Is your calcium build up actually silica on shower glass, house glass, car glass?
Be aware that the build-up of water spot problem you have in your house could be silica, not limescale, neither calcium. Last month, I was talking to a customer about scale build-up in her bathroom. She was adamant it was calcium (lime) scale and was looking for a way to remove the water spots on her shower glass, tiles and tap fittings. I explained her that there was little (if any) problem with calcium deposit or limescale in the area and she really needed a product that would address silica deposit or silica scale. (An easy way to remove calcium deposit or lime scale is to make your own polish by stirring together a quarter-cup of baking soda, one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid, dilute it with vinegar until creamy, then scrub on glass. If it works, it wasn't a silica problem and you have saved a lot of money by making your own cleaning product) She asked several people to come and quote her, but none of them could guarantee a 100% clear and spotless glass without badly scratching the glass. They all tried to sell their products or their services, but when it comes to 100% guarantee, everybody flew away. We are the only one who guarantee the result, using our own NZ made Glasso® Polish.
Silica scale is a well know problem throughout many parts of NZ and is often mistaken for lime scale. Silica is virtually impossible to remove from glass (excepts if you use Glasso® Polish) once it has formed a molecular bond, which is almost instantaneous once the water evaporates leaving the silica in direct contact with the glass, because glass is made from silica and they rapidly form a powerful bond under the right circumstances. (sun, heat etc.)
Unfortunately, she had information from sales people who cannot 'fix' silica and therefore label it calcium deposit or lime scale, so their own products look like the right choice. But it is not, and when you complain to them because it’s not working, they told you; we never said it will work on silica or we can’t guarantee 100% result. Sometimes, it’s even 10 x time harder to remove what is left on the glass after you have used some products sold on the market who leave deeply engraved droplet’s shadow afterwards (as if they had been oven cooked), or who scratch the glass so badly, it becomes very hazy and damaged.
