What advantage does the CALCLEAR system have over in-line treatment?

Unlike other systems, CALCLEAR will not interfere with, or create a loss in, the flow and pressure. In fact, in some situations of heavy mineralised water we enlarge the section of pipe where the CALCLEAR windings are situated to reduce the velocity, ensuring the water has an adequate treatment time period which slightly decreases unwanted friction loss.

 

How does the CALCLEAR system handle iron buildup?

Existing calcium and carbonate buildup will be removed very rapidly from systems, however iron, being a mineral difficult to dissolve in water, will take considerable time to be removed. Initial chemical cleaning may be a good option to avoid unreasonable expectations of the CALCLEAR in systems where the blockages are already severe. This is best discussed with our technical staff who have a wealth of experience with treating iron and iron bacteria blockages. As everyones' experience has shown, water is very complex and a variation from site to site can be expected in results, time frames and outcomes.
