WATTS ScaleNet M8408/M8409 Home Anti-Scale Water Treatment
The ScaleNet™ anti-scale system was designed around a technologically advanced medium to prevent and completely eliminate scale without using salt, chemicals, or wasting backwash water.
Calcium produces scale on appliances, inside pipes, and other plumbing surfaces. This results to higher energy and heating costs and more repair expenses to appliances such as dishwashers, ice machines, coffee makers, and cooling towers in most commercial buildings.
Scale may also facilitate bacterial growth, which is a health concern especially in drinking water applications. On the other hand, calcium is important to good health, and calcium supplements are recommended if intake is reduced or completely void in your diet.
The WATTS® Anti-Scale system transforms calcium ions into stable calcium crystals which don't attach to pipes, surfaces, heat exchanger components or other hardware. The crystals are so tiny that they are rinsed away easily by flowing water.
• Aids in removing any existing scale
Lab tests done at the Watts test facility in San Antonio, Texas prove that ScaleNet anti-scale media virtually stops the formation of new scale and aids in removing existing scale. The tests were done in water with hardness levels of 17 grains/gallon and temperatures to 120°F.
