If you haven't heard of magnetic water softeners - let us explain what they are.
The concept is known as "magnetic water treatment" and it's currently not a proven technology, but certainly worth knowing about so that you can make an educated decision on the topic.
Magnetic water treatment (also known as anti-scale magnetic treatment or AMT) is a method of supposedly reducing the effects of hard water by passing it through a magnetic field as a non-chemical alternative to water softening. Magnetic water treatment is regarded as unproven and unscientific. - wikipedia.org
This same idea is applied to a magnetic water softener equipment which is meant to reduce the hardness of the water as it passes through the magnetic field that the equipment emits.
The equipment is a tool that is wrapped around a water pipe - so as the water passes through the pipe, the magnetic field then is supposed to make the water softer by pulling or changing the ions in the water.
These magnetic water softeners work more like descaling tools instead of actual water softeners.
During the process, energy is induced to the minerals which pass through the magnetic water conditioner. As water flows through it, the hard water minerals take on a different crystalline structure form when precipitated. The water develops an increased solubility factor which helps it absorb more of whatever the water may be mixed with down stream. - wwdmag.com
Here in Georgia, we are fortunate that the majority of the state has the lowest levels of hard water found in the United States. Still, with all the red clay in our soil you may want to use a water softener to help clean that up.
How Well Do Magnetic Water Softeners Work?
There have been many studies (over a hundred by some reports) on the effectiveness of these magnetic water softeners but none have come back with a resounding absolute "yes" it absolutely works. This leads many to be very skeptical of the technology.
Our recommendation therefore is to go with a traditional water softener system where you know for sure that you will be getting what you are paying for.
With over 85% of the United States relying on hard water for their cooking, cleaning, and bathing, water softeners serve a vital purpose. - freshwatersystems.com
