Hot water boilers are essential for homes and businesses across the UK, providing warmth and hot water for a variety of purposes. However, to ensure these appliances continue working optimally over time, regular water treatments are necessary. Water treatment for hot water boilers involves carrying out various processes to maintain water quality, helping to prevent corrosion and inhibit the growth of bacteria and algae. These processes often include water softening, chemical treatment and regular cleaning and maintenance of the boiler. Proper boiler water treatment is vital for extending the lifespan of your hot water boiler and ensuring the safety and reliability of the heating system.

The water treatment process

At Lubron, we offer comprehensive water treatment for hot water boilers, providing tailored solutions to meet the specific needs of each system. Our water treatment process begins with a thorough assessment of the boiler and water quality, allowing us to identify any existing issues or potential risks. We then develop a customised treatment plan, which may include:

  • Water softening. This involves removing minerals like calcium and magnesium to prevent scale formation. We do this using advanced water softening systems that remove hardness minerals from the water effectively.
  • Chemical treatment. A key part of the water treatment process involves adding chemicals to the water to help control corrosion, maintain proper pH levels and prevent microbial growth.
  • Ongoing monitoring and testing. Monitoring and testing the water quality, including its pH levels and microbial contamination, are integral parts of our water treatment process. This allows us to track the effectiveness of the treatment plan and make any necessary adjustments to ensure the boiler is operating optimally.
  • Cleaning and maintenance. Our boiler water treatment process involves regular cleaning and maintenance of the boiler and its components to help prevent issues such as scale buildup and corrosion. We’ll flush the system, clean the heat exchangers and inspect all valves and fittings for signs of wear or damage.

The importance of water treatment for hot water boilers

Don’t underestimate the importance of proper water treatment for your hot water boiler. Effective water treatment is essential for maintaining the longevity, performance and safety of your boiler system. Without it, scale buildup, corrosion and microbial growth can occur, impacting the boiler’s efficiency, lifespan and reliability. You’re likely to see maintenance costs increase too since untreated water can result in costly repairs over time. Investing in regular water treatment services for your boiler helps to protect this key appliance whilst ensuring an uninterrupted hot water supply for your home or business.
