What happens if dirt particles get into my domestic water system?

Your modern fittings and appliances, such as washing machines and dishwashers, are becoming increasingly sensitive. Foreign particles can therefore quickly lead to malfunctions. Shower heads and aerators can become clogged.

Your drinking water installation is also at risk: In installations made of metal pipes, dirt particles can cause so-called spot corrosion. Spot corrosion, also known as pitting corrosion, is a form of corrosion that occurs at individual small points and leads to pipe bursts without “advance warning”. The reason: Among the solid particles that have settled in your drinking water installation, a locally limited metal dissolution takes place, which can lead to pipe breakage after a short time.
