Technologies for Scale and Hardness Control
water is a perfectly natural phenomenon. It contains a high percentage
of minerals which are present as salts in solution. They are mainly Calcium
and Magnesium based, and they are essential to plant and animal life.
Unfortunately, they also cause problems. The main culprit is Calcium Carbonate
which is the salt responsible for hardness. It is equally responsible
for the formation of limescale, because of its rare property of dissolving
in cold water and precipitating in hot water. Most other salts dissolve
in hot water.
The loss in heating efficiency caused by the build-up of limescale in
your water system can be extremely expensive, not only in terms of heating
bills, but in appliance repair costs. The extent of the damage which can
be caused is not always appreciated, until it is too late.
you will notice...
Within three to four weeks, existing scale will become softer and will
be easy to break off or wipe away. You may notice cloudy water coming
from the hot taps and some loose scale deposits at the bottom of your
bath or basin. This is an indication that descaling has commenced. If
the system was severely scaled, an increase in hot water flow may be observed.
You may notice the water becoming hotter more rapidly, with better lathering
and the water feeling softer with more foam in the bath.
Benefits of Scalewatcher
Existing Limescale - Scalewatcher descales the Plumbing System, cleaning
out water heaters, cylinders and scale encrusted taps showerheads etc.
Let Scalewatcher do your descaling for you..
Fresh Deposits of Limescale Forming on Baths, Sinks, Shower Heads, Shower
Screens and Lavatories.
valves and shower mixers are kept scale free.
Softer Water. Soaps, Shampoos and Detergents Lather Better and Scum
Water is Better for Skin and Hair, and Eczema and Psoriasis can be improved
Energy and Cuts Bills because just 1 millimtres of limescale reduces
heating efficiency by 15%. Less limescale means fewer breakdowns and

risks with Scalewatcher
It has been
noticed that the physical treatment of water (as opposite of chemical
treatment, usually salts) has many beneficial effects. The proponents
of this type of treatment realize that it is different in form, capability
and results. Motivation for supporting this approach goes from jumping
on the "new technology" and making money to being a savior of
the environment from the devastation of salts, chlorides and other compounds,
along with the resultant water waste and the problem posed by these salt
laidened waters as they enter our treatment facilities.
In considering these issues we are attempting to clarify just what is
involved in physical water treatment with electronic systems, the realistic
results and the known benefits, both to ourselves and the environment.
We are the beneficiaries of this technology, evolved over the past 100
years or so. We do not add or take away any minerals in applying these
changes. Today we use low frequency amplitudes to alter the structure
of these hardwater minerals, causing the calcium bicarbonate (main hardwater
ingredient) to shift to a alternative form of calcium, aragonite, and
upon heating does not usually give further problems as the calcium carbonate
(scale) we normally encounter. It stays in solution and flushes out with
the water. In water there is usually a small presence of iron. This is
an excellent carrier of these frequencies causing a further ability of
the signals to travel throughout the plumbing system giving a better effect.
We wish it was this simple, however there are exceptions to the rule.
Most products are made, purchased and installed for the function they
provide. It's the perceived performance we want and value that causes
us to buy. We are all well aware that this should not be the sole criteria
for evaluation. Consequential and residual results should always be considered
when manufacturing goods or providing services. The current environmental
situation of the planet illustrates this fact all to well. Many of the
items we use daily take a toll on our real values. So there is a trade
off. We will adjust our habits and accommodate "Mother Nature".
In our treatment with the electronic system we sometimes encounter issues
with "total evaporative systems". We refer here to dishwashers,
steamers and the occasional droplet of water on a faucet. Since we do
not remove anything from the water the original calcium is still in the
water. This effect will be randomly noticed as the content of the minerals
can change. This is not filterable and so in the case of total evaporation
the residual calcium will sometimes show up as scale (soft or hard). Those
white spots are the calcium in the water. While we give them no notice
in the rest of the home we are annoyed with the results in the dishwasher.
We are waiting for two other sides of the story. The detergent and dishwasher
makers need to look at solving these issues also. Most folk will adjust
well and alter their habits. They are willing to try to find an acceptable
alternative and chose to effectively support "Mother Nature".
After all, everything we have comes from Her. Others who value this approach
have indicated this in letters we have received and we thank them for
this. They have referred and encourage others to move in this direction.
We are all together here and now. Together everyone achieves more!
