Clearwave Salt Free Water Conditioner Installation

The ClearWave™ is a revolutionary new product that works without salt, chemicals or changes to plumbing. The ClearWave conditions hard water to help dissolve existing scale and help prevent new scale from forming. It uses microprocessor technology to electronically generate inaudible waveforms which help keep calcium carbonate particles (scale) dissolved in water. This ClearWave treated water continues to dissolve scale as it flows downstream. Over time, the ClearWave helps solve hard water problems in the entire system, including pipes, water heater, shower heads and appliances.

A salt-free water-conditioning system functions between the main water line that enters a home and all of the water receptacles in a home, treating the water as it flows into the home’s plumbing. The Clearwater CW-125 Salt Free Electronic Water Conditioner is a great option if you’re looking for an easy, salt free, compact, and inexpensive filter option. It works on your whole home water system by using electromagnetic waves to prevent and help break down existing hard water build up. If you have had a water softener and your water is greater than 10 – 12 grains per gallon, and you like soft water you will likely not like a salt-free conditioner. If you see someone saying they have a “salt free water softener”, its technically incorrect. Softening removes the hardness ions, whereas no salt conditioners do not.

Use less soap, and remove scale from your pipes - continuously, automatically and for only about $5 in electricity a year. Clearwave is the most advanced computerized anti-scale device available today. Its computer chip is programmed to bombard water passing through your pipe with over 200 different electromagnetic low frequency pulses. These electromagnetic pulses have been scientifically proven to increase the electromotive attraction potential of the water to mineral salts. The result is that the mineral salts (mainly calcium bicarbonate) stays dissolved in the water instead of converting to insoluble calcium carbonate and attaching itself to the inside of pipes as scale. Existing scale in pipes, water heaters, toilets and faucet’s begin to soften and dissolve away

  • Mount the ClearWave onto the pipe by routing a wire tie through the two holes on each end of the Clearwave housing base.
  • Wrap the antenna minimum 7 times around the 1' water pipe on each end of the ClearWave (For pipes 1 1/4' to 1 1/2' use two units in series).
  • Make sure one antenna is wrapped clockwise and the other antenna is wrapped counter-clockwise.
  • Secure the antenna wire tight against the pipe with a wire tie.
  • Plug the power supply into a standard electrical wall outlet.
  • When energized, the ClearWave Modulations indicator lights start flashing sequentially indicating that the ClearWave is functioning properly.

Units can be combined and used in series for larger pipes.

Time frame and what to expect:

Day 1: The Clearwave action immediately starts to loosen existing scale on both the hot and cold systems.

Day 5 and Onwards: Scale begins to break down and come off water heater elements and tanks. Most microscopic particles will flow through your water system. You may notice small particles in the water coming from the hot water tap.

Day 10 to 16: It should be easier to wipe and clean ceramic, plastic, glass and metal surfaces. By now the quantity of bath soap, dish soap, laundry detergent and laundry softening agents can be reduced.

Day 16 and Onwards: scale should have softened on faucets, showerheads, and frequently used appliances such as coffee makers. With the continuing break down and reductions of scale from the heating surfaces of water heaters, water should heat up quicker using less energy.

After 1 - 2 months: Any Scale Crust or stains in toilets or under facuets will have started to soften and will be easier to remove. No new stain or crust should form. ** Depending on the water hardness in your area, full effects can take up to 12 weeks, especially if the system has been heavily scaled over many years.

First of all, what’s the difference between a salt based water softener and a salt free water softener? Salt based water softeners use a process called ion exchange which is basically exchanging hard ions (hardness minerals which are calcium and magnesium) for soft ions which are in this case sodium. Salt free water softeners use a more complex process where hardness minerals are not removed but they are retained, turning them into hardness crystals which will not adhere to your pipes and you will be avoiding this build-up in your plumbing. Salt based water softeners are more effective in softening water and salt free water softeners are actually water conditioners. But I want a water softener that’s not using salt. Which are the best salt free water softeners? We have gone through the top rated salt free water softeners and here are the top 5!
