What is Scale?
Scale is a problem in many area's of Ireland and is due to Limestone in the ground. In the home water system it can build up on appliances, Kettles, Hot Water Cylinders, Showers, Washing Machines etc. For areas with minor scale in the water, a filter housing can be placed before devices with a specialist cartridge. The internal cartridge is changed every couple of months. For any reasonable amount of scale the most economical solution is a water softening unit that consumes salt.

Where can I install a water softener?
The simplest place to install a water softener is as close to where the mains water enters the home as possible. Often water softeners are fitted into kitchen cupboards because that’s where the mains water enters the home. However, an expert advisor can recommend where best to install the water softener, whether that’s the kitchen, utility room, basement, or the garage.
What type of salt does an eSoft softener use?
All eSoft softeners use tablet salt. This is widely available through retail outlets, builders/plumbers merchants or garden centres. It comes in 10kg or 25kg bags. Recommended brands are Ecosil, Broxo or Axal Pro.
What are the running costs of an eSoft softener?
A water softener uses salt and water to carry out its cleaning process (regeneration or recharge). As a guide an average family could use 8-10 bags of 25kg of salt a year, which is approximately €80-100 a year.
Does an eSoft softener need servicing?
A water softener is a long term investment and can last up to 15 years or more. Like any other mechanical item your water softener will need annual servicing to ensure a long operating lifetime. Servicing is easily carried out by the homeowner and we provide full information on this.
