With patented technology and ergonomic design, Aquabion uses zinc sacrificial anodes that release zinc ions into the water reacting with the calcium to form aragonite – a non-adhering lime. By essentially changing the form of the lime, Aquabion effectively prevents future build-up because the lime has lost its desire to stick. Aquabion systems are fast, easy and effective to install and can be fitted within an hour. The slim-line design allows for neat and safe installation into existing pipework, requiring no additional pipes or extra cupboard space. Guaranteed, no leaks and no breakdowns – all Aquabion systems come with a five-year warranty and a seven-year replacement cycle. During that time there’s no running costs, no maintenance and what’s more, the system is self-sufficient and self-cleaning. There are two domestic and 13 commercial size Aquabion systems to choose from depending on the size of the premises and the RRPs start from £340. Aquabion water conditioner systems are available through over 200 independent merchants nationwide with a money back satisfaction guarantee for one year. www.hpmmag.com August 2016 Xylem is launching the new Lowara Sekamatik series, a complete range of wastewater lifting stations for the collection and pressurisation of rain/clean/gray water and sewage for residential and commercial building applications.
