WHY FIT AN ELECTROLYTIC SCALE INHIBITOR?
Part L of the Building Regulations (conservation of fuel and energy for dwellings) states that where the mains total water hardness exceeds 200ppm, provision should be made to treat feed water to water heaters and hot water circuits of combination boilers to reduce the rate of accumulation of timescale and to limit its harmful effect on energy efficiency.
Electrolytic scale inhibitors are listed in the Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide as a suitable control. As water flows through the unit it emits charged zinc ions which induce hardness salts to cluster together and pass through heating appliances rather than forming Iimescale deposits on the heat exchanger or water heating element. Service life is dependent upon local water conditions and water usage. When the beneficial effect subsides its time to replace the unit.
This product is WRAS approved. WRAS approval demonstrates it is of a suitable quality and standard against the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations and Water Supply (Water Fittings) (Scotland) Byelaws, provided it is installed and used in accordance with the installation and requirement notes and any other restrictions within the approval. Any water fitting, which when installed, will carry or receive water from the public mains water supply in the UK, must comply with these regulations. They require that a water fitting should not cause waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of the water supply and must be ‘of an appropriate quality and standard’.
