Hydrosmart removes calcium scale from exposed surfaces and from pipework and fittings. It dissolves the scale layer progressively, and also prevents further buildup of scale. Hydrosmart breaks the bonds between minerals to soften water and descales all downstream shower nozzles, taps, washers, pipe work and plumbing fixtures. The lifespan of heating elements and white-goods is increased, often dramatically. The Hydrosmart unit needs no maintenance with some users now in their 15th year of use.
Lawns and gardens
Lawns and gardens thrive on Hydrosmart, when water is high in salt, bicarbonates, iron, magnesium or other minerals and compounds. The technology produces benefits to plants by delivering minerals and other nutrients more efficiently to roots. Less fertiliser is required to achieve good growth after installation of Hydrosmart. Scientific tests using Hydrosmart have shown significant benefits for plant growth.
Savings through less chemicals
Household cleaning products contain sodium hydroxide, lauryl sulfate and other powerful chemicals. When water is high in minerals these cleaners combine with them to produce streaks and stains around the house. With Hydrosmart, less cleaner is required, and streaking and staining are avoided. It is a simple, sustainable and effective approach to improving your home cleanliness. As well as using less chemicals, no filters and no maintenance are required, Hydrosmart provides unlimited volumes of conditioned water to your home and garden.
Water softening and soap lathering
Hard water contains high levels of minerals which interfere with lathering of soap. By breaking up these minute mineral particles, lathering is greatly improved. Dishes, surfaces, and garments are more effectively cleaned when lather is present.
Cleaner clothes, softer garments
Hydrosmart reduces the size of mineral particles, to give the best washing results ever. Minerals and dirt are no longer trapped in the garments, so the need for chemical fabric softeners is reduced. After installation, softened water is now available at all the outlets in the home.
Hydrosmart reduces spotting and stains on glassware, and on cutlery and crockery in the kitchen. Additionally, because Hydrosmart produces softer water, it protects the dishwasher and maintains sinks in their best condition. Removal of scale and streaks means surfaces glow and sparkle.
The descaling action of Hydrosmart confers numerous benefits, such as reducing microbial proliferation. An increase in flowthrough of mineral particles in pipework results in reduction of bacterial and fungal growth in bathrooms, kitchens and laundries. Microbes require minerals as nutrients. With less minerals remaining in the pipework, microbial growth is retarded. As such Hydrosmart augments your existing water purification or filtration system. When installed upstream of a filter it increases the life of the filter by preventing the filter clogging with minerals.
Treating algae in ponds and on surfaces
Algae are unsightly, and they feed off minerals present in your water. Hydrosmart alters the ecology of biofilms, which can be found coating walls that are left damp, and which are also present in ponds and other water bodies. By shifting the equilibrium of the mineral and nutrient balance to enhance flowthrough, it has been found that Hydrosmart can successfully treat problematic algae buildup, and can reduce or replace biofilms.
Hydrosmart is a scientifically sound and sustainable way to: prevent scale, enhance plant growth, extend appliance life, and obtain an array of health and lifestyle benefits. The unit is safe as it produces electromagnetic fields modulated at low frequencies that specifically dissolve minerals, and it draws less power than a light bulb. Trials conducted in Australia and New Zealand by PhD qualified scientists have demonstrated reduction in mineral particle sizes correlated with descaling and softening, and a highly significant growth advantage conferred to living plants under treatment.
Corrosion relies on precipitation of minerals on metal surfaces. By opposing precipitation, Hydrosmart controls corrosion. Additionally, existing precipitation can be cleared. As corrosion is neutralised, infrastructure such as pipes, taps, tanks, nozzles and valves not only last longer, but work better.
Removal of scale deposits deprives bacteria and parasites of a breeding ground. Hydrosmart also treats shower and bathroom mould, and enhances the activity of detergents and cleaning agents. Users report improved hygiene and satisfaction in control of issues such as skin eczema, scalp dryness and hair dryness.
