Water Softener Benefits 

Water Softeners: Saving You Money 

Softened water saves you time and money studies by the British Water Quality Group show that water softening can save a 4-person household an 
average of £200 per year.
Hard water contains dissolved lime, chalk and other minerals and quickly causes scale to form on all surfaces which come into contact with it, from  sinks and toilets to shower heads and taps. The unseen and potentially more costly examples of hard water are clogged pipes and failure of central heating elements/pumps. British Water's Quality Group estimate that just 1.5mm of scale reduces the efficiency of your boiler by almost 10%.

In addition, you will use less detergents, soaps, and other cleaning chemicals as the water will lather using smaller quantities. Softened water will eliminate the build-up of limescale in your pipes and on heating elements found in dishwashers and washing machines, leading to fewer expensive engineer call-outs and spare parts.

Once installed the benefits of your water softener system will be immediate.

  • Your shampoo will lather up really easily when washing your hair and will leave your hair feeling and looking fabulous

  • Softened water can leave your skin feeling, smooth glowing and healthy

  • No more limecale buildup in pipes, boiler and appliances, they will live longer, saving you money.
