Why Wastewater Operations Need a Reliable Industrial Hard Water Descaling Solution

Industrial Hard Water Descaling Solution - Why Wastewater Operations Need a Reliable Industrial Hard Water Descaling Solution

We are continuing our series of articles on why wastewater operations need a reliable industrial hard water descaling solution. Our previous articles covered how an electronic descaling system is beneficial in lime and soda ash treatment, can prevent resin bed calcification, reduces polymer usage, benefits effluent systems, and prevents scale on pumps.  Today, we will look at more reasons why wastewater operations need a dependable industrial hard water descaler.

Protects Sensors & Instruments

Limescale can build anywhere, and control valves, probes, and sensors are no exception. An electronic descaling system will act as a limescale eliminator, performing existing water scale removal and preventing new scale from forming, thus ensuring none of the instrumentation is disrupted or damaged as a result of limescale.

Improves Efficiency of Mixing Tanks

Lime / soda ash is mixed with water to form a slurry and is then pumped into the water for treatment. The mixing is performed in a large mixing tank. The tank, as well as the mixing propeller, are prone to scale buildup. An industrial hard water descaler prevents limescale from forming inside the mixing tank or on the propeller.

ScaleBlaster has been a preferred industrial hard water descaling solution for more than three decades.  In fact, it is arguably the most trusted residential, commercial, and industrial electronic descaling system on the market today. It is affordable, has a proven track record, and is an ecofriendly water softener alternative.

I Want to Consider an Ecofriendly Water Softener Alternative

I Want to Consider an Ecofriendly Water Softener Alternative

I Want to Consider an Ecofriendly Water Softener Alternative - I Want to Consider an Ecofriendly Water Softener Alternative

We are continuing our series of articles exploring the downsides of water softeners. Our previous articles discussed how water softeners involve a large initial investment, require professional installation, take up valuable floor space, increase water bills, are not eco-friendly, and require expensive, time consuming ongoing maintenance.  Today, we will look at more downsides to water softeners and reasons to consider an ecofriendly water softener alternative.

Not Ideal for Individuals on Salt-Restrictive Diets

Water treated with water softeners is high in sodium, making it less than ideal for individuals on salt-restrictive diets and/or those who are watching their sodium levels. Water with higher sodium levels is also not ideal for family pets to consume. A hard water descaler such as ScaleBlaster does not add salt or chemicals to the water.

Makes Soap Difficult to Remove

Water softeners make it more difficult for water to remove soap from skin and laundry. This is why your skin often feels somewhat slippery after bathing or showering with soft water. When you use a hard water descaler such as ScaleBlaster, you will notice the water feels silkier, your skin feels softer, and soap easily washes away.

ScaleBlaster is a trusted, ecofriendly water softener alternative that has been installed in thousands of homes, commercial buildings, and industrial operations worldwide. Not only is ScaleBlaster a hard water descaler that prevents new scale from forming, but it is also a limescale eliminator that is proven effective in water scale removal. If you want an affordable, reliable hard water descaler, then we encourage you to give the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system a try.

Residential ScaleBlaster hard water descaler models can be purchased online or in-store at Home Depot. It can also be purchased online at Lowes and Costco.

The ScaleBlaster industrial hard water descaler for your commercial or industrial operation can be purchased by contacting the commercial / industrial ScaleBlaster dealer nearest to you or e-mailing sales@scaleblaster.com.

When searching for a solution for hard water problems, water softeners are what most frequently come to mind. However, water softeners are not always the best option, for numerous reasons. We are continuing our series discussing the downside of water softeners. Our previous articles covered the fact that purchasing a water softener is expensive, requires professional installation, takes up floor space, and increases water bills. Today, we will look at more of the disadvantages of choosing a water softener over an electronic descaling system.

Not Eco-Friendly

Water softeners are not environmentally friendly, period.  In addition to utilizing extra water as we discussed in our previous article, they also require salt and discharge chlorides into the waste stream. On the contrary, an electronic descaling system does not require any chemicals and does not discharge anything into the water stream, making it an ecofriendly water softener alternative.

Requires Ongoing Maintenance

A water softener requires a lot of ongoing maintenance. In addition to purchasing salt and resin on a regular basis, owners of water softeners must inspect the system, clean and adjust valves, and sanitize the resin and water tanks.  The beauty of the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is that it’s an ecofriendly water softener alternative that requires no ongoing maintenance.

Our next article will explore more disadvantages of water softeners.

If you are seeking an ecofriendly water softener alternative, then the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is something to seriously consider. Not only it is a hard water descaler that prevents new scale from forming, but it also is a limescale eliminator that is effective in water scale removal. In otherwards, it addresses existing scale as well!  Homeowners can purchase the ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler online or in-store at Home Depot.

Increases Water and Sewer Bills

Water softeners require additional water usage, which naturally results in more water consumption and higher water and sewer bills. The ScaleBlaster hard water descaler uses no water and is extremely effective in water scale removal and prevention.

The Downside of Water Softeners

The Downside of Water Softeners - The Downside of Water Softeners

As we’ve discussed in a previous article, we have had homeowners tell us that their plumbing professional recommends a water softener instead of an electronic descaling system. We beg to differ, and we have dedicated the past four decades towards helping both homeowners and professionals deal with their hard water issues.

The ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is a hard water descaler that is effective in water scale removal. It is also a limescale eliminator that prevents new scale from forming. The ScaleBlaster hard water descaler comes in residential and commercial models. Our industrial hard water descaler is effective and can handle even the demands of large cooling towers.  In fact, industrial hard water descaling using a proven electronic water descaler such as the ScaleBlaster results in the reduced need for cooling tower biocide.

These are just a few of the many reasons why both homeowners and commercial / industrial entities are bypassing water softeners and choosing a residential electronic descaling system for their home and an industrial hard water descaler for their facilities. Our next series of article will take a closer look at some of the downsides of water softeners. Let’s get started.

Large Investment

Water softeners cost thousands of dollars and require an ongoing investment in both maintenance and chemicals. The ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaler models are not only affordable, but they do not require an ongoing investment and they save money in the long run.

Requires Professional Installation

Water softeners can cost hundreds of dollars in professional installation fees. The ScaleBlaster residential hard water descaler and industrial hard water descaling system do not require the services of a plumber to install. In most cases, homeowners can handle their own residential installation while commercial entities often enlist their in-house maintenance crew for installation.

Shopping for Hard Water Treatment Options?

Should I Consider a Reverse Osmosis System When Shopping for Hard Water Treatment Options?

scaleblaster 1200x628 layout354 1gu0vj0 - Should I Consider a Reverse Osmosis System When Shopping for Hard Water Treatment Options?

We are continuing our series discussing a reverse osmosis system as a residential hard water solution.  As we mentioned in previous articles, a reverse osmosis system only makes a few gallons of water a day.  Although it is not suitable for preventing hard water in a residential setting, it can be used to complement an electronic water descaler.  When it comes to hard water treatment options, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is an effective limescale eliminator and prevents new scale from forming. It also does not require ongoing maintenance or have any filters to clean or replace.

If you own a reverse osmosis drinking water system, you will need to clean, sanitize, and recharge it on a regular basis, once a year at a minimum. This is a process that you will either need to hire a professional to perform or do yourself. If you plan to do it yourself, you will need to consult your owner’s manual, but in a nutshell, the process will involve ensuring the surrounding area is clean and free of dirt and dust, completely shutting off the main water valve, and removing the water from the faucet on your reverse osmosis system (many models are equipped with an air gap faucet.) You will then need to remove all of the filters and membrane from their housings and pour either hydrogen peroxide, unscented bleach, or designated sanitizer into the pre-filter housing and cycle the system with water.

Each reverse osmosis system is different, so as we mentioned earlier, this is just a brief overview to give you an idea of what the process entails. You will need to consult your owner’s manual for instructions specific to your unit.

Bottom line, an electronic water descaler is effective at water scale removal / pipe scale removal and prevents new scale from forming.  It is one of the most affordable hard water treatment options on the market and is the one residential hard water solution that requires no ongoing maintenance. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is available at Home Depot (in-store and online) and online at Lowe’s and Costco.  We invite you to give it a try today!

A Favorable Residential Hard Water Solution?

Is A Reverse Osmosis System A Favorable Residential Hard Water Solution?

Is A Reverse Osmosis System A Favorable Residential Hard Water Solution - Is A Reverse Osmosis System A Favorable Residential Hard Water Solution?

We are continuing our series discussing whether or not a reverse osmosis system is a good residential hard water solution.  Our previous article acknowledged that a reverse osmosis system is effective in improving the quality and taste of drinking water. However, it has some performance issues when it comes to removing elements that cause hard water. And, since a reverse osmosis drinking water system only makes a few gallons of water per day, it is not suitable for preventing hard water in a residential setting.

A reverse osmosis drinking water system also requires ongoing maintenance that is not only time consuming but can become very costly. In addition to the system needing to be installed by a professional who has experience with how to implement and test a whole home system, there are numerous filters and a membrane that needs monitored and replaced at different intervals. We have previous articles that cover this in detail, but here is a brief rundown:

Sediment Filter – Catches sediment before it contaminates and clogs the membrane, needs to be replaced at least once a year.

Carbon Filter – Filters out contaminants to improve the taste of your water, needs to be replaced at least every six months.

Polishing Filters – Another filter that helps ensure the water has a pleasing taste and no foul odors, usually needs to be replaced at least once a year.

Membrane – The most expensive of all filters that filters out contaminants not caught by the other filters, usually needs to be replaced at least every two years.

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is one of the most desired hard water treatment options on the market because it is the one residential hard water solution that is both effective and affordable.  In addition to preventing new scale from forming, it is also a limescale eliminator that is effective in pipe scale removal / water scale removal. If you have been comparing hard water treatment options and are ready to invest in a residential hard water solution, then we invite you to give ScaleBlaster a try.  Your satisfaction is guaranteed!  It 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.
