As a general rule ‘water conditioners’ have pretty much always used salt as a means of removing excess hardness (calcium) from water. Homeowners and businesses experiencing problems with calcium wind up with scale deposits in water lines and crusty deposits on faucets and other bathroom fixtures. Scale in the lines lead to higher heating and energy costs as well as increased usage of cleaning agents/detergents and high repair costs for appliances damaged by constricted water flow.
Certain areas of the United States have put restrictions on the use of salt-based water conditioners because of environmental concerns. Water conditioning units that use salt require discharging and replacing of salt periodically and questions have come up regarding how to properly dispose of the salty wastewater.
Naturally when a problem like this arises, someone comes up with an answer:
Saltless Water Conditioner and Anti-Scale system Eagle A 2000-FG is a new break-through technolgy, designed to remove water hardness without a use of salt. The system is designed to convert calcium in water (which is a main element found in hard water) into calcite crystals of nanometer size, which no longer cause lime deposits. The calcium then is simply rinsed away.
The system also removes existing scale deposits from pipes and heat exchange surfaces, which is called descaling, and can further protect the system from future formation of scale. So, it can pay for itself in days!
Eagle A 2000-FG Anti-Scale Water Conditioner specifications:
+ In First stage, Water flows through a 20″ sediment filter cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. Also extends the life of the filter media and prevent damage.
+ In stage 2, water flows through an Eagle Anti-Scale media tank.
+ In stage 3, water flows through a 20″ solid carbon cartridge that removes volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC’s), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents *
+ In stage 4, water passes through a .01 micron Ultrafiltration (UF) membrane. Ultrafiltration (UF) is an important purification technology used for the production of high-purity water. UF is effective for the removal of colloids, proteins, bacteria, viruses, parasites, protozoa and pyrogens (e.g., gram-negative bacterial endotoxins), other organic molecules larger than .01 micron, and most other water contaminants known today.
Wastes no water, uses no electricity
