What are the consequences of hard water?
The presence of too much limestone is responsible for the hardness of tap water. As a result of hard water, limescale will form on all pipes and objects that come in contact with the water, which can lead to a number of problems.
Limited water pressure
When the water level drops, there are already particularly large limescale deposits. Most people only then identify the presence of the problem with hard water
Shortens the life of electrical appliances
Limestone deposits cause scale to form, both along the water path (water pipes and individual elements) and on electrical appliances. Calculus shortens the life of electrical appliances, as it is able to clog key water supply arteries, disrupt the efficient operation of heating elements and more. This may lead to the need for early repairs of appliances, which would cost additional costs for one household.
Increases electricity consumption and consumables
It is estimated that a 2 mm thick scale on the heating elements can increase energy consumption by up to 30%. Accordingly, a thicker layer of overlays is able to increase electrical consumption by up to 50%.
As for electricity, increased consumption is observed in the use of detergents and / or those used to soften water – up to about 30-50% more.
Chemical descaling is harmful to health and the environment
Most descaling methods chemically extract limestone from water. The use of such chemicals is harmful to health and the environment and is therefore not recommended for use in drinking water systems. On the other hand, the minerals of the calcareous deposits in the water are important for the health of humans, animals and plants.
Why do SW1000 and SW2000 offer an effective solution?
In order to prevent the formation of scale without eliminating the main beneficial properties of water, it is necessary to make a structural change in the minerals. The unique water treatment offered by the SW1000 and SW2000 does just that – it removes the limescale responsible for scale formation by changing the crystal structure.
The many tests performed with the SW1000 and SW2000 prove that these appliances offer environmentally friendly and useful solutions for every household.
