How does it work
The OneFlow® Anti-Scale System provides protection from scale formation on internal plumbing surfaces. The OneFlow® system is a single cartridge-based system that must be installed on a cold water line prior to a waterheating device (water heater or tankless water heater) for single tankless heaters.
OneFlow® prevents scale by transforming dissolved hardness minerals into harmless, inactive microscopic crystal particles.These crystals stay suspended in the water and are passed to drain. When water dries (e.g. on surfaces such as taps or shower screens) scale will reform and be visable. The system requires very little maintenance, no backwashing, no salt and no electricity. Typical hardness problems, especially build-up of scale in heating elements, pipes, water heaters, boilers and on fixtures are no longer a concern.
OneFlow® is not a water softener. It does not add chemicals. It is a scale prevention device with proven third party laboratory test data and years of successful commercial, residential and food service applications. OneFlow® is The Intelligent Scale Solution™ and is a great alternative to water softening (ion exchange) or scale sequestering devices.
Chemical-free scale prevention and protection - converts hard-ness minerals to harmless, inactive microscopic crystals making OneFlow® an effective alternative technology to a water softener for the prevention of scale due to water hardness
Virtually maintenance free - No salt bags or other chemicals to constantly add or maintain
No control valve, no electricity and no wastewater
Uses environmentally friendly “green” technology
Improves efficiency of all water heating devices and downsream plumbing components.
Simple sizing & installation – standard 3/4" connections
Perfect system for restaurants, cafeterias, coffee shops and homes where multiple or single equipment protection is desired for longer equipment life and reduced energy consumption
Inlet ball valve for easy isolation shutoff and filter changes
OneFlow® cartridge-based systems are easily maintained; change the cartridge once every two years

Style: Single Cartridge
Flow Rates: 0.5 to 10 gpm (1.9 to 38 lpm)
Applications: Tankless water heaters
Service Flow Rate:
OFTWH: up to 6 gpm, 24/7/365 for 2 years for the OFTWHRM.
OFTWHRM cartridge does not have a grain removal capacity, however, other contaminants present in the water will gradually degrade the effectiveness of this cartridge. Change the OFTWHRM cartridge at least once every two years.
Independent scientific testing has confirmed Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC) technology provides scale reduction of over 95+%. Testing was conducted under protocol based on DVGW W512 test to access control of scale formation
