The ScaleNet Anti-Scale Salt Free Water Conditioning Systems transforms calcium ions into calcium crystals, which are stable and cannot attach to pipes, surfaces, hardware, or heat exchangers components. The crystals are so small, they are easily rinsed away by the water flow. This new template assisted crystallization (TAC) process utilizes no salt, so there is no need for a brine tank, and uses no electricity, and generates no waste water. Read more here

How Does the ScaleNet No-Salt Water Conditioning System Work?
Conventional water softeners are generally considered the most effective and practical way to reduce water hardness and prevent scale formation in pipes and plumbing fixtures. Water softeners, however, require salt to regenerate, and they must be backwashed periodically to rinse and refresh the ion exchange resin. Brine water discharges and the need to conserve water have challenged this conventional technology, and new methods to provide scale-free water are being considered.
Hard water is made up of calcium ions (Ca2+), magnesium ions (Mg2+), and bicarbonate ions (HCO3-). ScaleNet™ uses a template assisted crystallization, or TAC, process which transforms these dissolved ions into non-charged, neutral chemical bonds, of calcium and magnesium crystals. These microscopic crystals of scale quickly form in treated water and cannot attach to pipes or any surface, and are rinsed away downstream in a colloidal suspension by the water flow. These crystals are heat resistant and are unable to revert to its dissolved state.

No-Salt Water Softener Conditioning System
ScaleNet® is not a water softener. It does not add chemicals or remove any minerals, and is a scale prevention device with proven third party laboratory test data and years of successful food service and commercial applications. ScaleNet is the intelligent scale solution as a great alternative to water softening (ion exchange) or scale sequestering devices.
The ScaleNet media also has a descaling effect on scale already present in old pipes, hardware, etc. The water coming from the media is free of calcium ions. Calcium ions in the already existing scale are attracted to this unsaturated water and add on to the crystals that are now floating in the water. Existing scale is usually heavily reduced or removed within two months. In addition to preventing scale, ScaleNet also prevent corrosion. Switching to a salt free water conditioning system can not only prevent further damage to your pipes from your hard water but can help clear up previous damage.
