Is the water flowing more and more slowly through the tap in your kitchen? Or can you see white limescale on the tap in the bathroom? At the latest when water only flows drop by drop, it is time to decalcify the tap. We show you how to do it correctly in just a few steps.
Two factors essentially contribute to the calcification of the tap and determine the intervals at which a tap must be decalcified. On the one hand, calcification depends on the hardness of the water, on the other hand on the age of the water pipes. The hardness of the water should not be underestimated. You can easily find the degree of hardness in your region on the Internet. At the same time, the age of the water pipes also has a significant influence on possible limescale deposits - old pipes in particular show heavy rust deposits. If you do not decalcify your tap regularly, massive blockages can occur, leading to increased water consumption. Our quick guide can help you save money and nerves!
This is how it works:
Common descaling agents contain chemical ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction. If you are allergic to a descaling agent, use vinegar or citric acid as an alternative. Vinegar essence should be used with water in a 1:3 ratio. Pro-tip: slightly warmed vinegar works even slightly better against limescale.
If the water contains a lot of lime, it is advisable to decalcify the entire tap once a year. This is a little more time-consuming than descaling the sieve, but just as easy to do. But be careful: To clean the tap, place it in descaling agent for several hours. During this time, you cannot let any water flow there. Therefore, choose a suitable time for this work.
