Only softening stands between the heating coil on the left and the heating coil on the right. RIGHT?
The answer to the above question has historically been YES. Now however there is an alternative. The BWT Group of Companies is one of Europe's largest manufactures and distributors of water treatment equipment including traditional water softeners. We recognised that through the use of softened water, thousands of tonnes of salt and millions of litres of water are being used in the regeneration process, to protect water heaters, boilers and the associated pipework. As more energy efficient boilers and water heaters are being developed, the medium they heat, water, has been ignored. (Just 1.6mm of scale build-up in heating systems will cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency.)
