Benefits of Reducing the Effects of Hard Water

Hard water treatment is essential for homeowners desiring to avoid the negative effects it has on both the body and appliances/fixtures in your home. If your home is new, installing a water conditioning system – such as ScaleBlaster – can prevent scale from building up in your pipes. If you were unable to prevent hard water damage before it started, don’t fret.  An electronic water conditioner is also effective for lime scale removal.   Let’s take a look at how ScaleBlaster is effective for preventing hard water damage and also for hard water treatment:

Hair and Skin

One of the most noticeable reasons to consider hard water treatment is that the soap and shampoo you use in the shower does not lather like it should. This can leave you feeling dirty even after you take a shower. A water conditioning system not only allows the soap and shampoo to produce a nice lather, but, you also save money because you use less of it.

Appliances and Fixtures

ScaleBlaster is an effective lime scale remover.  Over time, lime scale buildup on your pipes has a negative effect on your dishwasher and other appliances that come in contact with water. Hard water causes a white film that can be seen on dishes and household fixtures such as showerheads and faucets.  Taking steps to prevent hard water damage is important because lime scale buildup also reduces the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances.

Laundry

Another reason to prevent hard water damage is the possibility of it causing stains on your laundry. When you use the ScaleBlaster water conditioner, you no longer need to worry about stains and you can use less laundry detergent to get your clothes nice and clean.

ScaleBlaster has a nice selection of residential models to fit any home.  Be sure to check them out either online or at Home Depot.

Whether you are on a well or a municipal water system, chances are you have hard water running through your home.  As we have discussed in previous articles, hard water causes limescale buildup, damages appliances and is unhealthy for you and your family.  People often ask, “what is the best water filter for hard water?” In reality, the best water filter for hard water is not a filter at all. it. If you want to get rid of existing limescale and prevent new limescale from forming, an electronic water descaler is the ideal solution. An electronic water conditioner like ScaleBlaster – which also acts as a limescale remover – will pay for itself over and over again.

Use Less Soaps and Detergents

An electronic water conditioner system keeps limescale from forming, resulting in the need for less laundry detergent and soap for bathing and cleaning.

Extend the Life of Your Plumbing

Limescale buildup clogs pipes over time, slowing and sometimes even stopping the water flow. Replacing plumbing is costly, and requires tearing into the yard and sometimes even the walls.

An electronic water conditioner prevents the accumulation of limescale by emitting sonic waves that stop calcium molecules from adhering the walls of your pipes.  Investing in an electronic water descaler can save you thousands of dollars in plumbing costs alone.

Preserve the Integrity of Your Fixtures and Appliances

Every appliance and fixture that touches water in your home is susceptible to hard water damage.  Installing an electronic water conditioner like ScaleBlaster on the incoming pipe of your home prevents that annoying white limescale buildup that reduces the efficiency of appliances and stains your water faucets and fixtures.

What You Don’t See Can Hurt Your Home

What You Don’t See Can Hurt Your Home

The previous article discussed how to determine the hardness of the water in your home.  Today, we will explore how what you don’t see can cause major issues.  We talked about how limescale buildup on appliances, fixtures, tubs and sinks is a sign of hard water problems.  This type of limescale buildup can generally be handled using a cleaner designed specifically for calcium and limescale. However, it is what you don’t see that can really do some damage.

Have you ever watched home remodeling and/or house flipping shows on television?  If so, you are probably familiar with scenes where the homeowners are faced with replacing their indoor plumbing and pipes due to limescale buildup. Yes, believe it or not, calcium and limescale can build up in your pipes over time to the point of actually blocking water flow.  This results in costly repairs and/or re-plumbing the entire home.

What is so incredible about ScaleBlaster is that is actually “blasts” the current limescale buildup on your pipes, then prevents new scale from forming.  It may take some time for ScaleBlaster to eliminate existing limescale – approximately 90 days for the average home – but once it is eliminated, it will remain gone for as long as you have ScaleBlaster installed. And, let’s not forget to mention that you can also go back to cleaning with everyday cleaners versus harsher ones designed to cut through limescale and calcium.

ScaleBlaster is affordable and easy to install.  A small investment now can save you tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention many headaches, in the future. Check out our residential installation video to learn more.

How Do I Know if I Have Hard Water?

How Do I Know if I Have Hard Water?

Most everyone has hard water.  This is especially true if you live in the continental United States.   The calcium hardness level of your water does vary depending on where you live.  Our U.S. Water Hardness Map is helpful in determining if you live in a region with slightly hard or rocklike hard water, or somewhere in between. Well water is generally harder than city or municipal water. There are several ways to determine the level of hard water in your home:

  1. Limescale buildup on your appliances, fixtures, tubs, sinks, etc. is a tell-tale sign of hard water issues. Watch these videos from the DIY Network and HGTV to learn more.
  1. Hard water testing – if you live in an area with municipal or city water, they conduct regular testing and can provide you with information on calcium hardness. Some municipalities even make the information available on their website.
  1. Pick up your own hard water testing kit – you can test the water yourself using a kit available at a pool supply store. You can also bring in a sample of your water to a pool store with in-house water testing capabilities. This is especially important for homes using well water.

Everyone has hard water to some extent.  Regardless of how hard your water is, ScaleBlaster can prevent limescale formation.  This is important for your health and for the health of your appliances, fixtures and pipes.  Be sure to read our next article titled, What You Don’t See Can Hurt Your Home.

Wastewater

How ScaleBlaster is Used in Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater treatment plants need effective lime scale removal treatment to run efficiently.  Often times, a commercial water softener is used to combat lime scale and other problems associated with wastewater treatment. However, commercial water softeners are costlier, require lots of maintenance and come with their own set of issues.  Water treatment plants are discovering the benefits of using an electronic water descaler such as ScaleBlaster. Let’s examine the primary reasons why wastewater treatment plants are choosing ScaleBlaster over chemical methods:

  • Maintenance and labor free
  • Removes and controls lime scale
  • Prevent scale deposits on pumps, especially when soda ash is used to treat low pH
  • Prevents calcification of the resin bed
  • May reduce polymer usage and increase dewatering capabilities

Water Conditioner How it Works

Water Conditioning – How it Works

Hard water and well water can wreak havoc on your home. Limescale buildup damages pipes, appliances, fixtures and anything that comes into contact with water.  A house water descaler  – also known as an electronic water conditioner – is an excellent and ecofriendly water softener alternative.

Industrial Water Treatment

Industrial Water Treatment – Key Benefits

ScaleBlaster has many benefits in the industrial water treatment field.  The main feature of ScaleBlaster is that it can provide lime scale removal without the need of hazardous chemicals and intensive labor.  ScaleBlaster can significantly reduce the need to use chemicals for the prevention of corrosion and scale.   Lime scale removal can take place when the ScaleBlaster unit is installed on the incoming water line entering the building or equipment.  A signal cable is wrapped around the outside of the pipe and never comes in direct contact with the water.  ScaleBlaster is an eco-friendly alternative for hard water treatment systems.   ScaleBlaster allows for increased cycles of concentration which naturally and gently elevates the pH of the re-circulating water, thereby rendering the water less corrosive.  This will result in huge water savings while improving the efficiency as ScaleBlaster keeps heat transfer surfaces free from scale and allowing systems to operate under optimal design conditions.

ScaleBlaster will modify the scale-forming ions so they do not adhere to each other, the pipe walls, tubes, jets and heat transfer surfaces.  It helps control algae and bacteria and results in huge energy savings.  Existing scale is also removed and never returns.  ScaleBlaster will extend the life of capital equipment, thus maximizing the return on capital investment.
