Water Softener Installation in Kent
The hardness of water depends on the amount of naturally occuring minerals such as magnesium and calcium. The South East of England is known for being an area of the country, in which there is “hard to very hard water”.
As hard water is heated up in appliances, cylinders, kettles, etc, the Calcium and Magnesium separate out and form a crust on surfaces they come into contact with. This is what we know as limescale. Limescale can cause damage and expense in your home.
Here are some problems caused by limescale build up:
- Limescale build-up in heating systems can cause a loss in heating efficiency, and wasting energy.
- Showers, washing machines and immersion heaters become damaged and inefficient.
- Limescale builds up on objects such as taps, shower screens, shower heads, drinking glasses and other fittings
- Over time this is unsightly and makes cleaning extremely difficult.
- Hard water tends to aggravate skin conditions such as eczema.
Benefits of having a water softener fitted
- Save money on cleaning products,
- Increase the life of appliances – washing machine, dishwasher, etc…
- Softer feeling and brighter looking clothes,towels,etc…
- Great for skin conditions such as eczema
- Softer hair and skin
- Save money on your energy bills.
By having a water softener fitted you can revert the hard water back to the natural composition of soft water, and remove the substances that cause limescale and the damage throughout your home.

There are many different water softeners available from electric to non electric products. We would advise you have a non electric softener installed, as it will reduce your running costs even further! If however, you already have an electric water softener that is faulty or damaged, then in this case we would offer to replace for a similar product.
