Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducer | 15mm
The Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducer range uses electrolytic principles to prevent the build-up of scale throughout the home, and remains effective for up to 10 years, dependent on water usage. It works by altering the structure of the hardness salts, inducing coagulation and providing benefits to a range of appliances from kettles to showers and boilers offering whole house protection against scale. Part L of the Building Regulations (England and Wales) states that in hard water areas which exceed 200ppm, provision should be made to treat feed water to water heaters and hot water circuits of combination boilers to reduce the rate of limescale formation as well as limiting its harmful effects on energy efficiency
