Based in the West country new customers often come to us because their existing service company cannot successfully remove the high levels of Iron and Manganese found in their private water supply. We can and as our name becomes better known we are getting enquiries from further afield regarding different and difficult problems.
This case study is about a customer who had no water filtration at all. As well as bacterial contaminatian there was a problem with limescale, or calcium build up in her pumped borehole water, particularly when it was heated. She did not want to use a softener as, not only does this raise the level of sodium in the water, but it requires the media to be regularly backwashed and there is nowhere to drain away the waste water.
Having established the maximum flow rate we were able to identify a suitable Ultra Violet (U/V) system that effectively destroys bacteria.
This is a well known solution but our treatment for the build up of scale uses a new product that keeps the water hard and prevents scale from forming. In other words you retain all the benefits of calcium rich water without the pipes furring up! Basically, the water is pumped through a vessel containing a new product called NeutrAcalC. Gradually this media is absorbed into the water, reacting with the calcium carbonate and preventing it from bonding to pipework as limescale. Because it doesn’t work like a softener no backwash or drain is required. It simply needs the media to be topped up approximately every three years.
No more limescale build up and a very happy customer who can drink her own water that complies with the water regulations 2017 standards.
“SCL Water installed a NeutraCalc system at my property.
I have a private water system, and for years had struggled with lime scale deposits on the shower screens, around the sinks and baths, and furred up kettle and other appliances. The NeutraCalc system has completely changed the amount of cleaning and descaling that I have to do. In fact I have no limescale deposits anywhere.
The unit sits comfortably in a cupboard in my utility room so is completely unobtrusive, there is no salt or other products to buy so it is economical to run just using minimal electricity. It will not squire servicing until November 2020.
SCL Water are a friendly professional company. The work was completed promptly. I am extremely satisfied with the system and would highly recommend SCL to you.” – Jean Smith
