The problem - Calcium creates scale in pipes,on appliances and other plumbing surfaces. This leads to higher heating and energy costs and expensive repairs to appliances,such as ice machines, kettles,coffee makers, dishwashers etc.
Scale can also be a source for bacteria to grow, which can be a health concern in drinking water applications. Calcium and alkaline water on the other hand, is important to human health, and supplements are recommended if calcium is reduced or totally void in one's diet.
The products listed in this category include calcium treatment units suitable for commercial applications, and home water filters, both drinking and whole house, which are also able to reduce scaling in domestic appliances whilst retaining healthy calcium.
