Works on All Types of Pipe

Limescale deposits and soap scum are costly nuisances that can be eliminated with Scalewatcher. Appliances and fixtures that come in contact with hard water will operate much more efficiently and will have a prolonged life expectancy with Scalewatcher installed.

Prior to the Scalewatcher Electronic Water Conditioner, homeowners had two basic options to control hard water issues: continuously using hazardous chemicals, or investing in a water softener. Our affordable, eco-friendly solution is salt-free, chemical-free and maintenance free, so you can rest easy knowing it is safe for both the environment and your family.

Your new electronic water conditioner may make your water lather up a little more, skin feel smoother, and hair more manageable. You will experience less soap scum allowing soap and detergents to work more effectively. Cleaning becomes less of a hassle as stains on sinks, basins and toilets can now be easily wiped away.

Second Month of using Scalewatcher;

Hard lime scale deposits that have accumulated in your household pipes over the years will dissolve back into the water. No new scale formation will take place. Black mold that forms insides pipes, in the toilet bowl, on shower curtains and on the shower door may be reduced. Shower heads will no longer clog up with lime scale.

Third Month of using Scalewatcher;

Your water heater, washing machine, dishwasher and appliances that make contact with water will operate more efficiently. Your water pressure and temperature of hot water may increase, saving you on your electric bill. You will notice brighter, whiter, softer and longer lasting clothes, towels & sheets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our residential Scalewatcher units will work on COPPER, PVC, CPVC, and PEX pipe.  If you have galvanized pipe, you will need to replace that small section of pipe of where the signal cable is wrapped on the incoming cold water line with any of the above mentioned pipes.  This only involves about one foot of pipe

Install the unit on the incoming water supply line going to the house or building, and always before the water heater. You want to make sure all your pipes are cleaned out of limescale deposits. If you are unable to locate the incoming supply line before it splits, follow the cold water line back as far as possible from the water heater and install there.  This may be the case if your home was built on a slab.

In most circumstances, the homeowner can install the unit themselves.  No special tools or plumbing work is required.  For slab built homes, you will need to locate the incoming pipe as it enters the house.  The unit can be installed outdoors if needed, but make sure it is either the SB-175 or SB-MAX models, as they are in weatherproof boxes.  Always feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Yes, we are only concerned about the location where you wrap the coil at.  The same thing can be said if you have galvanized and copper pipe.  If the location where you want to wrap the pipe is galvanized, you will need to replace a small section of 12 inches with copper or PVC pipe.   The descaling process will work downstream on all types of pipe after the signal cable location

We recommend the average air temperature to operate Scalewatcher at 32 to 122 degrees F.  The unit will operate at temperatures below and over those numbers, but not for long periods of time.  The unit should be installed in an area that is ventilated.

Yes, the signal cable is a special wire and is not readily found in hardware stores.  You can purchase additional signal cable wire packages from Scalewatcher, which includes the zip ties.  However, if you need a short-term replacement, an 18-gauge, tin coated stranded copper wire will work.

No, you cannot install Scalewatcher on two lines.  The signal is only strong enough to treat one line and one building the size noted.

Designed with state-of-the-art microchip technology, the Scalewatcher takes up very little space and mounts on the wall. Energy consumption Less than 4-8 Watt/hour.

A simple calcium hardness water test will give the reading instantly.  All pool stores will perform this test or have test kits for sale.  Do not use the test strips as they are not accurate.
No, the water hardness level and TDS will remain the same.  Scalewatcher is a water conditioner –not a water softener.  Water softeners remove calcium from the water, Scalewatcher does not.  Calcium is good for our metabolism, so why remove it?
Scalewatcher dissolves the scale – molecule by molecule right back into the water – where it used to be, so the process is gradual.  In a worst case scenario, your aerators may clog up a little in the showerhead or faucets.  Simply clean them out and it should not be a reoccurring problem again.
Yes, over time it will.  Depending on how much water the household uses and how bad the scaling is, the process takes about 3 months to fully descale the pipes.
Scalewatcher will work on all of the above mentioned types of pipe equally as well as the others.
Yes, unless you are gone for long periods of time, such as a second home and want to unplug it.  It is entirely up to you.
There is no maintenance at all. No salt to carry around. No batteries or filters to change. No moving parts. You may want to occasionally check to see if the two LED lights are on in case of a power surge. Otherwise, we do suggest you drain and clean out the bottom of your hot water tank after a couple of months of installing the Scalewatcher to remove all the scale that has accumulated.
This depends on several factors. If you enjoy the extra soapsuds produced by the water softener, then definitely keep it. The Scalewatcher will create extra suds, but not nearly as much as a water softener. If you live in an area that is banning water softeners, then you have found the number one alternative. If the cost and maintenance on a water softener is bothering you, then again, this is your number one alternative. If a doctor has put you on a salt restricted diet, again Scalewatcher is the answer.
To realize the full benefits of Scalewatcher, please allow up to a couple months.  The descaling process does not happen overnight.  This is why we offer a full 90-day money-back guarantee.  If you ever have any questions on the installation, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service department.  You can email us photos of the installation for analysis if you have any questions.  Depending on the circumstances, you may notice more soap lather, a softer feeling on your skin and hair, increased water pressure and “hotter” water.  This means your water heater will be working much more efficiently now.
Yes.  Scalewatcher works on hundreds of applications in the commercial and industrial fields where lime scale formation is an issue.  There are several models that can handle up to 48” pipe.  Units have been in use in over 70 countries since 1995.  Many of the world’s largest companies use our equipment.   Applications include power plants, cooling towers, boilers, wastewater treatment plants, cruise ships, hotels, agriculture, military plants, health care facilities, condos and much more.
We get many people who claim Scalewatcher helps out on rust stains, but have no scientific proof that it does.  If the stain is part of a calcium/magnesium deposit, it will go away when the calcium/magnesium is dissolved.
Scalewatcher does not kill bacteria, but it does remove the main breeding ground for bacteria – lime scale formation in the pipes.  When the scale is removed, so is the breeding ground for bacteria.
Scalewatcher will not remove anything from the water.  We only affect the calcium and magnesium molecules.  Scalewatcher will not remove chlorine from the water.  We do however, get many complements that the water tastes better – perhaps from the breeding ground of bacteria being removed.  Again, there is no scientific proof of this.
