Is Limescale Bad For Your Health?
It’s a question we are often asked.: Is limescale bad for your health? There is some debate as to whether limescale is actually harmful to humans. The World Health Organisation has reviewed the evidence and came to the conclusion that the evidence was inadequate.
Can Drinking Hard Water be Bad For Your Health?
The opposite! Lime appears to be great for you! Data shows there are fewer heart conditions in hard water areas than in soft water areas. There are no health problems associated with drinking hard water.
Can Drinking SOFT Water be Bad For Your Health?
Yes because there is more chance of metals and leaching into the water stream.
Can Drinking SOFTenED Water be Bad For Your Health?
This is water that has been artificially softened by a water softener. This can add biology as well as adding the extra sodium into the water. This is how water softeners work. They are really ion exchangers! They exchange the lime for sodium. The problem is the salty water is stored at room temperature so can be a great breeding ground for all sorts of biology. This is then pumped through the resin and down the drain leaving the sodium behind and potentially some of the biology.
How Can I Permanently FIx Limescale Problems Associated With Hard Water?
Installing a water conditioner will sort this issue for you, stopping limescale forming from your water through conditioning rather than softening. Conditioners are great as they allow you to retain the health benefits of some of the minerals associated with hard water. Softeners strip the water of these elements.
An Aquabion® water conditioner is a patented, German designed and engineered unit that uses zinc sacrificial anodes to release zinc ions into the water. This reacts with the calcium in the water to form aragonite – a new type of non-adhering lime – essentially stopping it from sticking and allowing it get washed away with the rest of the water. No one else can use Aquabion’s patented technology.
