Softening & Conditioning: Choosing the Right Technology

Two water treatment professionals, Jerry and Allan Horner of Impact Water Products (IWP), who have a combined total of more than 60 years experience in the industry, recently offered their expert opinions on water softening and conditioning technologies.

When you think of water conditioning or customers ask you for water conditioning, does that term usually refer to point-of-entry (POE) systems or can it include point-of-use (POU) systems?

Water Conditioning System

The ScaleNet anti-scale water conditioning system eliminates hard water scale with virtually no homeowner maintenance, no salt additives and no electricity. The system prevents destructive scale build-up on pipe, valves and other plumbing system components using template-assisted crystallization technology, which attracts hardness minerals and converts them into harmless particles that float freely through the system.

Canine Connection

On Sept. 22, 2011, TOPS Veterinary Rehabilitation in Grayslake, Ill., initiated a pilot test to study the effectiveness of HydroFlow’s water conditioning technology on its canine therapy pools. TOPS is in the business of veterinary rehabilitation, and one of the treatment options it often employs is hydro-treadmill therapy. The facility has two 1,000-gal therapy pools supported by a large, pool-sized sand filtration system, a dual-speed filtration pump and a booster pump for the jets.

Sorting Out Scale Prevention

Scale not only clogs pipes and destroys valves, it also consumes energy. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Annual Energy Outlook 2012, more than 10% of the energy consumed in a home goes toward heating water.

Many consumers use energy-efficient products to save money. What many do not know is that energy-saving efforts can be negated if they have hard water and do not address scale.

Scale Reduction Savings

The Greenfield Village mixed-use community, located at the southern end of the Salinas Valley in Greenfield, Calif., experienced significant problems caused by limescale buildup inside its 128 apartments’ water heaters and recirculation pumps. In the four years since the apartment complex was built, limescale buildup was so aggressive that many of the water heaters and recirculation pumps failed. The complex’s owners faced a minimum cost of $600,000 to replace the equipment.

Gaining Acceptance

Going green is all the rage these days. Whether it is constructing a wind farm, installing solar energy panels on a roof or simply switching to CFL light bulbs in a home, Americans are finding ways to tap renewable resources and conserve energy.

The push for energy conservation is good news for the water quality industry: The Water Quality Research Foundation Energy Savings Study showed that using softened water in a home improves energy efficiency and can save homeowners money on heating costs.
