Scale Build-Up Hurts Your Water Ionizer

Posted by Alkaline Water Plus on

Can Calcium Build-Up Affect a Water Ionizer’s Performance? Yes! It absolutely can. And, here’s why…

A water ionizer creates two streams of electrolyzed water: alkaline and acid. The alkaline water is rich in Calcium. Calcium is good for you and contributes to creating alkalinity in the water, but is also a naturally occurring crystalline mineral which creates lime. Lime is another name for Calcium Oxide [formed from a reaction with calcium and the oxygen in the water]. Because of its crystalline structure, Lime tends to scale up on the inside of pipes…and will clog up the inside of your water ionizer if you don’t have a good method of cleaning the plates and pipe works on a regular basis. Even with a good cleaning method, people in “hard-water” areas have reported lime-build-up problems with their water ionizers from time to time.

Lime Scale

Here are some anti-scale devices that can save your water ionizer!

  • AlkaViva Anti-Scaling Device. This is a small pre-filtering device which transforms the Calcium crystals into a spherical shape which will not cake or scale up, and so it makes it impossible for the scale build-up to occur. How it does this is by adding carbonate ions to the water, it turns the Calcium ion into a Calcium Carbonate ion. Calcium Carbonate crystals are spherical shaped to be harmless & anti-scaling for your water ionizer, and Calcium Carbonate is a healthy mineral for you to consume. It’s also environmentally friendly.  This device is as easy as 1-2-3 to install as well, and doesn’t take up any room on or under your counter.  The filtering media is all natural, NSF and Water Quality Association certified.
  • There is also an external Anti-Scale device that we will be selling shortly [call us about this one.] So, if you have a water ionizer that doesn’t have a mineral port, and you are needing an anti-scaling device for your water ionizer, give us a call.
