Keeping Your Decorative Fountains Scale-Free

Keeping Your Decorative Fountains Scale-Free

Hard water can wreak havoc on decorative fountains.  Over time, lime scale buildup can clog hoses and filters, causing water flow issues. Lime scale deposits can also become a visual eyesore, thus defeating the purpose of having the fountain in the first place.  Decorative fountains are not just found on commercial properties. Many homeowners choose to incorporate these beautiful fountains in their yards and areas around the swimming pool, often unaware of the true cost of cleaning and maintenance, which can often exceed hundreds of dollars a month.

How many times have you seen a “dry” fountain – one that is no longer flowing with water?  If you pay attention, it happens more than you think.  Homeowners and businesses invest in fountains to beautify their home or commercial space, only to find out it is too costly to maintain.  This is where ScaleBlaster can help.  Simply install ScaleBlaster on the incoming water line and it will not only begin breaking down the lime scale and calcium deposits already there, but it will prevent new scale from forming. A small investment in ScaleBlaster can help preserve the integrity and beauty of your decorative fountain.

What You Don’t See Can Hurt Your Home

What You Don’t See Can Hurt Your Home

The previous article discussed how to determine the hardness of the water in your home.  Today, we will explore how what you don’t see can cause major issues.  We talked about how limescale buildup on appliances, fixtures, tubs and sinks is a sign of hard water problems.  This type of limescale buildup can generally be handled using a cleaner designed specifically for calcium and limescale. However, it is what you don’t see that can really do some damage.

Have you ever watched home remodeling and/or house flipping shows on television?  If so, you are probably familiar with scenes where the homeowners are faced with replacing their indoor plumbing and pipes due to limescale buildup. Yes, believe it or not, calcium and limescale can build up in your pipes over time to the point of actually blocking water flow.  This results in costly repairs and/or re-plumbing the entire home.

What is so incredible about ScaleBlaster is that is actually “blasts” the current limescale buildup on your pipes, then prevents new scale from forming.  It may take some time for ScaleBlaster to eliminate existing limescale – approximately 90 days for the average home – but once it is eliminated, it will remain gone for as long as you have ScaleBlaster installed. And, let’s not forget to mention that you can also go back to cleaning with everyday cleaners versus harsher ones designed to cut through limescale and calcium.

ScaleBlaster is affordable and easy to install.  A small investment now can save you tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention many headaches, in the future. Check out our residential installation video to learn more.

How Do I Know if I Have Hard Water?

How Do I Know if I Have Hard Water?

Most everyone has hard water.  This is especially true if you live in the continental United States.   The calcium hardness level of your water does vary depending on where you live.  Our U.S. Water Hardness Map is helpful in determining if you live in a region with slightly hard or rocklike hard water, or somewhere in between. Well water is generally harder than city or municipal water. There are several ways to determine the level of hard water in your home:

  1. Limescale buildup on your appliances, fixtures, tubs, sinks, etc. is a tell-tale sign of hard water issues. Watch these videos from the DIY Network and HGTV to learn more.
  1. Hard water testing – if you live in an area with municipal or city water, they conduct regular testing and can provide you with information on calcium hardness. Some municipalities even make the information available on their website.
  1. Pick up your own hard water testing kit – you can test the water yourself using a kit available at a pool supply store. You can also bring in a sample of your water to a pool store with in-house water testing capabilities. This is especially important for homes using well water.

Everyone has hard water to some extent.  Regardless of how hard your water is, ScaleBlaster can prevent limescale formation.  This is important for your health and for the health of your appliances, fixtures and pipes.  Be sure to read our next article titled, What You Don’t See Can Hurt Your Home.
