Scale buildup. We’ve all seen it at one point or another in our lives. It’s that white, mineral-heavy casing that is responsible for damaged equipment, clogged pipes or faucets, and tile discoloration. It can even happen to our dishes. Have you ever seen that cloudy coating on the outside of your dishes after they run through the dishwasher? That’s scaling too.

How Does Scaling Happen?

Scaling occurs frequently in many homes and is caused by having and using untreated hard water. Very basically, when hard water travels through a home’s pipes and other systems, minerals begin to build up, causing a crust or scale to form. Many homeowners call the visual scaling that occurs in their homes “limescale.”

Problems Associated With Hard Water Scaling

Scaling can cause extensive issues throughout a home, restaurant, hotel, or any other structure with running water. Because many people use water for washing, heating, and parts of the cooling process, dealing with scaling issues throughout a home or other building can be a massive job if not dealt with proactively. If let go for too long, homeowners and business owners alike may have to replace the expensive systems that keep their homes comfortable and their clothes clean.

Of course, it’s not only these systems that will be affected by hard water that is left unchecked. Everyday appliances that can be damaged or broken by crystalized scaling include:

  • Water heater

  • Faucets and showerheads

  • Dishwashers

  • Coffee makers

  • Ice machines

  • Garbage disposal systems

  • Hoses

  • More!

Anything that has water passing through it can be impacted by hard water scaling. So what’s the solution?
