How ScaleBlaster’s Commercial Electronic Water Descaler Saves You Money

Commercial Electronic Water Descaler Saves You Money - How ScaleBlaster’s Commercial Electronic Water Descaler Saves You Money

Calcium breaks down into calcium carbonate and causes limescale to build up on your pipes, appliances and water cooling towers. Limescale buildup can cause clogs, corrosion and a shortened life for water cooling towers, machinery and appliances. A chemical limescale remover is a common solution, however, not only is it harmful to the environment, but it can cause damage over the long term.  If you want a safe and affordable solution for limescale removal and prevention, an electronic water descaler is your answer.  An electronic descaler will help prevent limescale buildup from negatively impacting your pipelines, water cooling towers, and other machinery and/or appliances.

Incorporating an electronic water descaler is important because limescale buildup can cause clogs that are almost impossible to address. When you have a buildup of limescale in your HVAC, water cooling tower or other machinery, it can have a negative effect on the overall lifespan and reduce efficiency. Limescale buildup can also cause corrosion, which weakens pipes and machinery, making them more susceptible to leaks and other malfunctions.

The ScaleBlaster is a proven electronic descaler that is available in commercial and industrial models.  Not only is ScaleBlaster effective in limescale removal, but it prevents limescale from forming all together. Best of all, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler requires virtually no maintenance, is chemical free and environmentally friendly.

Chemical options for limescale removal and control include the use toxic chemicals to manage the amount of limescale within the pipes and water cooling towers. The ScaleBlaster electronic descaler uses no chemicals and instead works by sending electromagnetic signals through your water supply before it enters your building. These signals alter the chemical properties of calcium, preventing the calcium molecules from sticking to the sides of pipes, water cooling towers, machinery and appliances.

Soft Water vs. an Electronic Water Conditioner

Soft Water vs. an Electronic Water Conditioner

While it is true that hard water causes numerous problems that can be avoided, softening the water is not your only option.  Water softeners are expensive to purchase and maintain.  They require ongoing maintenance and continuous purchasing of salt, which not only discharges chlorides into the waste stream, but is also unhealthy for those on salt restricted diets. Water softeners are also attributed to higher water and sewer bills, cause your skin to feel dry, and make it nearly impossible to remove soap suds.  Although the benefits of soft water vs. hard water often outweigh the issues brought about by water softeners, an electronic water conditioner offers the best of all worlds. Let’s examine some benefits of using an electronic descaler as an alternative to water softeners.

Improve the Life of Your Plumbing

Hard water forms lime scale on the walls of your pipes. Over time, lime scale buildup clogs your pipes and prevents the free flow of water. This eventually results in the need to replace the pipe(s).  Unlike water softeners, a water descaler system not only prevents lime scale in your pipes, but eliminates current lime scale buildup.  This may take some time depending on how much lime scale is currently in your pipes, but it sure beats replacing them!

Protect Appliances

Hard water is detrimental to coffee makers, dishwashers, electric kettles, refrigerators, ice makers, etc. Using hard water on appliances that utilize water leads to the buildup of lime scale which reduces their efficiency. An electronic water descaler eliminates lime scale, thus improving the function and prolonging the life of your appliances.

Health benefits

Hard water can irritate sensitive skin, especially when used for bathing or shaving. Hard water tends to make the skin very dry, thus making it difficult for a smooth shave. An electronic water descaler makes your skin feel softer, allowing for a much better shave with less nicks and cuts.

So, as you can see, conditioned water has its advantages over softened water. Check out our comparison chart to see the benefits of using an electronic water conditioner as an alternative to water softeners.


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.
