Purchasing ScaleBlaster for Your Business - Justifying Purchasing ScaleBlaster for Your Business

(part two)

We are continuing our series on helping business owners, purchasing agents, managers and foreman justify the purchase of the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler over other types of water decalcification systems. One major advantage an electronic water descaler has over other solutions is that it improves the efficiency of heating and cooling circuits while also increasing cycles of concentration / reducing blowdown water.

Today, we will compare ScaleBlaster to two other types of water decalcification systems and processes – water softeners and chemicals (i.e. chemical scale control):

Water Softeners vs. Electronic Water Descaler

Water softeners require a lot of water and salt to operate.  They are expensive to purchase and maintain.  Water softeners discharge chlorides and are intrusive to the water system.  ScaleBlaster not only prevents new scale from forming, but it also is effective in pipe scale removal.  Therefore, no separate lime scale remover needs to be purchased. An electronic water descaler is an affordable, one-time investment that requires little maintenance, no chemicals and easily mounts on a wall.

Chemicals vs. Electronic Water Descaler

Chemicals, including cooling tower biocide, are not only costly, but also a recurring expense.  Chemicals also present a hazard when stored. An electronic water descaler is effective in pipe scale removal and prevention without using harmful chemicals.  There is also no need to purchase a separate lime scale remover.  A one-time investment in ScaleBlaster is the affordable, eco-friendly alternative to harmful chemicals such as cooling tower biocide.

There are many water decalcification systems to choose from, but only one offers lasting cost savings and benefits. Contact your nearest commercial or industrial dealer to learn more about how the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler can work for your business.

We are continuing our series on comparing different types of hard water treatment options.  It is important to note that an effective and ideal residential hard water solution will handle both pipe scale removal and prevention. You should not have to purchase a separate lime scale remover. Our previous article compared an electronic water descaler to whole home water filtration systems.  This article will discuss water softeners.

Water softeners are another residential hard water solution some homeowners consider when researching hard water treatment options.  Water softeners replace calcium with salt.  This can be problematic for pets and people on salt restricted diets. Water softeners are also not effective in pipe scale removal.  If you are dealing with existing pipe scale, an additional lime scale remover will be required.  When it comes to hard water treatment options, a water softener is one of the most expensive to purchase and maintain. It also requires a lot of floor space, which is another reason why some eliminate it as a possible residential hard water solution. Water softeners also discharge chlorides into the waste stream and tend to increase water and sewer bills.

When it comes to hard water treatment options, an electronic water descaler has significant benefits over a water softener. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is not only effective in pipe scale removal, but it also prevents new scale from forming. There is no need to purchase an additional lime scale remover.  It is small, easily mounts on a wall, does not require any additional water, and is salt and chemical free.

If you are ready to get serious about a residential hard water solution, then look no further. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is all you need. Our residential models can be purchased at Home Depot (in-store and online) and online at Lowe’s and Costco.

(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.

Part Three

We are continuing our series on problems that hard water causes in the home.  When hard water issues arise, many homeowners start to research hard water treatment options.  Here are a few more reasons why you may want to incorporate a residential hard water solution in your home.

Soap Scum

Soap scum is not only annoying, but it can lead to numerous issues.  Soap scum is essentially calcium deposits left behind when water evaporates.  It leaves spots on the dishes in the dishwasher and makes cleaning the kitchen and bathroom more challenging.  Not all water decalcification systems are effective in pipe scale removal. An electronic water descaler not only is efficient in water scale removal, but it also prevents new scale from forming.

Appliances Not Working Properly

Limescale can affect every appliance in your home that comes in contact with water.  When scale deposits clog pipes, valves and other important components, appliances become less efficient and also wear out quicker.  Water scale removal and prevention will help avoid unnecessary wear and tear.

Potential Health Impacts

The National Institutes of Health lists several problems potentially caused by hard drinking water including cardiovascular disease, cancer and reproductive issues, just to name a few.  Read the full article.

If you are exploring hard water treatment options, the ScaleBlaster residential hard water solution is exactly what you need. There are many water decalcification systems on the market, however, ScaleBlaster is the most affordable and efficient residential hard water solution you can buy.  A one-time investment in a ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler will save you thousands of dollars in future appliance replacements and/or repairs, eliminate pesky soap scum and keep your family healthy.

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?
