These things have been around in various forms for at least 15 or 20 years. They come & go in cycles. When you get into an arguement with any of the vendors these jobbies, it quickly deteriorates into an "is NOT -is TOO" playground kind of arguement. I have found the most effective way to deal with these guys is just to ask if any recognized body in North America, or boiler manufacturer, has approved these things. I did see one years ago that had a CSA sticker on it. When I checked further, it had electrical approval (there are MANY kinds of approvals) from CSA (it plugged into a 120V wall outlet). All the approval meant, in this case, was that the electrical side of if met the codes so the user wouldn't get electrocuted. It had NOTHING to do with the alleged function of the unit for water "conditioning". The other questions they don't like are "How do you know it's working?" and "How do you test the results?". They usual response is "The green light is on." When it's pointed out to them that that only indicates there's power to the bulb, and nothing more, they don't like that. If somebody like magic chrystals and pyramid power, then they'll just fall in love with magnetic water treatment.
