CareTec vs Other Filters (Anti-Scalants): Better Choice for Hard Water Filtration?

Ever notice your skin and hair feeling meh after a shower? Hard water could be the culprit, which is a major cause of a lot of skin and hair issues like hair fall, acne, skin dryness, etc. Every company in the market uses “anti-scalants” in their shower and tap filters which are only useful in removing lime scales from your taps and showers but do not help with your skin and hair issues at all!

Enter, CareTec, CareDale’s proprietary filter composition specifically designed for hardness removal in water. It is lab-tested and proven to remove hardness and thus helping with a lot of your skin and hair issues! Read along and understand how CareTec helps you and how it operates differently from the standard anti-scalants available in the market.

Hardness of water is caused by high concentration of minerals like Calcium and Magnesium. Higher the concentration of these minerals, the harder your water is. While there are no studies on the health risks associated with drinking hard water, it has adverse and lasting effects on your skin and hair.

What are Antiscalants?

Most water filter brands in India use anti-scalants in their products for treating hardness. Antiscalants work by inhibiting the formation of limescale in water, but they do not remove the Calcium and Magnesium chemicals from the water. As they have no effect on the Calcium and Magnesium composition of water, they have no effect in decreasing the hardness of the water.

What Sets Our Hardness Removal Technology Apart?

CareTec and The Science Behind It

Our hardness removal solution, CareTec, is composed of sheets with micro pores, which efficiently remove (90%) of the Calcium and Magnesium chemicals from water, resulting in water that is significantly softer and free from the negative effects of hardness. 

We collaborated with researchers from IIT Kharagpur (our alma mater) and IIT Kanpur for developing our hardness removal solution, CareTec. After extensive lab-testing, we have developed CareTec, our tested solution with proven results for reducing hardness from your water. It is designed to directly address the root cause of the problem - hard water chemicals!

Caretec vs Anti-Scalants - Understanding the Difference

Let's take a closer look at how CareTec compares to anti-scalants.

1. Hardness Removal

One of the primary advantages of CareTec is its ability to effectively remove hardness from water. This is particularly important in the context of Indian water, where hardness is a prevalent issue. Anti-scalants don’t remove hard water chemicals. CareTec is lab-tested for hardness removal proving its effectiveness.

2. Reduction of Hair Fall and Acne

Hard water has been linked to issues such as hair fall and acne. By efficiently removing hardness from water, CareTec addresses these concerns at the source. In contrast, the use of antiscalants may not provide the same level of relief, as they do not tackle hardness to the same extent.

3. Tailored for Indian Water

CareTec has been specifically designed and proven to be effective for Indian water conditions. This targeted approach ensures that the filtration system is optimized to handle the unique challenges posed by the local water supply, setting it apart from generic antiscalants that may not be tailored to the specific requirements of Indian consumers.
