Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LRT1 ScaleBlaster
We had the Scalebuster installed for a few days when my husband noticed that when he washes the cars, he would have to hurry and dry before it spotted.... Well not now... It's not near as bad about spotting. He was shocked to have noticed that it helped with that so early. A month later: I have notice that my hair is softer not as dry and brittle. I wanted this to help with the scum on the shower, but I haven't notice a big difference yet( it may be to soon). The different soap products lather better. I hope with time it all gets even better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHPA1 Excellent Product and Value
Looked for a product to reduce lime scale. This proved to be the simplest to install with the least maintenance. No additional plumbing or drain lines. No additional cost of salt compared to other softners. Fantastic product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pontoonguy older model
I bought this product during one of HD's daily deals for $300, but returned it after talking to one of the tech reps at ScaleBlaster. This is an older model that can handle hard water up to 14 grains/gal. The SB-75 has a regular price of $300 which can handle harder water up to 19 grains/gal. The SB-75 has the same electronics as the SB-175 except the SB-75 cannot be installed outdoors. If you are going to put it in your basement the SB-75 is the much better choice. The only reason the SB-150 is more expensive is that it can be installed outdoors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spike46 Works better than expected
I installed the ScaleBlaster 150 about 2 weeks ago in a very hard water situation. A noticeable softening of the water occurred with in a few days. An unexpected bonus was it has mostly eliminated the rotten egg smell that had been haunting our water heater.
The only negative (other than price) is the LED monitor stays on "scanning" the whole time, which is not what the instructions manual indicated.
Wrapping the pipe (tricky) was made easier by putting electrical around the coil at every 10 wraps.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ken ScaleBlaster does not work!
Bought this 2 3/4 months ago. Wife loved it, I didn't see any
Difference. Round and round we went until.....................
We took a water sample in for hardness testing! The unit went back today, within the 90 day return policy.
I'd suggest if your interested in this product test your water professionally (call around to water stores or places that sell RO systems, they'll test for free) to see if it really works.......Sorry it does not!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RockNRon Simple design and easy to install
At this time of writing this review I believe that I have not owned
this product long enough to be able to give a fair opinion about it.
Even in the manufacturing specs it tells you it might take up to
90 days before you start seeing any results. Owning it for only 2 weeks now I have not noticed any difference at this writing.
I will need to update this review in 3 months to be fair to everyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RNelson Feels like it works
I installed the Scaleblaster about a month ago and I am happy with the purchase. I wish there was a way to "test" that it is actually working, and how well, but it does feel like the water for showers, etc. is softer and it seems to help with hard water spots.
