Alternative to Water Softeners

Looking For an Alternative to Water Softeners?

You want to prevent hard water in your home, but you’ve looked at water softeners and just weren’t impressed. They’re expensive, harmful to the environment, and require constant maintenance including salt and filters. Is there an affordable alternative to water softeners? The answer is, YES!

The Electronic Water Conditioner – an Excellent Alternative to Water Softeners

An electronic water conditioning system such as ScaleBlaster not only prevents hard water damage, but is also an effective limescale remover.  ScaleBlaster eliminates existing hard water damage and ensures it doesn’t come back—for less than half the price of a traditional water softener. Best of all, water conditioning systems don’t require salt, chemicals or maintenance. You can install the system yourself instead of hiring someone to install a water softener

ScaleBlaster works to prevent hard water in every type of pipe—whether it’s copper, PVC, CPVC, or PEX.  It uses oscillating electronic fields which changes the shape, size and charge of calcium molecules, thus preventing lime scale from forming. Because of this process, a water conditioner such as ScaleBlaster is an ideal, eco-friendly alternative to water softeners.

The No-Maintenance Advantage

The savings a homeowner experiences over time is substantial. Not only is the ScaleBlaster water conditioning system less expensive to purchase than a water softener, but, you do not have to constantly purchase salt for it to be effective.  Most importantly, the system requires no maintenance.  If you add up how much it costs just to purchase salt and maintain a water softener, you will see that an electronic water conditioner pays for itself in just a matter of months.

Tips on Choosing the Right Water Softener Alternative

Tips on Choosing the Right Water Softener Alternative

Owning a home comes with much responsibility. One of the most vital systems in your home is the plumbing. Hard water will damage your plumbing and appliances over time.  The most efficient, economical and healthy way to combat hard water is by using an electronic water conditioner (also known as a water descaler system). ScaleBlaster is an electronic water conditioner.  It is considered a water softener alternative because it does not involve the cost or ongoing maintenance that water softeners require.  Let’s review a few tips on choosing the right water softener alternative for your home.

Test Your Water

You can buy a home water testing kit at a pool supply store, or, have your water tested by a professional. The hardness of your water will make a difference when it comes to the ScaleBlaster model you need to purchase. The SB-75 residential electronic water conditioner is designed for calcium hardness (Ca) levels up to 19 grains per gallon (gpg) or 325 parts per million (ppm).  The SB-Elite residential electronic water conditioner accommodates calcium hardness (Ca) levels up to 35 grains per gallon (gpg) or 600 parts per million (ppm).

Know Your Square Footage

You do want to make sure you purchase the correct size electronic water conditioner for your home. The SB-75 is designed for homes under 4,000 square feet; the SB-Elite is for homes up to 5,000 square feet.

Type of Pipe

Since the ScaleBlaster electronic descaling system is installed on the incoming water pipe of your home, it is important to know the type of pipe.  ScaleBlaster works on all pipes (Copper, PVC, CPVC, PEX and galvanized), however, one extra step is required for galvanized pipe

Don’t let hard water damage your pipes and appliances.  ScaleBlaster has residential models designed to suit your needs.  Be sure to check us out at The Home Depot!
