Reduce Your Limescale with one of this Handy Filters
Limescale deposits can cause blockages in pipework, reducing system efficiency. This forces the boiler to work harder to achieve temperature and can lead to fluctuating heat flows, cold spots in radiators and the premature failure of vital system components ultimately costing you more.
Unlike water softeners, which exchange the calcium and magnesium of scale with sodium (salt), limescale reducers safely modify the water itself so that scale minerals travel through the system without stopping and forming scale on your appliances.
Unlike other methods of regulating scale build up, limescale reducers offer all of the following benefits:
Level of protection - can be installed to protect an entire property or a single appliance, as required.
Life of the device - approximately 10 years.
No maintenance required after installation.
No pollutants released into the system.
Low initial and ongoing costs.
There are two main types of scale reducer on the market, magnetic and electrolytic. Magnetic scale reducers prevent the build-up of scale using magnetic principles, acting as a water conditioner. These devices offer single appliance protection and are ideal for shower heads and kettles, and ensure that should any scale reform – it is far easier to remove.
Electrolytic scale reducers offer whole house protection by altering the structure of the limescale that forms, preventing it from strongly adhering to the pipework and key components of the heating system.
Magnetic and electrolytic scale reducers should be installed when appropriate as part of a comprehensive protection strategy to help extend the life cycle of the boiler and reduce the hostile effects of hard water on a central heating system’s efficiency.
The most important benefit from a cost perspective is that using any brand of scale inhibitor including Liff, Wrappa, or Aqua Dial will require no maintenance, and your household bills will be reduced, as your appliances will receive a more effective supply. Also note, that this should be used in conjunction with other limescale reducing treatments such as a water softener for maximum results.
When deciding on whether this is the appropriate plan of action for your home, please ask for advice from one of our engineers.
