    Limetron Hard Water Conditioner 

    High Hardness (Lime / Kalk) levels in a source water will cause limescale (white chalky substance) on your pipes, geysers, and fittings. 

    The Limetron Hard Water Conditioner is designed to change the state of the Hardness (Lime / Kalk) in the water so that it does not adhere to the inside of the pipes, geysers, and fittings. 

    The Limetron® is based on Fluid Dynamic's successful industrial catalytic water conditioning method as it offers reliability, and high performance is cost-effective for the consumer, and has the smallest environmental impact. Fluid Dynamics catalytic system is used by homeowners, corporations, and utility companies around the world with over 300,000 systems installed in over 50 countries.

    Limetron is our affordable residential conditioner, specifically developed for the UK household market in 1991. It offers an unrivaled package of effectiveness and ease of use, plus it enables compliance with Part L Building Regulations in the UK. Limetron reduces & prevents limescale build-up in a variety of residential and domestic applications. It also improves efficiency and extends the lifespan of heating equipment and water systems - making it one of the most versatile conditioners on the market. The Limetron model is based on Fluid Dynamics’ highly successful catalytic water conditioning systems - Colloid-a-Tron and Scaletron - which are widely used in commercial and industrial applications around the world.

    How Limetron® Works

    Salt-based (such as water softeners) physically remove a percentage of calcium and magnesium from the water by utilizing an ion exchange system. They treat water and prevent scale, but by use of chemicals – and only if operating & maintained properly. Our water conditioners – unlike softeners – are powered by chemistry, not chemicals. The chemical composition of limescale (calcium carbonate) can change state, just as water can change to ice or steam. Calcium is still present in the water; it is just in a different form or state and can no longer stick to pipes or surfaces.



    *Please note that the Limetron is called the Housetron in the USA, the video was made by Natural Sof.  

    Limescale forms in hard water areas most notably when water is heated. The scale is a result of super-saturation… As the water heats up the capacity to hold calcium in solution reduces and the water can become supersaturated with calcium ions. This result is the calcium falling out of solution as calcium carbonate and adhering to the nearest surface usually where the heat is generated. If you take a water heater, for example, this scale will form on the heating element or heat exchanger leading to a reduction in heat transfer efficiency, energy wastage and eventually leading to equipment failure.

    Limetron® utilizes the catalytic method of water treatment, it has no wires, requires no power source or salt and does not add or remove anything from the water.

    Inside Limetron® is the unique patented Fluid Dynamics catalytic alloy. It is made from a combination of semi-precious metals that react with water.

    When water flows through Limetron® the natural conductivity of the water causes the metals to react with one another generating an electrical field on the surface of the alloy.

    This electrical field causes the calcium and bicarbonate ions to precipitate from the water forming an insoluble microscopic calcium carbonate crystal called aragonite.

    The smooth surface of this aragonite crystal cannot adhere to surfaces in the same way as limescale and is washed through the system and exits down the drain. If aragonite deposits for example through evaporation on surfaces such as shower screens the deposits are much easier to remove and do not require chemicals or aggressive cleaning actions.

    In most cases, water treated by Limetron® will absorb existing limescale deposits. This is caused by the increase in solubility as a result of the precipitation of calcium ions during treatment. The descaling impact varies depending on water quality and the volume of existing limescale deposits within the pipework. 


    Limetron Sizes

    Please note that typically we would recommend the 3/4" (22mm) Limetron for most households and normally have this size in stock. However, the other sizes can be ordered on request, lead time is typically 1 to 2 weeks from when payment is received before we will receive the units from our suppliers.   

    Installation Instructions

    • No Wiring
    • No Maintenance once installed
    • Can be installed horizontally or vertically
    • No bonding required


    Installation is very simple and can be carried out by any competent pipe fitter. Ensure that the supply of water is switched off at the desired fitting location and cut out a length of pipe equivalent to the Limetron®. Remove the cutout section. Once installed there are no further alterations needed and Limetron® will not require servicing.

    Consider putting two valves on either side of your Limetron. This will enable you to have it simply removed and replaced with a length of pipe if you ever move home and wish to take your Limetron with you.


    1. Ensure the water supply is switched off before proceeding

    2. Remove pipework. The equivalent length of Limetron

    3. Fit Limetron ensuring fittings are tight on both ends

    4. Turn on the supply slowly.

    The Limetron units come with a 10-year warranty and an expected lifespan of up to 15 years*. 

    *Please note that the lifespan of the Limetron units can be less dependent on the quality of the source water and external elements. 


    PVC Threaded and Glue Fittings

    PVC(Polyvinyl chloride) fittings are used to connect sections of pipes or tubes, adapt to different sizes or shapes, and controlling the flow of water. There are two predominant types of PVC fittings namely PVC Glue Fittings and PVC Threaded Fittings. The difference between the two is that PVC Glue Fittings result in permanent joints and PVC Threaded Fittings are semi-permanent and can be replaced. PVC Glue fittings are joined with primer and cement- a chemical solvent that melts the surface of the PVC and then quickly re-hardens to fuse the pieces together. This results in an airtight, leak-proof bond similar to what you get with welding metal. An example of such a fitting is a PVC Glue Reducing Socket which is used to join together two pieces of PVC pipes with different diameters. Another example would be a  90 Degree Elbow which is used to connect two pipes of the same diameter at an angle of 90 degrees.PVC Threaded fittings utilise a simple threaded connection whereby replaceable 'male threaded' are screwed into 'female threaded'.Male threads have a thread on the outside of the fitting and female threads have a thread on the inside. When you thread the fitting in, it compresses against the other threads.PTFE tape is used to thread these together and the proper way to assemble threaded fittings is to finger tighten, then add one to two turns but no more. An example of a threaded fitting is a Reducing Nipple Male Threaded which is used to connect between two female threads of different diameters.
