Top Reasons Dad Loves ScaleBlaster

Last month, we discussed the top reasons why mom loves the ScaleBlaster water conditioner.  This month, we will cover what makes water conditioners such an appealing hard water treatment option for fathers to consider for their family.

Easy to Install

Many hard water treatment options are difficult and time consuming to install. Some even require a plumber.  The ScaleBlaster water conditioner easily installs on the incoming water line of your home. Simply mount the water conditioner power box on a wall, wrap the signal cable around the outside of the incoming pipeline and connect it to the power box. ScaleBlaster is now ready to begin its job as an effective limescale remover and prevention tool.

No Maintenance Required

Other hard water treatment options such as water softeners and filters require ongoing maintenance.  Water conditioners are maintenance free!

Saves Money Over the Long Term

The fact that the ScaleBlaster water conditioner is a limescale remover that also prevents new limescale from forming is a big plus.  Limescale wreaks havoc on appliances and fixtures, causing them to not work efficiently or break down all together.  Limescale is also harmful to pipes.  Having one unit that is a limescale remover and also prevents new limescale from forming can save thousands of dollars in appliance and equipment repair and replacement.

Do you have a dad who seems to have everything?  Are you often at a loss of what to buy him? Whether you are looking for a gift for Father’s Day, birthday or another holiday, a ScaleBlaster water conditioner makes a perfect gift for dad!

how to soften water at home

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).

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!!

Basic Principles of Water Scale Elimination

water scale removal

In answering the question of how to soften water at home, we have been covering the basic principles of water scale formation and elimination.  As a follow-on to our previous article discussing water scale formation, we will now cover the theory behind why the ScaleBlaster electronic descaler is an effective hard water scale remover and eliminator.

The theory behind ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler

When it comes to pipe scale removal and overall water scale removal, the ScaleBlaster electronic descaler is the most safe, effective and affordable option on the market today.   The ScaleBlaster unit itself is comprised of a signal cable wrapped around a pipe. The unit sends out a complex, dynamic current to produce oscillating fields inside the pipe.  This causes molecular agitation which ultimately results in water scale removal and prevention.

Induced Molecular Agitation (IMA)

ScaleBlaster’s frequency modulation signal produces an IMA inside the pipe.  When water and water scale causing ions are treated by the IMA, suspensions of soft and less-adherent calcium carbonate crystals are formed, thus removing the dissolved calcium and bicarbonate ions from a supersaturated solution. This is known as hard water scale removal.  The IMA also breaks hydrogen bonds in an aggregate of liquid water, freeing water molecules from the aggregate and increasing the solubility of water.  The unstable supersaturated calcium carbonate solution become stable, thus resulting in the prevention of water scale buildup.

Overall water scale removal, including pipe scale removal, can be easily and effectively accomplished by the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler. If you are looking for how to soften water at home, look no further.  The ScaleBlaster is not only an effective hard water scale remover, but also a powerful when it comes to preventing water scale from forming.

Basic Principles of Water Scale Formation

water scale removal

How to soften water at home is a question often asked by homeowners who are concerned about the health of their family and integrity of their pipes and appliances.  ScaleBlaster is an electronic water descaler/hard water scale remover that can be easily installed on the incoming water pipe of your home.  However, to understand how this electronic descaler is effective in pipe scale removal and overall water scale removal, it would be helpful to know how water scale forms in the first place.

There is a lot of science behind scale formation, but here are the basics:

  1. When it rains, water absorbs the CO2 gas in the air and becomes acidic.
  2. The acidic rain water then passes over and permeates through rocks such as limestone, seashells and marble and forms soluble calcium ions and bicarbonate ions.
  3. Then, any condition which alters the solubility of calcium bicarbonate will result in the precipitation of calcium carbonate – a.k.a. scale.
  4. When hard water comes in contact with metal, the electrostatic attraction between the metal surface and scale-causing materials causes it to stick to surfaces.

If you would like to learn more about how to soften water at home, consider reading our follow-on article discussing the Basic Principle of Scale Elimination.  We will discuss in depth how an electronic descaler is effective when it comes to water scale removal.  In fact, it is a safe, cost-effective and environmentally friendly option pipe scale remover and overall hard water scale remover compared to other water scale removal options such as water softeners.

Hard Water Solutions for Home

lime scale removal

Many homeowners are unsure if they live in an area with hard water.  There are some classic signs of hard water you can watch for, including water that smells or tastes bad, clogged pipes, water heater continually failing, laundry not getting clean, rust like stains on toilets and sidewalks. Our U.S. Water Hardness Map can also help you determine the calcium hardness level of your water. Hard water, whether it comes from a municipal water system or well, causes damaging limescale.  Lime scale removal is important for hard water because when deposits start building up that is when problems arise.

Solving the Hard Water Problem

Treating hard water can be handled in numerous ways. However, some of the traditional hard water treatment options are not the most healthy or effective. Water softeners are popular when it comes to treating hard water, however, they are expensive to maintain. They also require salt, which is not ideal to people on a salt-restricted diet. It is also not the best option for pets.

Electronic Water Descaler

One of the most effective and safest products for lime scale removal is an electronic water descaler. An electronic descaler is not only efficient as a lime scale remover, but it also helps prevent new deposits from forming.  It is also inexpensive, eco-friendly and requires no maintenance.

ScaleBlaster was first electronic water descaler in the world to perform as advertised, with the first model being released in early 1995. Other companies have tried to copy our electronic descaler, but when it comes to lime scale removal, nothing compares to ScaleBlaster.  ScaleBlaster easily attaches to the main water pipe and uses a signal to cause calcium carbonate molecules to lose their adhesive properties.

Cooling Systems Industrial

Why Cooling Systems Require Regular Descaling

Industrial equipment relies on cooling systems to ensure proper temperatures are maintained.  However, when hard water scale builds up, it can hinder proper functioning of the system.  An electronic water conditioner system can prevent hard water damage.  A water conditioner is a form of hard water treatment in that it prevents hard water damage by sending an inaudible signal through the pipe which causes turbulence in the water molecules and ion exchange in mineral atoms.  Crystals are unable to adhere to any surface; thus hard scale cannot form. As a result, existing scale not only goes away, it never returns again.

Since most cooling systems use water as the main coolant, a water conditioner is important for limescale removal and prevention.  Electronic water conditioner systems are effective when it comes to limescale removal and are used in industrial applications to prevent the degradation of expensive cooling systems.

Cooling towers also rely on industrial water conditioner systems for limescale removal and prevention.  Cooling towers re-use water, causing pure water to be evaporated.  As a result, many impurities, including limescale, remain. A water conditioner stabilizes the PH of the circulating water, thus preventing corrosion, controlling algae and bacteria and removing existing limescale.

When you consider the cost of damage that can occur to cooling systems and cooling towers, a water conditioner is an inexpensive option. The ScaleBlaster water conditioning system is a respected and proven limescale remover for industrial applications.  Best of all, it also preserves the integrity of your equipment by preventing new scale from forming.  Contact one of ScaleBlaster’s industrial dealers / specialists to learn more. We work with industries throughout the United States and abroad.

Keeping Your Decorative Fountains Scale-Free

Keeping Your Decorative Fountains Scale-Free

Hard water can wreak havoc on decorative fountains.  Over time, lime scale buildup can clog hoses and filters, causing water flow issues. Lime scale deposits can also become a visual eyesore, thus defeating the purpose of having the fountain in the first place.  Decorative fountains are not just found on commercial properties. Many homeowners choose to incorporate these beautiful fountains in their yards and areas around the swimming pool, often unaware of the true cost of cleaning and maintenance, which can often exceed hundreds of dollars a month.

How many times have you seen a “dry” fountain – one that is no longer flowing with water?  If you pay attention, it happens more than you think.  Homeowners and businesses invest in fountains to beautify their home or commercial space, only to find out it is too costly to maintain.  This is where ScaleBlaster can help.  Simply install ScaleBlaster on the incoming water line and it will not only begin breaking down the lime scale and calcium deposits already there, but it will prevent new scale from forming. A small investment in ScaleBlaster can help preserve the integrity and beauty of your decorative fountain.
