Magnetic water conditioners, promise to be an affordable easy to install option to reduce hard water deposits on your dishes and shower. The basic premise is that you install magnets on both your hot and cold water supply lines and the magnetic fields cause the calcium deposits and other minerals to remain suspended in the water.
While the installation promises that anyone can install it without any tools in as little as 60 seconds, and it doesn’t require any electrical hookup or salt to operate. The main thing is that it does not remove or reduce the hard water and other mineral deposits like a conventional water softener or water filter would. Thus, while you may not have hard water deposits on your dishes, glasses and shower stall door, the hard water and minerals are still there.
Magnetic Water Technologies – Hot & Cold Water System
The Magnetic Water Technology, hot and cold water system weighs three pounds, and is solid steel with neodymium magnets. Hard water contains, iron and other minerals. The system changes the molecular structure of the water as it flows through the pipe, as calcium deposits remain suspended in the water. The minerals thus go through you plumbing system and out the drain, instead of building up in your fixtures pipes or worse being deposited on your dishes, glasses and shower doors.
Overall our review of this system, based on past customer feedback is that if your only concern is the hard water deposits on your dishes and shower stall and are looking for an easy to install system that is maintenance free, then this system maybe a solution. However, since the system does not remove any of the iron or hard water mineral deposits, we have to give this a less than stellar review.
