We have been enjoying our radiator central heating for over a week now. Dale and his team at Senior Plumbing and Heating did the installation. They did a great job, very friendly, kept us informed of what they were doing and kept everything neat and tidy.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Senior Plumbing and Heating, if you're looking at installing radiators.

Dale from Senior Plumbing and Heating have just finished installing our central heating with 7 radiators for my house and small apartment downstairs. They were very professional, tidy and went the extra mile. Thanks to Dale and his A team. Highly recommended.

Dale did a good job determining the best fit for our system replacement due to CO entering the air supply. Very knowledgeable and pointed out options that will save us money and keep us safe going forward. He also managed a next day installation to get our heat back on.


While hard water may have its benefits, most homeowners in Poole and Bournemouth find it a menace and rightly so. Which is why we usually suggest to our customers that we install a water softener when servicing or installing their boiler.

Hard water shortens the lifespan of appliances such as kettles, washing machines and dishwashers due to limescale buildup. It also affects the health of our hair and skin as the limescale clogs skin pores and leaves hair feeling sticky. The water pressure of your house could also be compromised from the buildup of limescale in the plumbing system and your bills might start piling up from inefficient boilers or heating systems.


Hard Water is high in minerals such as Calcium and Magnesium. A water softener works by removing these minerals with the help of some chemistry.

Water starts by flowing into a mineral tank where it is met by resin beads that are positively charged with Sodium Ions. Calcium and Magnesium are negatively charged therefore attach to the positive ions as water passes through the resin beads. The end product is soft water.

Water softeners have three components:

  1. Mineral tank – The mineral tank holds the resin beans and is where the bulk of the work takes place. Water flows into an inlet, through the resin beans then out to the rest of your home.
  2. Control Valve – This component plays a crucial role in tracking the amount of water going through the tank. The capacity of the resin beans can diminish as the sodium ions get used up. The control valve automatically starts a regeneration cycle to restore the positive charge in the resin beads. The control valve therefore boosts efficiency. 
  3. Brine Tank – This is a shorter tank next to the mineral tank and it facilitates the regeneration process. The tank contains a concentrated salt solution that replenishes the positive charge in the mineral tank. The salt is added manually in form of blocks or pellets and the solution flows through the resin beads once triggered by the control valve. The regeneration process could vary in different water softeners but it essentially involves charging the resin beans positively and clearing the attached Calcium and Magnesium minerals.
Kitchen and Bathroom surfaces will start to sparkle again and your faucets will be left gleaming. Your cleaning time will be reduced drastically and you can save the effort for other tasks.
Hard water affects your skin especially if you have a pre-existing skin condition. A water softener will finally allow you to break free from abrasive skincare products aimed at counteracting the effects of hard water. You will also notice healthier and fuller hair.
Limescale furs up appliances such as kettles, coffee makers and washing machines decreasing their efficiency and durability. A water softener will extend their lifespan and a good one could even clear the limescale.

Boilers and heating systems work harder than necessary when covered up in limescale. A water softener reduces the energy costs that accumulate from limescale damage.
