Hard Water Treatment Made Easy
ScaleSafe is the right solution for homeowners needing hard water treatment. With the ScaleSafe Home system, treating hard water is as simple as installing our compact unit in your water line at the master shut off, where your water line connects to your home at the street level, or in the line that leads directly to your water heater. ScaleSafe is applied as a solid block, and feeds a controlled, consistent amount of ScaleSafe into the water stream. The ScaleSafe Home dispensers are specifically designed to treat water flows at your home. And since ScaleSafe works on water volume, not time, there is no waste with its use.
Once our hard water treatment product has dissolved, you simply replace it. (A quick glance at the refill line on the translucent housing unit lets you know when the replacement is needed.) ScaleSafe requires no electricity, very little maintenance, or guesswork, and the lack of moving parts makes the system virtually maintenance free.
Many hard water treatment systems are costly and require professional installation. The ScaleSafe Home system is easy to install, and most “do-it-yourself” or professional plumber installations take less than two hours. In return for this simple installation, you’ll reap the benefits! In as little as 30 days, you’ll see a reduction of the mineral scale buildup (limestone or other calcium carbonates) that corrodes your appliances, and you’ll see improved efficiency in your energy use.
Treating Hard Water with ScaleSafe Home
Hard water treatment is necessary in preventing mineral scale buildup in equipment like water heaters, dishwashers, showerheads, coffee makers, and ice machines. The ScaleSafe Home system not only prevents this buildup, but also removes existing scale and prevents corrosion. Our system acts as a scale inhibitor by distorting the shape of the calcium molecule to prevent the formation of crystalline calcium carbonate. By combining with the calcium in the precipitated calcium carbonate, ScaleSafe descales your pipes, while forming a microfilm coating that deters both future scale and corrosion.
When scale buildup from hard water accumulates on heat transfer surfaces, the results are often structural damage to metal pipes and premature equipment failure. Both issues are a cost inefficiency, leading to increased energy consumption and higher utility bills for the homeowner. In fact, as little as ¼ inch of buildup can result in a 55% increase in energy usage. In addition, the mineral accumulation from hard water restricts water flow through pipes, leading to clogged water pipes, reduced water pressure, frozen faucet valves, hard to remove soap film, white deposits on shower heads, clouding of glassware, poor sudsing of soaps, and more. With the ScaleSafe Home system, these problems are eliminated.
