Industrial Hard Water Descaling Solution

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.

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.

My Plumber Said I Need to Get a Water Softener - My Plumber Said I Need to Get a Water Softener

“My plumber told me I needed to get a water softener instead of an electronic descaling system.” Ahh, yes. We hear this often. There are two primary reasons why homeowners are advised as such by their plumbing professional. It could be that their plumber is simply not familiar with how an electronic descaling system works. Or, it could be that their plumber gets a commission on each referral for a water softener system and/or on each one they install.

If your plumber recommends a water softener instead of an electronic water descaler, don’t hesitate to ask them why.  You may even wish to bring up some of the benefits of an electronic descaling system such as the fact that it is a limescale eliminator that is effective in water scale removal and prevents new scale from forming. An electronic water descaler is also an ecofriendly water softener alternative.

Would you like to learn more about the differences between an electronic descaling system and a water softener? Our next series of articles will discuss some of the downsides of water softeners. If your plumber wishes to learn more about the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler, or would like to inquire about how to become one of our professional dealers or wholesalers, we encourage them to give us a call or send us an e-mail at sales@scaleblaster.com.

Five Star Review from Homedepot.com:

I am a real estate appraiser and have seen this product in a few homes. Each time, the homeowner has spoken positively of it. When my softener was beginning to show signs (not going through the volume of salt like it usually does) of slowing down/age/malfunction and the water was feeling a harder, I decided to pick this up and give it a try. My wife, my daughter and I all have all noticed an immediate improvement in the water. Now 2 weeks later, the water feels as good as it ever has! I installed it right after the meter and it took about an hour to install. The hardest part was counting the number of “wraps” around the pipe. So far so good, we would certainly recommend the ScaleBlaster to a friend or neighbor with hard water.

The Downside of Hard Water

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some of the indicators and downsides of hard water. Our previous articles covered how the ScaleBlaster ecofriendly water softener alternative is a limescale eliminator that is effective in water scale removal and prevention. Some of the hard water problems an electronic descaling system can resolve include chalky buildup, poor water pressure, dry skin, and faded laundry. Today, we will look at two more reasons you may wish to consider a hard water descaler for your home.

Appliances in Need of Repair or Premature Replacement

When hard water runs through appliances such as dishwashers, clothes washers, coffee machines, etc. the accumulation of calcium and magnesium causes them to essentially “gunk” up, forcing them to work harder than intended.  This often results in the more frequent need for repairs, and eventually premature replacement, of appliances that utilize water. The ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is a limescale eliminator that prevents new scale from forming, so appliances run more efficiently and are able to perform at optimal levels.

Water Heater Issues

Magnesium and calcium cause limescale that can build up on the heat exchanger of tankless water heaters. This results in poor water pressure and lack of hot water, not to mention higher water and electric bills.  The ScaleBlaster hard water descaler is an ecofriendly water softener alternative that is not only effective in water scale removal, but it prevents new scale from forming, thus allowing water heaters to be more efficient.

If you want to eliminate hard water problems in your home, look no further. The ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is also a limescale eliminator, making it all you need for water scale removal and the prevention of new scale from forming. This affordable, effective, ecofriendly water softener alternative is easy to install, requires no maintenance and can be purchased at Home Depot or online at Home Depot, Lowe’s, or Costco. We encourage you to pick one up today!

We are continuing our series of articles discussing the negative effects of hard water and why you may want to consider installing an electronic descaling system in your home. Our previous article discussed the chalky buildup and poor water pressure caused by hard water. Let’s take a look at more indicators you have hard water and some reasons why you should consider purchasing the ScaleBlaster ecofriendly water softener alternative and limescale eliminator for your home.

Dry Skin

Hard water makes it more challenging for soap to lather up and rinse completely away. Individuals living in homes with hard water problems often experience dry skin as a result. Dry skin caused by hard water is extremely problematic in low humidity climates and when the weather is cold.  The ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is an ecofriendly water softener alternative that will resolve dry skin issues that are caused by taking a bath or shower in hard water.

Faded Laundry

When magnesium and calcium accumulate in the water, it can have a profound negative affect on laundry, causing clothes and towels to fade and not feel soft after being washed. Once installed, the ScaleBlaster hard water descaler is effective on water scale removal and prevents new scale from forming, thus eliminating the laundry  issues caused by hard water.

Our next article will address more negative effects of hard water.

If you have hard water in your home, then we encourage you to consider installing the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system. Our hard water descaler is an ecofriendly water softener alternative that is easy to install, affordable, and requires no ongoing maintenance.
