Through the scientific process of Nucleation Assisted Crystallization (NAC), the catalytic media accelerates the transformation of the calcium and magnesium minerals out of the water solution into harmless, Nano-sized crystal particles.
As the crystals flow through the piping systems and equipment, the Nano structure of the crystals dissolves additional minerals removing any preexisting scale deposits.
After the old scale deposits are removed, a smooth 3 to 5 micron thick corrosion prevention layer is formed on existing pipes and equipment.

Q. What is “Hard Water?”
A. “Hard water” is the term used to describe water containing elevated concentration of calcium and magnesium. The amounts of these minerals determine the level of “hardness” which can be measured in parts per million (ppm) or grains.
Q. What is “Limescale?”
A. When calcium and magnesium found in water sticks to pipes and heating elements in appliances, they form a continuously growing whitish layer of deposit called “limescale.”
Q. How does Limescale buildup affect me?
A. Limescale that forms over heating elements of appliances acts as an insulator. As such, more energy is needed to transfer heat to the water, robbing your appliances of energy efficiency. It also will cause you to waste water as water will have to run longer before it comes out hot. Limescale can also cause appliance failure resulting in hundreds of dollars in repair work. Limescale in pipes will restrict the flow of water which will decrease water pressure throughout the house.
Q. How does the HydroCare Limescale Filter System work?
A. Using a revolutionary filtering technology called Nucleation Assisted Crystallization, or NAC, the HydroCare Limescale system will transform the calcium and magnesium into stable and harmless crystals which remain suspended in the water, but cannot dissolve and therefore, cannot form limescale.
Q. What about existing Limescale?
A. The NAC process described above forms crystals and microbubbles which interact with existing scale and slowly removes it.
Q. Do I need to use salt?
A. No. Unlike water softeners, there is no salt required which means there is no backwashing required and no sodium added to your water. It is a healthy and green solution to hard water problems.
Q. Does the HydroCare Limescale System remove healthy minerals?
A. No. Unlike water softeners which remove healthy mineral content from the water, the technology incorporated in the HydroCare system allows for the healthy minerals of calcium and magnesium to remain in the water, so you get the health benefits without the negative effects of limescale formation.
Q. Does the HydroCare Limescale System add anything to the water?
A. No. The system does not add anything to the water and the level of TDS (total dissolved solids) remains unchanged.
Q. Does the HydroCare Limescale System change the pH of the water?
A. No. The pH level will remain unchanged.
Q. Is there maintenance?
A. There is practically no maintenance required.
Q. How long does the filter last?
A. The Limescale filter itself can last 3-5 years, but the pre-filter should be changed periodically (9-12 months) depending on the cleanliness of your water.
Q. How much “hardness” can the system handle?
A. The system can handle up to 1400 ppm or 80 grains of hardness.
Q. Is the system certified?
A. The media in the system in ANSI/NSF 61 certified under the WQA.
Q. Where does the system get installed?
A. The system gets installed at the point of entry into the home. If you have a whole house water filtration system, it gets installed after that system.
Q. What are the dimensions of the Limescale Filter System?
A. The Limescale filter itself is 8″ deep (from the wall), 7″ wide & 24″ tall. The pre-filter is 8″ deep (from the wall), 7″ wide & 14″ tall.
