Preserving our precious freshwater supply

Q. How much freshwater is left on Earth
A. 2.59%.

Of this 2.59%, about 2% is trapped in ice caps and glaciers, leaving only about 0.592% of the world's entire water supply as available freshwater. That is not very much, is it?

we care about the environment

Now, imagine taking a 40-pound bag of salt and dumping it into the nearest lake, river or aquifer.

That is exactly what you are doing several times a year - when you use a salt-based water softener. Not too good for the environment, is it?

That salt discharged by softeners is not removed by wastewater treatment facilities, and just simply recycles right back into our water stream.

Another major problem is that the discharging of the saltwater from a water softener is done in the middle of the night, when little water usage is taking place, causing high concentrations of salinity draining into our freshwater supply at once.

This causes far more damage to our environement as high concentrations of brine is going into our precious freshwater.

No More Bags of Salt

With ScaleBlaster you won't ever need another bag of salt. No maintenance, ever! No filters to change.

Conserve Water Usage

The average water softener will waste over 6,000 gallons a year of water just to operate.
ScaleBlaster will require no additional water to operate, nor require any maintenance or filter changes.

Conserve Energy Usage

ScaleBlaster will remove lime scale buildup in your water heater and heating elements such as your dishwasher and cloths washer, making heat transfer to be more efficient. A recent New Mexico State University study concluded that lime scale buildup will increase your energy consumption by as much as 29% in gas water heaters and 21% in electric water heaters. Heating water is a major cause of high power bills.

why is freshwater important

Why is freshwater important?

The healthy growth of plants and animals is what allows human life to prosper. We are dependent upon our environment for water. The quality of the air we breathe and the food we eat is greatly determined by the quality of our water supply.

In turn, freshwater quality affects the plants, trees and animals we need in order to exist. How we take care of the water supply in our environment has a huge effect on the quality of life and the future of our planet.

Salt accumulation is increasing in the freshwater of our lakes, rivers, streams and aquifers. This salt makes it through the food chain and eventually arrives in our food and drinking water. Much of today's drinking water has twice the EPA limit of sodium content. Statistics show we consume two to ten times the amount of salt needed for a healthy existance.

From the Florida Everglades, to the lakes in Minnesota, to the California coastal waterways, we are experiencing a dramatic increase in salt content. This has been effecting the migration of bird populations who cannot tolerate the high levels of salt in their drinking water.

Countless species of frogs are dying off around the world as freshwater systems disappear.

Plants, fish and animals are forced to suffer from high amounts of salt in the freshwater supplies. Salt significantly reduces all aspects of plant growth. Root and shoot growth are reduced and tip burn is increased. Crops such as strawberries, lettuce and avocados are very sensitive to high salt content in their irrigation water.

For this very reason, water softener bans are in effect in many cities and states.

Water Softener Bans

water softener banned in 34 states

Because of brine discharge into our environment, water softener use has been restricted in 34 states by state, county and city levels. These restrictions have been put in place to protect either the local water quality of municipal water sources or protect agricultural and aquatic life.
