The Scalewatcher 5 Star Residential Pool Descaler works great in swimming pools and spas with recirculation lines up to 2" PVC. For homes with tankless water heaters or hot water tanks. Five year extended warranty is included. The system consists of the energizing unit and a coil which is wrapped around the pipe of the incoming water supply. The Scalewatcher electronic device treats the hard water with a patented technology by inducing variable electric fields with a continuously changing frequency. This forces the dissolved minerals such as Calcium and Magnesium to crystallize and remain in suspension in the water instead of adhering to walls of piping, faucets or heating elements of water heaters. The hard minerals now in suspension flow with the water and are discharged through the drain. This action stops any build up of hard scale. The capability of the water to dissolve minerals is also increased and this is the reason why hard scale layers will be softened, will slowly enter into the water stream, and will disappear down the drain. This effect will clean up all your piping, water heating element, including showerheads and faucets. The now unsaturated water will dissolve existing scale and remove it from the water system. Even deposits on the outside of the water system, such as around faucets and bathroom fixtures, will soften with regular contact with the treated water resulting in easier cleaning without the use of chemicals.
