Little Plumber water softener treatment units are guaranteed to remove and prevent limescale and make your water feel softer. They will continue to soften the water continuously without requiring any additives once connected to the mains (or via our battery unit the LP SOLO)
With the ever increasing cost of energy it is essential to have a really efficient plumbing system. When hard water becomes limescale it forms a thick layer of chalk on the heat exchangers in your water heating system which effectively acts as a thermal insulator. This STOPS the heat generator from heating efficiently so requiring more and more energy to heat the same amount of water. This is a complete waste of energy which increases your energy costs.
In addition the problems caused by hard water such as dry skin and eczema, poor use of soap and detergents are all too apparent. The old salt system of water softeners (ion exchange) is cumbersome and expensive and requires costly plumbing along with a need for a dedicated pipe for a supply of untreated cold water to your drinking tap. (which you will almost certainly use to fill your kettle, thus retaining the limescale problem in all boiled water!) It is not advisable to drink water treated by a salt water softener as it is bad for you plus the fact that it is not at all palatable!. In addition the extra water wasted down your drain every time the salt unit regenerates will add to your water bill and this is for water you havenít even used.
Modern electronic water softener units such as the Little Plumber range require no chemicals or maintenance and can be fitted without plumbing and is an easy DIY installation for most people. The units deliver softer water as well as removing and preventing limescale at a fraction of the cost of the older style salt water softener systems which many people now regard as obsolete.
With water treated by a Little Plumber water softener unit you have drinking water all round your property and available from every tap. As Calcium is good for you and helps developing childrenís bones and teeth this is an additional bonus.
