GMX Model 848 Applications

The GMX Model 848 Device is designed for the treatment of scale and corrosion in residential, commercial, and light industrial applications or wherever difficult hard water problems exist. The GMX System controls the negative effects of hard water on plumbing systems and appliances.

  • Spas
  • Car Washes
  • Laundromats
  • Swimming Pools
  • Large Appliances
  • Irrigation Systems
  • Apartment & Condominium Buildings
  • Other Commercial and Industrial Equipment

Installing 1 or 2 GMX Model 848 Devices.
(For 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" Tubing or Pipe.)

These instructions are primarily for installing the GMX
Model 848 device in Industrial and Commercial Applications.

Two GMX Model 848 Devices Properly Installed.

  1. Place the Model 848 device against the pipe or tube to be treated.

  1. Place the backing plate on the opposite side of the pipe and align the holes with the device.

  1. Insert the nylon bolts through the holes in the device and backing plate and secure with the wing-nuts.

  1. Tighten the wing-nuts until the device is snug against the pipe. Do not over tighten !

  1. If a second device is used it MUST be mounted tandem to the first and spaced exactly 1" apart, the devices should oppose, not attract each other. The labels and arrows (if present) must point in the same direction.

Installing 4 GMX Model 848 Devices
(For 2" to 3" Tubing or Pipe.)

These instructions are primarily for installing the GMX
Model 848 device in Industrial and Commercial Applications.

Four GMX Model 848 Devices Properly Installed.

  1. For installation on 2" or 3" pipe, four Model 848 devices are configured in two (2) segments of two (2) units. The Backing Plates, supplied, are NOT used.

  1. Place two (2) Model 848's against the pipe or tube to be treated. The two devices in each segment MUST be mounted so they OPPOSE (push away - N opposite N) each other. The label on the "Top" device will read in the opposite direction to that of the "Bottom" device. If there are arrows on the devices, the bottom arrow MUST point the opposite direction of the arrow on the top device.

  1. Insert the long nylon bolts through the holes in both devices and secure with the wing-nuts.

  1. Tighten the wing-nuts until the devices are snug against the pipe. Do not over tighten !

  1. The second segment MUST be mounted tandem to the first and spaced exactly 1" apart. The labels (and arrows) on the "Top" devices of each segment should be pointing in the same direction. The label (and arrows) on the bottom devices should also point the same way, OPPOSITE the labels (arrows) of the top devices.

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.
