Water softeners for the treatment of hard water and limescale.

Signs of the problem – Clogged pipes or limescale build up on taps, scale in the bottom of kettles, water spots on glassware or after washing vehicles.

Solution. Install a water softener. The correct type of water softener will need to be specified based on the feed water quality, water flow rates and water demand. A regenerating filter vessel would be used. A simplex water softener will require a shutdown period to regenerate (usually during the night when there is no demand), a duplex system allows for a continuous supply of conditioned water 24 hours a day. A water softener regenerates on a brine solution (sodium chloride).
