Residential Hard Water Treatment Options - A Comparison of Residential Hard Water Treatment Options

(Part One)

Our next series of articles will take a look at some popular hard water treatment options available to homeowners.  No doubt, hard water wreaks havoc on your pipes and appliances.  When this happens, exploring residential hard water solution options is a good place to start.

There are two primary areas a residential hard water solution should address: water scale removal and prevention.  Finding a solution that prevents lime scale from forming and is also an effective lime scale remover is imperative to ensure existing problems are addressed.

Some homeowners choose filtration as their primary residential hard water solution.  A quality whole home water filtration system can be effective in filtering out rust, algae, sediment and some contaminants.  However, the minerals that clog pipes, wreak havoc on appliances and make water scale removal necessary still exist. Water filtration systems do not remove hard water minerals or lime scale, thus an additional lime scale remover would also be required to address water scale removal. Filters also do not resolve the hardness of the water. Whole home water filters can be extremely expensive and require ongoing maintenance.

An electronic water descaler is different from filtration in that it not only prevents new scale from forming, but it is also an effective lime scale remover.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler actually changes the size, shape and charge of calcium molecules, which inhibits lime scale from forming on pipes, appliances and fixtures that come in contact with water.  Best of all, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is affordable, easy to install and requires no ongoing maintenance.

Our next article will compare an electronic water descaler with a water softener as a residential hard water solution. If you are ready to kick other hard water treatment options to the curb and go with the single solution that provides both water scale removal and prevention, then ScaleBlaster is the product for you.  It is available at Home Depot (in-store and online) and online at Lowe’s and Costco.
