CITY WATER – SALTLESS WATER SOFTENERS OR DESCALER SYSTEMS
What Is A Saltless Water Softener or Descaler?
Saltless or salt free water softeners are better known as Descalers and are used for City Water only. A Descaler doesn’t actually soften the water, so there is no slick soft water feel, but it does keep the dissolved scale minerals from being deposited on the inside of pipes, dishwashers, and washing machines. Wherever water sits, slight scale will still form, but with the use of a Descaler, the scale will be easy to wipe off. Limestone scale is a crystalline form of calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is unusual in that it has a variety of crystal forms, which include marble (very hard and brittle), chalk (very soft and easy to disintegrate), and lime scale (very hard and difficult to remove). Lime scale, deposited from untreated water, forms a long thread like dendritic crystal. These dendritic crystals weave and bond together, which is why calcium scaling is so difficult to remove. The correct electromagnetic or catalytic charge can modify the crystal forming characteristics of lime scale. The crystals formed are smooth and microscopic, so they do not cling together. Instead they wash through the water system, preventing bonding with any surfaces.
Over the years there have been many unsuccessful attempts to design a saltless softener, which include magnets, electromagnets, RF devices and catalysts. However, all have proven to be ineffective.
The Scale Stop Descaler system has achieved a 99.6% effectiveness rating, which is far more effective than any other softener alternative. It has been tested and proven successful for over six years in homes and businesses. It is popular for the condo and apartment owner who does not have room for a softener and its brine tank, or the necessary drain needed to backwash the softener. The media in the Scale Stop is long lasting and is not consumed by the reaction of the calcium hardness to the crystals.
How Does Scale Stop Water Conditioner Work?
The Scale Stop System provides protection from scale forming throughout the house by converting the hardness mineral, which interferes with soap lathering, into harmless, inactive microscopic crystals, that are released and washed down the drain. This system does not use salt, chemicals or electricity, and does not remove beneficial minerals from the water.
Atomic sized nucleation sites on the surface of small polymer beads convert dissolved hardness into microscopic crystals.
Once the crystals grow to a certain size they are released from the bead. The crystals in solution keep the hardness out of the water so that it can’t form scale or interfere with soap.
