What is lime scale?

Limescale is the precipitation of calcium salts especially in hard water areas when water is heated or there is a pressure drop, causing hard scale to form in pipes, taps, washing machines, shower heads and combination boilers. Limescale combines with soap making it lather less. It leaves tidemarks on baths, sinks, basins, toilets and taps that are difficult to remove.


How does Scaletron work

Water is passed in a turbulent state over a very special metal alloy which alters the composition of the water near the alloy surface. This action changes the supersaturating ratio of the water and ensures that lime does not form hard lime scale.


Protection for your home or equipment

It inhibits the development of scale in both your hot and cold water systems reducing the formation of damaging hard scale deposits in appliances and reduces the cost of energy that the presence of hard scale causes in heating systems.
