Water by its very nature contains substances including mineral salts that can severely damage steam generators or heat generators.
For this reason, the water used in boilers must always be properly treated and constantly checked to prevent and avoid serious damage to the generators.
In particular, with the increasing of the temperature, calcium and magnesium bicarbonates dissolved in water are transformed into calcium and magnesium carbonates that by precipitating form what is commonly known as "limestone".
Limestone is extremely harmful to boilers and can lead to serious breakage even in short periods.
The softener is the simplest solution to remove calcium and magnesium from the water and thus avoid the formation of limestone.
