Most of us are aware that calcium content in water can cause limescale, but this is just one of many factors that can affect the performance of a heating system.
Water quality can also be affected by:
Sludge and debris
Our advice is to check the quality of the water before topping up the system and avoid topping up more than 5% of the installation's water content in any one year.
On both new and existing applications, we recommend thoroughly flushing the system before installing the boiler. The full process can be found in our water quality treatment document. You can also get specialist advice on water treatment from reputable manufacturers. Reputable manufacturers and their products include Sentinel Performance Solution Ltd and Fernox. Products from other manufacturers may also be used, provided that the relevant manufacturer guarantees that they are suitable for all materials used and are corrosion-resistant.
