THE TECHNOLOGY AND HOW IT WORKS:
Welcome to the world of hydro magnetics, a
non-chemical method of softening and conditioning water that eliminates the
need for water softening equipment, and more importantly, eliminates the buying
and hauling of heavy bags of salt. However these are very effective being used
in conjunction with your existing salt-based system to help reduce build-up in
the pipes and appliances. Water, especially from private wells and
municipal water systems, picks up minerals that dissolve into it, which causes
limescale and calcium to be in your water supply pipes. These minerals cause bad
taste, odors, water spotting, and unseen build-up in your appliances and
plumbing fixtures, as well as making your hot water heater very much less efficient.
So here's how it works:
VERY POWERFUL NEODYMIUM MAGNETS CREATE A FIELD WHICH FLOWS THROUGH THE WATER PIPE INTO THE WATER. WATER ATOMS AND MINERALS ARE ELECTRICALLY CHARGED AS THEY PASS THROUGH THIS FIELD. MINERAL PARTICLES REDUCE IN MOLECULAR SIZE AND ARE PREVENTED ELECTRICALLY FROM ADHERING TO OTHER LIKE-CHARGED PARTICLES OR TO ANY OTHER SURFACES THEY MAY COME IN CONTACT WITH, INCLUDING HEATING ELEMENTS AND PLUMBING FIXTURES. INSTEAD OF BUILDING UP ON THESE APPLIANCES, THE CHARGED PARTICLES REMAIN IN SUSPENSION AND OVER TIME, BREAK DOWN EXISTING DEPOSITS IN PIPES AND HEATING ELEMENTS, WHICH ARE THEN FLUSHED THROUGH THE PLUMBING SYSTEM. THIS IN TURN ALSO ELIMINATES ALGAE AND BACTERIA, WHICH WOULD NORMALLY FEED OFF THE SCALE IN PIPES AND PLUMBING FIXTURES. A PRINCIPLE CALLED THE LORENTZ FORCE CHANGES THE MORPHOLOGY OF THE MINERAL CRYSTALS. THIS EFFECT CAUSES THE SHAPE OF THE CRYSTALS CHANGE TO ARAGONITE WHICH IS FAR LESS LIKELY TO FORM A MINERAL SCALE. NO ELECTRICITY-NO SALT-NO PLUMBING MODIFICATIONS-NO TOOLS-NO MECHANICAL ABILITY--SIMPLE 5 MINUTE INSTALL BY ANYONE.
Having no salt improves health as it reduces sodium levels in water for drinking and cooking your foods. Uses zero electricity so you won't save on salt and then have higher electric bills to offset the savings. Plus your water heater will run more efficiently saving gas or electricity. Skeptical? Understandable, as this is relatively new technology. Over a million installations and growing at the rate of several hundred every single day.
Feel free to email us and ask us about your particular situation, as our advice is free of charge and we are experts in this field. We are here to help solve your problem and will recommend just and ONLY the right size for your situation. Many customers do combine hydro magnetics with their existing salt softener for the ultimate treatment and that is fine especially for pipe maintenance.
How does it install? (Also see our Installation Info page for complete instructions and video)
Very simply straps (nylon & velcro straps included) to your main water inlet to a house or apartment and one set is all that is needed to many basic situations. Doesn't matter whether it is copper, iron, pvc, or abs. Any pipe. Any size. These are proudly manufactured in the USA, with Neodymium material unlike most other units out there. Others are selling regular ceramic magnet units, which have about a tenth or less of the power. The rating of the magnetic force is critical and there are none close to these for the price. The secret and the value is in the magnets which by themselves, are very expensive. YOU DON'T NEED A PLUMBER OR HANDYMAN. YOU CAN DO THIS YOURSELF, WITHOUT TOOLS. COMPLETELY SAFE. TAKES ABOUT TWO MINUTES. EACH UNIT CONSISTS OF A PAIR OF MAGNETIC BARS. NO PLUMBING MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED.
What are the different sizes?
Eight sizes: Standard, for smaller residential or apartment situations, Medium or Large, for residential homes or condos with moderate to severe hardness problems, private wells, and larger residential or multi-family situations and small businesses. Farm and Ranch, very large units with the significant magnetic power for larger residential homes and small industrial usage with inlet pipes up to 2 1/2" diameter and remote climates such as Australia and the western US, and Ultimate and Outback which are the most powerful units on the market and an incredible value made for the most demanding situations.
What Size Do I Need?
THIS IS ONLY A VERY BASIC RULE OF THUMB--THE MORE MAGNETIC POWER THE BETTER! YOU CAN'T PROVIDE TOO MUCH POWER. BUY WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD BUT DON'T ASK A SMALL BASIC UNIT TO DO SOMETHING IT IS NOT DESIGNED TO HANDLE.
THERE ARE 8 MODELS RANGING FROM APARTMENTS CONDOS AND RV'S TO VARIOUS SIZE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES TO COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS SUCH AS FARMS AND RANCHES, GROWERS, WATER PARKS, FISH FARMS, OIL FIELD COOLING, AND THOUSANDS OF OTHERS.
STANDARD: Best for Apartments, Condos, Mobile Homes.
DUPLEX: More power for Apartments, Condos, Mobile Homes
MEDIUM: Small Homes with less than 4 occupants and located where water is about average and supplied by municipal systems. Generally best for mid-west and eastern states.
LARGE-GRAND: Small homes with 4 or more occupants. Any home located in the western and southwestern states and Florida, and hard water countries/regions such as Australia, Middle East, South America. Also for larger homes in the mid-west and eastern states (3000 sq ft and higher). Recommended for all homes at a minimum in California. Also recommended if water is supplied by private well. THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST POPULAR MODEL AND SHOULD HANDLE MOST RESIDENTIAL APPLICATIONS.
FARM & RANCH: Large homes 3500 sq ft and higher, especially western and south-western states, farms and ranches anywhere, larger homes in Australia and other similar environment countries. For commercial applications such as farm irrigation, plant growers, water parks, commercial aquariums, Ranch environments, larger deep water wells everywhere.
ULTIMATE/OUTBACK: Same as Farm & Ranch but each model since has more magnetic power, Outback the most powerful of all our units, and Ultimate secondly most powerful. Outbacks and Ultimates are for heavier applications and are in use in countries such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Israel, Australia, and in many situations in California, especially farms.
RV: Simple made especially for RV's and can also be used effectively on mobile homes.
Where Else Can I Buy These?
You can also buy directly from Amazon.com and EBAY.
FOR AMAZON, Just type in magnetic water technology and you will see various models available.
