Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money The good bit – it was easy to install. The bad bit – it doesn’t work! I live in a relatively hard water area and I need to de-scale our kettle about once a month. Scale on tap spouts and shower heads also builds up at a measurable rate. After fitting this device I have noticed no appreciable difference in lime scale build-up, measured over a period of three months. I then removed the device and tested for another three months. Absolutely no difference! I’m at a loss to understand why this product has such good reviews. It seems to me that I have a shiny but empty tube - a complete waste of money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water conditioner I have fitted these for the past ten years. I tried the wire-type but they do not work, I tried the additive methods but they get blocked up so I use these. It should be noted that they are not designed or intended to reduce the limescale, rather they change the way lime builds up. Instead of forming hard crusts of lime, which need to be scrapped off or attacked with acid, they leave the lime much softer so it can be removed during normal cleaning. If you do not clean your shower then you will not notice any difference but if you do then you will find the limescale wipes away easily. They will not stop scale build-up in kettles, they are not supposed to. I have one in my Parent's house, one in my Brother's and one in my own. Nuff said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will last forever Slightly more expensive than the competition but you get a superior product. Was easy to install no moving parts or additional costs great long term investment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No difference here as well! £40 down the drain. I descaled my kettle to see how quickly scale would be back. It was back 3-4 water boiling later. Have now thick layer of scale in my kettle, needs descaling again. For the record - water hardness in my area between 7.5-8.0 pH. This "device" was a waste of money.

Can I install this to just supply my washing machine and dishwasher? To reduce scale build up. I plan on fitting it behind the two appliances.

Asked by: Tongsy

How often should these be changed?

Seems I got the guarantee period wrong for this product. It's two years not the five years I've seen quoted elsewhere. I thought the Salamander website quoted even longer. It all depends on the water quality in your area. I would agree change the unit every two years especially if you live in a high scale area.
