ScaleBlaster is an innovative, computerized water conditioning system that solves hard water problems without the need of chemicals or salt. The product requires no maintenance and is simple to install, with no plumbing required. ScaleBlaster removes and prevents lime-scale deposits in household pipes. It will protect and prolong the life of water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines. Lime-scale deposits on shower heads, sinks and faucets will easily wipe off or disappear. Soap lathers up more, skin feels smoother and hair becomes more manageable. Enjoy healthier and better tasting water as well as brighter, whiter and longer lasting clothes, towels and sheets. Water softeners require salt, waste lots of water and discharge chlorides into the environment. They also require ongoing costly maintenance. For people on salt restricted diets, ScaleBlaster is a healthy alternative. ScaleBlaster is also ideal for tankless water heaters. First appearing in 1995, ScaleBlaster is now successful worldwide.

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lights flash, not much else happens I discovered this product when my water softener stopped working and I was pricing out worst case scenario remediation, i.e. full replacement. This seemed like a great solution, and I liked the idea of not having a bulky softener, not having to buy salt, and not having salt go out into the weeping bed. I have quite hard water, 29gpg, and after consulting with ScaleBlaster support, I was told this model could handle it. Installation was very simple, although time consuming to wrap a big bundle of wire 200+ times around a pipe. After installing, I waited eagerly for it to start doing its thing. After two months, I could see no difference in the water. I repaired my water softener ($10 in parts and a few hours of troubleshooting), and within two weeks the dishes were starting to get clean again. This confirmed in my mind the ScaleBlaster was not performing as advertised. I brought the ScaleBlaster back to HD for a refund under the 90 day money back guarantee. March 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Alternative to Salt I have had the Scale Blaster for over 2 months now and I am very pleased. We have seen a significant decrease of scale in our toilets and shower. Our one toilet had a hard layer of scale which we could not remove. Since we hooked up the Scale Blaster it is almost gone. I called the tech rep at the company before I bought it and he recommended what model I needed for my house and gave me some pointers in the installation. The instruction manual is clear and easy to understand. My old salt conditioner did not work this good and it was a pain always having to buy salt. March 24, 2015
