If you live in Basingstoke you will probably be aware of some of the problems that arise from the hard water supply in this area. The town of Basingstoke is built on a bed of chalk, and the water supply carries some of the chalk into your plumbing. This causes limescale to develop: there might well be a large amount of scale in your water tanks and radiators, and your pumps will be working harder than they should be, making your central heating system less efficient and more expensive to run. Appliances such as kettles quickly become “furred-up”, your laundry will need more detergent to get it clean, and you will find it difficult to get a good lather from any soap or shampoo. You may even find that your drains can become blocked. If you suffer from dry skin or a condition such as eczema or psoriasis you may find it is made worse by the hard water and you have to use a lot of emollients. There is evidence that some eczema sufferers have found their skin is much better after they have had a water softener installed in their home.

Having a water softener installed will really improve your quality of life and need not be as expensive as you might think. You will find that you will be using a lot less laundry detergent, which has become increasingly costly in recent years. Your tap water will feel lovely and “silky”, your clothes will feel softer, and your hair and skin should feel in much better condition.

Water softeners not only improve your water quality, they are also kind to the environment. They use natural salt to soften your hard water, and you will be using far smaller amounts of harsh chemical cleansing agents. Your central heating system and appliances will work more efficiently, and the softened water will eventually clear away the build-up of limescale deposits.
