Most natural waters cause damages in pipes, boilers and other installations. Some contain dissolved minerals, mainly calcium and magnesium salts. Such waters are referred to as being hard.

Hard waters form scale in pipes and boilers. This leads to a decrease in water pressure and an increased energy demand. Clogged pipes may have to be replaced. Heating coils may overheat and fail.

Soft waters are aggressive to metals and cause corrosion. Consequently the tap water turns brown. Leaks and burst pipes may be the results.

Examples of corroded and scaled pipes.

Siliphos prevents scale and stops corrosion. It utilizes the phenomenon that minute concentrations of polyphosphates are sufficient to inhibit the deposition of scale onto metallic surfaces. Because of its phosphate and silicate content Siliphos also inhibits 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.
