How Can I Test My Home for Hard Water?

Test Hard Water - How Can I Test My Home for Hard Water?

The hardness of your water can determine what issues you may be presented with in the future. Fortunately, a hard water descaler is an effective limescale eliminator that also prevents new scale from forming, so even if you have extremely hard water, you can easily resolve the problems it may be causing or will cause soon. In fact, the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is one of the most effective water scale removal and prevention solutions on the market today. Even if your water is only slightly hard, you can benefit from having a hard water descaler for your home. Let’s look at some ways to determine if you have hard water:

Test Strips

Hard water test strip kits can be purchased at most hardware and/or home improvement stores. Simply dip the strip into a sample of your water. The strip will change color, which you can then match per the kit instructions to indicate the level of hard water.

Water Reports

Your county or city will generally have readily available reports on the quality of water in your area. Some municipalities even post them online. If you are unable to locate them online, then contact the municipality that supplies your water and request the report.

The Bottle Test

If you want a quick and easy way to test your home for hard water, then you can always count on the old standard – the bottle test.  Simply take a clean, clear bottle and fill it about ½ to ¾ with water from your tap. Then, place 10-12 drops of unscented, clear soap into the bottle and shake it. If the water has few bubbles and is cloudy then you likely have hard water. While this is not a scientific indicator of hard water, it will give you a good idea if you may have an issue or not.

Tackling hard water problems doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. The ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is easy to install and requires no ongoing maintenance, making it one of the most affordable and effective water scale removal and prevention solutions on the market today. The ScaleBlaster hard water descaler can be purchased at Home Depot (in-store and online) and online at Lowe’s and Costco.  We invite you to give it a try today!

How Do I Know If I Have a Hard Water Problem?

How Do I Know If I Have a Hard Water Problem?

Have a Hard Water Problem - How Do I Know If I Have a Hard Water Problem?

It can be difficult to know if you have a hard water problem, especially when you move into a new home.  Testing your water and/or obtaining water reports from your municipal water provider is a good place to start.  If your home is new and you have hard water, it is advisable to install a residential hard water solution before you begin to have problems.  Let’s take a look at some common signs of hard water.  If you are experiencing any of these, you should consider installing the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler right away to prevent hard water issues from escalating.

Crusty Buildup

If you notice a crusty buildup in faucets, showerheads, drains and any fixtures exposed to water, then you need to start considering hard water treatment options. This crusty buildup is lime scale, and it is caused by high levels of calcium and magnesium found in hard water. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler prevents calcium carbonate from adhering to pipes and fixtures, thus keeping new scale from forming. ScaleBlaster is an effective lime scale remover as well.

Appliances Not Working Efficiently

Lime scale buildup can cause appliances that come into contact with water (i.e. washer, dishwasher, coffee maker, etc.) to be less efficient.  Less efficient appliances have to work harder and often require more electricity to operate. The ScaleBlaster residential hard water solution is an effective lime scale remover. It will address existing pipe scale and keep new scale from forming.

Water Flow Issues

If you notice issues with your water flow, this could be a result of lime scale buildup in your pipes. ScaleBlaster is an effective lime scale remover that is safe, eco-friendly and does not require the use of chemicals. Once installed, it not only handles pipe scale removal, but it prevents new scale from forming, which is why ScaleBlaster has become such a popular residential hard water solution.

When it comes to hard water treatment options, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is the preferred choice among homeowners.  They choose ScaleBlaster because it is affordable, effective, easy to install and requires no chemicals, salt or maintenance. If you are seeking a residential hard water solution, look no further. ScaleBlaster is available at Home Depot (in-store and online) or online at Lowe’s and Costco.  Consider picking one up today!

Consequences of Hard Water

scaleblaster 1200x628 layout1370 1f3s688 - Consequences of Hard Water

We are continuing our series on problems caused by hard water.  Many homeowners turn to water decalcification systems to help resolve their hard water issues.  However, not all hard water treatment options are equal.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is a residential hard water solution that is extremely effective for both water scale removal and prevention.  Pipe scale removal is important because it resolves some of the issues we are discussing in this series including clogged pipes and issues with appliances.

Let’s take a look at a few more consequences of hard water and reasons why homeowners often seek a residential hard water solution:

Clothes Not Getting Clean/Fading

Hard water has a negative impact on clothes for many reasons.  One, the calcium and magnesium content of hard water can cause laundry to gray or yellow.  High mineral content can also inhibit the water from effectively mixing with detergents.  Additional issues are caused when the washing machine is not operating at peak performance thanks to limescale buildup.  This is why pipe scale removal / water scale removal is so important.

Difficulties Lathering Soap

Hard water makes it more difficult for soap to lather. Once you install an electronic water descaler, you will begin to notice that your soap lathers more, your skin feels smoother and hair is more manageable.  Once pipe scale removal / water scale removal is complete, you will even notice that your shower heads and faucets no longer clog with limescale.

Spots on Dishes

The minerals in hard water often leave dishes looking dirty and spotty, even when they come fresh out of the dishwasher.  Once you install the ScaleBlaster residential hard water solution you will notice that your dishes appear much cleaner.

Are you experiencing some of these consequences of hard water and interested in learning more about water decalcification systems and hard water treatment options?  If so, we can help.

unnamed - ScaleBlaster and Wastewater Treatment – A Closer Look

We’ve been taking a look at how wastewater treatment plants benefit from the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler.  When it comes to hard water treatment options, ScaleBlaster wins hands down.  For starters, it is affordable, requires little maintenance, no chemicals and is environmentally friendly. It is also effective in both pipe scale removal and prevention.

Our previous article covered how the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler can be used for water scale removal and prevention in slurry pumps and chlorine injection pumps.  We also discussed how it helps prevent calcification of the resin bed.  Below are additional benefits ScaleBlaster has over inferior industrial water decalcification systems:

Sensors and Instruments

Calcium particles leave deposits on sensors, control valves and other instruments.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler prevents this from happening.

Mixing Tank

Often times, the sides of the mixing tank and mixing propeller are subject to scale buildup.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler not only handles water scale removal to address existing scale, but treats the water that will be mixed to prevent new scale from forming,

Sodium Bisulfite Line

Sodium bisulfate lines are used to remove chlorine and control pH levels.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler prevents calcium from plugging up these lines.

When it comes to saving time, money and maintenance, ScaleBlaster is the preferred choice over other industrial hard water treatment options.  Just as power plants benefit from reducing the need for cooling tower biocide, wastewater treatment plants also experience a significant reduction in the need for chemicals.  Contact one of our industrial specialists to learn more.

Residential Hard Water Solution

Why is ScaleBlaster the Preferred Residential Hard Water Solution?

Residential Hard Water Solution - Why is ScaleBlaster the Preferred Residential Hard Water Solution?

ScaleBlaster was first released in 1995 and became the first and only electronic water descaler to be successful in the residential, commercial and industrial markets. Since then, there have been competitors emerge onto the scene with inferior electronic water descaler models that don’t hold a candle to the water scale removal and prevention qualities of ScaleBlaster.

ScaleBlaster underwent several years of testing and development before being released.  We knew that there were many electronic water descaler products on the market with questionable reputations.  This was something we had to overcome and we did so by first developing an effective and reliable hard water scale removal and prevention product and then building a worldwide network of dealers and major retailers that believed in ScaleBlaster.

ScaleBlaster can be easily installed by homeowners and requires no additional plumbing in most cases.  Just install it on the incoming water line and it is good to go!

Maintenance Free

Water softeners require ongoing maintenance.  Any chemical limescale remover requires continual use. ScaleBlaster is completely maintenance free.

ScaleBlaster and Amusement Parks

ScaleBlaster and Amusement Parks - ScaleBlaster and Amusement Parks

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

ScaleBlaster Water Softeners - ScaleBlaster vs. Water Softeners

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!
