Water conditioning aims to address three major issues that are present in most water sources lime scale, bacteria, and algae. These problems can cause a whole host of issues in water systems, including on the insides of pipes, on heat exchangers, on fixtures, and more. Water conditioners and water softeners are both used to address the common problem of water hardness. Hard water is water that is rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, and silica.
These minerals can cause serious problems for heat-exchange surfaces, pipes and water fixtures throughout your home and business. Over time, pipes could become completely clogged by scale buildup. When limescale builds up on a heating element, it insulates it and prevents it from doing its job efficiently. Hard water can cause ongoing, everyday problems, too. It’s no wonder that homeowners and businesses alike want to find a way to combat this issue.
