WHAT DO MAGNETIC WATER SOFTENERS DO
Scale forming calcium exists in water as an invisible compound called calcium bicarbonate which is Ca(HCO3)2. When the water is warmed, the balance of this compound is altered as carbon dioxide is expelled from the water changing it to calcium carbonate which is CaCO3 also known as limestone. The limestone as it forms attaches to metal surfaces as unsightly, energy robbing and flow restricting scale.
The ESF simply creates the limestone in microscopic sized particles BEFORE they reach your metal surfaces and they wash through your water system and cling to nothing.
HOW DO MAGNETIC WATER SOFTENERS WORK
Very simply in a patented process that first lowers the water pressure slightly (<5 PSI) to drive off carbon dioxide in lieu of heat to begin the formation of small “seeds” of hardness followed by a catalytic chamber to promote the growth of more crystals and 8 permanent neodymium magnetic fields to cause clustering of the crystals for longer life before being re-dissolved. No salt, no chemicals, no electricity, no drain water, and no valuable space wasted.
WHERE CAN THEY BE USED
Just about anywhere. To name a few: Schools, Hotels/Motels, Restaurants, Apartment/Condo Structures, Hospitals, Nursing homes, Reverse Osmosis pretreatment, Office Buildings, Shopping Malls, and Factories. Magnetic Water Softeners are applicable to virtually all municipal water sources and most private well waters.
ARE MAGNETIC WATER SOFTENERS A NEW PRODUCT?
No. Many thousands in a variety of iterations have been placed in service since 1996 with an extraordinarily high level of performance saving millions of pounds of salt from the environment and millions of gallons of water from going to waste.
