The Siliphos (Polyphosphate) in the filter has been employed for decades by water utilities in controlling hard water deposits in water systems and continues to be a very popular treatment method for sequestering minerals in the water. The polyphosphate dissolves into the water very slowly as it passes through the conditioner and coats the hard water minerals and aragonite making it impossible for these agents to precipitate out of the water to create limescale build up.
Inhibits Limescale and Prevents Corrosion.
Because of its phosphate and silicate content, Siliphos will also inhibit corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on metal surfaces. A Siliphos concentration of 2-3 ppm is sufficient to achieve both of these effects. The Siliphos will also help to slowly remove existing scale in the plumbing system and old pipes particularly if it consists of brown scale (iron oxide). Experience shows that scale, deposits and/or corrosion are not only found in galvanized metal pipes but also in copper pipes and even in some plastic pipes.
