Hard vs soft water – whats the difference?

Rain water is naturally soft, it’s not until the rain hits the ground that it begins to absorb minerals found within the earth.

In hard water areas, the ground is typically a composition of chalk and magnesium, which is very easily absorbed by water. In soft water areas, the composition of the earth is typically hard stone, such as granite leading to those areas being naturally soft..

Benefits of soft water

Reduction in limescale

Limescale is the residue left behind by hard water. You may have noticed it on your kitchen surfaces, taps and shower. It also causes scaling in your kettle, dishwasher and washing machine, as well as inside your pipes and boiler. Softened water eliminates limescale and gets rid of years worth of built up scale, which will reduce cleaning time around the home. You will also save money on appliances and your boiler as they will work more efficiently and last longer.

  • Spend less time cleaning and less money on cleaning products!
  • Longer lasting appliances and happy pipework!
  • Sparking surfaces, glassware and crockery!

Improve condition of skin and hair

The residue from hard water is a factor in many skin conditions including eczema. New research confirms that softened water can greatly alleviate symptoms of eczema and other dry skin conditions. You will also use 50% less soap and shampoo to produce a much better lather, finding your hair to be shinier and more manageable.

  • No need to buy expensive skin or hair products
  • Softer skin and shinnier hair
  • Enjoy more bubbles! Whether this is lathering your shampoo or bubbles in your bath!
  • Improves eczema prone skin

Save money with cheaper bills, longer last appliances and the need for fewer products

Did you know that investing in a water softener saves you money in the long term? With softened water, appliances last longer and are less likely to break.

Your boiler and pipes will stay unblocked, which results in them running more efficiently; saving you money on your heating bills. You also need less washing powder, cleaning products, shampoo and soap.

Would highly recommend

This water softener makes Bishops Stortford water actually enjoyable!!! No more buying lots of Limelight etc. for descaling everything. The only drawback of this system is the almost total lack of maintenance required. i.e. after each 6-8 weeks, we have to keep an eye for topping up when the salt runs low and that is it!!! Excellent System, would highly recommend for anybody suffering hard water.

Very easy to use

It is very easy to use, you just have to add salt blocks when necessary. The kettle, iron and all the other appliances that use water via the softener do not scale up therefore you do have to descale appliances. It is better for your skin and less shampoo is required as it lathers up very well. The taps and shower head as also do not scale up. The appliance itself looks very neat and tidy and you can easily see when the salt needs replacing. Salt blocks can be ordered by phone or the internet very easily and are very price competitive.

A compact efficient water softener

We had the TwinTec Water Softener installed several years ago.It was installed in a tight corner and the installer went the extra mile to ensure it fitted as we wanted. Since then it has served us well and we are very pleased.I would not hesitate to recommend the appliance to anyone requiring a compact efficient water softening system.
