How does the Healthy Home Solution water conditioner compare to magnet water treatment?
This is an important question. While we don’t want to knock the
magnets, there are some serious differences in the technology.
Magnet water treatment makes a temporary change in the polarity of the water. The key word there is temporary. When the change is taking place, a magnet will definitely reduce hard water issues. But if you don’t use the water in the specific time allotted, it will actually revert back to its original state and you will lose all the benefits. That puts a lot of pressure on the home owner to use the water immediately after it’s been through the magnet.
And anyone who does magnets properly in a home these days will not just put one in but they will put one on the water main and one on the inlet and one on the outlet of the water heater. Sometimes a magnet will need to be put on dishwasher, on the shower head of each bath and everywhere else the home owner wants to improve his water.
The costs become astronomical and the reason is they are trying to keep the polarity consistent. You need a lot of magnets to keep that polarity in place so the consumer can benefit from the magnets at all outlets.
On the other hand, our technology makes a permanent change in the
calcium carbonate. Once the water has been through our unit the
calcium carbonate has lost the majority of its attraction for itself
and metal and other types of surfaces. So it loses its ability to
bond and it is a permanent state and there are no worries in regards
to time frame in which the water must be used.
We think it is obvious this is a much easier and cheaper way to
eliminate the hard water issues in your home.
Update: Love this article from Penn State University. It pretty much crushes the whole magnet idea.
Here’s a snippet.
“There is virtually no valid scientific data to support any water treatment benefit from magnetic devices. Despite this, companies, sales representatives, and product brochures for the devices may make any one of the following claims:
- “Gives hard water properties of soft water”
- “Prevents water from forming normal chemical reactions that cause hard water scale, rust, and corrosion.”
- “Stops buildup of scale and rust and eliminates or reduces existing rust.”
- “Provides clean clothes, shiny fixtures, better health, and nice skin.”
- “Makes washing machines, dishwashers, and coffee makers run more efficiently thus avoiding costly repairs.”
- “Reduces hydrogen sulfide smells and iron buildups.”
Usually, printed testimonials from “hundreds of satisfied customers” support these claims.”
So that basically settles that argument. You do not want to bother with magnets and your water.
