How to find the right limescale solution?
For Hospital Estate Managers. Hospital External Contractors. Hospital External ME Companies. Hospital Maintenance.
Hospital hot water systems are often under extreme use which can lead to rapid build-up of limescale. These hot water systems frequently experience problems due to the build-up of hard limescale. Leading to an increase in energy costs.
“The result speaks for itself, the efficiency of the installed HydroFLOW® solution is undeniable”
HydroFLOW® electronic water treatment offers a chemical-free approach to treating existing and new limescale as well as biofouling
At the Centre Hospitalier de Roffach in Montpellier, France. Hospital Maintenance reported issues with heater and Hot Water System.
“Significant limescale formation in multilayer PE pipes since 2009”
Limescale can also cause blockages, impair valves or pumps and cause unsightly deposits on bathroom fittings, increasing maintenance time and costs.
In 2017 the Hospital Maintenance decided on installation of HydroFLOW® commercial water treatment with clear objectives set in place with Hydropath distributor Hydroflow France
- Significantly reduce the deposits of limescale encrustation
- Eliminate the existing limescale in the pipes over time
- Extend the life of equipment
- Reduce energy costs
- Reduce maintenance costs
HydroFLOW® electronic water conditioners offer a chemical-free approach to treating existing and new limescale as well as biofouling. They are an alternative to water softeners with the benefit of no ongoing replenishment costs, and with the treated water remaining potable.
After 6 months after installation the systems were inspected and we received this recommendation:
“The result speaks for itself, the efficiency of the installed HydroFLOW® solution is undeniable. The objectives are fully achieved “

Control of limescale is also important for the prevention of Legionnaires Disease. As noted in the L8 agreed code of practise for Legionnaires Disease, hardness scale forms a barrier to treatment chemicals and may provide microbial habitat. (L8-1, 1.9). Heavily scaled heat exchange surfaces make it more difficult to maintain the higher temperatures needed to reduce legionella risk.
A single HydroFLOW® unit can cover an entire system with its unique cluster-forming signal that travels through the plumbing network covering both hot and cold services, in order to protect shower, taps and fittings (making them easier to clean) as well as cylinders, boilers and heat exchangers. HydroFLOW® can also help to control biofilm in heat exchangers, cooling towers and plumbing systems.
HydroFLOW® is easy to retrofit and has minimal operation costs making ROI achievable very quickly.
