Calcium Build-Up Can Hurt Your Water Ionizer’s Performance
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.
Anti-scale devices can save your water ionizer!
Anti-Scaling Devices are small pre-filtering devices which transform 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.
This is one example of probably my favorite anti-scale device. EOS (Elimination of Scale) Device
