Why a Booster? “It’s like adding a turbo charger”
The ScaleStop Electron Booster™ is a supplementary outside source of power connected to the ScaleStop Water Conditioner. The Booster™ generates and releases electrons via a weak electrical current, into the water as it passes through the ScaleStop system.
In order to understand how scale forming can be prevented, you need to understand how it is formed initially.
Scale build-up occurs when minerals present in water (Calcium and Magnesium) bond with each other. The one is positively charged and the other negative, thus the attraction –similar to magnets.
The electrons generated by the Booster™, neutralize the natural electrical charge of the minerals present in water. By neutralizing the charge, these minerals simply stay in suspension instead of being attracted to each other. * By preventing these minerals bonding, they simply stay in suspension and are flushed away.
