What does Water Scale look like?
Water Scale is most visually evident as hard white or off-white deposits which buildup in faucets, showerheads and drains. Water Scale leaves deposits on dishes, glassware, sinks, countertops and on vehicles that were just washed. Most Water Scale formations are hard and very difficult to clean. Scale can also be seen on fixtures such as toilets, bathtubs, showers and appliances like coffee and icemakers. Swimming pools and spas can experience scale build up on tile and pump equipment. Evaporative coolers, cooling towers, boilers, car washes, irrigation systems, processing equipment, paper pulp mills all experience Scale water problems. Because Scale forms a "coating" it can significantly effect thermo-transfer and reduce the flow of fluids. Scale build-up
and other Water borne sedimentation can increase the cost of operating water-using equipment because of breakdowns, unplanned shutdowns, process contamination, high product reject rate and/or expensive parts replacements.
