Do I Have Hard Water?
How to Determine if you Need a Residential Hard Water Solution
One question homeowners often ask is if they live in an area with hard water. The calcium hardness level depends on many factors. If you live in the continental United States, our U.S. Water Hardness Map will help you determine the hardness of the water in your area.
Many municipalities post the water hardness levels on their websites and/or make it available by calling. You can also test the hardness of your water by using a calcium hardness test kit available at pool supply stores.
If you are on a well, it is important to note that well water is generally harder than municipal water. You should use a calcium hardness test to determine hardness.
ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler model is the right residential hard water solution for you. ScaleBlaster is not only effective with lime scale removal, but it will also prevent new scale from forming. Pipe scale removal is especially important because it can adversely affect not just your pipes, but any component in your home that uses water.
Prior to ScaleBlaster, homeowners either had to use a harsh limescale remover and/or chemicals for pipe scale removal or invest in a water softener. Chemicals are a somewhat effective hard water scale remover, but they are not healthy or environmentally friendly. Water softeners are not only more expensive than an electronic water descaler, but they rely on ongoing maintenance and utilize salt. ScaleBlaster is not only an eco-friendly residential hard water solution, but it requires no maintenance, filters, salt or chemicals.
If you are looking for an affordable, simple solution that can tackle water scale removal and prevent new limescale from forming, give ScaleBlaster a try today. Our residential models are available at Home Depot (in-store and online) and Lowe’s (online).
