Answer: 
Yes, as per the instructions. Our unit was easy to set up in our well house. We set our windings around the 1.5 inch PVC pipe headed to the main house, again as per instructions. Once the wiring was done it was as simple as pluging the unit in.

Answer: 
They say no but I have. As far as the winter and freezing im going to put it in a box and insulate it. I did have it in a plastic box with a top and I put hioles for the wires but I think it got to hot so I have it covered from possible rain. The hotter it gets the harder the water is down here in Texas.

There are no published independent tests of effectiveness. Some customers have said that they are satisfied with their units, but if I spent a lot of money on this I would be ashamed to admit I've been had. There's probably $20 worth of parts in it.

Answer: 
Yes it works well outside the house. Ours is installed from the outside too. You just have to have enough wire to connect to the base unit. Our unit is inside the garage and the wires thread through a vent. They make a unit that can be outside and withstand the weather. You just have to be sure you can plug the unit into a power source.

Answer: 
You need electricity to connect it to your main water line where it meets the house. A wire is wrapped around the pipe blasting the water in the pipe with an electric charge. We used a plumber - he'd never seen one but read up on it and was very impressed! No filters to change.

Depending on your layout you may be able to do the wrapping outside. There are limits from unit distance to wrapping. Check YouTube for some great videos. Good luck! We are happy with ours, about a year old now, we eliminated salt based softener after several months and water quality is great. Were using up all our left over bags of salt for dishwasher with great results.

Deluxe 0-19 gpg Electronic Water Conditioner is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 285.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Promises a lot so we shall see! I had a compicated installation, but finally got it done. The ease of installation obviously depends on the layout of your situation. Make sure you adhere to the infomation about placement distances. I had no outlet close by so had to add power cord. So far my toilet ring seems to be disappearing, but only had it operable a week or two. Even if it ends up not working up to all the hype, it is here too stay as it took too long to get it installed! If possible, I will update after 3 months which is the recommended time to see results. I am 70+ years old woman and I did it myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I've had this installed for over 2 years now and can definitely see a significant reduction in calcium buildup in my coffee maker and on faucets. I had a water softener prior to the scale blaster and was very tired of all the maintenance and salt requirements. The scaleblaster works with no maintenance and very little power. I'm very happy

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purchased this model a little more than a year ago. It appears to do nothing except put out fairl... Purchased this model a little more than a year ago. It appears to do nothing except put out fairly major radio interference signals. Have to unplug it when the recording studio is in use. It is a considerable distance from this unit. Zero reduction in scale at shower heads , faucets etc. Zero reduction in the amount of salt that goes into the water softener. I'm only giving it a 2 rating instead of a 1 rating as I have very " difficult" water. Thought this unit would help but it has not. Not worth the electricity that it uses. Michael Dyer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than expected Purchased this unit when it went on a steep discount as the deal of the day. Installation was easy enough. It goes much quicker if you keep the wire from tangling while completing the wrapping process. We have a small rancher with limited plumbing. Our shower head and sinks were always getting coated with calcium (along with the dishwasher). Somewhere along the two week installation mark my wife noticed the glasses and silverware started to look shiny and clear. We're well water based and I noticed a general improvement in water pressure. The shower and sinks are now spot free and our clothes are much brighter coming out of the washing machine. This thing works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works great if you don't have hard water! You need to have your water checked for the hardness level before buying. If you have hard water at all, this product does not do anything. Our waters hardness is 36. So what I'm saying is that it's "Worthless!" The first one I bought within 3 months of a new hot water heater I had to replace te heating elements. I called the company and they recommended the larger one. So I paid the difference and they shipped it to me. I installed it and the same thing happened. 3 months later I was replacing elements again. We also had lime build up on shower heads and on our granite counter tops. The fancy lights are cool but that's it. Our plumber said they are worthless in an area that has hard water. We had a water softner installed and never had any issue with hard water again. People I really recommend doing your research on this product. I wish I would of. I have 2 of these I will gladly sell and take your money. But I have warrend you. So don't kick yourselves later when you remember reading this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scale Blaster I purchased with the hope of my faucets would stop clogging up from the hard water scale. All I can say it works, not sure how but it does. Only have had it installed for a couple of weeks and have noticed a big difference in water pressure. Customer service is fantastic. I had installed it to close to an elbow and called to order a replacement wire with expecting to pay for it and was told no charge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blast away Since installing the Scale Blaster, we are seeing fewer spots on our dishes when we take them out of the dishwasher as well as less buildup on the shower door
