Combimate from Cistermiser has been used to protect a care centre in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, from the worst effects of the area’ hard water.
Brendoncare Knightwood Care Centre features 30 apartments and seven bungalows for older people, as well as a twenty bed Intermediate Care Unit.
Combimate is easily installed, safe when used with drinking water and completely effective in dealing with limescale. It uses Combiphos, a100% food grade material approved by the FAO/ WHO, that is released in very small quantities into the water system and keeps the mineral ions in suspension. It then coats the inside of pipework and appliances, including boilers, preventing any deposit of scale.
The compact Combimate unit can be used for whole-house protection or purely for a single appliance [which would normally be a boiler] and it is very simply plumbed into the cold water supply pipe. The only maintenance required is replacement of the Combiphos once a year, a quick and easy process.
37 Combimates were ordered for Brendoncare Knightwood, supplied by Plumb Center in Eastleigh and installed by Aqua Heating and Plumbing Services. The limescale problem has been eliminated and a further 12 Combimates are to be installed at Knightwood very shortly.
