Limescale Treatment

Water heater corroded by limescaleLime scale is the hard, off-white, chalky deposit found in kettles, hot-water boilers,  and  other surfaces where the “hard water” has evaporated.

Lime scale has many serious economic, health and safety consequences.

It causes repeated malfunctions of expensive household appliances like washing machines and water heaters. It causes wasted electricity and gas because heating elements are ineffective.

If you are one of 60% of households in Ireland living in a hard water area, lime scale is costing you money in extra energy and maintenance.

Lime scale is a significant insulator and substantially reduces the capacity of the heat exchangers to heat the water, thereby expending more energy to penetrate through the encapsulating lime scale build-up.

Just a small coating of lime scale of 1.6 mm (.06 inches) on a heat exchanger in a boiler can reduce its efficiency by an average of 11 percent. As the scale increases, the efficiency losses rise dramatically. Thermostats insulated with scale can indicate a lower temperature reading, creating a false demand for additional hot water.

This means that if you let the lime scale build up,  each month you have to spend a lot more than you need to on electricity bills. Add to that 20 – 40 percent shorter life on your appliances and you will soon see how important it is to find an effective solution to the lime scale problem.

See a demonstration of a ScaleWatcher® below:


It has been approximately 3 years since the installation of the product. Our home is 25 years old, with the original plumbing.  Before ScaleWatcher we had ugly scale around the faucets and build-up on the shower heads. Our showers had years of scum build up that would not scrub off.  Our white clothes always seemed dingy even though we used Bleach in the laundry. We frequently had to buy new kettles and coffee makers.

After installing ScaleWatcher, over a period of time the scale build up disappeared from the faucets, shower heads, and the build up on the shower cabin is gone.  Our clothes are noticeably cleaner and whiter. Now we easily clean the bathrooms and have no more scale build up. We use less laundry detergent and less shampoo.  The water is soft and the shampoo lathers big, a huge difference in the water before ScaleWatcher.

We love our Scale Watcher and would recommend it to others.

Sincerely, Mike Henley
