Magnetic Water Softeners
Because water softeners have become a popular trend you may think of purchasing one yourself. But what is hard water and what are its effects? Can a magnetic water softener be your solution? To make sure you pick the right product for your home it’s important to answer a few questions and we provide the answers below.
Hard Water and its Effects
Ever wonder what the residue on your glasses or clothes is after washing? Chances are you have hard water without knowing it. Hard water is water with higher concentrations of hard minerals such as magnesium and calcium. This uptake of minerals happens when water moves through sedimentary rock because water is a solvent.
To make it clearer: Soft water has a mineral concentration of 17 parts per million (ppm), moderately hard water has a total concentration of 60 – 120 ppm and hard water exceed 180 ppm.
As we know: Water is our most precious resource as it contains much nutrition your body needs to operate correctly. Dailymag Magnetic water softener will create an unlimited supply of magnetic “soft ” water. This means minerals, which have a tendency to clump together will now instead push away from each other making them smaller and as a result, easier to assimilate into your body. This is a good thing as many in the world are mineral deficient.
Magiko is a brand of Dailymag, that is for Magnetic Water Softeners.
Traditional water softeners remove calcium and magnesium from water through a filtering process or thru electricity or water pressure. When these minerals are removed from the water, they are replaced by sodium ions. The sodium cannot generally be detected in the water’s taste.
With Magiko magnetic water softeners the water is not filtered. In fact, magnetic water softeners do not remove any minerals from the hard water. They work by stopping the scale from forming in the water prior to being distributed throughout the pipes by conveying an magnetic force through the hard water as it passes through a magnetic field.
Magiko provides magnetic technologies that alter the structure of water clusters. Without magnetization toxins and waste products build up causing molecule clusters to be much larger in size, increasing surface tension, increasing viscosity and limiting dissolvability and permeability of water. This results in poor water productivity as only a small percentage of water and nutrients applied are dissolved and made available for plants to take up at fine root zones .Magnetic treatment breaks up the molecules to smaller clusters allowing them to pass through plant capillaries more readily.
Our magnetization reduces surface tension, reduces viscosity, increases dissolvability, increases permeability and increases oxygen content hence making nutrients more readily available to plants and soils. Water is then said to be biologically “alive”.
Magnetic water softeners / treatments can be explained by a phenomenon called “Magnetic-Hydromagnetic resonance” under the action of Lorentz’s force. The key parameters that influence the magnetic treatment are the velocity of water flow in the pipe and the intensity of magnetic induction.
Are Magnetic Water Softeners Reliable?
There is a lot of controversy surrounding magnetic water softeners. There are claims that they’re as efficient as traditional salt water softeners and others state there’s no scientific evidence to prove their efficacy. Research suggests that the results of studies done on magnetic softeners are inconclusive and their effects on hard water are marginal. Magnetic softeners are also unreliable in terms of giving a long-lasting effect because the water reverts to its original state after 48 hours and even when heated.
How do They Compare With Other Water Softeners?
But if you don’t pick a magnetic water softener, what other options do you have? You can try traditional softeners that work with salt by targeting minerals that cause water hardness. These systems contain resin beds which are responsible for replacing hardness ions with sodium ions in a process called ion exchange. Another alternative is salt-free softeners that use chemicals to change the composition of the water so that it doesn’t stick to surfaces as scale.
The salt-free and magnetic softeners only condition the water by changing its composition. This makes salt water softeners the most effective in reducing the negative effects of hard water scale build-up, prolonged life of appliances, harshness on skin etc. Magnetic softeners are by far the most affordable when compared with their salt and salt-free counterparts. They require zero maintenance whereas the other two require water, electricity, salt, and chemical usage.
How about water quality? Water conditioned by magnetic softeners is safer to drink as it retains essential minerals and doesn’t use chemicals or increase the sodium content of the water. This makes the magnetic softener the healthiest and most eco-friendly option. In the end, it’s up to the consumer to decide which effect he or she wants in the home.
Are They Efficient?
A water softener will save you money and improve the health of your hair & skin. Choosing the right one is important. Before spending money on a softening system, why not have your water tested to determine the level of hardness? We can see that when compared with salt and salt-free options the magnetic softeners have some great benefits. They condition the water rather than soften it and are therefore probably more efficient if your water is moderately hard. The magnetic softener is the perfect addition to a food service business which requires non-chemical water softening. These softeners are most effective at reducing scale which can become problematic in these kinds of environments.
