How to Maintain our Products
Our 6 monthly program will help you deal with this mineral build-up before it becomes too difficult to remove gently .
At the end of your spouts, you will find a grey plastic honeycomb aerator designed to add volume to your water. It is important to extract this item during these occasions in order to remove limescale from it and ensure that any seal being created by calcium around its connection with the rest of the spout is broken. Aerators that have been ‘inserted’ into a spout will require the use of the colourful key supplied in the original packaging to unscrew them. On several ranges however, such as Sense and Anika, these aerators are held in place by a cap that can be simply unscrewed by hand. Take the removed aerator and soak it overnight in the same 50/50 solution of lemon juice and water. Subsequent agitation with a soft toothbrush will remove any limescale or mineral build up from the aerator.
The final recommendation we suggest at this stage is to service your showerhead. All of our overhead showers are fitted with rub-clean silicone nozzles that are designed to prevent limescale and mineral build up on the surface of the showerhead by instead trapping these minerals inside the nozzles themselves. After some use therefore these nozzles will become blocked with mineral build up. To release this, you should turn on the shower and gently rub each affected nozzle until they clear.
