Product Overview

Prevent lime scale deposits in your household pipes and protects the life of your water heater, dish washer and washing machine with this ScaleBlaster Deluxe Electronic Water Conditioner. This computerized water conditioning system solves the problem of hard water without harsh chemicals, maintenance or salt, which is a healthier option for those on salt-restricted diets. If you have poor water pressure, formation of soap scum, a lack of hot water and an increased water heating expense lime scale deposits are most likely the cause. After the use of this water conditioner, lime scale deposits will wipe off easily or disappear and soap will later up more leaving your skin smooth and hair healthier. It is simple to install with no plumbing required and produces a scientifically developed electronic signal that hits the resonant frequency of the calcium molecules causing them to lose their adhesive properties.

"Doesn't Work" What were you expecting really? If you bought this to lengthen the life of your pipes, appliances (hot water heater) then your measure of works takes years to determine. If you are thinking about it making your water 'soft' then --you didn't buy a water softener. I replaced a hot water heater around 10X the cost of this unit. I bought one of these and set it up just in front. My thought is that if using it makes my hot water heater last more than 10% longer, then the ScaleBlaster has paid for itself. Anything more is pure icing.

What I read is that the minerals stay in the water, the molecules are just lined up by the magnetization so they no longer clump together. This effect lasts for 72 hours which should be time for your hot water tank to empty and refill several times over. You would still need a filter to get the minerals out of your drinking water.

can you install this on galvanized pipe?

Asked by KC June 1, 2020

Answers

NO! Per the manual it can only be installed on PVC/PEX/CPVC/Copper pipes. You can replace a section with CPVC for example and wrap the coil on that CPVC section, but if the coil is wrapped on Galvanized it will not work. Please give our technical department a call at 727-562-5186 to dive deeper in.

Manufacturer recommends installing after the water filtration. That's how I installed the unit, and it works great.

does it make the water taste better?

Asked by pdq March 8, 2017

Answers

Well logically it seems it should not accomplish much in that regard; but if it is freeing up the scale inside pipes and fittings that should result in adding these freed up minerals to the water flowing from the system; this should cause an increase in water hardness, at least initially. After a period, when the pipes are clean, it would seem there would be little or no effect on the chemical composition. Whether the taste and smell of water is more pronounced with the smaller ions or the larger coagulated particles would need additional study.

More foam! It is hard to know if it really works. So after 3 months or so I did a 'lather' test. I filled identical unused flasks with the same amount of dishwashing liquid and the same amount of water from 4 different sources. Shook them all together, the same way. See picture for result. From left to right: 1) taken from outside faucet (not 'treated' by scaleblaster), 2) water from kitchen fountain (has a Whirlpool WHEEDF filter on it), 3) straight out of the kitchen faucet (no filter), 4) out of the fridge water dispenser (has a filter on it as well). So 1 was not treated by Scaleblaster, and 2-4 were. I think that it is pretty clear from the picture that the Scaleblaster ones have more foam than the not treated one (number 1, on the left). Not sure why the fridge dispenser water is less foamy, probably because it was colder....

I just installed the ScaleBlaster so it is too early to provide a long term review. I have hard well water. I don't want to use a salt water softener. The alternative water softener solutions I've seen advertised are often hokum. I installed a Panther water stabilizer many years ago and noticed little to no difference in the water. After installing the ScaleBlaster, I noticed an immediate difference in the water. The water is "lighter". The water appears to be more bubbly and is similar to soft water. One installation issue I ran into is the warranty card requires you to enter the serial number which is on the bottom of the unit. The installation instructions should instruct you to fill out the warranty card BEFORE you install the unit in case you do not have access to see the serial number after the installation. I called the vendor and they said the warranty card did not need to be submitted and the unit is still covered under warranty. It's too early to tell if there will be a significant difference in the water. I'm optimistic but will need to give it more time. The manufacturer recommends trying the ScaleBlaster for 90 days. The product has a 90 day return policy. I'll give it another 2.5 mos and see what happens. I'll decide at that time whether to keep it or return it.

The scaleblaster was on sale for about half of the typical price, so I figured it was the right time to try one. How's the installation? For me, it was a bit of a pain to install, since I have a slab house with no great access to plumbing. I wound up have to cut a hole in my drywall in the garage, which is where my hot water heater and loop are. Wrapping the wire 100 times around a pipe that was an inch or so from a stud on one side with drywall on another was challenging, and not something I want to ever do again. It took me around 2 hours to install, as there is a lot of wire to pull through with each wrap. I put an access panel over it to finish it up. The mounting was straight forward and went up quick. Does it work? Living in AZ we have pretty hard water with scale build up on faucets and even on our blender container. After a month of use it seems to be doing what it says. I've noticed that the scale has become easier to wipe off of the faucets, some just coming off on its own, and the dishwasher seems to be cleaning better with scale disappearing. Also, after I wash the blender container I turn it upside down to dry, which has been leaving a pile of scale where the water runs. I will say that soaps and shampoos appear to lather better as well. Would I recommend? In short, yes, I would recommend the scaleblaster. I like the salt free alternative and it appears to be doing what it advertises. However, with the other filters and softeners on the market, and having a loop already, I'm not sure this is the direction I'd go if I had to pay retail price.

I was initially very skeptical about this product and it's claims, but after using this unit for 2 months now, it has completely stopped the builtup of calcium and lime in my sinks and around my faucets. While the claims of it removing existing buildup on fixtures may be overstated, it definitely prevents any new deposits from occurring. I would definitely recommend this product if you have a hard water deposit problem. Please note it is not a water softener, it just prevents the mineral deposits from building up on the fixtures. This should significantly extend the life of all the fixtures that the water passes through.

I researched these a few years ago. I could not understand how they work. So, I passed on buying one. Recently, I upgraded from well water to Town Water. I replaced all my water lines with PEX. Installed new toilets, showers, faucets, water heater and boiler. Basically, all new plumbing. Still not sure how these work, but they were the Buy of the Day, and been around for 7 years now ... figured they can not hurt. Easy to install, once I ignored confusing Chart B in the manual (3/4" PEX is not Outside Diameter 1.05" with coil length 8.1") and instead looked at Scalebusters Install PDF, which states, "NOTE PEX Pipe for main lines is standard 3/4 inch for homes ALWAYS USE - SINGLE / 70 WRAPS". Everything is new. So, I have no hard water build up any where. I will know if this works in a few months.

I have replaced my water softener with Scale Blaster Deluxe 0-19 gpg Electronic Water Conditioner. It was very easy for installation. The first day after the new installation, we noticed the water felted different when taking shower. My wife complaints that we are getting white deposit on the cookware when steaming the dishes. I wrote to Scale Blaster questioning if I have not installed it right. They told me to see this link: http://www.scaleblaster.com/whattoexpect/. We should not really compare to the real water softener even it said the water will be silkier when using this electronics water conditioner. I think it was comparing using this water conditioner or not, but it does not even close to using a water softener. My main concern is the white deposit on the cookware. It is approaching the end of 90 days period. I think it is not working for me.
