The Affordable, DIY Solution to the Common Question of How to Soften Water at Home

how to soften water at home

Regardless of where you live, the question of how to soften water at home will likely cross your mind at some point.  There are many methods to consider, including water filtration systems and a water softener.  However, neither of these options are a hard water scale remover to deal with lime scale that is already present.  They both require ongoing maintenance and purchases (i.e. filters, salt, etc.).  And, in the case of water softeners, they put sodium in the water, which is not good for humans, pets or the environment.

The most affordable, do-it-yourself (DIY) solution for how to soften water at home is the ScaleBlaster electronic descaler.  Here’s why:

  1. Easy to install

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is easy to install (induction coil wraps externally around the pipe on the incoming water line) and requires no additional plumbing work in most cases.

  1. Requires No Ongoing Maintenance

Once you install the ScaleBlaster electronic descaler your job is done.  There is nothing more to buy and no additional maintenance required.

  1. Hard Water Scale Remover and Prevents New Lime Scale from Forming

The benefits of an electronic descaler are two-fold.  ScaleBlaster actually starts working on water scale removal the minute it is installed.  And, of course, there is nothing better when it comes to keeping lime scale from forming.

If you are tired of hard water scale wreaking havoc on your pipes and appliances, then consider ScaleBlaster.  Our homeowner models are available at Home Depot (online and in store) and Lowe’s (online).

Power Plants – Cut the Cooling Tower Biocide!

water scale removal

Cooling tower biocide and other chemicals used for water scale removal are not only costly, but they wreak havoc on the environment.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is a proven tool to solve water scale removal problems in power generation. Let’s take a look at some examples:

Power Plants Throughout China

Hundreds of SB-1200s, SB-1800s, SB-2000s, SB-2800s, SB-3600s and SB-4000s have been installed since 2004.

China is the world’s most populous country with more than 1.35 billion citizens. Their hundreds of large power plants include the Fuxin Power Plant, Liaoning Power Plant, Jilin Power Plant, Quinghemen Power Plant, Yuanbaoshan Power Plant and Bang Rong Power.  As with any power plant, limescale removal is an issue. The costs of downtime, labor and chemicals/cooling tower biocide used for water scale removal were astronomical until ScaleBlaster came into play.  In addition to pipe scale removal, the capital equipment that came in contact with water in the power plants also benefited from ScaleBlaster, saving millions of dollars. In fact, ScaleBlaster is solving water scale removal issues in power plants throughout China to the point that it is now considered a necessity in the industry.

Las Vegas Cogeneration Plant

In 2003, the very first ScaleBlaster industrial model – a SB-4000 – was installed on the pipeline.

This 238-megawatt power plant used warm water it produced to heat a massive 12-acre greenhouse that grew 40,000 lbs. of tomatoes. Due to the nature of heating water in an extremely hard water area, major scaling in the heating pipes was taking place, thus requiring a cost effective hard water scaler remover.  Using chemicals as a limescale remover was costly and required additional labor and downtime.  ScaleBlaster was an affordable alternative to chemicals.  Once ScaleBlaster was installed, the pipe scale removal issues became a thing of the past.

Forget all the chemicals and cooling tower biocide.  If you are seeking an economical and eco-friendly method to deal with water scale removal, the ScaleBlaster electronic descaler is exactly what you need to keep your operation running efficiently.

How an Electronic Descaler Can Reduce the Need for Cooling Tower Biocide

cooling tower biocide

A Cooling tower biocide is used to kill harmful algae and bacteria and eliminate limescale that eventually leads to corrosion.  The problem with cooling tower biocide is that it is comprised of chemicals and requires the expense of staff to maintain.  The costs of cooling tower biocide adds up over time, and, depending on the chemicals used, could actually be harmful to humans and the environment.

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler not only controls algae, bacteria and limescale, but it is also effective in pipe scale removal. Best of all, it requires NO chemicals and little maintenance.  An electronic descaler is easy to install and does not come into contact with the water.  It works by emitting sonic waves which naturally elevates and stabilizes the PH of the circulating water. Once the PH is stabilized, existing limescale is removed and the corrosive properties of the water is significantly reduced.

In a nutshell, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler operates using sonic waves. A cooling tower biocide, on the other hand, adds chemicals to the water. An electronic descaler raises the PH balance of the water, which increases cycles of concentration, thus saving water and reducing utility costs.  Best of all, it is a one-time investment vs. cooling tower biocide which needs to be purchased on a regular basis to effectively  control algae and bacteria.

Are you seeking to save money and/or reduce downtime and maintenance?  If so, consider the ScaleBlaster industrial electronic water descaler as an alternative to cooling tower biocide.  Our industrial specialists stand ready to help!!

Removing lime scale from your appliances is time consuming and costly. The best way to address lime scale is to prevent it.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is not only an effective lime scale remover, but it also stops lime scale buildup.

Lime scale is the direct result of hard water and it’s synonymous for leaving a white substance on fixtures and appliances such as coffee pots and dishwashers that utilize water. The ScaleBlaster electronic descaler is designed to get rid of that pesky lime scale forever. Let’s look at some other common ways people deal with lime scale.

  • Water Filters – Some people use water filters as a lime scale prevention strategy. While water filters are excellent, they are not efficient in lime scale removal.
  • Lemon juice in vinegar – while this can be an effective lime scale remover, it cannot prevent new scale from forming.
  • Chemical lime scale remover – A chemical lime scale remover may be effective in removing lime scale buildup, but it cannot prevent it. And, how safe are those chemicals, anyway??

While there are products that address lime scale, the most comprehensive, cost-effective and safe method is incorporating an electronic water descaler. Lime scale removal and prevention will help extend the life of your pipes and appliances and keep them working properly, improve the effectiveness of soaps and detergents and make your laundry brighter, softer and whiter.  As an added bonus, ScaleBlaster may even help save a few dollars on your monthly electric bill!

What is Limescale?

limescale removal

Limescale is a pesky substance commonly caused by calcium carbonate and the calcium and magnesium mineral ions found in hard water.  Limescale typically presents as an off-white, chalky deposit.  It is most noticeable on shower heads, faucets and appliances that utilize water.  Not only does limescale look bad, but it can wreak havoc in your home.  Let’s take a look at some problems that can be prevented and/or remedied by an electronic descaler / limescale remover.

Clogged pipes and reduced water flow

Limescale removal is necessary when pipes begin to clog as a result of limescale buildup.  Excess buildup not only reduces water flow, but in extreme cases, can result in the need to replace the pipes.  A scale remover such as the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler not only works to remove existing limescale, but it also prevents new limescale from forming.

Inefficiency with appliances

Limescale buildup causes sudden water pressure changes and other problems that compromise the efficiency of appliances.  Using an electronic descaler for limescale removal will not only improve the efficiency of your appliances, but also extend their life.

Stains

Ugly stains on sinks, bathtubs, sidewalks and in toilets are often caused by limescale. These stains are generally very difficult to remove.  An electronic water descaler not only prevents new limescale from forming but it is very effective when it comes to limescale removal.

Many products that contain a limescale remover are harsh and harmful to both the environment and your health.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is not only eco-friendly, but it is maintenance free and provides a healthy, long-term solution to hard water and limescale removal problems.
