Conditioners replaces water softeners

Conditioners replace water softeners

Physical water conditioners are devices that prevent the build-up of hard limescale in a non-chemical manner. They achieve this by influencing the dissolved minerals, calcium and magnesium in a way that prevents them from forming scale (calcium carbonate) in your water pipes, heaters, and appliances. Physical water conditioners work in your water with varying degrees of success, based on many factors including water flow, hardness, operating temperatures, and water chemistry. The following information presents a sense of available water-treatment technologies and their advantages, as well as their shortcomings.
Magnets and Electromagnets These were the first physical water conditioners that appeared after the discovery that water flowing over magnetic rock did not build up scale. These can appear in the form of permanent magnets or electromagnets. The drawback here is that water must be moving for the magnets to be effective — essentially requiring that your water is flowing constantly. This is never the case in residential use. More importantly, there is no reliable scientific evidence to prove that the claimed benefits are actually produced.

New Report Finds Tap Water Contaminants in Every State


New Report Finds Tap Water Contaminants in Every State
According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), nearly 77 million people in the United States were served by water systems with violations of the Safe Water Drinking Act. This post from the NRDC states directly in its very first sentence: “America has a drinking water crisis.” That was written in response to a study conducted by the organization that found more than 80,000 reported violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act by community water systems in 2015.
The Safe Drinking Water Act is a law established in 1974 that protects drinking water supplies throughout the nation. The NRDC analysis found violations of this law across the country in every state—with the most offenses coming from Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Georgia.
In this Water Quality Products article, Erik Olson, NRDC health program director, notes two key challenges America is facing when it comes to maintaining safe drinking water:
“The problem is two-fold: there’s no cop on the beat enforcing our drinking water laws, and we’re living on borrowed time with our ancient, deteriorating water infrastructure. We take it for granted that when we turn on our kitchen tap, the water will be safe and healthy, but we have a long way to go before that is reality across our country.”

Legionella Control with Efficient Water Conditioning

Early Spring is a good time for facility operators to prepare their building water systems for the warm months ahead, and to consider safe and sustainable ways to prevent legionella, which forms in numerous water systems besides cooling towers. Legionella is not a new strain of bacteria, but with continuous improvements in the efficiencies of systems and building practices, these bacteria could be more difficult to control in some areas that chemicals have difficulty reaching. HydroTech Solutions is a distributor of HydroFLOW that provides electronic water conditioning to control bacteria, scale, and corrosion in water systems. HydroFLOW controls Legionella and algae in cooling towers, potable water systems, and water heaters with a frequency that extends throughout a water system.

Chemicals should be used in water systems according to regulations, and when used with HydroFLOW the volume of chemical use is reduced between 50%-75%, and water purging/ blowdown is decreased by more than 50% in most cases. HydroFLOW reduces chemicals, water, and energy use as a sustainable water management technology for water systems of any size.

Water is Scarce

Alarms are sounding all around the southwest

Water is scarce.

Municipal government's knee-jerk response is to ask everyone to save wter in their homes. Necessary, of course, but modestly effective since these are essentially voluntary efforts.

Technology seems to be completely ignored.

There are stunning technologies that can save huge amounts of water; technologies that have been in common use for years in parts of the world who have acknowledged and dealt with water scarcity.

Healthy Pools and Spa's

Offensive chlorine smell, foggy water, algae problems and mineral build-up can lead to high maintenance fees. If your pool or spa suffers from any of these problems, we have the answer... HydroFLOW is an environmentally friendly, non-invasive, easy-to-install solution that will greatly reduce the time and money you normally invest in pool and spa maintenance. Using a 150 KHz sign wave to propagate a decaying signal into the water. This sign wave will charge the negative and positive ion of calcium and magnesium in the water and they will cluster in suspension not on the walls of your pool. The HydroFLOW water treatment system disinfects de-alkalizes and conditions water without the use of costly chemicals. Fine particles in the water flock together, and are filtered or flushed out of the system. Bacteria and algae control for pools & hot tubs The HydroFLOW system helps municipal pools save money by reducing the need for expensive chemical treatments to combat algae and bacteria. Algae buildup is a costly problem, requiring expensive clean-up programs and creating high operational costs in recreational and residential swimming pools, spas, water features. HydroFLOW can reduce operational costs and extend the life of your equipment. This is a healthy solution for your clients, children and family. Here are some of the things that HydroFLOW will provide…

Iron and Sulfur Bacteria Issues

Iron Bacteria
Iron bacteria are generally more common than sulfur bacteria because iron is abundant in ground water. Iron bacteria are oxidizing agents and combine iron or manganese dissolved in ground water with oxygen. A side effect of the process is a foul smelling brown slime that can cause unpleasant odors, corrode plumbing equipment and fixtures,
and clog well screens and pipes. If conditions are light, the bacteria can grow at amazing rates, rendering an entire well system useless in just a few months. Signs that may indicate an iron bacteria problem include yellow-, red- or orange-colored water; rusty  slime deposits in toilet tanks; and strange smells resembling fuel oil, cucumbers, or sewage. Sometimes the odor will only be apparent in the morning or after other extended periods of non-use.
