This company makes a lot of different filters. This weekend I was researching for a water softener and found this. It removes the hard water and scale build-up but doesn't use salt, electricity, no waste, no controls etc. Just a media filled tank, water in, water out. Made for point of use or entire house and commercial. http://www.watercontrolinc.com/scale-control.aspxWhats a good simple water filter for lime? Had a customer bring it up. Thought I would ask the Zonies.
Try it on your own house first. Lots of gimmicks out there that don't work. Sometimes, the manufacturer will send you a test model to try out.This company makes a lot of different filters.

I'm calling them on Monday to get more info. We have extremely hard water around here but folks don't like the slime feel of a regular water softener and the hauling around of salt etc. I'm sure other companies make this same thing, just found this one here in Mn.
Start a Maintence Program for the old folks. Like every 3 months you come in and add salt and clean the unit. All for 100.00 a year!Check out the specification sheet at the bottom of the link. It's a cylinder filled with a media that breaks down the hard scale and good for three years. Instead of the hard white scale buildup on your fixtures it can leave a soft white powder that can be wiped off easily.
If I do decide to carry this I definetely will ask for a unit for my own house and then include it on the website too. We have a need for this here, could be a good seller. Lot's of elderly here that don't want to mess with the heavy bags of salt etc.
Plumber makes a good point. Seen one that a customer had asked about before, all it is, is a little control box and you wrap a couple of wires around the pipe. Plastic, metal, whatever. It looked like a sucker buy to me. Called the company, asked if they would send me one to try, and they never did. I don't know how wrapping a couple of wires around a pipe would remove things from the water inside the pipe.
We had a bad drought here a while back and i guess the water has more lime than usual.
