In the UK there are many areas that have water that is classed as ‘Hard’ This water itself is not hazardous to our health. The hardness happens naturally from the calcium and magnesium mineral salts that are washed off the rocks that our rainwater runs off after it has fallen. Finsbury Park Plumbers are qualified to work on hard water systems. The water is tends to be much more hard in a chalk and limestone area than those with insoluble rocks like Granite. So, to deal with this hard water, an appliance called a water conditioner can be installed. The water conditioner has a couple of different ways to treat the water. The hard water causes limescale build up that will cover the inner walls of pipework and form on elements in kettles and dishwahers and washing machines. Here are some examples of the types of treatments: Using Magnetism will not change the chemical properties of the water it is treating, although it physically conditions the water. Two magnets are placed in opposition on a water pipe, the resulting magnetic field is directly in the path of the flowing water. Finsbury Plumbers carry the correct tools and can fit all types of appliances. So the water actually passes through the magnetic field. The magnetic effect changes the minerals in the water so they will not now adhere to the inner lining of the walls of the pipework. Added Zinc in measured doses can help to soften up the hard water, the zinc interacts with and binds to the minerals in the water. This mixture will help to stop the formation of scale on the inside of the pipes. Chemical Treatments like phosphate is released into the water causing a conditioning effect. Water which has been treated with phosphate is less likely to suffer from scale deposits on the inner walls of the pipes.
