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.

Electronic Water Conditioners – Great for Well Water, Too!

Electronic Water Conditioners – Great for Well Water, Too!

According to the Centers for Disease Control, and U.S. Census Bureau, approximately  13 millions homes in the U.S. use private ground water wells which are not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  This means that homes using well water must maintain and test their water on a regular basis.  Well water is considered hard water, which is full of calcium and prone to causing lime scale buildup on pipes, appliances and fixtures.

Many homeowners using well water or hard water will turn to a water softener for water conditioning.  Unfortunately, water softeners use salt in their water exchange.  This emits extra sodium in the water and also produces excess salt that is expelled into the environment.  This is neither healthy nor environmentally friendly.

A house water descaler– also known as an electronic water conditioner – is an ideal and ecofriendly water softener alternative.  Designed to be easily installed on the incoming pipe of your home, an electronic water descaler such as ScaleBlaster eliminates lime scale problems by preventing calcium molecules from adhering to the walls of your pipes, appliances and fixtures.  And, because it does not replace the calcium in your water with salt, you get added health benefits. Advantages of having an electronic water descaler for your house with well water includes added perks and conveniences such as not needing to use as much soap or detergent when bathing or cleaning, less corrosion, mold and mildew, brighter laundry and softer skin.

Water Conditioner How it Works

Water Conditioning – How it Works

Hard water and well water can wreak havoc on your home. Limescale buildup damages pipes, appliances, fixtures and anything that comes into contact with water.  A house water descaler  – also known as an electronic water conditioner – is an excellent and ecofriendly water softener alternative. Let’s take a look at how an electronic water descaler works.

First, install your new ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner onto the incoming pipe of your home.  This is simple for most people to accomplish on their own when following the included instructions.  Your new electronic water descaler will emit sonic waves that actually change the physical and electrical properties of the calcium molecules in your hard water or well water, preventing them from adhering to the walls of your pipes.  The result?  No more limescale buildup!

ScaleBlaster is an ecofriendly water softener alternative because it does not put salt back into the water or environment.  This is especially important for people on salt restricted diets.  Some municipalities have also banned the use of water softeners because of its harsh effect on the environment.

Why choose ScaleBlaster brand water descaler for your house? Customers choose ScaleBlaster over other electronic water conditioners because of our longevity in the business, excellent warranty, and customer satisfaction guarantee. We founded our business with a mission to provide a safe, affordable, maintenance-free, ecofriendly water softener alternative.  Water conditioning not only protects the longevity of your pipes, appliances and fixtures, but also offers a healthy option for your family.

What is the Difference Between a Water Softener and Electronic Water Conditioner?

I’m Confused, What is the Difference Between a Water Softener and Electronic Water Conditioner?

There is a big difference between a water softener and an electronic water conditioner.  A water softener will replace calcium in the water with salt, while an electronic water conditioner, like ScaleBlaster, will not remove anything from the water.  Water softeners are expensive to maintain, have only a 5 to 10 year lifespan, and require continuous maintenance.  They take up a lot of floor space and require ongoing purchases of salt.  The hassle of lifting 40 pound or more bags of salt is not fun.   Additionally, water softeners are harmful to people on salt restricted diets and should not be used.  An electronic water descaler like ScaleBlaster is the perfect solution.  While acting as a limescale remover, the calcium remains in the water, which is good for you.  ScaleBlaster is a salt-free water conditioner – a healthy alternative to water softeners.

Water softeners also make the skin feel dry and the water feel slippery and makes soap suds difficult to remove.  It will also increase water and sewer bills greatly while discharging chlorides into the water stream.  ScaleBlaster, a lime scale remover, requires no salt and is safe for people on salt restricted diets.  It is non-intrusive to the water and does not require any additional water usage.  ScaleBlaster is a great alternative to water a softener and will make water feel “silkier” while allowing for soap suds to wash away easily.   ScaleBlaster is also an ideal solution for tankless water heater and will prevent the heat exchanger in the heater from fouling up with scale deposits.

The Difference the Descaling System Makes

One of the most researched topics of today regards water and the various conditions and states it appears in at times. For the most part, everyone wants to take advantage of soft water and eliminate the presence or overall existence of hard water. This has led to a great deal of discussion about the best methods for softening water and if the salt-free condition softeners actually help to soften the water. In essence, the salt-free softeners for water are descaling systems. These systems don’t work to make the water softer but instead, contributes to descaling the water. This Water Descaling System is utilized to prevent minerals from settling or clinging to the vinyl and pipes. Although this is an advantage to the water softener, the Water Descaler System doesn’t soften the water.

There are also Electronic Water Descaler systems that work essentially well and the decision to get one should be arrived at after careful determination of what would work best for you. If the overall goal is to simply get softer water, the descaler is not the component to accomplish this. However, there are essentials that you need that it will certainly deliver. Utilizing the descaling system will help reduce the build-up of minerals that could lead to appliance troubles or permanent breakdown of the equipment.

Advantages of Descaling Water Systems:

  • Installation costs of water descaling systems is a great deal less than water softener systems
  • Requires minimum amounts of maintenance for proper operation
  • Prevents periodic failure of pipes and other parts that the water passes through
  • Assists in keeping the essential minerals in the water
