Limescale can really take its toll on your entire home. From white crusts around your taps, tiles and surfaces, to spots on your silverware and glassware. There is no way to permanently keep your home clean from limescale.

A water softener is the only permanent and long-term way to remove and prevent limescale in your home. That means no more blocked shower heads, cleaner and shinier silverware, spotless glassware, mirrors, tiles and even cleaner cars.

2. Longer Lasting Appliances

Hard water can damage electrical appliances in your home including your kettle, dishwasher and washing machine. Over time this can lead to your home appliances being damaged more quickly, having faults and ultimately needing to be replaced.

Water Softeners can remove existing scale from household appliances, pipes and surfaces such as your bathroom. They also prevent hard water from damaging appliances, meaning they'll last a lot longer. In fact, your heating system, hot water, washing machine and dish washer, will all run more efficiently. Overall, you'll find these appliances with have a 10% increase in life expectancy when using soft water.

3. An Effective Heating System

Limescale build up can block your pipes and boiler system. These blockages not only cause damage, but also require more energy to heat.

A water softener can protect your heating system and prevent boiler repairs and replacements. Meaning you'll save money on your energy bills.

4. No More Eczema or Dry Skin

Hard water has been proven in studies to really affect people who have sensitive skin. The harsh minerals are key cause of skin irritation, dry skin and eczema. In fact, hard water can make people with healthy skin develop eczema or dry skin and make eczema worse in sufferers. Research has shown that a water softener can treat and alleviate eczema and other skin conditions. This is essentially because a softener system removes hard impurities from your water.

5. Softer & Brighter Hair

Hard water minerals react negatively with shampoos and leave deposits on the scalp. This causes dry & dull hair and irritated skin on the scalp. Customers have reported that their itchy & dry scalp has disappeared completely since the installation of a water softener. Not only that, but soft water requires less soap and shampoo because of the rich lather. As a result, you'll have soft and shiny hair and a better showering experience.

6. Cleaner Clothes

Limescale and mineral impurities can damage your washing machine and clothes.  A common issue is stiff clothes that appear dirty, even after washing.

Softer water in your washing machine can leave your laundry cleaner and softer, without hard minerals trapped in the fabric. That means your whites stay whiter and fabric will last longer. You'll also find soft water requires 20% less washing powder and softener, meaning you'll save money.

7. Less Time Cleaning & Less Cleaning Products

With a softener system, cleaning has never been easier. No more soap scum, limescale or red/brown stains in your bathroom. You'll save time, money and effort.

8. Better Tasting & Healthier Water

If you suffer from bad tasting or smelling water - a softener can help deliver healthier and safer drinking water.

9. A Higher Water Pressure & Flow

Hard water on shower heads can scale up and cause a 75% drop-in water flow rate in less than 18 months. No more hard water minerals mean, you can prevent clogging up your shower head and taps. Not only that, but you'll protect your boiler, pipes and radiators.

10. Cost Savings & Environmentally Friendly

Studies by the British Water Quality Group show that water softening can save a 4-person household an average of £200 per year. As well as saving on washing powder or detergent you also save money on cleaning products and limescale removers.

The initial investment of a water softener will also extend the life of home appliances and lower your energy bills. Not only that, but you can prevent issues with your boiler, heating system, taps and water flow.
