Catalytic Water Conditioners

Salamander Pumps Water Conditioners offer single point or whole house water supply treatment, they prevent limescale build-up, protecting your household appliances including a shower pump.

Our Catalytic Water Conditioners use an alloy core which changes the Calcium Carbonate   from Calcite to Aragonite, there are no chemicals or salt in this process meaning that the water is also safe to drink.

Key Features

  • Single point or whole house water supply treatment,
  • Prevent limescale build-up,
  • Do not use chemicals or salt,
  • Easy to install in any orientation,
  • Compact design,
  • Environmentally friendly,
  • Maintenance free – no ongoing running costs,
  • No electrical power required,
  • 10-year warranty.

FAQs

Can you drink water with water conditioner?

Yes, you can drink conditioned water because nothing has been added or taken away from the water.

Does a water conditioner stop limescale?

Catalytic water conditioners do effectively prevent the build-up of calcium that causes limescale in your pipelines, heating systems, and large and small appliances.

Does the water revert to its original state once it passes through the water conditioner?

Water that passes through a Salamander Pumps’ water conditioner will remain conditioned for up to 3 month if it is stored in a tank.

How do I choose a water conditioner?

It is crucial to choose the right water conditioner to get results. Selecting the wrong size conditioner including using a larger diameter than needed can compromise water delivery and affect treatment quality.

Water conditioners size is selected based on the amount of water flowing through them. Check the flow rate of the incoming water and match this to the relevant water conditioner:

In general applications where the flow rate is known to be low or there is relatively heavy scale build-up inside the pipe already, a conditioner one size smaller than the pipe diameter is recommended. Therefore, it is important for the installer to check the flow rate entering the property.

How long does water conditioner last?

Salamander Pumps’ water conditioners have a warranty of 10 years.

How would an installer know in what direction to fit the water conditioner?

Both the ½” & ¾” water conditioners have flow direction arrows engraved on the outside diameter.

The ½” single point water conditioner can be fitted in any orientation as it has a parallel alloy core.

All Salamander Pumps’ water conditioners can be installed both vertically and/or horizontally.

What causes scale?

An increase in temperature

An increase in water temperature can cause calcium and bicarbonate to come out of solution and deposit as scale (calcium carbonate) on the nearest receptive surface. This effect can be seen in heat exchangers, heating coils taps & shower heads.

An increase in pH (“potential of hydrogen”)

Pressure reduction that occurs as water is released from the system to atmospheric pressure allows carbonic acid to be released in the form of CO2. The reduction of this acidic component in solution causes an increase in pH and the potential for scale to form.

Salamander Pumps’ catalytic water conditioners treat hard water and prevent scale build-up.

What does a water conditioner do?

Salamander Pumps’ catalytic water conditioners treat hard water and prevent scale build up. They use an alloy core to create turbulence and a catalytic reaction, which changes the calcium carbonate, found in the water, from calcite to aragonite. There are no chemicals or salt used in this process, the calcium carbonate is still present but can pass through the system without depositing as scale. Nothing is added or removed from the water, so the water is safe to drink.

The treated water also has a greater capacity for absorbing scale, so pre-existing deposits are gradually broken down and absorbed.

What if there is no room to fit the water conditioner after the stop tap?

If the water conditioner is being fitted on an open vented (Gravity) system, it can be fitted further downstream to the cold-water tank where the water is held usually in a loft space. This will ensure that the water supplying the hot water cylinder has conditioned water.

If being used on an in-coming mains fed system, it should be fitted before any appliances like combi boilers or unvented cylinders and ideally before any Salamander Pumps’ product like an AccuBoost or TankBoost. In some cases, it might have to be fitted after the kitchen cold water drinking tap.
