Hard Water Areas

All throughout the U.K there are hard water areas and soft water areas. Around 60% of the U.K is classed as having hard to very hard water.

Hard water is water that has a higher mineral content than that of soft water. While hard water does cause limescale, there are also benefits. Hard water contains higher levels of magnesium and calcium which is good for our diet. Softened water on the other hand, contains added sodium, which isn’t necessarily good for our diet.

People will generally see the effects of hard water in their home due to scaled kettles, taps, pipes and potentially, the premature breakdown of boilers, washing machines and dishwashers.

We often class hard water areas as anything above 150ppm. However, after conducting a recent extensive survey, we have found that some water heaters still have scaling problems at around 120ppm.

But where are the hard water areas and what areas have naturally soft water? Knowing this may help you decide whether or not you should protect yourself and your home from the negative effects that hard water brings.

Take a look at our map below. It details the areas that have soft, moderately soft, slightly hard, moderately hard and very hard water areas.


With an Aquabion, it doesn’t soften your water so you can still reap the benefits of hard water. An Aquabion created a non-adhering limescale that simply wipes away very easily and therefore will not cause hard limescale to form and affect your appliances.

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
