End Of Scale (mineral buildups) from hard water prefilter for water ionizers
EOS Scale-Guard Inline water prefilter – Protect water ionizer from mineral / hard water buildup
Everyone who lives in a hard water area knows about the damaging effects of scale/mineral buildup on pipes and other machines.
Its good for health if you have hard water area, as you usually get great levels of magnesium or calcium in your water.
Its bad for machines if you have hard water because of the scaling these minerals can cause to piping and water appliances in your home.
The formation of scale on a surface is caused by crystallization of carbonate or sulfate ions, chiefly calcium or magnesium. Scale/mineral buildup from hard water forms because oppositely charged surfaces of the scaling mineral ions are attracted to one another and “stick” or adhere together.
The NSF certified media in the EndOfScale Water Filter for Scale prevention/mineral buildup is highly effective at inhibiting scale/mineral buildup formation.
By changing the surface charge distribution on the scaling mineral ions, End Of Scale (mineral buildups) from hard water prefilter for water ionizers reduces the attraction thus preventing the scaling effect.
End Of Scale (mineral buildups) from hard water prefilter for water ionizers doesn’t remove the calcium or magnesium in water – rather it makes these minerals in water almost impossible for them to attract and bind together.
The End Of Scale (mineral buildups) from hard water prefilter for water ionizers can also help remove existing hard water deposits. As the surface charge is shifted ion by ion on existing scale/mineral deposits, the bonds formed through attraction are broken; the scale/mineral buildup loosens and washes away.
The formation of scale takes months and sometime years to form. Similarly, this softening or cleaning effect occurs over a proportionately long period of time. Therefore it is highly recommended that the EOS filter be used on a clean system, when possible.
The easiest way to monitor the life of the EOS scale device is with your filter counter. It is optimal to install your EOS inline filter with your new UltraWater filter; so you would then replace them at the same time. Alternately you can note the level on your filter counter and replace when it reaches the same level. Either way, don’t wait!
