The problem of limescale
Depending on the characteristics of mains water in each distribution area, limescale can cause real damage to fixtures, and remains a major headache for maintenance staff. What’s more, it often generates enormous upkeep and repair costs.
The most commonly chosen option is the salt-based water softener. But since the January 1989 decree, this solution only allows treatment of part of the water supply, the sanitary hot water! Statistically speaking, DHW represents only a third of the total water consumption of a household. This means that 2/3 are not treated and continue to ”fur up” taps, toilet flush systems, etc. This doesn’t seem logical.
The VitalQuartz DH series systems are fitted at the cold water mains supply and treat the global volume of water used. This is possible because they do not modify the organoleptic properties of water and thus are not subject to the 1989 decree.
