The Limescale Horror Hall of Fame

9 January 2012

Limescale may not seem like the biggest problem you can have in life but it can prove fatal to a number of kitchen accessories – from easily replaceable items like kettles to much more expensive investments like washing machines.

If your shower head gets clogged up with limescale that can also be a big problem.

The same can be said of plumbers – calling one out can be one of the biggest shock expenses in life – so you don’t want to taps to end up looking like this.

Investing in a water purification system that turns hard water into soft water may seem like an expense but in truth it could save you money and hassle in the long run (as well as preserving your health by allowing you to drink untainted pure water.) We scoured the internet for some photos of the worst limescale abuses.

The last photo shows you the difference in water quality once the water has been filtered through a water purification system .
