Can you feed a greenstar Cdi combo via a water softner
Yes, an ion exchange water softener will work with a combi-boiler and remove all the scale present in your existing system.
Naturally soft water dissolves chalk and lime as it travels underground, thus becoming hard. When softened it is once again capable of dissolving the chalk and lime in your pipework and hot water cylinder.
Heat plays a role in speeding up the process so the scale will be removed from the hottest surfaces first, such as the heat exchanger. This will improve the performance of the heater immensely and quickly restore it to it’s original efficiency.
Its a win win but obviously you have to pay for the water softener first.
