Most water supplies are usually saturated with large amounts of minerals, such as calcium carbonate (lime scale), calcium sulfate, iron and manganese, which can cause corrosion and scaling. Scaltrol stops mineral scale by introducing a measured amount of sequestrant into the water.
The Scaltrol SC-50 includes both the housing and a cartridge. It is one of the most popular units for residential applications. The SC-50 will treat up to 50,000 gallons of water per cartridge. The SC 50 has 3/4″ female connections.

A layer of scale 1/4″ on a heating element will decrease the efficiency and will subsequently increase your energy bills by up to 40%. Scaltrol stops mineral scale by introducing a measured amount of sequestrant into the water. The mineral molecules, which have a positive charge, are attracted to and held in suspension by the negative charge of the sequestrant. The mineral molecules are unable to join together, so scale is unable to form.
