Hard Water

Water is a great solvent, and dissolves minerals very easily. Pure water can be called the universal solvent. As water moves through soil and rock, it dissolves very small amounts of minerals and holds them in solution. Calcium and magnesium dissolved in water are the two most common minerals that make water "hard." The degree of hardness becomes greater as the calcium and magnesium content increases.

Symptoms of Hard Water

Hard water interferes with almost every cleaning task from laundering and dishwashing to bathing and personal grooming. Clothes laundered in hard water may look dull and unwashed. Dishes and glasses may be spotted and streaky when dry. Hard water may cause a film on glass shower doors, shower walls, baths, sinks, and taps. Hair washed in hard water can be wiry and dry. Water flow may be reduced by build-up in pipes. Irrigation sprinklers and drippers can block up, as can stock-trough float-valves.

The amount of hardness minerals in water affects the amount of soap and detergent necessary for cleaning. Soap used in hard water combines with the minerals to form a sticky soap curd.

Hard water also contributes to inefficient and costly operation of water-using appliances, like kettles and hot-water systems. Heated hard water forms a scale of calcium and magnesium minerals that can contribute to the inefficient operation or failure of water-using appliances. Pipes can become clogged with scale that reduces water flow and ultimately requires pipe replacement.

Treating hard waters with BioFarm's magnetic water conditioners

Our magnetic water conditioners don’t actually remove the calcium and magnesium from the water, but they DO render them technically inert. They lose their ability to bind and to set like cement. This means you will no longer get that scale build-up on everything that the water comes into contact with. Hot water elements don’t wear out in a short time anymore. You can wash the car. You can wash the windows. No more scale formation and no more streaking on glass. The water becomes soft, and will easily form a lather. We have yet to come across a situation with hard water that we cannot treat. Have a look at some testimonials from clients with scale problems HERE for living proof. And we guarantee results……or money back.

WATER SOLUTIONS PRODUCTS
Magnetic Water Conditioners
We bring you solutions to problem bore waters, through our many years of experience in water science and irrigation management. We supply Australian-made MAGNETIC WATER CONDITIONERS.

Pure Water
Ozone System
The system is capable of treating very bad waters, and the end result is the cleanest water you could ever hope for. No colour. No smell. It's a very easy system to install and to operate, and it's cheap and safe because it's completely natural!

Acidic Water
Treatments
Our acid treatment systems use calcite as media to raise the pH balance to above 7.0. Works with pH balances as low as 5.0. Calcite is an alkaline mineral, which acts as a sacrificial media to reduce acidicty in water.

Drinking Water
Treatments
We carry a range of drinking water solutions to make your water safe!

Ultraviolet (UV) systems as a total minimal-maintenance system that is installed inline to sterilise water completely. All microorganisms, ie. bacteria, fungi, viruses and algae are destroyed on contact with ultraviolet. Much easier than chlorinating, and without that swimming-pool taste.
