Water Treatment

Hard water can cause major issues in a range of equipment from boilers to laundry machines.

Why Soften?

The majority of water in the UK comes from groundwater sources. Rain water permeates layers of soil, clay, sand and rock and in the process picks up a number of minerals along the way.

Hardness is defined by the content of calcium and magnesium that is found in water. The harder the water the more calcium and magnesium it contains. Although it is not toxic, hardness can cause a number of problems.

Hard water leaves traces of calcium and magnesium on glassware, surfaces, within pipework and appliances.

Which causes:

  • Shorter equipment life span
  • Higher energy costs
  • Reduced flow rates
  • Under-performing appliances


Excess deposits create a drop in efficiency, increased chemical cleaning costs and maintenance schedules and in the worse cases equipment failure.
