In our homes we increasingly find the formation of scale on sinks, showers, mixers, boilers, etc …
The incrustations are mainly due to the precipitation of the hardness salts that are deposited on the walls in a more or less hard and coherent form. They cause a reduction in the effectiveness of the system, the reduced heat exchange, the occlusion of pipes and, often, are responsible for triggering corrosive phenomena. They are detrimental to the proper functioning of washing machines and dishwashers and, by encrusting the coils, increase energy consumption. Depending on the hardness of the water, the damages of the encrustation can be felt in a few months or a few years, but they are inevitable when the water is not treated.
New technologies for energy saving, condensing boilers, radiant panel heating, solar systems, etc. they are increasingly sensitive to the quality of water, so that failure to treat leads to early losses in performance, thus disappointing expectations; furthermore it could lead to the invalidation of the guarantee of the equipment itself. These losses of yield over reduce the life of the hydraulic system and the equipment connected to it, considerably increasing the ENERGY CONSUMPTION. The scale in fact isolates the heat source from the water and causes a waste of fuel which increases with the increase in scale.
To overcome these problems we recommend installing a water softener.
