There are Bronze and Silver accreditations available online. Bronze means you have passed the initial online training and silver means you have also sent a picture of an installation you have done.

Gold accreditation can be achieved by attending an Aquabion training event.

Installation

Earthing

Earthing is essential for the functioning of the unit. Lots of salespeople try to mislead installers that their product is the same as AQUABION but does not need earthing. This can’t be true. If their unit was working on the Galvanic principle then they would need to earth the pipework as well. The galvanic principle means that a small amount of electricity is created as the small amount of Zinc is released. If there is no electricity, then there is no Zinc being released.

Electrolytic and Galvanic water conditioners. What’s the difference:

Electrolytic = electrical energy into chemical energy.

Galvanic = chemical energy into electrical energy.

Positioning

To achieve the best results, the positioning of the AQUABION is important. Best practice requires a 5m run of pipework between AQUABION and the first critical appliance (ie boiler). This is because Zinc and Calcium keep reacting in the pipework for up to 10m after treated water has passed through the unit.

Plastic pipework

AQUABION can be installed inline with plastic pipework but the unit must still be bonded to metallic pipework. Modification should be made to include metallic pipework, the length of the unit, at both ends so bonding can be achieved.

Secondary returns (domestic hot water returns)

You must have a second unit installed after the pump. This is because a small amount of the treated water may be broken apart in the pump.

Sizing

Selecting the correct size AQUABION for your application is critical. Oversizing could have an effect on the patented self cleaning technology inside the unit, which can result in reduction of overall performance. AQUABIONs unique design patent keeps the Zinc anode clean and free from fouling, which has always been the achilles heel for electrolytic inline scale reducers. Once the Zinc inside has fouled, the unit will no longer perform. An unfortunate fact is there is a history of oversizing large houses and commercial buildings.

This is why Aquabion spends so much time ensuring the correct size units are correctly specified in commercial applications. In commercial buildings, flow rates should always be considered and not only the diameter size of the pipework. If in doubt, we recommend using a non invasive flow meter to monitor both normal flow rates and flow rates at peak time.

Various properties can be sized in different ways. For example, a commercial building such as a sports club or gym would need to be sized to suit every shower head being used at the same time. If we size other buildings in the same way, it would result in oversizing which can lead to many problems, such as a reduction in performance and unnecessary expense. AQUABION can only be made liable for oversizing if AQUABION has been involved with sizing the application or the rules that are followed.

If in doubt, contact AQUABION, who will be more than happy to advise.

It should go without saying, if you have read the above we don’t recommend sizing the unit based on the size of the incoming main supply.

Sizing houses

If a domestic property uses one shower head at a time then the S15 is the best unit for this application. This would allow for someone to flush a toilet and turn on taps (other than a bath tap) at the same time, with minimal pressure loss.

If the property has 2-5 shower heads which are being used at the same time then the S20 is the best unit unless you are on a 15mm supply with great water pressure, in this case the S15 could be considered.

Please remember with Aquabion smaller is better. In Denmark 100’s of houses have a D10 (10mm Aquabion) on the mains to their house and there are no complaints regarding loss of pressure.

For large 6+ bathroom properties, please contact us so we can help size the Aquabion. This will often involve reducing the mains, but we promise the users will not see any negative effects and have never had any complaints when we have recommended this.

Please take a look at the trade section on our website for further information, tips and advice.

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.

Mr Geist and Mr Blunck of Bosch

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.

Graham Martin

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

Julian Humphreys
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
