    Problem with watering system 13th Jun 17 at 2:03 PM
    We live in a hard water area. Just come back from a week away and a couple of our drippers have stopped working due to limescale and hanging basket looking very distressed. Any solutions?

    There are systems that work from a water butt with roof collected water, or a large bag which one fills with the same, or bottled water.

    Another level up is whole house water softening.

    Or you can do as I did and move to a soft water area. Wouldn't go back either!
