Water is an important part of our lives, day and night. BWT products that optimally treat your water will allow you to sit back with a clear conscience and trust in the best water quality and hygiene for you and your family.
Many of us know the effects of hard water only too well: It leaves unsightly stains on fixtures and fittings in the kitchen and bathroom leaving shiny surfaces dull. It accumulates in household appliances, such as kettles or washing machines and unseen in pipes and central heating boilers.
With BWT’s technology you can choose to control the build-up of scale or remove it all together. Water conditioners work by altering the way the hardness minerals behave when the water is heated to prevent hard scale deposits forming. Whereas water softening removes those minerals from the water altogether enabling you to enjoy softened water throughout your home.
Softened water produces no limescale, is kind to your hair, skin and clothes as it allows soaps and shampoos to lather and rinse away more easily. With the need for less soap, detergents and specialist cleaners it’s kinder to your pocket and the environment. The BWT Perla Silk and WS range of water softeners work using the ion exchange principle, removing the magnesium and calcium ions that make the water hard and replacing them with sodium ions.
Water conditioners use a range of technologies to prevent limescale settling in pipes, appliances and boilers. In essence they work by propagating tiny seed crystals from part of the calcium dissolved in the water, which in turn bind the remaining calcium together, these large crystals are then carried through the system without causing hard scale deposits.
These are often an ideal solution for anyone who wants to leave valuable minerals in drinking water but still enjoy safe limescale protection.
We would be happy to help you find the BWT water softener that best suits your needs. Contact our BWT experts for advice.
