Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inhibitor Bought this to replace an in line scale inhibitor. Dead easy to install and at least it won't leak like the one that was fitted previously. Only fitted it a couple of days ago but can already see a difference in the water

Is this a suitable device to mitigate against limescale in a hard water area?

Will this device reduce the limescale or does it just prevent limescale from sticking to pipes? Is this device suitable mitigation for a combi boiler installation to reduce limescale in a hard water area?
Asked by: bpotter
The BWT Electronic Scale Inhibitor alters the characteristics of hard water. Once conditioned, the limescale simply passes through a domestic hot water system without sticking to heat exchange surfaces. When used in a hard water area it can extend the life of household hot water appliances such as shower units or hot water cylinders. Please note:This is not a water softener, it is a scale inhibitor product which will prevent scale build up on pipework and heating elements.

What is min length of pipe required between joints to fit this?

Asked by: Pjm4
For optimum performance the antennae should be wrapped around an uninterrupted length of pipe, however, the unit can be fitted either side of a valve or joint if necessary. Please ensure there is a minimum gap of 50mm between the coils with a minimum of 12 turns for each coil, depending on the size of your pipework.
