Tinker Air Force Base in Midwest City, Oklahoma is located in an area of the United States with extremely hard water. The base needed to address their hard water issues, especially in their barracks and cafeteria. They initially implemented one of the most costly hard water treatment options on the market – water softeners. Not only are water softeners expensive to purchase, but they also cost a lot to operate.
Officials at Tinker began searching for an alternative to expensive water softeners. After researching many hard water treatment options, they decided to have dozens of commercial ScaleBlaster units installed in their barracks and cafeteria areas. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler worked so well, they installed more throughout the base. Best of all, it saved them money:
Water softeners are expensive to maintain and require salt to operate. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is one of the most environmentally-friendly hard water treatment options available since it does not require chemicals or undergo a backwash process that pollutes the environment. This made it especially attractive since the base had implemented a green initiative.
Water softeners waste water and, as mentioned above, require a backwash process. Conserving water is not only responsible, but also saves money.
Our next article will look at another military base that has saved money by implementing the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler.
ScaleBlaster has become the commercial, industrial, and residential hard water solution of choice. Not only is it a limescale eliminator that is effective at pipe scale removal / water scale removal, but it also prevents new scale from forming.
