Hard water is water that contains magnesium and calcium molecules. These 2 minerals are “wellness assets” that play an important role in the proper functioning of the body.

The calcium present in the human body (1 to 1.2 kg) contributes to the consolidation of bones and the formation of teeth.

It also plays a role in blood coagulation, muscle contraction…
As for magnesium, it helps regulate the nervous system and other biological properties.
Calcium and magnesium are therefore necessary for the proper functioning of the muscles and the nervous system. They are also involved in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

The presence of these 2 molecules in domestic water is therefore not dangerous for our health and allows us to cover part of our daily needs.

However, water that is considered to be very hard (more commonly known as “hard” – from 15° French) can have serious consequences for your skin and hair, and even more serious consequences for your household appliances and your electricity consumption.

The concentration of limestone in the water network depends on the nature of the catchment areas.

The effects of hard water on the skin and hair are very unpleasant: tingling, itching, irritation and the appearance of dermatological disorders. The most sensitive skins will suffer from these inconveniences.

Hard water also causes dandruff, dry hair and premature hair loss.

Household appliances and pipes are also victims of limescale.
Limescale deposits on the heating elements of appliances (dishwashers, washing machines, coffee makers) cause breakdowns and overheating and can increase energy consumption by up to 30%.

If lime is essential for the proper functioning of the body, its mismanagement in the water of your home can lead to high electricity costs to repair or replace the equipment prematurely.



The OLEO plant manages scale intelligently



In addition to its action in eliminating pesticides and other micropollutants (aluminum, heavy metals, chlorine, pharmaceutical residues, etc.), the OLEO plant protects the water in your home while preserving the natural minerals present in the water.
Its protection against sediments and its anti-scaling action to protect your appliances will allow you to make important energy savings.

The OLEO plant, through its unique process, will prevent the formation of limescale while preserving the natural minerals present in the water.
