EcoProTechT Series

The EcoProTechT™ Anti-Scale solution from EcoWater addresses the typical problems associated with hard water* without the use of salt or chemicals and without the wasted water of whole home reverse osmosis and ion exchange processes.
* Reduces build-up of scale in heating elements, pipes, water heaters
* Reduces stains and white-crusty deposits on fixtures and dishes
EcoProTechT™ Anti-Scale product is NOT a water softener. It does not remove calcium and magnesium from water as softeners do. It is a scale management solution using proprietary PTT media. The PTT media converts hardness minerals from their ion form to a small crystalline form. This crystalline form does not readily attach to pipes, appliances and fixture surfaces. In fact, these microscopic crystals are simply rinsed away by the normal flow of water.

Features

  • PTT Anti-Scale Media – Reduces hard water scale from forming in plumbing and appliances.
  • Up-flow Design – Increases contact time with media for improved scale reduction and higher flow rates.
  • By-pass Valve – Allows for easy maintenance and servicing.
  • Coconut-Shell Carbon (available on ETF2102SM10C only) – Filters the water throughout the home without compromising water flow.  Removes chlorine taste and odor and eliminates the need for separate carbon filter changes.
  • Multi-Wrap Fiberglass Reinforced Tank – Durable; doesn’t deteriorate, rust, or corrode.
  • Distributors – Distributors exhibit excellent flow rates.
  • No Electricity – Simplifies installation, maintenance and reduces electrical hazards.
  • No Salt or Added Chemicals Needed – Uses environmentally friendly “green” technology for areas with water or brine-discharge restrictions.
  • Zero Waste Water – No backwashing required and zero discharge.
  • Standard Plumbing Connection – 1″ NPT Male connection for easy installation.  Larger 1-1/4″ and 1-1/2″ plumbing adapters available.

Q & A

Q: What is scale?
A: Hard water forms deposits that clog plumbing. These deposits, called “scale”, are composed of calcium
carbonate (CaCO3) and magnesium carbonate (MgCO3). Scale deposits grow over time and are highly
insoluble, making scale difficult to remove once formed.

Q: Why is scale harmful?
A: As scale builds up over time, it can have a significant impact on the efficiency of your water heater and
plumbing. The heating element within your water heater can become coated with scale, reducing efficiency and life – leading to increased operating costs. This same scale build-up will also lead to
restrictions in flow rate and water pressure and may eventually cause costly repairs.

Q: What is the difference between EcoProTechT™ Anti- Scale system and an EcoWater water softener?
A: A traditional water softener operates on the basis of ion exchange, completely removing the calcium and magnesium ions from the water. Traditional Salt Softeners require water for backwashing and must
be regenerated using salt or potassium chloride and require a drain to discharge the salty water and minerals. Since a water softener will remove the hardness ions, it will also leave your skin softer and cleaner, smooth hair, reduce soap curd making cleaning easier, and leave clothes softer and brighter and lasting longer without the hard minerals left trapped in fabric.
The EcoProTechT™ system will continue to leave the calcium and magnesium ions in the water, but will convert them into a crystalline form that is less likely to cause scale. This solution is a great alternative to a water softener in areas with mild to moderate hardness and in areas with water shortages or restrictions.

Q: What type of maintenance does the EcoProTechT™ Anti-Scale system require?
A: Since the EcoProTechT™ system does not require the addition of salt or chemicals, it is practically maintenance free. The EcoProTechT™ solution will need to have additional media added every 1 to 2 years based on your water use and water conditions and can be easily accomplished by your EcoWater Professional.

Q: Is the PTT media in the EcoProTechT™ Anti-Scale system from EcoWater safe for my family?
A: EcoWater PTT patented media is certified to NSF-61 for health effects and approved for daily household water usage.
