Fighting and Preventing Limescale on Shower Cubicle

Postby showerwall » Thu Aug 27, 2015 8:59 am

I am redoing my 20 year old bathroom in London. Limescale deposits on the corner shower enclosure glass walls and metalwork has been a recurrent problem since day one.

Reading brochures I have seen references to such things as Showerlux "Glass Shield", Kudos' "Lifeshield" and Phoenix "Easy-Clean" which all claim to reduce limescale deposits.

I am somewhat sceptical, do any of these actually work and if not, what can I do to stop the shower cubicle (particularly the metalwork) becoming horribly stained with limescale?

Thanks for any helpful replies :)

Simply Build It

I'm sure that this things do work - but like you I'm a little skeptical too.

There is no substitute to regular cleaning with a limescale remover. The little and often approach works best.

Another approach is to 'remove' the limescale by softening the water. This is a little more involved, but have other benefits such as improving the taste of the water. This is a softener that we have used in the past, as it is a DIY fit, cheap and comes with a lifetime warranty:
