What does a water conditioner do?
Salamander Pumps’ catalytic water conditioners treat hard water and prevent scale build up. They use an alloy core to create turbulence and a catalytic reaction, which changes the calcium carbonate, found in the water, from calcite to aragonite. There are no chemicals or salt used in this process, the calcium carbonate is still present but can pass through the system without depositing as scale. Nothing is added or removed from the water, so the water is safe to drink.
The treated water also has a greater capacity for absorbing scale, so pre-existing deposits are gradually broken down and absorbed.
