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. ScaleStop is also in compliance with CA Proposition 65 criteria concerning heavy metals and is certified to NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 , which encompasses the NSF/ANSI/CAN 372 Lead Free requirements.

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.
