Negative Aspects of Water Softeners - Negative Aspects of Water Softeners

We are continuing our series discussing some of the negative aspects of water softeners in comparison to the ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaling system. Our previous article covered how a water softener requires a large investment compared to the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system. We also discussed how water softeners require professional installation which can also be quite costly. Today, we will look at two more downsides of choosing a water softener vs. an electronic descaling system.

Takes Up Floor Space

A water softener takes up tons of space either on the side of your house or in your garage. The same is true for an industrial water softener. The ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaling system are compact and can be conveniently mounted on a wall.

Increases Water and Sewer Bills

Water softeners require additional water usage, which naturally results in more water consumption and higher water and sewer bills. The ScaleBlaster hard water descaler uses no water and is extremely effective in water scale removal and prevention.

Our next article will cover more negative aspects of water softeners when compared to a residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaling system.

The ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is available in both residential and commercial models.  Our ecofriendly water softener alternative is a limescale eliminator that immediately goes to work on water scale removal. It also prevents new scale from forming. Homeowners wanting to purchase the ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler can do so online or in-store at Home Depot. It can also be purchased online at Lowes and Costco.

The Downside of Water Softeners - The Downside of Water Softeners

As we’ve discussed in a previous article, we have had homeowners tell us that their plumbing professional recommends a water softener instead of an electronic descaling system. We beg to differ, and we have dedicated the past four decades towards helping both homeowners and professionals deal with their hard water issues.

The ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is a hard water descaler that is effective in water scale removal. It is also a limescale eliminator that prevents new scale from forming. The ScaleBlaster hard water descaler comes in residential and commercial models. Our industrial hard water descaler is effective and can handle even the demands of large cooling towers.  In fact, industrial hard water descaling using a proven electronic water descaler such as the ScaleBlaster results in the reduced need for cooling tower biocide.

These are just a few of the many reasons why both homeowners and commercial / industrial entities are bypassing water softeners and choosing a residential electronic descaling system for their home and an industrial hard water descaler for their facilities. Our next series of article will take a closer look at some of the downsides of water softeners. Let’s get started.

Large Investment

Water softeners cost thousands of dollars and require an ongoing investment in both maintenance and chemicals. The ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaler models are not only affordable, but they do not require an ongoing investment and they save money in the long run.

Requires Professional Installation

Water softeners can cost hundreds of dollars in professional installation fees. The ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaling system do not require the services of a plumber to install. In most cases, homeowners can handle their own residential installation while commercial entities often enlist their in-house maintenance crew for installation.

Our next article will cover more downsides of water softeners in comparison to the benefits of a residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaling system.

The ScaleBlaster residential electronic descaling system can be purchased in-store and online at Home Depot, and online at Lowes and Costco.

“My plumber told me I needed to get a water softener instead of an electronic descaling system.” Ahh, yes. We hear this often. There are two primary reasons why homeowners are advised as such by their plumbing professional. It could be that their plumber is simply not familiar with how an electronic descaling system works. Or, it could be that their plumber gets a commission on each referral for a water softener system and/or on each one they install.

If your plumber recommends a water softener instead of an electronic water descaler, don’t hesitate to ask them why.  You may even wish to bring up some of the benefits of an electronic descaling system such as the fact that it is a limescale eliminator that is effective in water scale removal and prevents new scale from forming. An electronic water descaler is also an ecofriendly water softener alternative.

Would you like to learn more about the differences between an electronic descaling system and a water softener? Our next series of articles will discuss some of the downsides of water softeners. If your plumber wishes to learn more about the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler, or would like to inquire about how to become one of our professional dealers or wholesalers, we encourage them to give us a call or send us an e-mail at sales@scaleblaster.com.

Five Star Review from Homedepot.com:

I am a real estate appraiser and have seen this product in a few homes. Each time, the homeowner has spoken positively of it. When my softener was beginning to show signs (not going through the volume of salt like it usually does) of slowing down/age/malfunction and the water was feeling a harder, I decided to pick this up and give it a try. My wife, my daughter and I all have all noticed an immediate improvement in the water. Now 2 weeks later, the water feels as good as it ever has! I installed it right after the meter and it took about an hour to install. The hardest part was counting the number of “wraps” around the pipe. So far so good, we would certainly recommend the ScaleBlaster to a friend or neighbor with hard water.

Residential Tankless Water Heater Solutions

Tankless water heaters have become incredibly popular to use in the United States, and people have come to realize that hard water can cause severe damage when precautions are not taken to protect their real estate investments. Most of the United States is subjected to hard water problems, so quality tankless water heater descaler solutions are needed to prevent and remove calcium build-up that is caused by hard water. If measures are not taken to prevent calcium deposits, they will build up in the heat exchanger over a period of time. Time periods can vary depending on how bad the deposits are, but eventually they will shut down your entire system to where it will require maintenance in order to work.

Cleaning your heat exchanger with chemicals or vinegar is not a pleasurable experience, and there are better alternatives available. Installing ScaleBlaster is the perfect solution if you want to end scaling once and for all. ScaleBlaster is extremely cost effective and time effective as well. No cleaning is required, you will experience little to no down time, and you will no longer have to change expensive filters. In addition, you will no longer need an expensive water softener or the salt that goes along with it. ScaleBlaster is ecofriendly as well. You will no longer waste water or pollute water streams with brine. Browse our website for further information.
