Electronic Fluid Treatment Technology

The ENiGMA fluid conditioning system can be used in:-

Building Management

Reduce downtime using no chemical descalants and lower the replacement of equipment.

Swimming Pools

Improve water quality with reduced chlorine and water.


Use electronics and not chemicals to treat your mineral deposits and struvite build up.

Circular Economy

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's report invites you to imagine an economy in which today's goods are tomorrow's resources.

Limescale problems - water conditioner and electronic descaler

Limescale Problems

Heating hard water causes limescale to form in water systems which impedes heat transfer and narrows pipes.

Welcome to Fluid Conditioning Services Ltd (FCS) - Home of ENIGMA

In 1989, the directors of FCS  introduced the very first effective electronic water descaler unit for dealing with hard water and have since built an unrivalled reputation with our customers. The unit is aptly called the ENiGMA.

Hard water effects 70% of the United Kingdom (by population) and just about every other country in the world. It is good for our bodies but calcium carbonate, or limescale as it is better known, is not good for water systems.

It narrows pipes, blocks jets, reduces thermal efficiency and is expensive to remove. According to The Carbon Trust "1 mm layer of limescale will cause a 7% increase in energy input to the boiler to meet demand". In a moderately hard water area, 3 mm of limescale can form in months.

£Billions are wasted in lost production and downtime, early renewal of capital equipment, chemicals and increased energy and water costs. There are also major Health & Safety considerations, including increased risk of Legionella and other bacteria proliferation.

Our technology has been successfully developed which can permanently treat hard water scaling often without resorting to chemicals or expensive water softening equipment.

The ENiGMA Fluid Conditioning System provides a proven, non-intrusive, environmentally friendly and cost-effective method to reduce hard water problems and costs.

Hard Water Problems

Approximately 60% of us in the UK live in Hard Water areas.  This means that there are high levels of calcium present in the water we drink, wash in and use to heat our homes.  

This calcium is healthy for us.  However, when the water is heated, it attaches to the nearest surface causing scale build ups which:-

  • Increase our heating costs
  • Increase the need for appliance maintenance
  • Leave unsightly calcium stains on surfaces
