Scalewatcher Whole House Electronic Descaler and Anti-Rust Water Treatment System is a compact, computerized electronic water conditioner that will descale your homes existing plumbing, prevent new scale from forming and save you money from the moment it is installed. The Scalewatcher technology treats water in pipes with magnetic and electric field which results in mineral crystallization that will not easily adhere to pipe walls or plumbing fixtures. The treated water remains chemically unchanged therefore will retain the beneficial and healthy minerals like calcium and magnesium.
  • For homes with well or municipal water
  • For homes with 2 or more bathrooms
  • Indoor use only
  • Single coil simply wraps around existing pipeworks for easy installation, no professional plumber or electrician required
  • Reduces hard water without the use of chemicals or salt
  • Prevents and removes existing scale on hot water heaters, boilers, tankless water systems and water-related appliances
  • Suitable for all types of pipework
  • Water is kinder to your skin and hair
  • Ideal for hard water up to 50 gpg
  • 10 year warranty

Questions & Answers

Can we put it in the well pump house or does it have to be installed in the main house

Can we put it in the well pump house or does it have to be installed in the main house
Asked by: john
Can this be installed in our crawl space? It would be protected from rain, snow and wind there, but cold or hot weather.

Is there any actual scientific proof that this works? I went to the manufacturer's website and what I read was nonsense. There are no studies, no proof (other than testimonials, which of course aren't proof). From chem1 website: "Dubious water-treatment schemes, Junk science in the marketplace: The Scalewatcher purports to operate on the impressive-sounding principle of “DDMF – Dynamic Disturbance of Molecular Forces” (whatever that is supposed to be!) The principles of Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) are applied by passing Scalewatcher’s patented signal through a coil wrapped around the pipe to be treated. The signal consists of a frequency modulated (FM) wave form within the audio frequency (AF) bandwidth. This inaudible sonic frequency signal sets up a dynamic field around and through the coil, pipe and water, and modifies … the nature of the electrical charges and this ionisation effect thus alters the growth rate and pattern of the crystals in general and on specific planes. [link] Nobody apparently has told these people that MHD phenomena have only been demonstrated in plasmas (ionized gases), not in water. They claim that it not only makes lime scale precipitate out of solution before it can coat the pipe, but it causes existing scale to dissolve. Unfortunately, the UK Advertising Standards Authority (the British analog of the U.S. FTC) disagrees: 'The Authority told the advertisers to remove claims from their advertising that stated or implied Scalewatcher could eliminate lime scale'”

Here is a link to the study by the US Army Corps of Engineers (Dated 2001) : https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&ved=0ahUKEwjd2fuyyNbaAhWOiOAKHaaXCEsQFghBMAI&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dtic.mil%2Fget-tr-doc%2Fpdf%3FAD%3DADA399455&usg=AOvVaw2-9eDPb2hGfhlIBbpZg8pG The report states the following conclusion (to be fair, while they include Scalewatcher as a listed electro-static device, they did NOT test it specifically - if there is another study of it specifically, I could not find it): Conclusions The results of this study show that the amount of mineral scale formed for the control versus device heat exchange tubes was relatively constant, and proved to be an effective insulator of heat transfer across the tube surface. The scale formed was found to be a type of calcite (calcium carbonate), and had the same crystalline structure for each heat exchange tube. There was no discernible effect on the crystalline structure of the scale formed by any of the tested devices. This study concludes that these results indicate no clear advantage for any of the three devices tested over a control for the inhibition of mineral scale formation or the corrosion of copper. The test protocol was designed to simulate the method of production of hot water used in many larger institutional type settings that employ a shell and tube heat exchanger for the production of hot water. These findings do not support the claims of the manufacturers regarding the ability of their respective devices to prevent mineral scale formation in hot potable water systems.
