Electronic Water Descaler

ScaleBlaster Pro Series Model

Electronic Water Descaler

The ScaleBlaster SB-Max Pro is an electronic water descaler designed for larger homes and often sought by professionals who work with homeowners who need a residential hard water solution.  It is unsurpassed as a hard water scale remover and is incredibly effective in preventing new limescale from forming.

The ScaleBlaster SB-Max Pro electronic water descaler works on copper, PVC, CPVC and PEX pipe.  It can be used on homes up to 5,000 square feet for both indoor and outdoor installations.  It is considered to be 60% more powerful than the SB-75 residential model, which is why it can handle calcium harness levels of up to 40 grains per gallon (gpg) or 684 parts per million (ppm).

It is important to note that with an electronic water descaler, the water hardness level and total dissolved solids will remain the same.  This is because ScaleBlaster is a water conditioner, not a water softener.  Water softeners remove calcium from the water.  ScaleBlaster does not.  Calcium is good for the metabolism so removing it has no benefit.

ScaleBlaster is an effective hard water scale remover that does not rely on salt or chemicals.  It dissolves the scale so in cases of heavy buildup, initial pipe scale removal may take some time.  The good news is that in addition to being a hard water scale remover, ScaleBlaster is extremely effective in limescale prevention.

If you are a professional who is seeking to find an effective residential hard water solution for your customers, we can help.  The SB-Max Pro is available through our USA and international dealers.

Electronic Water Descaler

Advantages of Installing an Electronic Water Descaler Instead of a Water Softener

Electronic Water Descaler

Part Two

When it comes to shopping for a hard water scale remover and limescale prevention solution, the two main choices for homeowners are an electronic water descaler and a water softener.  We are continuing our two-part series on the advantages of installing an electronic water descaler.

Eco-Friendly

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler requires no salt or chemicals to be effective as a hard water scale remover and limescale prevention solution. Water softeners, on the otherhand, use salt and chemicals that are discharged into the waste stream and unable to be removed by wastewater treatment facilities.  ScaleBlaster is an eco-friendly water softener alternative.

Overall Effects on the Water

Water softeners make skin feel dry.  The water also feels slippery and soap suds are difficult to remove.  Once you install ScaleBlaster, the pipe scale removal process begins. You will gradually start to notice that your skin feels softer, the water feels silkier and soap suds easily wash away.  The full benefits of ScaleBlaster will be apparent after a few months.

Healthy

Water softeners add salt to the water. Added salt in drinking water is not recommended for people on salt restricted diets or pets. Water softeners also remove all calcium from the water.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler does not require chemicals to be an effective limescale remover.  It also does an excellent job in preventing new scale from forming.

Cost Savings

ScaleBlaster is a residential hard water solution that is much more cost effective than purchasing a water softener system.  Furthermore, ScaleBlaster is a one-time investment that is not only effective in pipe scale removal / water scale removal, but also prevents new scale from forming all together.  Another advantage an electronic water descaler has over water softeners is that it requires no additional water to operate and does not use filters.  The water savings alone makes an electronic water descaler a sound investment.
