Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's doing something. If it's any help to those who might well ask.. "Is it doing anything?" (beyond the fancy row of red running lights that is..). Well it's doing something. Checking the output there is a semi-random multi-level rectangular type waveform fed to the coils. It changes about a little but has 16 levels and a pulse period of 20 uS with an approximate repeat every 400 uS. I couldn't measure amplitude since I was only measuring it with my phone. How this compares to other similar devices on the market I couldn't say. I will say that I have faith in the passive "electrolytic" through-flow devices which do work. I'm in a hard water area and have used an old Scalewatcher (Conceptually similar to this BWT device but now broken). I believe the Scalewatcher was helping with the shower it was feeding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lime Inhibiter Very easy to install with simple instructions I don't know if it works as only fitted 1 week ago hence the low score for performance

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inhibitor Bought this to replace an in line scale inhibitor. Dead easy to install and at least it won't leak like the one that was fitted previously. Only fitted it a couple of days ago but can already see a difference in the water

Can the inhibitor be fitted before the stopcock in the house

Asked by: Ray1962
The BWT Electronic Scale Inhibitor can be installed on the incoming cold main either before or after the stopcock.

Could the antennas be wrapped around the pipes either side of the water meter?

This effectively means the coils would be approx 300mm apart.
Asked by: Cosydrive
We would suggest installing the BWT Electronic Scale Inhibitor on an uninterrupted length of pipe. However, if this is not possible it can still be installed although it may not be as effective.

How long does the inhibitor last

Can you tell me how long the inhibitor last before having to replace it?

If all recommendations for installation are adhered to, and the unit is not dismantled or interfered with in any way, the BWT Electronic Scale Inhibitor should provide you with many years of service. It is maintenance free, with low running costs and energy use.
