GMX Model 8000 Applications

The GMX Model 8000 Device is designed for the treatment of scale and corrosion in residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural applications or wherever difficult hard water problems exist. The GMX System controls the negative effects of hard water on plumbing systems and appliances.

Because there are so many different configurations, in these type of applications, please call or send an email with your particular situation and I will respond within 24 hours with my recommendations and/or suggestions.

Installing The GMX Model 8000 Device

These instructions are primarily for installing the GMX
Model 8000 device in Industrial and Commercial Applications.

CAUTION: These units are heavy and can cause serious injury or damage if dropped. Secure the units in place during installation with strapping tape before banding with the clamps.

Each GMX Model 8000 unit consists of two halves. A north half and a south half.

For 3" to 4" pipes use two (2) GMX Model 8000 units.
For 5" to 6" pipes use three (3) GMX Model 8000 units.

For 8" pipes use six (6) GMX Model 8000 units.

Instructions For Steel Banding

Note: Use fiberglass tape to hold the units in place while installing the banding. Always use caution as these units are very heavy !!!

GMX Model 8000 Clamp Installation.

  1. Hold the RACK with the words "THIS SIDE UP" towards you.

    Insert the end of the rack into the screw HOUSING and turn the screw just enough to engage the RACK.

  1. Bend one end of the BAND toward the underside to form at least a one (1") inch Hook.

    Insert the band into the "band slot" of the HOUSING.

    Wrap the band snugly around the unit and make a second bend (hook) one (1") inch past the "band slot" in the RACK.

  1. Insert the hook into the "band slot" on the RACK and flatten it to form the clamp.

    Trim off the excess band from each end LEAVING at least one (1") inch of banding pinched between the unit or pipe and the outer band at each end.

  2. Tighten the screw with a screwdriver to the desired tension. Clamp is complete


  4. Repeat this procedure for all units used in the installation.

Complete installation instructions are shipped with each device.

Additional Installation Information

The principle purpose of using the GMX System to prevent and/or achieve descaling of the plumbing, pipes, and process equipment for homes, business, and industry. Also, the GMX system will condition hydrocarbon based fuels to improve combustion and prevent unwanted varnish and scum build-up in fuel systems. Certain conditions that may impact performance of GMX System are listed below and should be addressed.

Steel Tubing, Iron or Galvanized Pipes
The penetration of a magnetic field through steel tubing / pipe (except for stainless steel) or iron pipe is minimal. If the GMX device sticks to the tubing or pipe, it won't work. The accepted method of treatment in this case is to remove and replace a 24" section of pipe with either copper, plastic, PVC, rubber, aluminum, or stainless steel tubing or pipe.

Water Clarity
After installing the GMX System, an increase in water turbidity (cloudiness) may be noted. This relates to a stabilization period of a few weeks during which calcium deposits are being removed from the system while the GMX System is descaling. It is important to monitor filters, tanks, and sumps weekly/monthly and drain or clean them as needed.

Pumps, Filters, or Turbulence
For best results, always install GMX units a MINIMUM of 24" downstream of any pump, 12" downstream of your water meter, 6" downstream of any filters and 3" from any elbow or T. Ideally, magnetic treatment requires a laminar (smooth) flow of the fluid through the magnetic field for maximum effectiveness.

Underground Pipe
In some situations, underground piping of magnetically treated water may adversely affect the treatment. Treatment of long or extensive (100 feet or more) underground water lines or sprinkler systems may require additional units.

As a rule of thumb we like to see no more than 100 feet of pipe from the point of treatment to the point of use. Most home have 50 feet or less of pipe from the point of water entry to the final point of use. Even if you install your GMX units just after your water meter you should be within these guide lines.

Electrical Equipment
The magnetic treatment of the GMX System may be decreased if electrical equipment capable of generating a strong electrical field, i.e. a welder or large electrical motor, is too close to a water line on which the units are placed. Similarly, an electric power line running next to the pipe for over 12" (in parallel) within 6" may decrease the effectiveness of the treatment. Electrical lines crossing a pipe have no effect.

Car and Truck Diagnostic Computers and Sensors
The magnetic field surrounding the GMX units can interfere with certain functions of diagnostic computers standard on late model cars and trucks. Maintain a minimum 12" separation between the units and any such equipment.

Fuel M.P.G. and Emissions
After installing the GMX System, a temporary decrease in mileage or increase in emissions may be noted. This is temporary as accumulated deposits are being removed from the fuel system and combustion chamber.
