Zbiornik ciepłej wody w kuchni

Hard wateris a common problem for many apartment dwellers. Water hardness is due to the content of minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which can cause a number of problems, such as limescale on household appliances and bathroom surfaces, and result in increased use of cleaning products. A water softener may be the solution, but how to install it in a block of flats? In this article we will try to answer this question.

Is it possible to install a water softener in a block of flats?

Installation of a water softener in a block is possible, provided that we have good access to the installation with cold and hot water. It is best when the kitchen and bathroom have one riser. When choosing a location for a water softener, it is worth remembering that this device also requires a drain to the sewage system and access to electricity.

Cold water softener - a good solution?

The easiest solution, and at the same time giving good results, is to install a water softener for cold water. Why? First of all, home appliances such as a washing machine, dishwasher, kettle, iron or toilet will use soft, cold water. Thanks to this, the problem with sediment will disappear, and these devices will work more efficiently and longer.

What about hot water?

Hot water, unfortunately, cannot be softened, but there is no such requirement either. For bathing and washing hands, we usually use warm water, i.e. in this case a mixture of cold soft and hot hard water. As a result, we get water with a lower degree of hardness, which will either leave no deposits or will leave a small, easy to remove deposit. However, it is worth remembering that the warmer the water, the higher the hardness. After the bath, however, you can rinse the cabin with cold, softened water - this should help.

Which softeners do apartment dwellers choose?

People living in blocks of flats usually choose compact, smaller models of water softeners because they are so small that they will easily fit in a cupboard and built-in. An example can be models such as Ecoperla Slimline 14 or Ecoperla Vita 12, which are not only compact, but also efficient, easy to use and offer good quality of softened water.
