Benefits of Reducing the Effects of Hard Water

Hard water treatment is essential for homeowners desiring to avoid the negative effects it has on both the body and appliances/fixtures in your home. If your home is new, installing a water conditioning system – such as ScaleBlaster – can prevent scale from building up in your pipes. If you were unable to prevent hard water damage before it started, don’t fret.  An electronic water conditioner is also effective for lime scale removal.   Let’s take a look at how ScaleBlaster is effective for preventing hard water damage and also for hard water treatment:

Hair and Skin

One of the most noticeable reasons to consider hard water treatment is that the soap and shampoo you use in the shower does not lather like it should. This can leave you feeling dirty even after you take a shower. A water conditioning system not only allows the soap and shampoo to produce a nice lather, but, you also save money because you use less of it.

Appliances and Fixtures

ScaleBlaster is an effective lime scale remover.  Over time, lime scale buildup on your pipes has a negative effect on your dishwasher and other appliances that come in contact with water. Hard water causes a white film that can be seen on dishes and household fixtures such as showerheads and faucets.  Taking steps to prevent hard water damage is important because lime scale buildup also reduces the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances.


Another reason to prevent hard water damage is the possibility of it causing stains on your laundry. When you use the ScaleBlaster water conditioner, you no longer need to worry about stains and you can use less laundry detergent to get your clothes nice and clean.

ScaleBlaster has a nice selection of residential models to fit any home.  Be sure to check them out either online or at Home Depot.

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.
