The issues with scale
It is often underestimated how damaging the effects of hard limescale can be. Scale is typically only noticed when kettles, taps and shower heads have to be replaced or cleaned, but the hidden impact and cost of scale is far greater.
Scale is the most common cause of breakdowns in heating and hot water equipment and is also one of the major reasons for vast quantities of energy being wasted in buildings. Furthermore, scale provides a breeding ground for bacteria such as legionella.

In the past, the only option to combat scale was to use water softeners, but they are very expensive to operate and are very harmful to the environment, depositing significant amounts of brine water into our waterways.
Many countries are now banning water softeners due to the negative impact they have on the environment. Other technologies exist but have proven to be ineffective.
