Siliphos systems will help you combat the effects of hard water. There are several sizes available to suit every need. These systems are also known as “Big Blue” which refers to the canisters containing the siliphos.

The Siliphos Water Treatment is used to inhibit scale build up in water pipes and corrosion caused.
By using the Siliphos Water Treatment system in your main water supply, it will slow down and stop corrosion by forming a thin protective layer over metallic surfaces.
Scale build up on heating coils can have a significant effect on your already high electricity bill.
As a rule of thumb 1mm of scale on the heating coils in your geyser for instance will increase your energy cost by 15%.
Treat your water by placing a Siliphos treatment system in the main water supply.
The Siliphos descaler from SA Water is your answer.
By using a Siliphos Water Treatment to the main water supply of your home scale build up and corrosion will be inhibited and further corrosion will be prevented.

It can be installed in almost any water system. The system requires no electric installation and very little maintenance. The siliphos spheres just need to be refilled every 3 to 6 months depending on the quality of your water.
Refilling is quick and easy.
It utilizes the phenomenon that minute concentrations of polyphosphates are sufficient to inhibit the deposit of scale onto metallic surfaces. Because of its phosphate and silicate content SILIPHOS also slows down and stops corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the metal surface.
A SILIPHOS concentration of 2 – 3 ppm is sufficient to achieve both of these effects.
SILIPHOS will also slowly remove existing scale in old pipes if it consists of brown scale, i.e. ironoxide.
Hard scale, i.e. calcium carbonate cannot so easily be removed by SILIPHOS. Here the advantage is again that SILIPHOS will prevent further scaling up.
Experience shows that scale and corrosion is not only found in galvanized but also in copper pipes for example the pipes found in solar geyser installations. Even in plastic pipes one can find scale and deposits.
The use in tap water and other types of fresh water at the prescribed dosage is inoffensive. The components of SILIPHOS comply with FAO/WHO standards.
1. SILIPHOS Spheres
A sparingly soluble glass – like polyphosphate silicate combination of highest purity.
2. SILIPHOS Dispensers
The dispensers are installed in the water system and filled with the SILIPHOS Spheres. The tap water flows through the dispenser and dissolves minute quantities of polyphosphates. SILIPHOS dispensers don’t cause a critical pressure drop in the water mains.
SILIPHOS SYSTEMS have been installed with great success in private houses, hotels, office buildings, schools and hospitals for the treatment of potable water. They are also applied in small and medium sized industrial estates for the treatment of cooling systems, autoclaves, machine cooling etc.
