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!

Things to Consider When Choosing an Industrial Lime Descaler

Cooling Tower Water Treatment in Power Generation Applications

Power generation plants rely on cooling towers, which require ongoing maintenance to remain effective. Installing an electronic water descaler for cooling tower water treatment reduces the need for cooling tower biocide and other harmful chemicals which degrade the overall integrity of the structure and its systems.

The water hardness scale plays a large part because cooling towers are designed to allow the “pure” water to evaporate while impurities remain.  The higher the water hardness scale, the more scale that is left behind.  This eventually leads to corrosion and other major problems. You may find this water hardness chart and water hardness map helpful in determining the hardness of the water in your area.

ScaleBlaster is an electronic water descaler that effectively works as a cooling tower water treatment system by eliminating existing limescale and prevents new limescale from forming. ScaleBlaster sends electromagnetic waves through the water pipe which change the properties of calcium molecules, thus preventing them from sticking to the inside walls.

Here is how ScaleBlaster benefits power generation plants:

Cooling Tower Water Treatment

ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on tower fill, sump tank, spray headers, valves, pumps and pipes.

Condensers & Chillers

ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on heat exchange surfaces.

Boilers

ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on boiler fire tubes, condensation tank, pumps, pipes, and valves.

Compressors

ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits on cooling surfaces.

Waste Water Treatment

ScaleBlaster controls lime scale deposits in tanks, pumps, pipes, valves and sensors.

Our industrial dealers can help you determine which ScaleBlaster model is best for you. They can also guide you in determining your calcium hardness level.

How Electronic Water Conditioners Work

How Electronic Water Conditioners Work

Lime scale buildup is common in plumbing and appliances that use hard water. Lime scale is not only unsightly, it is also extremely difficult to remove. Electronic water conditioners such as ScaleBlaster are extremely effective when it comes to removing lime scale and other unsightly build up.

How Electronic Water Conditioners Work

Electronic water conditioners work by generating inaudible signals that cause ions to collide with one another.  This causes the calcium crystals to grow until there are no more surface charges left to stick to any surface, including pipe walls.  ScaleBlaster is the preferred and most popular brand of electronic water conditioners.  It not only promotes hard water scale removal, but prevents lime scale buildup as well.

Benefits of Using Electronic Water Conditioners

Removing lime scale from your home’s pipes not only extends the life of your pipes, but appliances as well. Hard water scale prevention saves you lots of money and headaches in the long run.  Electronic water conditioners even work wonders on your skin and hair as you skin will feel smoother and hair will become more manageable.  And, less soap scum in the shower and bathtub is always a plus!

Electronic Water Conditioners – Affordable and Easy to Install!

ScaleBlaster is extremely easy to install on the incoming pipe of your home – no plumber needed! Combining this with the affordability of our new homeowner models makes ScaleBlaster an ideal solution to hard water scale removal and prevention.

Hard Water Solution

Factors to Consider when Buying a Water Conditioner

What You Need to Know

Once you have made the decision to purchase a ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner, there are a few things you need to assess.

Which ScaleBlaster Model Do I Need?

Before making your purchase, take time to determine which ScaleBlaster model you need.  You want to make sure you purchase the proper size electronic water descaler to ensure efficient limescale removal and prevention. The SB-75 is designed for homes under 4,000 square feet with calcium hardness levels up to 19 grains per gallon or 325 parts per million.  The SB Elite is designed for homes up to 5,000 square feet with calcium hardness levels up to 35 grains per gallon or 660 parts per million. You must purchase a unit with the capacity to handle the level of hard water you have coming into your home if want to effectively prevent limescale.

Water Hardness

We encourage you to test your water’s hardness before purchasing your ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler.  You can buy a hard water test kit from a local pool supply or hardware store.  Perform the test and note the results.  As mentioned in the section above, determining the calcium harness levels in your hard water is important when it comes to selecting the proper size unit.  Perform the test again 90-120 days after installing your new electronic water conditioner system. You will be amazed at the results!

Type of Pipe

Electronic water conditioners work with all types of pipe.  If you have Copper, PVC, CPVC or PEX, your new ScaleBlaster can be installed by wrapping a signal cable around the pipe on the incoming line into your home.  Galvanized pipe’s magnetic qualities prevent the signal from penetrating it. If you have galvanized pipe, you will simply need to replace about 6” – 8” inches of it with a non-magnetic pipe such as copper or PVC to accommodate the signal cable. This can be either be a DIY job, or can be handled by a handyman or plumber.

If you have questions, give us a call! We are here to help make sure you purchase the right unit for your home and family.
