Inline Scale Reduction Water Filter that is used on Crystal Quest Bottleless Water Coolers and Reverse Osmosis systems or other similar systems in hard water to prevent calcium and scale deposits. Cation resin filter that works just like a water softening cartridge except no regeneration is requred, which extends life of the cartridge. Install this on any standard 1/4" line for bottleless coolers, coffee machines, ice makers , refrigerators and reverse osmosis systems where a scale reduction is desireable.
Two types of media is available. One is a standard water softening media used in traditional water softeners. Second media is anti-scale media used in scale reduction systems.
Anti-scale media can be used without regeneration, but it may be affected by things like permament hardness (silica, sulfate, phosphate). Water softening media is not affected by these but has a shorter life span and may need to be periodically regenerated (soaked in salty water) to perform.
