Drinking water

Tap water - just turn the tap and out it pours, clear and fresh. But in fact it's not as simple as that. To get this kind of water quality, the precious resource has to be strictly regulated. In the long term, hard and soft water can lead to corrosion or the build up of sediments, both of which pose serious problems for water providers.

Even just a small amount of phosphate added to drinking water can be of great help. CLAROFOS drinking-water phosphates from Budenheim are produced at food-product quality and even contribute to the body's supply of phosphates. A welcome side effect! They are beneficial both to our water supply and to our daily diet and are not harmful to health or to the environment. The maximum legal phosphorus content in one litre of drinking water is 2.2 mg - an infant's daily requirement of phosphorus is 100-300 mg, and an adult's is 700 mg. Furthermore, thanks to modern technology in sewage treatment plants, there is no danger of phosphate pollution in surface water.

Corrosion protection

the cause Corrosion occurs due to the reaction between the inner pipe wall, the oxygen carried in the water and the water itself. This results in rusting, which can … more

Hardness stabilization

Lime can clog and even totally block pipelines. Limescale in pipes leads to expensive and laborious cleaning work for water providers and house owners. The harder the … more

Iron masking

If the water coming out of the tap is brown in colour, then it probably contains iron particles from the pipes. Molecular 'colour masks' in the water help to maintain … more

Braking down incrustations

If deposits have already started to clog pipelines, it is necessary to prevent further sedimentation. Once a pipe is completely blocked, it has to be replaced or milled. … more
