Benefits of softened water
Lime is one of the most harmful elements for household installations. Most malfunctions occur due to an excess of lime. Softened water may help to extend the lifetime of your domestic appliances.
Soft water does not bleach clothes, helps maintain their colour intensity and protects the quality of fabrics.
Makes skin look soft and smooth, and prevents dryness, peeling and the feeling of tightness.
Soft water causes less lime build-up in pipes, bathrooms, taps, partitions and showers.
A clean and sanitised home
Hair recovers its natural softness and shine.
Lime reduction in pipes and facilities encourages the heat exchange and reduces the time it needs to warm up. This helps reduce energy consumption.
Glassware and tableware are always shiny
Lime reduction in water prevents it from building up in glasses or dishes, thus making them easier to clean.
