Water Heater Shield

Water Heater Shield

A cost effective, high quality device to protect water heaters from damaging scale. The Water Heater Shield is installed on the feed water line just prior to the water heater (tankless or traditional). The 5 micron high efficiency, high performing filter removes dirt, silt and sediment. Siliphos® media within the filter chamber prevents scale and stops corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the element, lining and other surfaces within the water heater.

Removes Sediment

Sand, sediment, and debris can come from the water lines that supply your water from the city. Leaking pipes introduce untreated water or debris that seep, contaminate, drain, or flow into the water supply. This sediment in city or well water can clog faucets, damage appliances and even change the taste of your drinking water.

Stops Hard Water Damage To Maintain Your Warranty

Over 85% of U.S. households have hard water with high levels of calcium and magnesium. Hard water can destroy plumbing and shorten the life of water-using appliances by forming scale. Water heaters in particular are at risk. Mitigating scale build-up can extend the life and efficiency of both tankless and traditional water heaters.

Saves You Money

All water heater manufacturers require scale inhibition treatment in hard water areas or else their warranty may be voided. Left untreated, hard water can cause significant damage and potentially costly repairs as well as raise energy costs. A general rule of thumb says that 1mm of scale on a heating coil can increase energy costs by 15%.

How Can It Benefit Your Home?

Over 85% of U.S. households have hard water with high levels of calcium and magnesium. Hard water can destroy plumbing and shorten the life of water-using appliances by forming scale. Water heaters in particular are at risk. Mitigating scale build-up can extend the life and efficiency of both tankless and traditional water heaters. In fact, most if not all water heater manufacturers require scale inhibition treatment in hard water areas or else their warranty may be voided. Left untreated, hard water can cause significant damage and potentially costly repairs as well as raise energy costs.
