Scale deposits in water systems can cause a range of problems. Let’s dive into the details:

Hard Water and Scale: Hard water contains dissolved compounds of calcium and magnesium, which can lead to the formation of scale deposits. When water is hard, it prevents soap from lathering effectively, resulting in stiff, dingy laundry, mineral deposits on dishes and glassware, and high soap usage.

Scale buildup occurs in sinks, tubs, faucets, and appliances throughout the home or business.

HydroFLOW can help address hardness issues by reducing scale deposits.

Effects of Scale:Mineral scale can clog tubing, coat heating and cooling elements, and increase detergent usage.

It also reduces energy transfer and efficiency, leading to higher energy demands for cooling or heating and increased operating costs.

Industrial Impact:In industrial settings (such as power plants, heating, and cooling plants), scaling can reduce plant efficiency by blocking flow and decreasing heat transfer capabilities in piping systems.

Scale forms as a dense coating of predominantly inorganic material when water-soluble contaminants precipitate.

Visible Signs: You might notice white spots or a white film on shower doors, sinks, tubs, and other areas with heavy water usage, especially heated water.

Over time, scale can become unsightly and cause damage to water-using appliances, fixtures, and pipes, leading to costly repairs or replacements.

Remember, addressing scale issues early can help maintain the efficiency and longevity of your water systems!

So reach out to us at HydroFLOW Northeast to learn how you can address this without the use of harsh chemicals, salt or any changes to your plumbing.
