Live a Life without Hard Water Tap

Its damaging effects are far more serious than you might think. How limescale in your water supply is impacting on both you and your home.

Limscale in kettleThe most obvious sign you live in a hard water area is in your kettle. Mineral deposits in the water are left all over the element and up the sides in the form of damaging and unsightly limescale. Most people just use a liquid descaler from time to time and think no more of it. But, if you fill your kettle with hard water that also means you’re running it through your hot water boiler, your washing machine, your dishwasher and your plumbing. Never mind your family are bathing in it too.

The result? Hard water is costing you and your home dearly. Your central heating is slowly becoming less and less efficient pushing your energy bills up. Appliances like your washing machine are wearing out quicker than they should and you’re using far more cleaning products and toiletries than you really need to. Not only that, but when you wash, bathe or shower in hard water the result is often dry, irritated skin and lifeless, dull hair.

The answer is a Kinetico water softener

Classic Water Softener Kinetico Premier CompactDesigned by the world’s leading manufacturer of water softeners, The Premier Compact’s twin-tank system prevents damaging limescale from ruining your home and ensures a constant supply of wonderfully soft water 24 hours a day.

You’ll notice the difference straight away

When you wash in wonderfully soft Kinetico water your skin will feel softer and your hair will look shinier. Not only that, you’ll find your tiles, shower screen and work surfaces are so much easier and quicker to clean too. Over the course of a year, you could save money every month on household cleaning products and toiletries.

It will save you time and money as well as look after your appliances

Limescale build up in any appliance that uses hard water can cause it to work less efficiently and to wear out quicker. The more expensive the appliance the costlier it is to repair and eventually renew. Soft Kinetico water causes none of these problems and therefore your appliances will work better and last longer.

Simple and easy to install

A Kinetico Water Softener is non-electric which means there’s no wiring or power required so installation is simple and running costs low. Compact and quiet, it can fit neatly in a corner under your kitchen sink. Extremely reliable, it also comes with a reassuring 10-year parts warranty.
