Banbury Water Softeners are proud to be water softeners installers in Moreton-in-Marsh. This area is classified by British Water as a hard to very hard water region.
All water contains a certain amount of naturally occurring minerals, and water hardness is measured by the amount of calcium carbonate it contains. The water in Moreton-in-Marsh holds aboue 200 mg per litre of calcium carbonate.
Rainwater is soft, but when it soaks through rock such as limestone it picks up the lime. Cotswold stone, which is prevalent in the area, is a type of limestone. Many old buildings in Moreton-in-Marsh are built of Cotswold stone, a very beautiful honey-coloured rock.
When hard water goes through domestic piping it leaves a scaly lime deposit behind it. This scum also gets into washing machines, dishwashers, and heating systems. It is not only unsightly but it affects the efficiency of your appliances and plumbing work, and may even cause them to fail prematurely. Softer water in your home will lead to lower energy costs.
Water softeners work by ion exchange. The magnesium and calcium are removed by coming into contact with salt. Resin beads are used to facilitate the exchange of negative and positive ions.
Banbury Water Softeners will install a top of the range Twin Tec S3 water softening unit in your home. This unit has two softening tanks to ensure that you have a continuous supply of water. The Twin Tec S3 fits under the kitchen sink and requires no electricity to power it. The use of block salt decreases the amount of salt needed, and you can buy the salt from us.
