In areas where hard water may occur, such as in the eastern and southern coastal regions of South Africa, the product lifespan could be reduced due to build-up of scale. Regular de-scaling should be carried out by a Zip Hydroboil service provider every 6 to 12 months depending on the severity of the conditions.
