Prevention of scale build-up on heating elements, walls, and bottoms of water heaters is a must. According to the U.S. Bureau of Standards, 1/4″ of scale build-up on heating elements requires 55% more energy to attain the same temperature. This translates into real dollars wasted with an inefficient water heater, not to mention the added expense of repairing and replacing overworked water heaters due to scale build-up. HydroBlend will not only prevent scale build-up but also remove existing scale.
In most commercial applications, periodic de-scaling of boilers and water heaters is required. This requires down-time, labor, and the storage and use of aggressive acid-based cleaning agents. In commercial applications, water softening is often not a viable water treatment choice since the initial equipment cost and space requirements are high. Furthermore, salt costs and storage space for large commercial applications are high.
