Expert Lime Removal

Lime is frequently used in water treatment processes for pH adjustment and water softening. Over time, lime particulates accumulate in areas of low velocity, such as treated water storage tanks. If left unaddressed, this could pose a risk to water quality as lime deposits can re-mobilise, enter the downstream network, and contribute to the deterioration of water quality, such as increases in turbidity. Deposits can also become breeding grounds for a range of bacteria as disinfectants are unable to penetrate accumulated layers of material.
