs

British Water in fact sheet 1, informs the reader that the most costly course of action, is the path of no action. So if you need to save some money in this recession, you need a high quality solution, which is proven and guaranteed to work.

 

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
