Water purification – soft water throughout the house
Use a water-purification system to free your home from hard water, as limescale deposits damage your household appliances.
Limescale deposits shorten the lifetime of technical appliances like kettles, coffee-makers and dishwashers as well as bathroom or kitchen taps. In addition, such deposits on heating pipes and elements reduce the performance of the heating system, which calls for regular decalcification. This is where water purifiers come into the picture. Find out about the hardness of the water in your place of residence and then decide if you would like a water purification system. Your project manager would be happy to help and calculate the costs.
Three basic types of water-purification system are distinguished today
- Physical water treatment: Electric or magnetic fields ensure that limescale is no longer deposits on the sides the pipe, but is washed out with the water instead.
- Chemical water softening: Ion exchangers work on the basis of resins and salts by removing chalk from the water.
- Electrodes and special resins: The water is guided passed live electrodes. It flows through a cartridge that is filled with special resins or activated charcoal, meaning that the chalk particles flow out with the water.
