Enjoy the advantages of soft water!
All waters originate from rain, which is originally soft. Rainwater withdraw metal-salts from the ground and carries them in solute form.
In Hungary, almost all pipe and well water contains these solute salts. We talk about hard water, if it contains higher than average quantity of Calcium and Magnesium. We call it "hard-water", because it creates deposits in the water-system. This phenomena is is the lime-scale. This happens when solutes secede from water and cover the inside of pipelines with hard crust. We can measure the hardness of water easily with hardness tester. During water softening, these materials are removed from the water.
The water softeners of Pentaqua are using ion-swapping method. When hard-water flows trough the ion-swapping resin, the resin changes the calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. When the resin is depleted, it can be regenerated with kitchen salt (sodium-chloride) solution. During regeneration, sodium ions from the salt solution get into the resin, while calcium and magnesium ions are flowing out in the form of waste-water. With this method, the same resin can be used for years. This machine is fully automatic, only the salt has to be refilled once in a month. Our softener will solve all issues created by hard-water.
Wherever a water softener cannot fit, our electronic anti lime-scale machine can still help. Its installation is easy and it is fully automated. The anti lime-scale machine does not take out the materials responsible for the hardness of water, but it prevents their deposition, and removes the already deposited lime-scale, which will leave trough the faucets. With this, we can protect the washing machine, the dishwasher, the boiler and the furnace, enabling these to save 20-30% power.
What kind of effects does hard water have on your home and pocket?
We talk about hard water, when the in our home contains high quantities of solute mineral salts, calcium and magnesium. These salts form lime-scale and embitter our life. The measuring unit of water hardness is the german hardness degree. The water has one german hardness degree (sign: dHo) if there is 10mg calcium salt in 1 litre of water.
Soft water: < 7 dHo
Hard water: 7dHo < 17 dHo
Very hard water: > 17dHo
As time passes by, the thickness of lime-scale will grow not only on the heating element of your washing machine, but on the inside of your furnace, your coffee machine, your faucets, and your pipes. It will also do great damage to all household machines, that are using water. The lifetime of these machines will be much shorter, their energy effectiveness will be lower and their maintenance will cost more. According to the research of the American water quality watch committee, boilers and furnaces that is using hard water shows an effectiveness of 22-30% lower. This was the heating and maintenance costs are considerably higher.
We think about the future. Do you do the same?
Increase the effectiveness of your machines with central water softener. Forget the lime-scale on faucets and machines!
Water softeners by PENTAQUA will protect your household machines, devices and faucets against lime-scale, as it softens the whole water system of your home. As years will pass you will see, that your investment in our water softeners will pay back greatly. Water softening is a great investment.
Soften your water, improve your life! Soft water means less housework! In your bathroom and kitchen, your tiles and faucets will be shinier and free of blur. Your tableware and cups will dry without traces of blur. You will need less washing powder (up to 50% less) and your clothes will be cleaner, softer and keep their colour better.
If you use a water softener from PENTAQUA, you will never ever have issues with lime-scale traces on the floor.
Taking a shower is more comfortable with soft water! During washing out, but especially when having a bath children and sensitive skin matures can experience dry skin and skin irritation. Taking a shower with soft water is a much better feeling. Your hair will be softer, more flexible, easier to handle, your skin will be silky and healthy. This happens because the mineral salts responsible for all the issues are gone from the water. If you ever felt like its hard to wash of the soap from your skin, that was caused by those mineral salts. With soft water, lower quantities of soap and bubble bath are enough to achieve the same effect.
Cook with soft water and the food will be more delicious, tea and coffee will be much more tasteful! The salts responsible for water hardness can worsen the taste of food, therefore the taste of food and drink made from hard water will be different.
When creating an excellent tea or coffee, not only the raw material is a basic, but the good quality water as well. Hard water can destroy the taste of even the best tea, while soft water can improve the taste of an average tea.
How much can you save?
- How much time did you spend removing the traces of lime-scale?
- How much did you vexed because your clothes became dim, and course touch?
- How much more energy did your washing machine, dishwasher or water heater consume?
- How much did you spend on the maintenance and repair of your machines because of lime-scale?
- How much does it worth to have a lime-scale free household?
Everyone would answer a different number for this question, because there is not two identical household. But one thing is for sure: if you take the time to add together these numbers, you will be shocked by the number you get.
