Scale Inhibitors


Recommended Posts

My city water is hard.  It wreaks havoc on my my appliances, such as my refrigerator ice maker.  I'm considering installing a whole house scale inhibitor.  It doesn't soften the water.  But, rather prevents the minerals from coming out of solution.  The "filter" uses a polyphosphate resin or something.  Does anyone know if this this type of scale inhibitor is safe to use for aquarium water?  I know there are issues with traditional salt-based water softening systems.  But, this does not use salt and works completely differently.

Here is link to a representative scale inhibitor:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NKETXQ/ref=ewc_pr_img_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
