    9/12/2017

    Water hardness can wreak havoc on your boilers, creating holes in tubes, eating away at the walls. To keep the hardness at bay, you’re going to need to monitor the levels of calcium and magnesium seeping into your system.  There are things you need to know to ensure that you are doing this properly. First, use an automated system to increase reaction time to hardness. Next, monitor the softeners; they are critical in keeping the system functioning. Last, learn the temperament of your individual boiler; no two are alike.
