The Aqua-Pure® Replacement Cartridge AP431 for the Aqua-Pure® scale inhibition system helps protect water heaters, dishwashers, clothes washers, and plumbing from corrosion and scale build-up. The cartridge provides a good flow rate for residential and light commercial applications. A slow dissolve rate provides consistent dosing and long cartridge life.
Manufactured by 3M Purification Inc., formerly CUNO Incorporated, the Aqua-Pure AP431 Replacement Cartridge is made from FDA DVR-21 compliant materials. It fits a canister unit 10-1/4 inches (26 cm) high and 2-3/4 inches (7 cm) in diameter. Designed for use in a cold-water line before the water heater system, the cartridge will operate at temperatures up to 100°F (37.8°C) and at water pressure up to 125 psi (862 kPa). It has a flow rate of up to 10 gallons (37.9 liters) of water per minute. The cartridge should be replaced every six months at a minimum. It is for use with Aqua-Pure AP430SS Scale Inhibitor System.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, over 70% of U.S. water supplies are designated as hard to very hard (containing elevated levels of calcium, magnesium, or both).* A visible indication of hard water is the appearance of white spots on faucets, shower doors and dishware. A less visible but more serious problem is build-up of lime and other minerals on plumbing fixtures and appliances that use water—especially water heaters. This build-up, or scale, can result in damage to fixtures and appliances, shortening their useful life. If your water is hard, Aqua-Pure® AP430SS Scale Inhibition System may provide economical, efficient protection.

3M Aqua-Pure Scale Inhibitor Replacement Filter Cartridge
Replacement cartridge for AP430SS Scale Inhibition System
Inhibits scale build-up in hot water heaters (both with and w/o tanks) & water using appliances
Polyphosphates sequester or bind calcium and magnesium hardness minerals, preventing them from precipitating out of solution and building up on metallic surfaces. Polyphosphates also form a thin protective layer on the pipe wall or metallic surface which helps to eliminate hardness build-up and corrosion
- Designed for scale and corrosion inhibition to help extend life of hot water systems, pipes and downstream plumbing fixtures
- Ideal for any size home and light commercial applications
- Easy to install and change-out cartridge

Basically it prevents scale (chemical coating) from forming in your hot water heating system. Unless you want to pay a couple of hundred dollars to have your hot water heating system flushed with acid.
A typical cartridge will last almost a year (comes with a life indicator), and best; once the hardware is installed... you can change it your self or have the burner service guy change it when he does the annual burner service....
So do not buy just one, buy two and buy two again when the last one is installed. Who doesn't want to get a few more years out of your hot water system.
