For years, water softeners have been virtually the only means of treating hard water. Other alternatives including magnets, electro-magnets, RF devices and catalysts have been available but few have proven to be effective.

About Next-ScaleStop™

Next-ScaleStop™ employs revolutionary technological development touting all the advantages of a water softener without the disadvantages, Template Assisted Crystallization® (TAC®) offers the first proven effective and consistent scale prevention method with zero chemicals & zero waste. The Next-ScaleStop™ is more economical and has other unique benefits that water softeners do not have. Salt softeners have many limitations in commercial and industrial applications which are well recognized and understood. Next-ScaleStop™ can provide the protection needed without the restrictions associated with salt softener systems.

Proven Technology

Based on a proven process known as Template Assisted Crystallisation™ (TAC™) In simple terms this causes the scale forming crystals to stick to each other and not to metal surfaces.

Environmentally Friendly

Template Assisted Crystallisation™ (TAC™), has produced the first effective salt or chemical-free scale prevention method. Hardness minerals are converted into harmless crystals

Low Maintenance

ScaleStop replacement cartridges or media cost less than the annual salt bill for a system of similar size, and change out periods can be as little as every 3 years for higher flow rate systems.

Commercially Tested

All commercial testing and approval is reinforced by independent third party verifications through an internationally recognised testing protocol for hard scale prevention.


  • Extremely efficient – 5 seconds contact time regardless of hardness level. Conventional Ion Exchange resin requires 90 seconds.
  • No salt or other regenerants required.
  • No water waste from backwashing.
  • No brine discharge. Can be used in areas where conventional water softeners are banned.
  • Long lasting media-not consumed by the reactions.
  • Unique Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC)™ technology induces the formation of microscopic calcium crystals which effectively isolate hardness from the water chemistry.
  • No control valve or electricity required.
  • Media can be used in both conventional mineral tanks or POU cartridge form.
  • Media operates in upflow condition.


Next-ScaleStop™ has proven itself in a variety of applications as an alternative to ion exchange softening or other conventional water treatment methods. The maintenance-free characteristics make it especially suited for food service and commercial applications where equipment maintenance is often overlooked. Next-ScaleStop™ is a great alternative for residential use, especially in areas with brine discharge restrictions or where brackish water makes it impossible to operate a conventional softener.
