When water contains a significant amount of dissolved salts such as calcium and magnesium, it is called hard water. Hard water is known to clog pipes and greatly reduce the efficiency of hot water boilers and tanks. Hard water also reduces the amount of chemicals such as soap and detergent that can dissolve in water and increases the cost of water heating by about fifteen to twenty percent. Therefore, water softening is a technique that removes ions that causes the water to be hard. Using softened water means expanding the life span of equipment and machines, such as boilers, laundry machines, and the pipelines. It also contributes to the improved working, and longer lifespan of solar heating systems, air conditioning units and many other water-based applications.
- All Chemical GSC100 and GPC200 are used as hard water softeners
