Why Should I Carry Out Water Treatment?

Simply put, carrying out water treatment can help cut your costs, protect your Central Heating system and lower your carbon footprint.

If you live in a hard water area Your Boiler and Central Heating system can also get covered in scale build up and clog up your system.  70% of the UK are hard water areas. All the scale and build up of debris can reduce your system efficiency meaning your costs are higher than they should be.

10% of excess air can stop your radiator warming up properly according to the carbon trust, again this means that extra energy will be needed to warm up your building through radiators.

Particles of rust and scale circulating around your pipework and radiators within the water eventually settles down, this is known as sludge. Once settled, this sludge causes blockages and can cause ‘Cold Spots’. The cold spots in a radiator can also lead to the radiator becoming in-efficient and again increasing fuel bills. Boiler efficiency simply relies upon a “Sludge free system” according to the Energy Savings Trust, the same trust are also advocates of our X-PO10 Inhibitor.

With all of these additive reactions going on inside your Central Heating system, it doesn’t take long for components of your system to fail. Pumps, Heat Exchangers, Radiators and Sensors can breakdown very easily under these conditions and can lead to avoidable but expensive repairs.

The Energy Saving Trust and Carbon Trust estimate that treating the water within your system and keeping it free of sludge can increase efficiency by 10%-20%, resulting in a very large saving in energy costs for the commercial business owner.
