: : : : : By descriptions of produscers of that equipment
: : : : : it looks as a miracle ?
: : : : A general rule in life is that anything that looks too good to be true probably is. This is the case with magnetic water treatment. It doesn't work.
: : I have to disagree. I bought a dish washer recently an the technician installed it together with a clamp-on magnet. I moved the magnet back along the feed line to just before the cold water tap. It has had a marked effect on my electric kettle Scale starts to build up but as it changes from grey to white it fdalls off leaving the bright metal element unerneath. After some weeks when I could see that it had some effect, I bought an inline magnet for the rising main.
: : The effect has been to remove the yellow scale from my shower room, especially from the white PVC window frame.
: So you have stock in the company eh? OR you sell these things.
: They dont work! Its a gimmick to get your money.
I am a full Professor in Elecronics in an Israeli Engineering College. I have no commercial intetest whatsoever in firms selling magnets. I do know that I have completely stopped the build of scale in my electric kettle and in my shower.
I also have had some 41 years of experimetal research some of it in electrolytic solutions so I feel that I can trust my own observations in these matters. Check my home page for lists of my publications
