Scalemaster Magnetic Gold 15mm Review

Since lime-scale deposits caused by hard water problems affect the majority of households in the United Kingdom, several different methods have been devised to prevent and inhibit the formation of lime-scale. Water softeners are the most widespread scale control method that operate by turning hard water into soft water. Lime-scale water filters prevent the formation of scale by altering its structure, while magnetic lime-scale inhibitors prevent the attachment of lime-scale crystals to heat exchange surfaces. The Scalemaster Magnetic Gold works on the same principle, and it’s designed for use in individual appliances as opposed to whole house water treatment applications.

Should I bathe my baby in tap water?

When it comes to preparing baby formula with tap water or giving babies tap water to drink, the general consensus is that you shouldn’t use tap water for neither of these purposes, or if you do decide to use tap water, make sure you boil it or filter it to remove contaminants. Using filtered water to prepare baby formula is a safer alternative to both regular tap water and even bottled water. But what about bathing? Should you bathe your baby in tap water? Or should you take the same precautions you take with your baby’s drinking water?
