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!

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!

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.

ScaleBlaster vs. Water Filters – what is the difference?

ScaleBlaster vs. Water Filters – what is the difference?

ScaleBlaster and water filters are totally different.  A water purifier, or water filter, will remove contaminants in the water like chlorine and iron.  These systems are water purification systems, while ScaleBlaster is a lime scale remover.  Calcium buildup is removed by the ScaleBlaster without any maintenance or chemicals.  By combining the two together, you can have the closest thing to pure water as possible.  A shower filter, for example will eventually need some kind of a scale remover to take care of it – either by replacing the equipment of manually cleaning it.  ScaleBlaster can take care of this automatically without the hassle of a scale remover.

Water filtration systems will remove bad taste in drinking water.  ScaleBlaster will keep the calcium in the water, which is good for your metabolism and is required.  Water softeners remove calcium from the water by using salt.  This is not good for those on salt-restricted diets.  ScaleBlaster can handle the entire household and will give your family and house many, many years of maintenance-free troubles of your hard water problems you experience daily.

The ScaleBlaster signal causes the ions to precipitate or collide with each other to the point where the calcium crystals grow until they become so larger that there are no more surface charges left to stick to the pipe walls or any other surface.  ScaleBlaster is installed on the incoming water line entering the home.  It is non-intrusive and there is no cutting into the pipe.

Water filters, or a water filtration system, can be installed in conjunction with ScaleBlaster and are recommended if you want to remove chlorine and sediment in the water.
