Water purifier and softener system

19 02 2022

We had a water purifier and softening system installed earlier this week. Our water here is really hard and full of chemicals such as copper, calcium, and lime, which cause all sorts of scale issues in the pipework, the HWS and other appliances, as well as unsightly blue/green and chalky residue on porcelain, taps, showerheads etc. But you can’t just buy a system and install it—there has to be drainage for the monthly purge of the system, which meant a soakwell and a new drain under the concrete slab, plus all the pipework to route the water from the mains point into the house through the filtration and softening system, and a new electrical point for the pumps for the monthly purge. The plumbers and electrician did a great job in the stinking hot weather!
