Reducing Operational Costs

The majority of commercial businesses are by now fully aware of the issues that can be caused by the prolonged use of hard water. Clogged pipes, premature failure of equipment that utilises hard water, damage to boilers etc. Without the installation of a water softener the resulting damage to equipment from hard water can be catastrophic.

The costs of hard water

As well is the damage to equipment. Energy costs associated with hard water can also play a part, boilers will have to work harder in order to reach maximum efficiency if clogged pipework is obstructing the water flow.The problem with using hard water that hasn’t been treated in some way is that hard water contains dissolved rock particles, the prolonged use of water containing these particles results in limescale build up that hinders your operational equipment to function incorrectly which in turn leads to higher heating costs and ultimately equipment breakdown or even complete failure.

Hard Savings with Soft Water

With the installation of a water softener the effects of hard water are eliminated. Water softeners dramatically reduce the scale build up within pipework and in doing so aid operation.

Other benefits of Water Softeners
