Water is not only H₂O. Our drinking water contains many other components. For example sulphates and chlorides, but also carbon dioxide and oxygen. Depending on the hardness and pH-value of the water and on the material used for the pipes, these substances have a corrosive effect.
This can be unhealthy – not only for the drinking water pipes. Because corrosion promotes the growth of bacteria. In addition, metal pipes can release heavy metals into the water.
A high hardness level can also lead to stubborn deposits and encrustations in pipe and heating systems as well as fittings and equipment. The consequence of the limescale formation can be malfunctions and damage.
