Keep Your Home Limescale Free!

With many areas of the UK subject to a hard water supply, that has damaging effects on your central heating system and home appliances, it is no wonder we all struggle with limescale throughout our homes.

Hard water occurs when there is a high presence of calcium, manganese, and magnesium ions within the water. For some areas of the UK, these levels are naturally high making the water extremely hard.

Limescale is caused by soluble calcium bicarbonate converting to insoluble calcium carbonate. In other words, it is the chalky substance that forms in crusts around your taps and kettle. Limescale occurs in places where water is either heated or left standing.

After time this white residue builds up across a number of your household appliances such as your washing machine, boiler system, dishwasher and will reduce their efficiency. This means your appliances are working harder and it reduces their lifespan, costing you time and money.

Limescale is difficult to remove even with a bit of elbow grease. Whilst you can descale your kettle it is a little harder to remove limescale from your heating system. The best option in most cases is to ensure you reduce the amount of limescale in your home by preventing it from getting in.

The Aquabion water conditioner is fitted to your heating system’s pipework and water flows through it as part of its everyday operation. As water passes through the Aquabion unit, sacrificial zinc ions are released into your system. In turn the zinc ions react with the calcium in the water and oxidise the zinc, turning it to aragonite. This both stops the build-up of limescale in your heating system and also helps to create a protective layer that preserves the integrity of your system further.
