Eliminate limescale once and for all with the Stuart Turner
range of Water Conditioners.
Stuart Turner offer an alternative method
of treating water which has been used in commercial and industrial
systems for many years. This tried and tested technology is now
available to everyone with the new Stuart range of Water
Conditioners. These highly effective, WRAS approved Water
Conditioners are designed to prevent limescale from building up
throughout a property and have an added bonus, that water remains
drinkable straight from the tap!
Hard water area?
Limescale occurs in all water supplies
but in some areas, the levels of calcium carbonate present can
create such high levels of hard water that the efficiency and life
span of many appliances is severely affected, especially when the
water is heated.
The build-up of limescale within
appliances leads to increased energy consumption (just 1mm can
cause an 11% increase in energy use), loss of efficiency and the
premature failure of water using appliances such as kettles and
washing machines not to mention taps, showers, pipework and
boilers. Traditionally this issue has been addressed by the use of
salt based water softeners, which although effective, require high
maintenance and render the water unsuitable for drinking.
How it works
Conditioners use an electrolytic action to treat the water and
contain an unique alloy core that acts as a catalyst, causing the
calcium carbonate to precipitate into microscopic crystals. These
crystals then float in suspension in the water without adhering to
any surfaces, ensuring that boilers, cylinders and kettles for
example, remain scale free and efficient whilst continuing to
operate for many years.
The treated water is now more 'soft' in
its characteristics and will no longer form hard scale. However,
the water will retain all of its beneficial mineral content even if
unused for up to 90 days, in comparison to some other water
conditioning units available in the market, which the water from
will only remain treated for 24 - 48 hours.
Unlike traditional water softeners which
require space, bags of salt and the added expense of installing a
drinking water tap, the Stuart range of Water Conditioners offer a
cost effective and environmentally friendly solution which are
simply installed in-line with the existing incoming
Additionally, many boiler manufacturers
recognise their significance and recommend a water conditioner is
fitted in order to guarantee the lifetime of the boiler. For
installers, a Stuart Water Conditioner can be quickly and easily
fitted in-line with the rising main and as hard minerals will be
removed from the mains water supply, future servicing should also
be quick and easy, allowing more calls to be scheduled in the day
and increased revenue.
For the homeowner, having a water
conditioner fitted at the same time as a new water or heating
system, or a new bathroom or kitchen makes perfect sense. This one
simple investment not only protects and prolongs the life of all
water using appliances, it also minimises the use of chemicals in
order to keep taps, worktops and appliances limescale free, which
ultimately saves them money in the long term!
The importance of
There are two types of Water Conditioners within the range, one
designed for domestic use and one designed for commercial and
industrial use. If we look at the domestic variants, there are
three models to suit flow rates from 3 - 75 litres/minute and 15,
22 and 28mm pipework with each model supplied with pipework
connections making them easy to install. The only consideration is
ensuring you select the correct unit based upon the typical water
flow from the cold water mains to the property.
In order to select the correct model you
must determine the flow rate where the Stuart Water Conditioner is
to be installed. If flow is too low, insufficient turbulence is
generated, if flow is too high the water will not interact with the
catalyst in the desired manner.

help and guidance to ensure you select the correct unit based upon
the typical water flow from the cold water mains to the
