IonWays & AlkaViva has always made available to its customers a solution for hard water areas, to help protect the water ionizers from scale build-up. First, there was an inline pre-filter cartridge and housing that was costly and slightly difficult to install for some. Then, there was the EndOfScale water Conditioner which was much easier to install, but still a little pricey. Both solutions required “in-line” installations between the water source and the water ionizer.
Now, the solution to hard water and scale buildp is both easy to install AND more affrodable.
Announcing the Scale Guard Inserts
Your water professionals at AlkaViva are proud to announce the creation of the Scale Guard Inserts to address the issue of scale build up inside water inizers, caused by excessive calcium and magnesium in water .
These inserts are sold in packs of 2 for just under $30 and will last about as long as your water ionizer filter(s). A huge savings over the cost of the old EOS Mark II inline water filter.
Easy, affordable and effective!
Excessive scale is a challenge facing many homeowners, manufacturing and industrial water users around the world for decades. The build up of scale can cause damage or poor performance in hot water heathers, clothes and dishwashers, showerheads and other hot water using appliances/fixtures.
This situation is compounded when water is ionized since the scale causing minerals are more concentrated and will have a tendency to create scale build up on the alkaline spout and connected parts.
The traditional approach to hard water problems is sodium or potassium based ion exchange water softeners that waste water and dump high concentrations of salt into sewer systems and septic tanks. The IonWays Scale Guard insert is an environmentally friendly way to reduce the amount of scale in your water ionizer!
How and Where does scale develop?
Calcium naturally occurs is in a crystalline structure which makes it adhere to virtually any surface creating a hard scale deposit that can accumulate as time passes. These deposits can build up in your pipes and appliances in the home increasing electricity consumption while decreasing the efficiency of machinery(i.e. water ionizers) performance in industrial applications. Hard water deposits can also decrease porosity of soil resulting in high water consumption, poor plant development and overly compacted soils. A water ionizer is susceptible to scale build up on the stainless steel spout and connected parts.
How does the AlkaViva Scale Guard Insert work?
Aragonite crystals typically comprise hard water scale and have a similar feel to sandpaper that can stack very easily. The Vaterite crystalline form created by the AlkaViva Scale Guard is spherical, and since it is virtually impossible to stack ball bearings, scale build up is virtually impossible. It uses a catalytic process to dramatically change the crystalline structure of calcium carbonate to a smooth soft spherical structure that does NOT create damaging scale build up in your water ionizer. It is NOT magnetic nor sacrificial (does not add anything to the water) and dramatically reduces bothersome scale deposits from forming, and it also dissolves the existing calcium carbonate scale build-up (de-scaling effect!).
A vivid example of the impact of changing the physical properties of substances is the element carbon. Under certain conditions, carbon creates one of the hardest substances on earth (diamonds) and can also create an amazingly smooth lubricant when in a graphite form – yet each are 100% carbon.
The AlkaViva Scale Guard Inserts Also MicroCluster!
Independent laboratory testing concludes that another benefit of the materials used in the Scale Guard is that the water cluster size actually decreases. Micro-clustered water has been shown to enhance cellular hydration and detoxification.
NO maintenance needed. Simply place the insert into your calcium insert port (unscrews on top of the water ionizer). One insert will last about 6 months so the two provided will last for about one year. so ordering the set of two Scale Guard Inserts when you order your replacement water filters will ensure you’re fully protected from one set of water filters for AlkaViva water ionizers change to the next.
