What are the Benefits of Softened Water?

► Cost savings in service, maintenance and replacements of showers, heaters, etc

► Improved efficiency of hot water and heating systems - just 1.6mm of limescale build-up in heating systems will cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency.

► Save some 50% of washing powder and toilet soap consumption and similarly cut the use of shampoos, conditioners and cleaning products.

► Helps certain dry skin conditions such as eczema.

► Saves time - independent studies have confirmed that considerable cleaning time is saved with softened water.

► Removes existing scale deposits in  hot water and heating systems as  well as scale around taps and stains  in baths and basins.

► Softened water has a clean, silky feeling. It makes bath time a luxury without the need for oils or bubble bath liquids.

► Makes hair soft and easy to manage.

► No scum - softened water rinses completely away without leaving scum, even after shaving.

► Makes laundry brighter and glasses and dishes sparkle and shine.

► Makes washing the car easier, reducing streaking and spotting.

► Water softeners are installed in nearly all car washes, commercial laundries and kitchens in hard water areas.

► It is estimated that an ion-exchange water softener could save over £200 per year for an average four person household.
