Our range of softeners is designed to address various water quality issues, such as hardness, mineral content, and impurities, to provide you with a reliable and consistent supply of clean, soft water. 

What is Hard Water?

When it comes to water types, all water can be categorised into one of two categories; hard water and soft water. Water softeners are devices or systems designed to reduce the hardness of water by removing certain materials.

Soft water: water that is free from dissolved salts with a low mineral content, such as calcium, iron, or magnesium. 

Hard water: water that has a high mineral content and is formed when water percolates through deposits of limestone, chalk, or gypsum, which are largely made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates, bicarbonates, and sulphates. 
What is important to note here is that hard water contains high levels of dissolved minerals, primarily calcium and magnesium. If left untreated, these minerals can cause various issues in both domestic and commercial settings. Water softeners work by removing or reducing these minerals to make the water soft. 

The Benefits of Installing a Water Softener

The solution to these issues lies in water softeners, and the benefits of installing one are substantial: 

Reduction in Energy Costs: Water softeners maintain the efficiency of water heating appliances, resulting in lower energy bills. Pumps and other appliances also benefit from the reduced workload. 

Selective Mineral Removal: Water softeners target the minerals that cause hardness while leaving beneficial minerals for the human body untouched. 

Cost Savings: Installing water softeners reduces maintenance and repair costs associated with limescale buildup in equipment, including water heaters, pumps, washing machines, and showerheads. These softeners offer 'whole house' protection against limescale. 

Reduced Product Usage: With softened water, you'll need less soap, detergent, shampoo, and cleaning products. This leads to cost savings and environmental benefits. 

Easier Cleaning: Softened water makes cleaning surfaces, shower cubicles, and glassware a breeze. You'll notice a spot-free rinse, enhancing the overall cleanliness of your building. 

Reduced Water Usage: Softened water lathers more easily, requiring less water for cleaning tasks. This contributes to water conservation efforts. 

Extended Appliance Lifespan: The primary role of water softeners is to increase the lifespan of water-related systems, which are often expensive to repair or replace. By preventing limescale buildup, they protect your investments and keep them running smoothly.
