Scale Control Systems

Remove existing scale and prevent future buildup with an all-natural solution to hard water problems.

Charger’s scale control products were especially developed and manufactured to protect against the formation of scale and remove already existing scale from pipes and heat exchange surfaces.

The Anti-Scale Water System that Works to Reduce Hard Water Deposits

Hard water build-up sticks to your pipes, water-using appliances, faucets, fixtures, and can even shorten the life of your water heater. 

This causes your home to use more energy to heat your water, and it causes you to use more cleaning chemicals to keep your home spot-free.

The Charger Scale Prep water filter helps prevent scaling so your home can stay cleaner and your expensive appliances can last longer. This system also helps dissolve existing scale buildup!

Charger’s Water Softeners

The “classic” water softening unit operates on the basis of ion exchange; exchanging calcium and magnesium ions in the water for sodium ions. When a water softener is used, the result is not only soft water, but also increased sodium content in the water supply.

Charger’s Scale Prep System with SP3 Media

The technologically advanced Scale Prep SP3 Media is an innovative solution that prevents all of the negative effects of calcium and magnesium, while allowing the positive health benefits to remain.

Protect Your Home and Prolong the Life of Your Appliances without the use of Salt or Harsh Chemicals

Traditional water treatment systems require ongoing maintenance and salt refills. Lifting heavy bags can be tough for many people and regenerating with gallons of water add extra cost to owning a softener system. Charger’s Scale Prep system allows you to enjoy many of the benefits of soft water without the headache.

Charger’s Scale Prep System is a more simple, convenient, effective, and healthier way to Protect Your Home

Remove existing scale and prevent future buildup with an all-natural solution to hard water problems.

Organizations like the National Research Council have found that the hard water minerals, calcium & magnesium, can be good for your health. The Scale Prep system leaves these minerals in your water for drinking and cooking benefits.

How does the Anti-Scale System from Charger Work?

Scale Prep’s SP3 Anti-Scale Media was specially developed and manufactured to protect against the formation of scale and remove already existing scale from pipes and heat exchange surfaces.

The Scale Prep’s SP3 catalytic media prevents the formation of scale and eliminates existing scale by accelerating the transformation of the calcium and magnesium minerals into harmless “Nano” particles. As the nano particles flow through plumbing systems, they do not attach to pipes, fixtures, valves, or heating elements; the result is 99% scale prevention and removal!

Scale Prep’s SP3 is successfully used in a number of applications for both residential and commercial usage. Virtually maintenance-free, chemical-free, and salt-free, Scale Prep’s SP3 media water conditioners are a cost-effective alternative where benefits and overall performance surpasses our competitors.

What are the Requirements to Install the Charger Scale Prep System?

The Scale Prep System must be the last form of water treatment equipment installed with the exception of an RO unit or POU filter.

Recommended to use a carbon pre-filter for municipal applications (carbon pre-filters reduces the negative effects of high chlorine on the media and lowest levels of iron .4ppm. Note: You must change out your carbon filter to keep proper flow rates).

Recommended that you soak the media for 60-120 minutes before start up. This assures that the media is saturated with water and will not accumulate at the top of the housing when filled with water.

Do not apply phosphates or any other anti-scalents either before or after the Scale Prep System.

Scale Prep Systems are only partly filled with media; systems must have an adequate freeboard.

Scale Prep Systems must use a Spider Flexible Hub and Lateral to ensure proper fluidization. (For larger tanks, use a hub and lateral with a garnet underbed.)
Scale Prep System operates in the UPFLOW mode ONLY!!!! The tank connections are normally opposite from the standard down flow configuration.

Recommended to use a flow restrictor that is sized to the proper tank and water flow.
