EcoPlus XL Whole House Water Filter with Proven 99.6% Scale Prevention. The EcoPlus system filters the water to a high level and prevents limescale from forming in your whole home. Also descales existing pipework. Main filter life 3 Years.
Cost effective chemical and salt free alternative to water softener and whole house water filter.
The EcoPlus XL is the larger version of the EcoPlus system and is suitable for average/larger homes (including homes with Megaflow boilers) and small commercial settings. The EcoPlus XL uses the latest in scale prevention and water filtration technology to filter the water for your whole home or business premises. Once installed the system will filter all of your water to a high level, descale existing pipework, and prevent future scale from forming - without adding any chemicals or salt into your water! The scale prevention filter media is proven to be 99.6% effective, making this an extremely effective system.
The first filter pod on the system contains a multi media filter which will filter levels of Chlorine, THM’s, PCB’s, and reduce levels of heavy metals (if present) such as Lead, Cadmium, Chromium, Mercury and Iron. The filter media also has antibacterial properties to help control bacterial growth. This produces good tasting water for the whole home which you can drink from any tap. This is also great for the garden for plants, paddling pools, de-chlorinated water for fish keeping, etc.
You will need to replace this first filter on the system just once every 12 months (dependent upon usage and incoming water quality)
The scale prevention takes place within the second filter without adding any salt or chemicals into the water. The filter does this by using a process called Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC), which basically conditions the water and converts the hardness minerals in the water (Calcium and Magnesium) into harmless, inactive microscopic crystals. This prevents the Calcium and Magnesium from bonding together to form limescale, and also over time will descale existing pipework and appliances. Because of this process no natural minerals are lost from the water, and no chemicals or salts are added either.
Water which has undergone this filtration process has a conditioning effect which prevents scale from forming in pipework and appliances, around sinks and washbasins, and will help prolong the life and efficiency of your appliances by preventing limescale. The scale prevention media will work even in the hardest water areas and has been tested independently against the international protocol for scale prevention with a 99.6% effectiveness rating.
You will need to replace this second filter on the system just once every 36 months (depending upon incoming water quality).
We also have a full bore compression fittings bypass kit and flexible hoses available as an optional extra, these are useful for tight installations where the system cannot be installed in-line with the pipe and needs to go underneath / above the pipe instead. Please see "accessories" tab for fitting kits in 15mm and 22mm sizes,

After 2 yearsThis filter has reduced the amount of scale build up to where after two years everything still looks great.
JedToddThought i would write a review after the product has been operating for three months. As a plumber, i found it easy to install behind my built in drinks cabinet in a modern kitchen. The reason i bought it, was that i had replaced all my household taps, and en suite shower, plus new bathroom. I live in a very hard water supply area of Northamptonshire, check your area online, and was fed up of the heavy hard limescale buildup, i had used an inline inhibitor for years, which helped a lot, but not enough. This unit has helped even more at prevention, but being in the area i am, i still get a build up which is finer in nature, and easier to scrape away with a fingernail. I also bought the unit because of the additional filter, ( i brew copious amounts of pale ale, lol ) and the benefit that all the taps in the house have this benefit, and not just the fridge water filter. Do i think it is worth the money? in all honesty i have to say yes, although i cannot say how often filter one will last for, i would like to see a unit specifically for very hard water, although i do believe that all water suppliers should reduce limescale at souce. Tried to post photos.
makes a real differenceI had a professional plumber install it, and the only thing is that its a big unit. The first thing you notice is the water tastes so good. I mean mountain fresh good. Does it reduce the limescale or prevent the limescale from sticking? It doesn't remove it entirely, i would say it reduces it, but put it this way, the shower still has limescale build up that needs to be removed with descaling agents. Perhaps not as often as before but still needed. will i be maintaining the system, yes, i'm never going back to the councils water without filtering it, not even my dog would drink that water.
