LimeStop Deep Blue Ultimate 15mm

Credit and Debit Card Acceptance for small business with Paya Card Processing Services



LimeStop Deep Blue Ultimate 22mm

Credit and Debit Card Acceptance for small business with Paya Card Processing Services


What’s the cost?

£145.00 (free postage)

What’s the installation cost?

We charge £100 for a typical installation (RG postcode area only) and that includes a pressure reducing valve. Many plumbers will charge you less than that, and you can fit it yourself.

What is the LimeStop?

The LimeStop is a limescale inhibitor – it inhibits limescale from forming. Some people call such devices ‘water conditioners’.

The majority of limescale inhibitors don’t work, do they?

No, they don’t. Many such devices use magnets, electrolytic action, or electronic waves. If they worked, then the manufacturers would offer you your money back on performance...but they don’t! Here’s the ‘guarantee’ on a popular-selling ‘limescale inhibitor’...

“We guarantee that your ********** will work for you. If you are not satisfied with the performance

after 3 months continuous use please contact us within 30 days of the end of this period”


Really? Four months? It follows then that after just four months, when you find that this product (which costs more than £100) doesn’t actually work, then you won’t get your money back! Here’s another...

“If after six months of continuous use, you are dissatisfied with the

performance of your water descaler, you may return it for a full refund”


Again, after six months you’ll be unlucky when you discover it hasn’t worked! What good is this? If it really did work, then the manufacturer would surely be happy to give you your money back no matter when you made your claim?

So why is the LimeStop different?

The LimeStop uses Siliphos - silicate-polyphosphate, so it’s classed as a ‘physical’ limescale inhibitor, in that it actually uses something to inhibit limescale – there are no smoke and mirrors! Siliphos is remarkable stuff - able to positively halt limescale formation.

Is that why you guarantee it?

Yes, if you research ‘limescale inhibitors’ (on the internet, or even by phone) you’ll find that manufacturing companies of these devices will NOT give you your money back, years down the line, if they don’t work! WE WOULD. We can offer such an amazing guarantee because Siliphos really does work, even in very hard water.

Like where?

LimeStops have been installed in most parts of the UK, and have been sold in France, Spain and Belgium.

What are the dimensions of the LimeStop?

Approx 320mm x 110mm (approx 13 inches x 4 inches). The LimeStop projects 140mm away from the wall it is fixed to.

What does it weigh?

2 kg.

What’s inside that inhibits limescale?

Siliphos - a food grade material called silicate-polyphosphate.

How does it inhibit limescale?

As water flows through the LimeStop it flows over the spheres of Siliphos - and they give up a slight amount of their coating. Siliphos inhibits limescale in two ways. First of all it makes the calcium molecules stay in suspension, rather than stick. Secondly it lays down a layer of silicate-polyphosphate on the walls of pipes etc. This too helps to inhibit limescale sticking.

How much Siliphos is in there?

1.2 kilograms (400 grams more than our closest rival product!).

Why that particular amount?

Because 1.2 kg is the optimum amount to ensure limescale inhibition in the average home.

Does it remove limescale that is already present?

Yes, but it takes time.

Should it be fitted either horizontal or vertical?

Always vertical.

Does the Siliphos 'run out' of its effectiveness?

It degrades, that’s why replacement is required in two years. We will send you a reminder.

So what will be the continual cost of the LimeStop?

It can be as little as just 15p a day! The cost of replacement (every two years) is just £113.00 postage free, that’s a whopping £32.00 off the standard price.

Is it a straightforward swap?

Yes, very.

Should I use a plumber to do that?

You could, but it really is very easy - you just need a spanner suitable for the connections. We explain exactly how to do it below, but it really is a 5-minute job!

Isn’t there a rival product to the LimeStop - where you just replace the Siliphos?

Yes, but the LimeStop still works out cheaper! See the comparison at the bottom of this webpage.

Is the water drinkable?

Yes, Siliphos is a non-hazardous, food-grade material. It conforms to EN1208:2005 and WHO standards for drinking water supplies. Unlike artificially-softened water, it's safe for babies too.

Do you supply a ‘check valve’ anyway?

Yes, we do. It’s in the box.

Is it classed as a water softener?

No, the hardness is still there, it's just suspended. This is true of all limescale inhibitors; if a water conditioner doesn't actually remove the calcium, then it's not a water softener.

If the treated water is then stored, will it still be effective?

Yes, but the sooner the stored water is used, the better.

I don’t have a 15mm mains water connection

No problem, a 22mm version is available for the same price - just ask for it.

If the treated water is then stored, will it still be effective?

Yes, but the sooner the stored water is used, the better.

What do I need to install it?

You’ll need some simple fittings, copper tube, a tube cutter, and basic tools - we’ll help you all the way. Just read the ‘Fitting Instructions’ at the bottom of this webpage.

Your instructions say not to fit the LimeStop too close to a heat source, why?

Warm water backfeeding down the supply will degrade the Siliphos. Its period of effectiveness would be less.

Is it easy to fit?

Yes, very. Fitting should take no more than 30 minutes.

What if there is hardly any pipework to fit it on?

That’s no problem. All you need to do is re-locate the LimeStop away from the piping. You can route the piping both to and away from the LimeStop with flexible hoses, so you really need just over 3” of piping.

Can I fit it in a cupboard?

Yes, but not if the ambient temperature is above 30 degrees C for the same reasons as above. Also, fit it low down in the cupboard where the cold mains enters, as it would be the coolest part of the cupboard.

Will I still get limescale around my showerhead?

Most possibly, yes. This is because although that the Siliphos-effect will stop your shower scaling-up, 'still' water (water that doesn’t move) will be left on the showerhead and around taps etc. The effect will be lost and deposits may well occur. But these can simply be wiped away, as the deposits aren’t sticky.

What will the LimeStop protect?

The LimeStop is made for ‘mains’ water appliances, such as mains-pressure thermal store hot water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, shower mixer units, etc.

What about ‘Megaflow’ type units?

These use a store of hot water, but they are technically ‘heat banks’ and not thermal stores. We can only state that the sooner the water is used after running through the LimeStop, the better. The LimeStop TS is perfect to protect thermal store hot water cylinders.

What size ports has the LimeStop got?

The LimeStop is supplied with either 15mm or 22mm fittings - you choose.

Will my water pressure be reduced?

The LimeStop is a through-flow unit, and you would not see any noticeable drop in water pressure or flow after fitting.

Will the LimeStop withstand high water pressures?

Yes, it is a very robust unit, able to withstand 6 bar pressure, with twin ‘O’ rings. However, it is still essential that you install a pressure reducing valve prior to the LimeStop - set to 3 bar. We recommend a ‘Reliance’.

What is limescale?

It's dissolved rock. Rain water dissolves the calcium and magnesium out of the rock. This water is then treated and sent to your home. When the water is heated the dissolved particles re-solidify and stick to the walls of the heat exchanger. It will do this at low temperatures, but really begins at anything above 63 degrees C.

Is limescale harmful?

To your heating appliances, yes, very!  Even a tiny coating of it will reduce the efficiency of your appliance, meaning your energy bills will be higher. It also causes premature failure of key components. However, to your body, it is beneficial. Remember, water softeners remove this beneficial calcium, the LimeStop doesn’t.

Why is the LimeStop better than other limescale inhibitors?

The LimeStop requires no electricity or maintenance. It doesn't use questionable electromagnetic waves. It uses a time-proven material that we feel good enough to offer our performance guarantee of your money back. And you don’t have to fiddle with large 'O' rings and wet Siliphos - you simply replace it. You may be aware of a very similar unit to ours, but it requires 6-monthly topping up, with annual cleaning and Siliphos replacement.

*Do you guarantee that the LimeStop works?

Yes, we do. Our guarantee is that stated formally below. We believe all limescale inhibitors should carry a performance guarantee.  Don't buy one that hasn't got a money-back guarantee.

Have you ever had to give anyone their money back due to re-scaling?

No, never.

How can I get one?

Just click on a ‘BUY’ button above. Any questions, simply email us.

Do you give a discount if I buy more than one?

Yes, of course, just email us.

I have soft water, so surely I don’t need a LimeStop?

The LimeStop can even be used in soft water areas, as the Siliphos lays down a protective coating on the walls of the supply piping - thus preventing acidic-water attack and so-called ‘Blue Water’.

Why don’t you sell the LimeStop in plumber’s merchants?

Because by the time they have added their mark-up charge, it would make it too expensive. You get it at the cheapest possible price by buying direct from us. It should arrive within 2 days by Hermes.

We want to ensure that you are happy with our service, and that we have been fair and professional. And we ask that you too are fair in ordering products from us. Sometimes, packages go astray within the post. We have to claim against the courier in such circumstances (rare, though they are), and we would not be able to post you a replacement until we get confirmation from the courier that the item has indeed been lost. We ask you to be patient, and to work with us to resolve the problem. We would talk to you by phone to reassure you, and keep you up to date with any information we have. We would even give you the details of the courier to prove that the item had indeed been mislaid or lost.



Installation instructions:

It is imperative that you ensure your mains pressure water serving the LimeStop never exceeds 6 bar pressure, so we recommend that you install a ‘Pressure Reducing Valve’ prior to the installation - set to 3 bar. We recommend you Google ‘Reliance Predator pressure reducing valve’ (cost around £28 from JTM Plumbing). However, your water installation may already have a pressure reducing valve fitted (especially if you have a thermal store).

We recommend that you purchase your pipe fittings from a store such as ToolStation. 15mm push-fit elbows are just 80p. You should be able to get all you need to fit your LimeStop easily and quickly. They are open 7 days a week, and even on bank holidays.



On this 15mm installation, the cold mains enters from the left and goes first through the check valve (provided in the box). So you would need 2 x full-bore isolating valves (ToolStation code 14624) and four push-fit elbows (Toolstation code 46696). Your costs would therefore be:

15mm full-bore isolating valve x 2 @ £4.24 each = £8.48

15mm push-fit elbows x 4 @ 80p each = £3.20

1 metre of copper tube = £2.74 (minimum purchase 2 metres)

Total £14.42


This is a more-common installation - with the mains cold feed rising, perhaps in a cupboard:



IMPORTANT:  Fit your LimeStop so that it serves your house supply ONLY. Do not let it serve a garden tap, as the Siliphos inside would be wasted (unless your garden water use is VERY low), in which case it would be ok to let the LimeStop serve the tap.

Decide where your LimeStop is to be sited – given your mains water supply. Always fit the check valve, and isolating valves, as they make replacement of the unit in two years much easier. Whether your installed water pipes are horizontal or vertical, the LimeStop itself MUST be installed vertically. It’s preferable to let it stand on the base of a cupboard, but it’s essential to use the supplied fixing bracket, anyway (not shown in the diagrams for clarity). If you would prefer, you can ‘pipe’ your installation using flexible stainless steel tubes, though be sure to use tubes that are a minimum of 13mm bore (many are not!). If you are unsure of fitting it yourself, then get a quote from a plumber to install it. Be sure to choose a plumber that has been recommended to you by a family member or friend. For an easier installation, consider using push-fit copper fittings.


Replacement instructions:

Turn the incoming water valve (1) off

Open a tap - ensure pressure/flow fades

Now turn the other valve (2) off

Undo the two brass nuts either side of the LimeStop (place a towel underneath)

Unscrew the four retaining screws on the fixing bracket


Fit the new LimeStop to the bracket

Tighten the two brass connections

Turn valve (2) on

Turn valve (1) on

Turn tap off

Check connections for leaks
