Questions in which we want to help you. We will introduce you to our filtering techniques offered so that you can make the selection easier.
Lime-based or "hard water" makes work and can be expensive. Lime stains and deposits make cleaning in the kitchen and bathroom difficult. Over time, stubborn limescale forms in the dishwasher, in the washing machine, in the kettle, the coffee machine and invisible also in lines. If you do not descale regularly, household appliances often need to be replaced prematurely or expensive repairs are required. If the water is very hard, tea, coffee or water-based foods will not taste good either. Descaling the water or binding the lime naturally in the water therefore makes sense in many ways. We explain what options are available and what are the other benefits of soft water.

Why should drinking water be filtered?

The quality of our drinking water is monitored very closely by the state water suppliers. However, the nearly 50 measured parameters (in Germany) and specified limits only regulate a fraction of the substances actually contained in the water.
