Residential Hard Water Solution: ScaleBlaster vs. Water Softeners

ScaleBlaster vs Water Softeners - Residential Hard Water Solution: ScaleBlaster vs. Water Softeners

When it comes to hard water treatment options, water softeners are often the first that come to mind.  Marketing and advertising has helped them become a popular residential hard water solution. At Clearwater Enviro, rather than spending money on big ad buys, we prefer to invest in our customers and products.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler has been a reliable, effective and affordable residential hard water solution for more than three decades. Let’s take a look at some advantages ScaleBlaster has over water softeners.

Limescale Eliminator

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is effective in both water scale removal / pipe scale removal and prevents new scale from forming.

Eco-Friendly

Water softeners are salt based.  The salt they discharge is not removed by wastewater treatment systems and is eventually emitted back into the water stream.  ScaleBlaster requires no salt or chemicals.  It is a natural limescale eliminator that works by changing the calcium molecules in the water.

Easy to Install

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is extremely easy to install.  Simply wrap the coil on the incoming water line, plug it in, and it will get to work!

Part two of our series will cover more advantages ScaleBlaster has over water softeners and why an electronic water descaler is the preferred residential hard water solution. If you are exploring hard water treatment options, look no further.  ScaleBlaster residential models are available in-store and online at Home Depot and online at Lowe’s and Costco.

ScaleBlaster – Helping Hospitals on Many Levels

Helping Hospitals - ScaleBlaster - Helping Hospitals on Many Levels

Part Two

We are continuing our series on how the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler benefits hospitals.  Our previous article discussed how it helped enhance laundry operations, improve the performance of piping systems, and is one of the most effective hard water treatment options when it comes to maintaining both patient and visitor bathrooms.  Today, we will look at three more ways ScaleBlaster helps improve hospital operations.

Air Handlers and Condensers

Air handlers and condensers that are clogged with limescale do not perform at optimal levels.  This puts much wear and tear on the system and also increases electricity costs.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is a limescale eliminator that not only promotes existing pipe scale removal, but also prevents new scale from forming.

Cooling Towers

Cooling towers are often maintained with a cooling tower biocide (i.e. chemicals).  These chemicals are not eco-friendly and can be harmful. Hospitals experience a tremendous savings in maintenance, labor and water usage as the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler reduces scale build-up, bacteria, biofilm, corrosion and algae blooms.

Hot Water Heaters and Boilers

Because ScaleBlaster is also a limescale eliminator, it will allow for water scale removal on your existing systems and then works to reduce scale formation on boiler fire tubes, condensation tanks, pumps, pipes, heating coils and valves. This saves on chemical and maintenance costs while lowering electricity use and extending the life of equipment.

How Do I Know If I Have a Hard Water Problem?

Have a Hard Water Problem - How Do I Know If I Have a Hard Water Problem?

It can be difficult to know if you have a hard water problem, especially when you move into a new home.  Testing your water and/or obtaining water reports from your municipal water provider is a good place to start.  If your home is new and you have hard water, it is advisable to install a residential hard water solution before you begin to have problems.  Let’s take a look at some common signs of hard water.  If you are experiencing any of these, you should consider installing the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler right away to prevent hard water issues from escalating.

Crusty Buildup

If you notice a crusty buildup in faucets, showerheads, drains and any fixtures exposed to water, then you need to start considering hard water treatment options.

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler prevents calcium carbonate from adhering to pipes and fixtures, thus keeping new scale from forming. ScaleBlaster is an effective lime scale remover as well.

Appliances Not Working Efficiently

Lime scale buildup can cause appliances that come into contact with water (i.e. washer, dishwasher, coffee maker, etc.) to be less efficient.  Less efficient appliances have to work harder and often require more electricity to operate. The ScaleBlaster residential hard water solution is an effective lime scale remover. It will address existing pipe scale and keep new scale from forming.
