Eddy Electronic Descaler Review
Best Salt-Free Water Softener

Problems with Lime Scale – Not Anymore!

If you live in a hard water area (like I do), it can be a real pain in the butt. Everywhere you look there is lime scale on your chrome fittings like showerheads, faucets, and sinks and it really takes some scrubbing to get it off.

My website has a lot of information on how you can go about making your tap water safer and tastier to drink, but I couldn’t forget about the fact that hard water can reduce the life of your pipes as well as appliances like your kettle, dishwasher and washing machine.

For that reason, I’ve decided to add a review on the Eddy Electronic Descaler to my website. All hard water areas contain dissolved compounds such as calcium, manganese and magnesium. These troublesome compounds when dry, attach themselves to the inside of your water pipes which can reduce the level of water pressure you receive, and in the worst cases clog them up altogether. Not to mention all that horrible “white stuff” that turns up on the outside of various items around the home.

Now, before I get on with telling you about this wondrous invention, I would like to make one thing clear: this is not a real water softener, it’s a descaler.
I say this because I’ve come across a number of complaints that this unit doesn’t do the job it’s supposed to, and in most cases it’s because people are expecting softer water.

Now that little point is cleared up, let’s take a look at how the Eddy can help reduce the number of commercial cleaners you have to buy, and help to extend the life of anything that comes into contact with water in the home.

The System Used

The technology used with this unit is something called a complex magnetic wave. When it’s installed, you will have two coils that sit neatly around your incoming water supply pipes. The magnetic waves produced break down compounds that turn into lime scale. This means it will no longer stick to the inside of your pipes, and the amount of white residue you come across is vastly reduced.

You should note that this descaler will NOT change the chemical hardness of your water, and there is good reason for this. Calcium for instance has been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease, and as we all know many of us take supplements for some of the other compounds I have mentioned because of their health benefits.

Eco-Friendly and Easy to Fit

This system does not require salt which really reduces the overall cost of running something like this, and because magnetic waves are used there is no adverse affect on the environment as a result. This unit doesn’t require you to change anything with regards to your current plumbing system, and just about anyone will be able to install it without the help of a plumber.

Do bear in mind however, the type of metal your pipes are made from. This descaler will work with all types except those made from iron or lead.


Yes, warranty! This is one of the only descalers on the market that comes with a no quibble, risk free 12 month money back guarantee. The manufacturer is so confident this unit will work for you they also offer a lifetime repair or replacement guarantee.

In Conclusion

If you’re looking for a system that will reduce the amount of time and energy you spend trying to remove lime scale around your home, and want to extend the life of various appliances this unit is certainly worth a look.

It may not be the cheapest descaler on the market, but if you weigh the initial cost up against how much you’re spending on cleaning products, or how much it might cost you to have water pipes replaced, it really will pay for itself.
Plus, it is still way cheaper than a real water softener, especially if you include the cost of installation and the cost of adding salt.

Lime scale in your home can be a thing of the past, and if you’re looking for some great deals on price why not take a look at what Amazon has to offer at the moment?
