Water is our most important asset. We drink it, we cook with it, we shower and clean with water. It is not for nothing that the legislator also strictly monitors its quality: water is our best controlled food.
What our waterworks deliver meets the highest standards and is subject to strict controls.
Between your waterworks and your tap there are many kilometres of pipes, often decades old, made of various combinations of materials. This causes encrustations to loosen; sand and metal particles get into the water.
The water that you like may not be good for your domestic installation and the connected appliances. Especially in regions with very calcareous water there are often problems.
Water is not only a foodstuff, but also a luxury good. And therefore optimally treated water simply means more enjoyment.
A powerful protective filter provides the basis for most water treatment solutions. Because even with the greatest care, it is impossible to prevent small impurities from being washed into the water pipes of your house: chipped cover layers, metal chips, residues of sealing material. These particles can damage fittings and cause seals to wear. If these particles settle in the pipes, they can cause so-called spot corrosion. The consequence: pitting corrosion.
Filters remove dirt particles from the water and prevent corrosion and damaged fittings. The so-called backwash protective filters make it particularly easy for their owners: Their filter element does not have to be laboriously replaced when it is dirty. Instead, it is simply cleaned with clean water – this saves time and, in the long term, a lot of money. This principle is also a JUDO invention.
Water naturally contains lime. In some regions, the lime content in the water is high or even very high – in this case, it is called “hard water”.
You can see the lime in the form of white deposits in your shower or in your water heater. In the same way lime is also deposited inside pipes and installations. This leads to increased energy consumption and therefore higher costs.
A softening plant from JUDO provides a remedy. And it can do even more.
We have already described the unpleasant consequences that hard, i.e. very calcareous water can have. If too much lime is dissolved in the water, it should be removed.
But there is another kind of lime protection. It consists of leaving the lime in the water – but making sure that it cannot settle.
JUDO’s alternative limescale protection systems achieve this with the help of a special process in which only electricity is required for hardness stabilisation – no salt and no resin tanks. In this process, the tiny lime particles are bound to form larger particles that can no longer settle on pipelines.
JUDO’s alternative limescale protection systems protect your installations and equipment, avoiding annoyance and additional costs.
Water does not only consist of H₂O. Our drinking water contains many natural substances, such as sulphate and chloride, but also carbon dioxide and oxygen. Depending on the hardness and pH-value of the water and depending on the material used for your pipes, different substances have a corrosive effect. In other words: they lead to rust. Foreign particles that have been washed into the water promote the formation of rust, as do installations made of different materials and low water movement in widely ramified piping systems.
Corrosion in your installation and in equipment such as your water heater can not only affect your health – it can also cost you money.
It is not without reason that corrosion protection has a high priority in laws, regulations and standards: authoritative hygiene guidelines demand clean piping systems without corrosion particles.
Water damage always comes by unexpected. Because signs of wear and tear on your pipe system are invisible: pitting, corrosion or frost wear on the pipes unnoticed. It is also relatively common for unsuitable materials to be installed together or for the composition of the water to favour rapid wear. These problems only become visible when it is too late – and the apartment is under water. The consequential costs of water damage are difficult to estimate. By the way, did you know: Your insurance company will not pay a cent for water damage if you are away from home for more than 72 hours and have not turned off the water.
If the temperatures fall in autumn, we simply turn up the heating inside and enjoy the cosy warmth. The heating water plays an important role here. However, if its condition is unfavourable, the heating system may have problems. For example, if there is air, mud, sand or rust particles in the heating circuit, the heating costs can quickly increase, the radiators start gurgling or the boiler can even be damaged. With our heating protection products you are on the safe side.
