BWT Electronic Scale Inhibitor is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brill item Fitted a week ago on the incoming cold water main as we have hard water.A glass of water used to taste awfull.also we had to empty the kettle every time for a brew as if you reheat same water it tastes bad.These two problems have now gone.As for the lime scale on taps and shower valves/screens etc only time will tell.If it increases the life of the heating elements on dishwasher/washing machine etc then even better.Been able to just have a decent brew and drink the tap water is enough for me to believe it is doing something.Happy days.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must fit Having had a cylinder removed from a hard water area which was still ok, but the fire damage insurance paid for its replacement. I was astonished to see that the electronic water softener has kept it free of scale after 30 years. I have had this particular model in another house for seven years and it also appears to do the job. Cannot recommend this type of device highly enough, it doesn't say that it prevents lime scale marks from taps, which a salt based system should do, but it is a fit and forget system so convenience wins (because I don't clean the bathroom).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from the price is acceptable not able to give a correct rating, as an electrical engineer , quite easy to install, you will have to ask me to give you a fuller report in 14 months time, technical details are a bit sketchy , explanation of how this unit works would benefit sales in my opinion , best regards dv
