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!

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.

cooling tower biocide

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!!

How Hard Water Scale Removal Can Improve the Quality of Your Home

Part 1

hard water scale removal

Many homeowners are unaware of the vast problems caused by limescale.  Limescale forms from the calcium carbonate and calcium and magnesium mineral ions that are found in hard water.  As limescale builds up over time, it starts to cause problems throughout the home.  One of the most cost effective, efficient and safe ways to eliminate existing limescale and prevent limescale from forming is to use an electronic descaler. Let’s take a look at how hard water scale removal can improve the quality of your home:

Limescale eliminator

Eliminating existing limescale is extremely important when it comes to preserving the health of your home. An electronic descaler not only prevents limescale from forming, but it is also an excellent limescale eliminator.  Once installed on the incoming waterline of your home, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler goes to work.  An oscillating electronic field changes the size, shape and charge of calcium molecules, making it impossible for limescale to form inside pipes and helping remove existing water scale.

Damage to Appliances

Limescale buildup wreaks havoc on appliances.  It causes them to lose efficiency and also decreases their lifespan. An electronic descaler helps preserve the life on any appliance that comes in contact with hard water.

Save on Water Heating Costs

Hard water scale removal will help your water heater run more efficiently.  An electronic water descaler not only saves you on water heating costs, but also helps preserve the life of your water heater.

When it comes to tackling hard water problems, the ScaleBlaster electric descaler is considered the industry gold standard.  Next month, we will discuss more ways that hard water scale removal can improve the quality of your home.
