Causes of Hard Water

When water percolates through deposits of chalk and limestone that are made up of magnesium carbonates and calcium, hard water is formed. Many things can show you have hard water at home. Formation of limescale in water heaters and pots, lack of foam formation when using soap, etc.

The Cold “Hard-Water” Facts:

Showerheads on hard water lose 75% of flow rate in less than 18 months Tankless water heaters failed after only 1.6 years with hard water. On treated water they maintained original factory rating. Operating costs were also 34% less on 20 gpg water.

Gas water heaters are up to 24% more cost efficient on treated water

Electric water heaters can accumulate as much as 30 lbs of scale shortening the life of the heating element

You can use 50% less soap and detergent with soft water. Hard water makes soap work harder.

Salt-Free Scale Prevention

How Our Technology Works

  1. Our core technology has a twin catalytic effect. The first is the shape which creates turbulence and a very small pressure drop (much less than a softener). Pressure drops create limescale.
  2. The second effect is the alloy acts as a battery, generating a very small electrical current as water makes contact with the alloy.
  3. The electric current creates the condition needed to rearrange the limescale molecule to a benign soft non-bonding crystal.
  4. These suspended soft crystals just stay in the water instead of sticking to pipework and hot water cylinders. They just pass harmlessly through your system and down the drain.
