A: Yes Jan, Scalewatcher will break down the calcium molecules and keep your appliances running more efficiently. Over time, existing scale build up will be removed. My 30 year old dishwasher is testament to that. The inside looks better than the outside thanks to Scalewatcher treated water. Hot water heater elements as well as the washer have definitely benefited too.
A: The Scalewatcher 5 Star unit comes with a complete 10 year warranty. The life span of the units are still being reviewed as there are units being used that are over 20 years old at this time. Scalewatcher makes them to LAST! The only maintenance needed is to check the unit occasionally to be sure that the wires are connected and that the lights are on showing power.
A: No, Mickie is being dishonest. If this device reduces hard minerals like Ca and Mg, it can't be used as softner. There is no device as of today that conditions and softens your water. This is scientifically true!
A: The Scalewatcher units can work in tandem with a conventional softener or as a stand alone unit. Water will act and feel as if it has been run through a conventional softener but without that "slimy and slick" feeling left on your skin. Existing calcium scale build up will be broken down at a nano particle level and simply washed down the drain with continued use.
A: Everything you need is included in with the unit. The only additional tool you would need would be a screwdriver to screw the unit to the wall.
A: The only thing you would need would be a screwdriver to install a Scalewatcher prior to your new tankless water heater. All accessories and parts are included with your Scalewatcher purchase.
A: No, Additional gear is not required.
