Hello everyone, I came to talk to you about this problem that we all know and that worries us on a regular basis..,
the nominee is: limestone!
It clings and sticks to our pots and pans, our taps and of course once we've spent some time getting rid of it it comes back.
When we don't see him, he will from time to time remind us of him by "toasting" our coffee machines, our washing machines and filling up our expensive water heater, which in addition to over-consuming energy, will see its longevity halved.
As far as health is concerned, let's be clear, calcium and magnesium in water won't bring you any more than milk, all that's bullshit from our dear lobby to sell their junk (article on bioavailability to follow soon). Calcium and other minerals, vitamins ... assimilable in quantity are found primarily in our diet. so whether there is or not, it will not affect health.
The most annoying problems are more
It is therefore above all a question of comfort and savings, we can live with it but if we calculate correctly,
the expense of getting rid of the limestone is not superfluous.
Let's go back to a very controversial part, the contribution of water minerals to the body and bioavailability:
By reading these figures you will have quickly understood that it is not possible to drink about thirty bottles of water a day, already I wish you to find a good wheelbarrow, to have room to store all this at your work, not to be afraid of other people's eyes and to have toilets not far away !!!!
To stop joking, it is advisable to drink 1.5 to 2 liters a day, beyond that it would be very bad for your kidneys which would work in excess.
In conclusion you will have understood it, if you want to consume less electrical energy, less chemical descaling products, if you want the pipes of your house and your household appliances to become 100 years old, then yes you need a scale remover.
A positive point for our well-being, water with less limescale incrusting, is a skin and hair less stressed and softer, for those who are sensitive to it ... no more itching.
For those of you who know me, you already know that I'm very attached to nature, that's why I advise people who would like to do so to turn to devices that respect the environment.
Whatever brands are available on the market you can find salt-free antiscalants. More and more manufacturers have understood that this is inevitable and moreover it is also effective contrary to many preconceived ideas on the subject.
There are inexpensive anti-limescale solutions up to slightly more expensive water treatment plants that will bring you the quality of pure water and more maintenance for the whole house.
In the manuals of many manufacturers, for salt softeners it is advisable to separate kitchen water from the treated network. Over-consumption of water discharged and salted in the nature is not durably desirable. It is neither good for the environment nor to respect the water which is becoming more and more difficult and expensive to drink.
I will soon devote 2 articles to the different water treatment systems.
I hope you have benefited from this reading and I thank you for taking the time to read to me.
