Hard water is water that has a high mineral content made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates.
Water hardness becomes a problem when the build up (limescale) affects your heating systems, washing machines, dishwashers and kettles, meaning your household equipment working less efficiently and in need of costly repairs or replacement.
Hard water, limescale, can also be unsightly within your home, leaving your kitchen taps, sinks, draining boards and work surfaces with a rough scale build-up.
Within your bathrooms, your shower screens look streaky and marked, your baths and wash basins feel rough and shower heads are left running with a slow trickle.
By installing a water softener in your home all these issues can be resolved and in time, saving you money, as well as helping you do your bit for the environment, due to the need for less cleaning products as soft water produces more of a lather and therefore less soap and / or detergent is needed.
