Why am I getting so much calcium build up, and what can I do to eliminate the problem?

Posted by cara knapp on

Calcium hardness levels tend to be high throughout the southwest, when it comes to tap and fill water.

Over time, that number only increases as calcium-based products are added for balance or treatment and also as water evaporates; since the calcium and other minerals contained within the evaporated water are left behind.

Calcium is necessary for proper water balance, so there's no real and effective way to remove it from the equation all together. However, routine use of an effective scale control product -- sometimes referred to as a sequestrant or chelant -- can make a notable difference and impact on the frequency of cleaning due to deposits and build-up.
