British heating and plumbing product manufacturer Inta has introduced its ActivFlo range of domestic and commercial water conditioners to the market.
With 60% of the UK being affected by hard water, there is a significant market for reliable and effective water conditioners. ActivFlo and ActivFlo Pro provide an efficient solution to hard water issues and limescale buildup without requiring the addition of a chemical limescale inhibitor, the removal of any waste product, or regular maintenance.
ActivFlo extends the service life and improves efficiency of heating equipment, as well as preventing costly equipment failure. The addition of an ActivFlo to an existing water system will also reduce existing limescale.
Using a unique alloy that changes the chemical structure of limescale-forming calcium carbonate in water, ActivFlo converts calcite, a form of calcium carbonate that causes hard water, into aragonite. These aragonite crystals do not build up or form deposits and remain suspended in the water, flowing harmlessly through the system and eventually out to the drain.
Created with installers in mind, ActivFlo’s clean ‘in-line’ design allows for quick and easy installation in new build and retrofit applications. Its patented fitting system incorporates a collar at either end of the device, allowing it to be removed from an in-line installation without modification of the existing pipework.
Conforming to Part L building regulations, the WRAS-approved ActivFlo catalytic water conditioner is available with 15mm to 2” connections with a class-leading 15 year warranty. For commercial installations, the ActivFlo Pro is available with connections from 22mm to 10” and boasts a lifetime warranty. ActivFlo Pro also features optional building management system (BMS) connectivity for remote monitoring and integration with smart building solutions.
Stuart Gizzi, managing director at Inta, said:
“We’re excited to be bringing the ActivFlo range to the market for the first time. It uses proven technology to remove and prevent the buildup of limescale, and helps prevent blocked pipes and damaged components, while boosting efficiency and reducing environmental impact. In hard water areas, it will also help reduce stubborn deposits on taps and showers.“
With no ongoing maintenance costs, it is a desirable option for installers lookingfor a reliable water conditioner that is a true fit-and-forget product. We’ve designed it be clean and simple, and have matched it with premium packaging and superb aftercare support. Such is our confidence in the range, we’re offering a 15 year warranty with the domestic ActivFlo, and a lifetime warranty and money-back guarantee with the commercial ActivFlo Pro.”
