We are often asked how electronic water conditioners compare to water softeners. There are some significant benefits and differences. First, the ScaleBlaster water conditioner is a lime scale remover. It actually works to remove existing scale in addition to preventing new lime scale from forming. A water softener is not an effective lime scale remover. Let’s take a look at some other important differences between the two hard water treatment options:
The ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner is a one-time investment that never requires maintenance. Water softeners are expensive to purchase and require ongoing maintenance. And, unlike water softeners which can increase water and sewer bills, electronic water conditioners do not require additional water usage.
Water conditioners require no chemicals to achieve lime scale removal or to prevent new limescale from forming. Water softeners require salt, which is not ideal for pets or people on reduced sodium diets. Water conditioners are considered a “green” product, whereas water softeners discharge chlorides into the waste stream.
The ScaleBlaster residential electronic water conditioner is compact, mounts on the wall, and easily installs on the incoming water line. Water softeners often require special piping and take up a significant amount of floor space.
There are added benefits to using the ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner for lime scale removal and prevention. Homeowners who use ScaleBlaster report that their water feels “silkier”, skin feels softer and soap suds easily wash away. Water softeners tend to dry out the skin and make the water feel slippery. Soap suds take extra time to remove.
