The new MAX model still serves the same function of preventing scale formation, but updated technology gives it the ability to overcome and adjust to a wider range of electrical ground conditions, which has been the primary affecting variable encountered in residential applications.
MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Flow-Tech Systems announced today the impending release of the new Flow-Tech Home MAX, the latest model of its green, cost-effective, anti-scale physical water treatment system. The model features a sleek new design with a digital display and self-regulating resistance modification to insure ideal signal propagation. Since Flow-Tech Home was first introduced in 2011, the manufacturer has consistently monitored system installations and looked for opportunities to improve design and function. In 2015, the EXT model was introduced to meet the demand for a waterproof application and a more aesthetically pleasing design.One challenge remained with the need to ensure proper grounding for the system to function optimally. The new MAX model still serves the same function of preventing scale formation, but updated technology gives it the ability to overcome and adjust to a wider range of electrical ground conditions, which has been the primary affecting variable encountered in residential applications. There are various factors that determine ground readings in a home, and while the previous models had the ability to increase signal strength to overcome poor grounding, they were unable to tell the installer or the homeowner when there was a grounding issue without the use of testing instruments and the knowledge of how to interpret the readings. The MAX overcomes this issue by providing user-friendly readings from start-up on an enclosed digital screen that displays system diagnostics. The system can now alert installers and users of ground issues and assure that the system is always running properly. The unit’s new flanged design, waterproof exterior with internal power supply, and extended signal wire and power cord add to the ease of installation. Ultimately, the MAX will replace both pre-existing models and serve as the sole Flow-Tech Home model. Water quality awareness continues to grow, along with the push to find green alternatives for treating water effectively. Flow-Tech Home units have always addressed this demand, and the MAX unit makes it possible for even more people to use a space-efficient, maintenance-free, chemical-free system to treat the water flowing through their homes. Over 80% of American homes have hard water. Hard water contains dissolved calcium and magnesium. When these minerals enter a home and are subject to pressure and temperature changes (like a hot water heater), the minerals fall out of solution and form encrusting lime scale. Prior to the development of Flow-Tech Home, homeowners were forced to use traditional water softeners or expensive to maintain media systems to manage the effects of hard water. The Flow-Tech System eliminates the need for these treatments are not eco-friendly. The Flow-Tech Home system physically conditions water with a unique induction method that treats all the water in a home 24 hours a day. The system generates a low frequency that is pulsed through an entire plumbing system. The electromagnetic signal reverses the charge on the minerals that are dissolved in the water, preventing them from forming encrusting scale on the pipes in a plumbing system. Flow-Tech Home is the only system on the market that maintains a measurable signal strength and treatment throughout an entire plumbing system, regardless of flow, which means that it is always working to treat the water in a home. Flow-Tech Home is just one of the applications of Flow-Tech Systems. The team of physical water treatment specialists at Flow-Tech Systems, with over 50 years of combined experience, has designed a system that increases operational efficiencies by reducing microbial contamination, corrosion, and scale deposition — while avoiding potential health and safety problems associated with the use of chemicals. The innovative proprietary induction method used by Flow-Tech allows homes and facilities to eliminate the need for ion exchange water softeners and other chemical treatments, making it a superior solution for controlling mineral scale, bio-fouling, and corrosion. Unlike other chemical and physical water treatment systems on the market, Flow-Tech Systems has invented a method of treating all the water throughout a plumbing system, whether the water is moving or not. Flow-Tech Systems provides a cost-effective and environmentally safe solution applicable to HVAC, industrial, and residential water treatment. For more information, please visit www.flowtechhome.com.
