The benefits of having soft water

No limescale in your home

Limescale is the hard scaly residue deposited by hard water. When you have unsoftened hard water coming into your home limescale will build up on all surfaces that get regularly wet.

 This will be evident as unsightly deposits on kitchen taps and sinks, as well as on bathroom taps, shower heads and on shower screens and baths.​Hard water also causes scaling where you can't see it in the mechanisms of your dishwasher and washing machine, and inside your water pipes and boiler.

Softened water prevents limescale buildup and gets rid of years worth of built up scale, making your home look more clean and attractive. Not having to constantly get rid of scale can also significantly ease cleaning duties around the home. And you will save money by not needing to replace prematurely worn out appliances, and by having a boiler that will work more efficiently and last longer.
