Each of us at least once heard of this"Savior" of washing machines, as "Calgon". Even those who have no relation to washing and to the household as a whole, remember a sensational advertisement. Indeed, "Calgon," which is highly controversial, is an extremely popular product. For many years, this remedy has been used for every wash, simply by convincing convincing advertising. Everyone knows the problem of scale, and "Calgon", according to the manufacturer, is able to permanently rid us of these inconveniences and extend the life of the washing machine.

- savings for washing and electricity;

How to use?
The manufacturer claims that the product can beapply to any type of laundry: white, colored, etc. "Calgon" is combined with any powder, as well as with liquid gels for washing. It is recommended to use it every time. The product must be filled into the main compartment of the dispenser after you have already put the powder there. It is best to use "Calgon 2 in 1". Reviews of some buyers say that it not only prevents the formation of scale, but also neutralizes the salts present in the water.
Is scab so terrible?
At the sight of a large layer of scale scaledfrom advertising means "Calgon" unwittingly there is concern for his own machine. After him there is a desire to prevent the formation of a raid and to acquire a miracle cure. In fact, it turns out that a layer of scale can not be formed in such a way in a washing machine. The insignificant quantity that, one way or another, appears in the course of washing, can be easily removed with ordinary powder.
It turns out that the problem is not so terrible, as the manufacturer of the means of "Kalgon" draws. Experts' feedback demonstrates that this product is not as necessary as it seems at first glance.
Main causes of breakdowns
Despite the fact that advertising means the mainthe cause of the machine's failure is called scum, experts dealing with repair, note that this is not so. According to them, most often the device ceases to function correctly due to:
- wear of parts and components;
- clogs (small metal parts, such as clips, buttons, pebbles, slip through the drum);
- breakage of TEN (this is already associated with scum).
As we see, a malfunction of the heatingthe device because of the accumulation of scale on its surface is only the third most frequent cause of breakdowns, which is at variance with the opinion of the manufacturer of the Kalgon tool. Customer feedback indicates that the raid is formed even with the constant use of the product. Therefore, we can safely talk about his helplessness in the fight against this problem. Experts also note that the use of the product not only does not affect the washing machine positively, but, on the contrary, has a negative impact on it. Rubber parts are worn out due to some components that make up the Kalgon tool.
«Calgon 2 in 1»: reviews
Most people who constantly usedmeans in the hope of keeping their washing machine intact and safe, are ultimately disappointed. Everything happens like this: the machine breaks down, the specialist comes, and it turns out that some parts have become unusable due to scaling. Surprising owners have no limits, because they used the "Calgon"! Note that the coating on the elements of the machine appears in those cases, if you often erase at high temperatures. It turns out that even "Calgon 2in1" can not cope with this problem.
Reviews indicate that the remedy isjust a waste of money. Those who often faced the problem of the appearance of scale, advised not to throw the finances to the wind, buying various funds, such as the alleged saving "Calgon". In their opinion, one should pay attention to water hardness and the most frequently used washing regime.
Of course, there is another side to the coin. Some people who use the remedy remain quite happy with the effect. Buyers, whose machines do not break for a long time, rejoice and praise the properties of the product. However, in most cases this is not due to Kalgon, but to the fact that the owner uses the device correctly, takes care of it, intelligently chooses washing regimes or simply the water in his apartment is less stiff than some. That's the whole secret!
A variety of tests conducted by scientists,demonstrate the inefficiency of the product. Experts' reviews compare its use with the addition of sugar in honey, that is, with the case completely useless. It turns out that the positive feedback from consumers is nothing more than their blind faith in the effectiveness of Kalgon.
On average, the "Calgon" pack can be purchased inprice range from 150 to 200 rubles per 500 grams. This amount of funds with constant use, you will miss for a month. Thus, in a year you will spend about 2000 rubles. At first glance, not so much, but if you think about the real effect of the product, it turns out that the amount is impressive. If you consider that the replacement of TEN will cost you less, on average - no more than 1300 rubles. It should be noted that without any purges and preventive maintenance, the heater is regularly used for 3 to 5 years. It turns out that it is easier to change the heating device once every three years than to spend money on the useless "Calgon".
However, if you still want to somehow protect your machine from scale, it can be done on your own at home. To do this, it is sufficient to mix sodium tripolyphosphate and soda.
Summing up, we can conclude that not such aAnd the necessary production is "Calgon". Comments from consumers and professionals in the repair and production of washing machines show that the tool not only fails to cope with the task, but also has a negative impact on the quality of some important rubber parts of the machine. In any case, only you can make the final choice. You decide who to believe - the words of manufacturers who are interested in increasing sales and providing all kinds of certificates that allegedly guarantee quality, or perhaps comments of real people who have used the tool for a long time and can objectively judge its properties and tell about costs that did not justify themselves .
In any case, with "Kalgon" or without itIt is necessary to take care of your washing machine and use it correctly. Before you start washing, check to see if there are any small parts in the pockets of clothing that can slip through the drum and damage the "insides" of the device. Pay attention to the hardness of the water, if the level is much higher than the norm, it may be necessary to take appropriate measures. And of course, it's important to choose the right washing mode. It is not necessary that things rotate in boiling water, it is enough to average the temperature, so that everything is washed off qualitatively.
