ScaleRID uses state-of-the-art technology in electronic water conditioning. ScaleRID's electronic field continually fluctuates, covering a wide range of frequencies; treating the widest range of mineral concentrations at any rate of water flow.
Similar units on the market have a higher price and are often of inferior quality. Permanent magnets have been shown to condition hard water, but they are only effective within a certain flow "window" and at higher and lower flows the performance drops to zero. This is the reason why permanent magnets have mixed performance results. Magnetic particles can also build up inside the pipe where the magnets are placed, eventually causing blockage or reduced water flow.
With a salt-based soft water system you need an expensive softener system and then you must periodically add salt. Salt-based softeners do not always cure the limescale problem and can make water unsafe for people with certain health problems.
With the ScaleRID, within the first week you will see elimination of new scale deposits, and loosening of existing scale. Soap will lather easier, your skin will feel softer and your hair will be more manageable. Spots on dishes will be reduced.
