What causes Limescale?
Water dissolves lime into itself as it passes through rocks and soils. Water which contains dissolved limestone is said to be hard. When this hard water is heated, the lime reverts back to its solid state, i.e. lime scale, causing scaling problems in kettles, showers, dishwashers, washing machines, immersion heaters, central heating, hot water pipes, etc. It makes them less efficient, and they need to be serviced much more frequently. Also, the scale makes it much more expensive to heat the water.
Hard water also forms a scum which floats on sinks, baths and dishwashers and makes everything more difficult to clean. Tableware, clothes, skin and hair look dull and feel lifeless. More shampoo, washing-up liquid and Calgon are used to counteract the lime scale, which is very hard on the hands and often causes skin problems. It also forms a thin scale or scum that floats on top of tea.
