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.

Five Star Review from

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.
