With around 60% of the UK affected by hard water, limescale can be a real problem for many shower users. Indeed, limescale build-up of just 1/8" will result in a reduction of around 20% in the heating efficiency of the shower and produce a noticeable drop in flow. In addition, further limescale build-up will inevitably lead to a considerably reduced shower life expectancy.

To help attack this problem, shower manufacturer Galaxy Showers has just launched two brand electric showers with in-built limescale protection.

The new Aqua 3000si and the electronically controlled Aqua 4000si both incorporate three specific anti-limescale features including a built-in Scalemaster Electrolytic Inhibitor which acts to make limescale crystals less likely to stick to each other or to any surface. In addition, each heater element has been given a special non-stick coating which minimises the adhesion of limescale forming crystals.

The Aqua 4000si also includes 'phased shutdown' which activates a flush of cold water through the shower immediately after the stop button has been pressed. The presence of cold water not only ensures users don't receive an unpleasant burst of hot water when switching on the shower, but also provides additional protection against the build-up of limescale.

The effectiveness of these features is such that Galaxy supply both models with a two year guarantee against the effects of limescale build-up. Indeed, Galaxy Showers is the only company to offer such a guarantee within the market.

When it comes to the products themselves, both represent the latest in shower design and technology. The ultra slimline Aqua 4000si is a sophisticated, luxury shower with many impressive features such as tactile push button controls, superb five position handset with rub-clean nozzles and easy-to-use temperature control dial. Designed to blend in with contemporary or traditional bathrooms, the Aqua 4000si is available in 8.5kW, 9.5kW & 10.5kW power ratings and costs from £144.99 inc VAT (ssp). It also comes with a full 1.25m flexible hose and long 530mm riser rail, a distinctive feature of all Galaxy showers.

The sleek, powerful Aqua 3000si combines fresh modern styling with outstanding performance. Among its many features are simple set-it & forget-it push button on-off control, large rotary power selector & temperature controls and a deluxe accessory set complete with five position handset, soap dish & shower gel holder. Priced from £124.99 inc VAT (ssp) the Aqua 3000si is tremendous value for money and comes in 8.5kW, 9.5kW & 10.5kW versions. Like the Aqua 4000si, the Aqua 3000si is available in white, chrome or gold finishes.
