Answering Your Residential Hard Water Solution Questions

Part Three

Are you looking for hard water treatment options?  If so, you are probably familiar with how an electronic water descaler works.  ScaleBlaster is the industry leading electronic water descaler offering residential, commercial and industrial models.  Other companies have tried to develop similar products, but no other product is as effective in water scale removal and prevention as ScaleBlaster. We’ve been answering your questions about ScaleBlaster so you can effectively compare it to other types of water decalcification systems and hard water treatment options.

Does ScaleBlaster Help Reduce Bacteria?

Limescale in your pipes is the primary breeding ground for bacteria.  ScaleBlaster is effective in both pipe scale removal and preventing new limescale from forming.  Once there is no breeding ground for the bacteria to propagate, it can no longer grow.

Where Does the Scale Go Once It’s Removed?

If you have existing scale in your pipes, the water scale removal process will begin once ScaleBlaster is installed.  An electronic water descaler gradually dissolves scale by each molecule where it is eventually absorbed by the water.  During the first few weeks, you may notice a slight increase in scale on your faucets and/or showerheads.  Once pipe scale removal is complete, your limescale problem will be resolved and it should not re-occur.

How Much Electricity Does ScaleBlaster Use?

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is one of the most energy efficient residential hard water treatment options on the market today.  It utilizes approximately 15 watts of electricity.  Depending on the electricity cost in your area, the average home will utilize about $8.76/year in electricity to operate ScaleBlaster.

When it comes to hard water treatment options, there is a lot to consider.  ScaleBlaster is more effective and affordable than other types of water decalcification systems on the market.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler has a 90-day money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose by giving it a try!  ScaleBlaster residential models can be purchased at Home Depot (in-store and online), Lowes (online) and Costco (online).

Electronic Water Descaler

ScaleBlaster Pro Series Model

Electronic Water Descaler

The ScaleBlaster SB-Max Pro is an electronic water descaler designed for larger homes and often sought by professionals who work with homeowners who need a residential hard water solution.  It is unsurpassed as a hard water scale remover and is incredibly effective in preventing new limescale from forming.

The ScaleBlaster SB-Max Pro electronic water descaler works on copper, PVC, CPVC and PEX pipe.  It can be used on homes up to 5,000 square feet for both indoor and outdoor installations.  It is considered to be 60% more powerful than the SB-75 residential model, which is why it can handle calcium harness levels of up to 40 grains per gallon (gpg) or 684 parts per million (ppm).

It is important to note that with an electronic water descaler, the water hardness level and total dissolved solids will remain the same.  This is because ScaleBlaster is a water conditioner, not a water softener.  Water softeners remove calcium from the water.  ScaleBlaster does not.  Calcium is good for the metabolism so removing it has no benefit.

ScaleBlaster is an effective hard water scale remover that does not rely on salt or chemicals.  It dissolves the scale so in cases of heavy buildup, initial pipe scale removal may take some time.  The good news is that in addition to being a hard water scale remover, ScaleBlaster is extremely effective in limescale prevention.

If you are a professional who is seeking to find an effective residential hard water solution for your customers, we can help.  The SB-Max Pro is available through our USA and international dealers.

Electronic Water Descaler

Advantages of Installing an Electronic Water Descaler Instead of a Water Softener

Electronic Water Descaler

Part Two

When it comes to shopping for a hard water scale remover and limescale prevention solution, the two main choices for homeowners are an electronic water descaler and a water softener.  We are continuing our two-part series on the advantages of installing an electronic water descaler.

Eco-Friendly

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler requires no salt or chemicals to be effective as a hard water scale remover and limescale prevention solution. Water softeners, on the otherhand, use salt and chemicals that are discharged into the waste stream and unable to be removed by wastewater treatment facilities.  ScaleBlaster is an eco-friendly water softener alternative.

Overall Effects on the Water

Water softeners make skin feel dry.  The water also feels slippery and soap suds are difficult to remove.  Once you install ScaleBlaster, the pipe scale removal process begins. You will gradually start to notice that your skin feels softer, the water feels silkier and soap suds easily wash away.  The full benefits of ScaleBlaster will be apparent after a few months.

Healthy

Water softeners add salt to the water. Added salt in drinking water is not recommended for people on salt restricted diets or pets. Water softeners also remove all calcium from the water.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler does not require chemicals to be an effective limescale remover.  It also does an excellent job in preventing new scale from forming.

Cost Savings

ScaleBlaster is a residential hard water solution that is much more cost effective than purchasing a water softener system.  Furthermore, ScaleBlaster is a one-time investment that is not only effective in pipe scale removal / water scale removal, but also prevents new scale from forming all together.  Another advantage an electronic water descaler has over water softeners is that it requires no additional water to operate and does not use filters.  The water savings alone makes an electronic water descaler a sound investment.

ScaleBlaster and Amusement Parks

limescale remover

Amusement parks utilize thousands of gallons of water a day.  Hard water treatment is necessary to keep rides and operations running smoothly.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner is not only an effective limescale remover, but it also prevents new limescale from forming.  ScaleBlaster is an integral part of the hard water treatment strategy for many amusement parks worldwide.  Let’s take a look at a few popular U.S. theme parks that have incorporated ScaleBlaster into their hard water treatment plans:

Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Six Flags in Fiesta Texas (near San Antonio) needed an effective limescale remover for their Tornado ride, which was experiencing significant limescale formation inside the funnel where water was flowing.  Limescale was restricting the water flow rate and negatively affecting the enjoyment of the ride.  The Tornado also experienced a lot of downtime due to maintennance.  Labor and a chemical limescale remover were costing money and taking their toll. They needed to explore hard water treatment options so they installed a ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner on the 3” water line. The results? It not only proved to be an effective limescale remover but prevented new scale from forming.  No more costly labor, chemicals or downtime due to limescale!

Wet ‘n’ Wild – Hawaii and Las Vegas

Wet ‘n’ Wild is known for its massive swimming pools and thrilling water slides.  Hawaii and Las Vegas are both areas that experience hard water.  Limescale buildup was slowing down riders on the fiberglass slides and restricting water flow in the tubing area.  Affordable hard water treatment options were explored and it was determined that the ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner was the most effective limescale remover and limescale prevention option to consider.  Multiple ScaleBlaster units were installed and the limescale issues at both parks have been completely resolved.

Next month we will discuss how ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioners are utilized in popular hotels.  Want to learn more about how ScaleBlaster can benefit your corporation or industrial operation?  Give one of our commercial specialists a call today!

ScaleBlaster vs. Water Softeners

water conditioners

We are often asked how electronic water conditioners compare to water softeners.  There are some significant benefits and differences.  First, the ScaleBlaster water conditioner is a lime scale remover.  It actually works to remove existing scale in addition to preventing new lime scale from forming.  A water softener is not an effective lime scale remover.  Let’s take a look at some other important differences between the two hard water treatment options:

Affordability

The ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner is a one-time investment that never requires maintenance. Water softeners are expensive to purchase and require ongoing maintenance.  And, unlike water softeners which can increase water and sewer bills, electronic water conditioners do not require additional water usage.

Chemicals

Water conditioners require no chemicals to achieve lime scale removal or to prevent new limescale from forming.  Water softeners require salt, which is not ideal for pets or people on reduced sodium diets.  Water conditioners are considered a “green” product, whereas water softeners discharge chlorides into the waste stream.

Convenience

The ScaleBlaster residential electronic water conditioner is compact, mounts on the wall, and easily installs on the incoming water line.  Water softeners often require special piping and take up a significant amount of floor space.

Added Benefits

There are added benefits to using the ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner for lime scale removal and prevention. Homeowners who use ScaleBlaster report that their water feels “silkier”, skin feels softer and soap suds easily wash away. Water softeners tend to dry out the skin and make the water feel slippery. Soap suds take extra time to remove.

If you have been debating between purchasing an electronic water conditioner or water softener, we encourage you to consider ScaleBlaster.  It’s affordable and readily available online at Lowe’s and online and in-stores at Home Depot.  Check it out today!
