HydroFLOW Pennsylvania, headquartered in Pennsylvania Furnace, PA, is the exclusive Pennsylvania distributor of the unique HydroFLOW water conditioners that are powered by the patented Hydropath technology. These environmentally-friendly devices have been distributed throughout the world for many years, but only recently entered the U.S. market. Over twenty years ago, Hydropath Technology Ltd., located in the U.K., invented a process that treats fluids by inducing a robust yet harmless signal of ±150kHz throughout plumbing systems made of any material. The pipe, and/or fluid inside of it, acts as a conduit which allows the signal to propagate. The induction of the signal prevents scale and biofilm from accumulating inside plumbing systems and gradually removes existing deposits. This preventative action significantly reduces energy, chemical, water and maintenance costs which extends the service life of equipment and pipes.
